This destination is hosted by a well known fisherman, Grant Hartman.
Here you are going to find the highest quality fly and spin gear on board our boats at all times.
If you are a fly fisherman we have Sage and G.loomis rods with Abel and Tibor reels and loaded with RIO fly lines. Only the best.
If you like spinning, we have light G.Loomis and TFO Spinnig rods with Shimano reels loaded with braid Spiderwire.
Fish come to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for the feast. We invite you to come for a fly fishing or light tackle fishing experience you will remember for a lifetime.
When your fishing day starts, when the sun rises over the East horizon and the harbor is alive with anticipation; when you motor out past the arch rocks with a chorus of sea lions barking and frigate birds circling; all this before the first hurrah of "fish on". Then you will know the true joy of bluewater fly and light tackle angling with us.
The Sea of Cortez is a giant fish trap. Warm waters with shrimp, squid, sardines, herring, mackerel and other food flow to Pacific predators like blue marlin and Black marlin, striped marlin, yellowfin tuna, dorado (mahi mahi or dophinfish), and wahoo. Close to shore roosterfish, jack cravelle, Sierra mackerel, red & cubera snapper, 3 kinds of trevally, yellowtail, black skipjack, pompano, grouper, lady fish and others abound.
In this destination we use exclusively 26' Glacier Bay Catamarans.
The boats are custom built, 26 ft., ocean catamarans powered by twin 4 stroke engines that are quiet, fume free and powerful. Our safe and soft riding cats are engineered to handle all sea conditions and have your safety, comfort and fishing convenience built in. You will find clear casting areas fore and aft, T-tops for shade and enclosed head for the ladies aboard.
Fishing Rods & Reels
Our fishing day includes the use of top quality light tackle. Shimano reels, Loomis rods are on board. Some light tackle lures are custom designed. Lure usage is included. Lure loss is charged.
Blue water fly rods (10 wt - 14 wt) are loaded with high quality Abel or Loomis reels are available for daily rental. Having the correct tackle is always important but it is critical when you do battle with big blue water predators. A 50 pound yellowfin tune generates thrust equal to 8 horsepower. Imagine the stress when you hook a 100# plus marlin.
We use high quality 12#-30# light tackle lines and the best intermediate intermediate and deep sinking lines on our fly reels. Proper lines and line backing are available in-store.
You can use your own leaders but again, the most suitable leaders are found in-store. If you are after world records we carry tippet material meeting IGFA requirements for the Kilogram levels you want to fish.
The flies are designed by Grant Hartman and specifically replicate local live bait. Most of the 70 world records were caught on Grants flies. A full selection of proven flies are available. A Captain's box of the best flies will be on board your boat. Flies used are charged. Patterns imitate sardines, herring, mackerel and other baits in sizes 2/0-6/0 if you are tying at home.
Clothing should allow you to layer down during the day. Mornings are often cool. Rain/splash gear can add to your comfort. Polarized sunglasses are a must and we offer the best. Great hats are available in store or you can bring the "old reliable".
Finally, know that you will need to purchase live bait or chum each fishing day to help assure the level of action you want.
