Cabo San Lucas, long considered the marlin capital of the world, has over 50,000 marlin, sailfish, and swordfish hooked a year. This is the place to go to catch a billfish with a fly rod. There are several companies in the region that cater to the fly fisher. All have trained crews to assist in your pursuit of billfish on a flyrod. Tuna, dorado, wahoo and roosterfish provide exceptional fly rod action as well. Beach fishing along the corridor can be exciting too. With over 16 vehicle-accessible beaches between San José Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, the adventurous fly fisher can spend an entire vacation exploring and fly fishing the shoreline and these beautiful beaches. Each is near or separates a hotel of resort of some kind, so amenities are nearby.
