East Cape is on the Sea of Cortez side of the peninsula, one hour north of the famed resort town of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The Fishing

The Baja Peninsula and the warm tropical waters of the Sea of Cortez boasts incredible blue skies and dry, sunny weather to snorkel, swim or fish. The protected waters of the Sea of Cortez are typically a much calmer nautical experience than fishing the offshore waters of the Pacific or Atlantic oceans. The Peninsula is over a thousand miles long and is a desert with a mountain range, beautiful beaches and offshore reefs. It's the fishing that Baja is best known: Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna, Yellowtail, Roosterfish and Dorado.

Fishing the Sea of Cortez is still dominated by local family fishermen and adventuresome sportsmen. Both have garnered a certain love and respect for the prized resource and work diligently to protect it. Both local captains and North American anglers have united to practice catch and release to ensure a long and rich resource for many generations to come.

Cabo comes into it's own during the winter months. From early January to April, this area is hot for marlin and sails. But, don't expect multiple hookups. That doesn't happen here. One or two fish per day per boat. Accommodations range from ultra beach resorts to more common condo developments. The Cabo area has been heavily developed over the past twenty years in cooperation with the Mexican Government.

The real reward of fishing in the East Cape region is the opportunity to step back in time, leave the stress and pace behind and to enjoy a rich and unspoiled diverse fishing environment found nowhere else in the world. You will come away from your East Cape fly fishing experience with new appreciation, new skills and a new passion for a unique and beautiful corner of the world.
