Located at the extreme tip of the 1,000-mile-long Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas straddles both the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, offering up a dizzying variety of blue-water species for the visiting angler. Blues, blacks, wahoo and huge dorado all congregate on the many banks that dot the offshore waters or pass through on the swift currents that bring a wealth of nutrients and predators sweeping into the area. But it's the frisky striped marlin that provides the bread-and-butter fishing for Cabo's huge charter fleet. When the bite is on, the amount of fish caught reaches staggering numbers. This past year, the Finger Banks, just 50 miles out of the port, hosted one the best striped marlin bites in recent memory. Capt. George Sawley on Stalker caught over 1,700 striped marlin in just 27 days. Now that's red-hot fishing on the edge of the desert!
