Captain Mario Juarez is from La Paz, Baja but was raised in Cabo. He has been fishing for 10 years now and loves releasing roosterfish and the challenge of Marlin from the panga when the season and conditions permit. He finds joy in fishing from the panga because of the closeness to the ocean and the distinct way of fishing aboard. Most of all Mario loves to surpass his anglers expectations and make sure they have a memorable experience. One of his most prized catches is an 80 lbs Roosterfish Released (approx). He speaks good english.
A Panga is a skiff with an outboard motor. This type of vessel has a simple fighting chair as well as extra seating for 2 or 3 passengers and just one crew member (Captain). Pangas regularly have a "porta potty", rather than an enclosed toilet & some shade. A regular trip is for 5 hours & usually close to shore, though you may travel anywhere from 1 to 10 miles parallel to the coast, generally up the Pacific side, depending on the fishing season.
The tackle offered is light, from 20 lbs. to 40 lbs. test, depending on the season & species targeted. There are many inshore species that are worth fishing for, some of them are delicious to eat and some of them are fantastic to fight and release! Keep in mind that your catch can be cooked five different ways at Captain Tony's restaurant on the marina next door to the Pisces Reservation Office.
Cabo waters offer a rich variety of smaller game fish such as Spanish Mackerel (sierra), Rooster fish, Red Snapper, Jack Crevelle, Yellow Tail, Rock fish, Lady Fish, Amber Jack, Grouper, Trigger fish, Dorado, Yellow Fin Tuna and you might even be able to fight a Marlin or a Sailfish if they stray closer to shore.
