Cabo in November: Stripers, Dorado and More


As one of the top angling destinations on the planet, Cabo San Lucas at the very end of Baja California always lives up to its reputation of angling adventure. As the brand that embraces the ocean lifestyle in everything we do, we love it when our Pro Team members get a chance to head out and fish some of these fabled locations. PELAGIC girls Amber Marchant and Vicky Stark just returned from a week of fishing and diving in Cabo San Lucas, MX. They landed Striped Marlin, Dorado, Roosterfish and Bluefin Trevally.

The Marlin fishing has been off the chain in Cabo this fall, and the girls were excited at the prospect of landing their first Marlin. They didn't have to wait long before this dream became a reality! Enjoy the photo collage from their awesome trip below.
