Default Cabo late March

We are headed to Cabo on March 25th and wanted to see if any of you guys knew what was biting that time of year and if it’s worth trying to fish? Also any really good charters you could recommend with nice boats? Thanks in advance! This will be my first trip to that area.

Some tuna are biting now as well as striped marlin on the Pacific side. We caught one about 30 kilos at El Bajo near La Paz on Friday, very unusual for winter.
I rely on Gordo Banks Pangas for a weekly Saturday morning fishing report. The report is focused on activity out of Playitos, Marina Los Cabos, San Jose del Cabo. The report is spot on and as accurate as any report I have witnessed. Other reports focus on the open Pacific out of Cabo San Lucas. There is your best shot for striped marlin with multiple shots per day.
There are multiple threads on everyones' favorite charter captain on THT.
I suggest focusing on where you want to stay and your target species and start looking.

The cape? Do you mean East Cape? If so a lot more than 15 minutes to CSL
If you are staying near San Jose del Cabo (near the airport) you should fish there. You don't want to be riding in an expensive cab if you could be fishing.

40 bucks one way from San Jose to Cabo. Fished out of San Jose this past fall had a great experience

Always worth fishing in Cabo. I like Redrum Charters, but there are plenty of good ones. Plenty of bad from what I understand as well...
