Here is a typical day at RedRum Sportfishing in Cabo San Lucas…

The morning of your charter we ask you to be at the RedRum office between 6:15 and 6:30 a.m. We will be there to greet you and get you checked in. During check-in, we will take care of any balance you might have, get your Mexican fishing license, and answer any last minute questions you may have.
Meeting Your Crew
While you are at the office checking in, the crew is stocking your boat with lunches, water and ice. After check-in, you may have a few free minutes to grab a coffee or any additional snacks or drinks you may want on the boat for the day. As soon as the boat is ready, we’ll introduce you to the crew and walk you down to the boat.
We have a few stops to make before we can get out on the water and the first is taking a minute or two with the Port Captain. The Port Captain will check to make sure you have your Mexican fishing license ( so keep it handy, ) and will also make sure the boat’s paperwork is up- to- date.
Making Bait... Cabo Style
Included in your charter is a combination of 10 live/dead baits, depending on what the fish are eating and what is being caught. At times, the quality or quantity of bait is unpredictable. If you would like more bait, this is the time to let your mate know. If available the bait runs 3 dollars per piece.
Heading to the Fishing Grounds
Now the fun part! You are off to the fishing grounds. Depending on where the fish are biting or if you have a species preference, the captain will make a decision on where to get things started. If you haven’t done so yet, this is a good time to talk to the captain about your fishing expectations for the day. Be sure to check out our fishing calendar to give you a good idea of what species are typically around when you are here.
Catching Your Trophy
While you are out on the water please remember that you don’t have to harvest everything you catch. If you are not interested in eating any of the fish or bringing the fish back home, please let the crew know that you would like to Catch and Release. If you would like a replica or trophy made of any of the fish you’ve caught, please let the crew know and they can measure the fish, before releasing it.
Fish Cleaning Station
Once you finish up out on the water, we have to stop at the fillet station to have your fish cleaned. Mexican law prohibits us from doing this for you. The process only takes a few minutes and the cost is only a few dollars per fish. Your captain and/or mate will be happy to take care of this process for you if you would like. Once you’re done at the fillet station, we’ll vacuum seal, freeze and store your fillets until you are ready to head to the airport.
Back to Headquarters to Brag!
Expect to return back to the dock around 2:30-3:00 P.M. Please come back by our office and tell us about your day, we love feedback and fishing tales and want to hear how your day went. You can also pick up some RedRum gear to take home with you and/or get set up to do it all over again
From top of the line electronics to the best line and leader material, often times it’s the little things that make a difference out on the water. You may or may not know the first thing about offshore sport fishing and that is fine, we do. We know what it takes to consistently come back to the dock with fish. We’re constantly re-investing resources back into the boats and giving crews the equipment they need to get the job done. You’ll find that all our boats are professionally-maintained with the tackle needed to have a great day on the water. It might go unnoticed to the novice angler, but there is a reason RedRum comes back with the flags flying every day, showing off our catch. To be the best in this game, you need the very best equipment and you can’t skimp on the small stuff.
At RedRum, we feel very strongly that we provide our clients with a very fair and reasonable price for an excellent product. This isn’t to say that sportfishing is a cheap hobby, it’s anything but. We know that other companies may charge less than we do for the same size boat, but it’s not the same product. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.” The person who came up with that saying probably spent some time on his or her fair share of charter boats. You won’t find a better product for a comparable price anywhere in Los Cabos. Your search ends with RedRum Sportfishing.
Our crews have excellent reputations. They’ve committed to work hard for every client and are always finding ways to improve their English skills so they can consistently engage clients. With their excellent reputations come lots of new and repeat customers. Our crews fish 5 days a week on average, throughout the year. With 5-10 RedRum boats out on the water every day, working together and communicating with the rest of the fleet about what is and isn’t working, we have a huge advantage over the rest of the boats in Cabo. Fishing day in and day out allows our crews to closely monitor the fishery and stay on top of what is happening and where. It’s a big ocean once you get a few miles offshore and it’s nice to have several boats out there every day finding the hotspots and calling the others over.
