Wow amigos, where do we even begin, right?

What a crazy year this has been. We wanted to share a bunch of news with the extended Team RedRum family of clients, as well as those of you who may be trying to choose a charter here in Cabo for the first time.

Is Cabo open/Is RedRum fishing?

YES! Cabo is open and international flights are arriving daily. There is no mandatory quarantine when traveling to Cabo or when you return to the United States from here, (not sure on Canada as of 6/30.) We were able to get back on the water on the 15th of June and have been fishing everyday since. Oh, and the fishing is really good right now! Many hotels, restaurants and bars opened the 15th as well, and more seem to be opening every day.

Is Cabo safe and clean/Were you hit hard by Covid?

I’ve been told by more than a few clients that Cabo is cleaner and businesses were doing more to ensure their health and safety than many of the places they were visiting from. Cabo certainly had some Covid cases, but we were never really a “hot spot.” Because we rely so heavily on tourism Cabo pretty much shut down the last week of April like most places in the states.

What measures are you taking at RedRum to ensure the health and safety of your guests and crews?

Any business that is open in Cabo right now has gone through a pretty lengthy process with our local government to ensure we are well educated and have put the necessary safety measures in place. As for the sportfishing fleet, that means less passengers per boat, a thorough cleaning between charters for every boat, and personal protective gear for the crew.

How did the shutdown affect the RedRum family?

Well, to be completely honest, like many small businesses around the world this deal has kicked our butt. We went nearly 3 months without a charter, or any other income for that matter and unlike the United States, Mexico didn’t have any payment protection programs to offer or any stimulus checks. We’ve always preached “Family” here at RedRum so our number 1 goal from the start was to be able to continue to provide paychecks to all 25 of our team members, no matter how long this thing lasted. Thank god, we were able to do that. That being said, being able to do so came with some sacrifices.

What’s different at RedRum post shutdown?

Well, first off we are having to move. We couldn’t justify the cost to stay where we were over feeding families. This is bittersweet for sure. After more than 10 years in the same location we’ve only been in our current spot for 3 years and we put a lot of love into it. That being said, we are moving around the corner and we’ll be back in front of our boats. And yes, we are rebuilding The Porch Bar in front of our new space too. Check the map to see the new location. We are still a few weeks away from completion, but I think everyone is going to be super pleased with the results.

The other big change is the number of boats in the water. Again, we couldn’t justify paying slip fees for the entire fleet while they weren’t being used so we are returning to action with a limited selection of boats. We hope to have the entire fleet back in the water by the end of the year, but we’ll see. Click here for a list of the current offerings. As I mentioned, we have reduced the capacity (per local ordinance) of each boat, so if you have any questions on the pricing please let us know.

In closing, I want to make sure this info doesn’t come across the wrong way. We understand that everyone has been dealt a tough hand this year and we aren’t asking for any sympathy or special favors, I just wanted to be honest with everyone. We appreciate your continued support of our family owned and operated business and please understand we were thinking about y’all during these crazy times as well.

That being said, LET’S GO FISHING and HAVE SOME FUN!!!!
