RedRum Sportfishing wins reader’s choice award, Best Fishing Charter in Cabo!!

Over 5,000 tourists and residents vote Redrum Sportfishing the “Best Fishing Charter” in Los Cabos in Cabo Social Magazine’s 2010 Best of Cabo “Reader’s Choice” Awards

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico:  Redrum Sportfishing has won the “Reader’s Choice” award for “Best Fishing Charter” in Los Cabos in Cabo Social Magazine’s Best of Cabo 2010 awards contest. “Reader’s Choice” award winners were selected by over 5,000 readers of Cabo Social Magazine, who voted for their favorite Los Cabos businesses. Covering everything from luxury products to celebrity features, Cabo Social Magazine is published three times a year, reaching well-to-do Cabo residents and visitors alike.

“This is a people’s choice award, which has a lot of meaning,” says Ryan Donovan, spokesperson for Redrum Sportfishing. “It’s the most grassroots way to rate the best fishing charter in Los Cabos, and we’re very proud that people have chosen us as the top sportfishing outfit.”

A family-owned and operated business, Redrum has deep roots in Cabo San Lucas. John Donovan, who oversees the fishing charter operation, has been fishing the waters off Cabo since 1984. He is helped by son Ryan (who has fished in Cabo since 1999 and has taken the stage at many of Cabo’s top tournaments), Ryan’s Spanish-speaking wife Brooke (who arranges condo accommodations for clients) and 12 full-time captains, mates and mechanics.

They pride themselves on offering great customer service, which includes being upfront and honest, even if that sometimes includes disappointing news. “If your dream is to catch marlin, but they’re not biting right now, we’ll tell you that,” says Donovan. “There are no surprises when you fish with us. And we tell you from the outset exactly what your charges are – we won’t spring an extra tax on you the morning of your charter or ask you later to pay for bait or a dock fee.”

Many of the crew have remained loyal to and worked with Redrum for over a decade. “From the owners right down to the guys who clean the boats, we’re all Team Redrum here,” says Donovan. “We treat our staff right; they treat our customers right.”

Treating the customers well is one reason why Redrum has a repeat client base of 65 to 70%, adds Donovan. “Once people come fishing with us and get to know the staff and fishing guides, they’re hooked. Lots of our customers have timeshares here in Cabo and they see us year after year.”

Redrum Sportfishing operates premier fishing charters out of Cabo San Lucas, known as the “Marlin Capital of the World.” Their fleet of seven top-of-the-line boats ranges from one of the fastest 28-footers in Cabo to a first-class, 53-foot, twin-engine yacht for a luxurious day on the water. Redrum caters to both seasoned anglers and those casting a rod for the first time, and is one of the few charter operations to offer kite fishing.
