If you’re a first-timer and never gone for deep sea fishing in Cabo, you should read this post carefully beforehand. However, around 99.9% fishing in Cabo is done using trolling. However, trolling is a simple method that involves the boat pulling lines behind with lures, teasers and live bait to attract fish.

Some boats will have as much as six lines in the water simultaneously.
