BEWARE: Please beware of the guys in the street selling boat charters. If you wait until the day you are fishing and go to the dock where your boat is, many times people will mislead you to another boat or dock trying to put you on a boat that was not meant for you. You need to have a person guide you to your boat, who is from a reputable charter company. This way there is no confusion or misleading. Please remember when renting Sport fishing boats in Cabo that you rent your boat from reputable and established business. Walk into a fishing fleet office and ask questions about what you are getting and what are the costs. You don't want to rent boats from vendors on the streets, and you do not want to book through shady websites offering you the world. Check through travel forums about reputable fishing fleets to deal with. Look for testimonials about the fleet you're booking your charter with. Ask about what the boat will be supplying. Will it include beverages or lunches? How much does it cost to fillet your catch? Check to see if the charter boat is insured. Ask about getting your catch smoked. Check the cost of a fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in the next week's fishing report. Until next time, good fishing, and we hope to see you in Cabo soon. Come by the office here in Cabo and get all the latest up-to-date fishing report.
