Best Lures for Cabo San Lucas Sports Fishing
Here are some of the best types of lures that are used by anglers for trolling, teasing and catching different species of game fish of different sizes found in the waters of Cabo San Lucas.
Available in multiple colors, a jig features a weighted head made from zinc or lead. The heavy head of this lure ensures that it stays in the right position after casting, increasing your chances of attracting fish and catching a bite. Jigs are quite versatile and can be dressed with feathers, fake insects, bait fish and rubber worms which also help conceal hooks.
To catch a bite with jigs, it is extremely important that you know how to use them. Once you cast it, you need to make sure that it hops. Make the jig hop by lifting the rod’s tip and then lowering it. This technique helps attract almost all types of game fish (especially Big Yellow Fin Tuna), which is probably why it is considered as the best way to tease big fish resting at the bottom of the water.
Hard Body Lures
When targeting marine species like Marlin, Tuna or Dorado, consider using hard body and rubber skirted trolling lures. These lures can mimic live baits and are proven to entice game fish species to bite on your line.
Featuring a spinning-blade, dressable hook and metal shaft, this lure is widely used by anglers in low light conditions and when water clarity is an issue. After casting, fishing enthusiasts drag this lure in the water. The dragging movement makes the blade spin, which creates sound and vibration in the water, much needed to attract prey. When the fish hears the sound and feels the presence of this lure, it begins to come closer, making it easier for you to catch.
These lures have a unique curved-metal construction, featuring one, two or three hooks. The curved shape of the lure makes it move side-to-side and has a slow forward motion. This type of motion resembles the movement of injured bait fish which encourages big game fish to come closer and investigate it. And that gives anglers the perfect chance to hook and catch a big game fish!
