I'll see it I can find his contact info but there is a guy (Randy?) that specializes in beach fishing for roosters off the beach on the Pacific side out of Cabo. He loads his clients on a quad and heads off in search of rooster fish, jack crevalle or sierra mackerel.

He and I shared a few cervesas one afternoon after we had met on the beach. He is a great guy and works hard for his clients. Once you hook a rooster in the surf you'll be ruined for life. A 15-30# fish swimming past you in 2' of water at 20 mph leaves a lasting impression...

April is good timing. The surf season is heating up and the chubascos (high winds or Santa Anas) are starting to settle down.

I'm still tied up with work but I'll try to find his contact info.

OK, back again. Captain Randy is no longer operating in the Cabo area, or anywhere else that I can see. An excellent source of info is Jansen Tackle in Cabo their website is http://jansen.mx/. I think they work with either the local surf guides or actually offer a guide service. Your trip will be a fishing trip of a life time.

We have had a timeshare at Cabo 6-7 years and we go down there in Dec with friends who also have timeshares every year. Two of us went out on a charter last Dec, really windy and not too good. No Marlin, Tuna and Dorado and that was it. I'd like to do a surf deal too, sounds like more fun than offshore. But the guide would have to provide transport since we don't rent cars there.

We just picked a boat on the Dock near "The Surfboards" which is a landmark. They were OK, nothing special, just OK. But don't eat the lunch they offer. Out of 14-15 folks in our group, only two of us got stomach problems, me and my bud who went fishing! Didnt hit us until the nt before we flew home, interesting trip home.
