Cabo San Lucas is internationally known for its incredible fishing charters! Such an exciting adventure! In the month of February the Cabo San Lucas Fishing Charters are reeling in, bonito, grouper, marlin, hammerhead shark, roosterfish, jack crevalle as well as snapper and yellow fin tuna. Reports coming in are that most boats are having great days and great catches!
Afterwards, as you are coming back to the Cabo San Lucas Marina, you might be wondering what choices are available for your fresh catch. It might be a good time to clean the fish, fillet it and wrap it up, (put on ice) and head to a local restaurant for a celebration and astonishing meal! But who will clean and pack the fish? Or is it too late to set up taxidermy? Can I possibly carry this home, but how? After researching these topics, I was surprised to see that many options are available.
After contacting a few restaurants in the area, I discovered it’s very easy to have your fresh catch turned into a fantastic dining experience. Setting this up ahead of time is important. If your favorite restaurant is not listed below, give them a call; most likely they will accommodate your requests.

Taxidermy is an option. Especially if you have a beautiful catch. Depending on the fish, this could be a wonderful idea. If you are thinking of releasing the fish some things to consider are: measurements of the fish that are precise. Also photos would be a plus. Trip Advisor would be a good source to determine the taxidermy company of your choice. Fiberglass is an option used to make the replica of the fish.
