Baja Sur

Welcome

Sportfishing Means Business

Due to its favorable geographic location, Baja California Sur’s extensive coastline is teeming with an abundance of marine life. No matter what the season of the year, there’s something for everyone; from amateur fishermen (and fisherwomen) to tournament pros. Here, where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, fishing has become an extraordinary sport. In these waters, visitors can put their skills to the test fishing for yellow tail, tuna, Wahoo, dorado, sailfish and the legendary black, blue and striped marlin.

Welcome to Los Cabos Mexico! Could anything be more beautiful than the desert green after summer rains? As you relax under brilliant blue skies and appreciate the cooler temperatures that accompany the fall and winter months, you’ll also enjoy the towering cardones that stand guard over bugamvilia and lush green native vegetation. The hillsides are a marvel at this time of year and the September hurricane season provided us with a remarkable present.

Baja Sur fishing tournaments have become a big business and the 2007 season is already underway. In their twentyfive year run, the world-renowned Bisbee’s Black & Blue tournaments have produced some record-breaking prize money: the first million dollar payout for blue marlin (2003), the first double million dollar payout (2005) and the largest single payout in sport fishing history (2006) — $3.9 million US dollars.

Fall and winter events in Los Cabos will leave you with a scrapbook full of wonderful memories. Sailing and fishing aficionados have a treat in store with the October Bisbee’s Los Cabos Offshore Tournament. Be sure to check out the article on page 4 for dates and deadline information. You’ll also want to read about two incredible marinas — one in Cabo San Lucas and the other in San Jose del Cabo.

Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore Tournament ran from July 31st through August 4th and 64 boats caught 320 billfish. The cash awards totaled $351,300 and the Tournament Award went to Captain Ramon Tamayo and angler Julio Cota aboard the 28-foot 3 Hermanos who landed a 418 pound blue marlin! The total cash netted by this single catch was $97,646, which works out to $233.60 per pound!

After a “hard day” of fishing, enjoy world class dining and shopping. You’ll find all your questions answered on the following pages. And if by chance you have another lingering question, drop us a line. We want to make our publication number 1 on your list of “must reads.”

Bienvenido a Los Cabos México! No hay nada más bello que ver reverdecer el desierto después de una abundante época de lluvias. Aquí estamos en medio de la belleza desértica y marina de la Baja Sur, rodeados de bugambilias, cardones y un esplendoroso sol, esperando la fresca brisa del invierno. Después de un arduo día de diversión, pesca y sol no puede faltar la buena comida y la buena bebida. Te tenemos excelentes sugerencias, en nuestras guías de restaurantes y actividades.

By: Richard J. Archer

Bisbee’s Los Cabos Offshore Tournament ran from October 19 through October 21 and fishing was from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. This year’s cash awards totaled $273,120. The big event of the season was Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Tournament, which ran from October 23rd to October 27th, with fishing on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. This year’s cash awards totaled more than $3.8 million and 166 teams took part in the competition. The top prize of $734,415 went to the team of Angel and the Badman II for a 620 lb. blue marlin. October also saw the first annual La Paz Gold Cup Black & Blue Marlin Tournament with prizes totaling $1.5 million pesos and a new Ford Lobo (F-150) pickup. First Place went to Mark Rayor, who caught a 395 lb. blue marlin. If you weren’t in Cabo for the tournaments, or if you’re not into competitive fishing, don’t worry. You can still experience the thrill of “landing the big one” by contacting one of the many charter services based in our local marinas. Baja Sur boasts some of the best fishing in the world and a total of 850 different varieties swim our seas. Fish on!

CMG Interview

Plan Your Next Company Event in Los Cabos!

Creating a successful meeting or incentive program is a complicated process. It takes planning, knowledge and attention to detail but it also requires an intimate knowledge of the meeting site and the surrounding area. It takes an expert!

Adam Lawhorne created Meeting Incentive Experts because he saw a need for a total service solution in the Los Cabos area. Recently, Cabo Marine Guide had an opportunity to chat with Mr. Lawhorne about his company, the destination management industry and Los Cabos. CMG: So, Adam, what exactly is a destination management company, anyway? AL: In a nutshell, a destination management company or DMC plans, organizes and executes events for groups in specific geographic locations or destinations. Typical events include company meetings, incentive programs and team-building retreats. CMG: What kinds of services does your company provide? AL: Since attendees typically travel long distances to attend these events, our job is to arrange every detail of the event in advance. This can include airline consulting, ground transportation, hotel accommodations, theme parties, meeting services, activities, tours and team building events. CMG: That sounds like a big job! What makes your company different from your competitors? AL: Because we have offices in both the United States and Mexico, we can effectively and efficiently coordinate with our clients during the planning process.

Long known as a world-class sport fishing destination, the Los Cabos area also features some excellent scuba and snorkeling sites. In addition to the sites shown in our Land’s End map, there are a number of sites along the “corridor” between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. These include Inner and Outer Chileno Bay (20'-80'), the Blow Hole (30'-80'), Santa Maria Cove (20'-40'), Twin Dolphin (20'-50') and Whales Head (25'-60'). Tours are also available to the beautiful Cabo Pulmo National Marine Preserve, Gordo Banks and the remote and pristine Socorro Islands where you can dive with the giant Pacific manta rays, dolphins, seven species of sharks and – if you’re lucky – maybe even a migrating humpback whale! Cabo dive operators provide a full complement of services, training and equipment and range in size from small, local shops to larger PADI International Resort facilities. Tours are available for every level of diver, including non-divers. There are “resort” courses for first-time divers and certification programs for all levels through Dive Master. For the more experienced diver, wreck dives and night dives are also available.

The Upsouth Cup 2007 is the first annual event in which sail boats in Los Cabos, BCS, compete to win the coveted UPSOUTH trophy. This year only 6 crews participated in class J-24 launches, 24-foot rigs operated by 4 or 5 person crews. These ships are particularly entertaining because of their synchronized teamwork among crew members, which allows them to carry out feats in the best time possible. These “single design” ships are required to have identical measurements and specifications in order to assure that none has an advantage over its competitors. This makes the abilities of crew members determine their advantage over other crews. Participants in this first great regata launch in Los Cabos hope the excelent practice conditions, brought on by Los Cabos’ sea and wind characteristics, will establish the strongest sailboat community for the event.

La Copa UpSouth 2007 La revista UpSouth, el Club de Yates de Los Cabos, A.C. y muy distinguidos patrocinadores hicieron posible la primera Copa Upsouth 2007. Se celebró el día 25 de noviembre como un evento sin precedente, que sin duda, marcará historia en Los Cabos. Compitieron 6 tripulaciones en embarcaciones clase J-24 de 24 pies de eslora, operados entre 4 y 5 tripulantes para ganar el codiciado trofeo UpSouth. This type of event is a wonderful family activity, promoting teamwork, a competitive spirit and ecológical awareness. Sailing’s characteristic wind propulsion is particularly harmless to our environment!

Estos barcos “one design” permiten destacar la habilidad de las tripulaciones mientras compiten y coexisten en armonía con el Mar de Cortes ya que su único medio de propulsión es el viento.

Future UPSOUTH Cups hope to attract many more participants of differing age groups (beginning at age 8) and many more categories, encouraging more aficionados and promoting advanced sailing skills.

Las futuras regatas prometen mayor número de competidores, diversidad de embarcaciones y categorías desde los 8 años de edad para que participen los pequeños adeptos a la vela!

The first annual event was brought about thanks to Upsouth magazine, Club de Yates de Los Cabos, A.C. and numerous sponsors and supporters of this project.

B A Message from the Past – Cave paintings are one of the many tourist attractions found throughout the Baja Peninsula and scientists have little information on these paintings because they have only been studied for about 20 years. Baja’s first settlers where amazed by the beauty of this rich land and they painted full stories for generations to come. It is believed that they are thousands of years old and spread throughout a 12,000 sq km territory, mainly in the central region of the Baja Peninsula. The settlers depicted human shapes, hunting scenes, manta rays, fish, sea lions, whales, deer, snakes and hares, usually painted in yellow, black and red colors. These paintings are found in La Paz, Todos Santos, Loreto, Santa Rosalía and Mulegé. They are usually located in secluded areas and guided tours are always recommended. Ask your concierge about cave painting tours while visiting Los Cabos. A tour will probably take you away from your hotel in Cabo for a day or two but it will be an adventure to remember!

Las pinturas rupestres son una de las tantas atracciones turísticas que ofrece la península de Baja California. Poco se sabe de estas pinturas y de las culturas que las hicieron ya que sólo existen 20 años de investigación al respecto. Los primeros habitantes de la Baja debieron estar muy impresionados con todo aquello que los rodeaba puesto que se vieron obligados a plasmarlo dejando así un testimonio silencio para generaciones venideras. Se cree que estas pinturas datan de miles de años y se encuentran en la región central de la península en un territorio que abarca 12,000 kilómetros cuadrados. Estos pobladores primitivos dibujaban figuras humanas, escenas de cacería, manta rayas, pescados, lobos marinos, ballenas, venados, serpientes y liebres. Los colores que más encontramos en estas pinturas son el negro, rojo y amarillo. Es posible encontrar pinturas rupestres en La Paz, Todos Santos, Loreto, Santa Rosalía y Mulegé, generalmente se encuentran en localidades remotas por lo que se recomiendan visitas guiadas.
