VIDEO: With no boat traffic, game fish swarm marina in Mexico. Fisherman’s dream.

CABO SAN LUCAS, MEXICO – Before COVID-19 brought tourism to a halt, the Cabo San Lucas marina was too busy with boating activity to attract larger game fish. Now though, things are different – boat traffic is so light that large game fish are now swarming into the marina.

The accompanying footage, captured Saturday by Mario Banaga of Pisces Sportfishing, shows a school of frenzied jack crevalle chasing bait fish in a corner of the marina.

Besides jack crevalle, which are prized for their fight on light tackle, dorado (mahi-mahi) have been seen gathering beneath idle sportfishing boats. “We’re still not allowed out fishing… so the fish have decided to come to us!” Pisces exclaimed on Facebook.

FILE PHOTO: Jack Crevalle have been swarming into the marina along with mahi-mahi since the COVID-19 lockdown severely limited the amount of activity that once used to scare them away.
