Mexico (Baja California Sur), East Cape
Baja's East Cape doesn't offer sails in numbers like some Central American hotspots; however, it's close and easy, and generally has far better odds for big sails than most people realize plus, of course, outstanding mixedbag fishing.
Why You Should Go: An affordable option to try for triple-digit sails, commonly 60 to 120 pounds, in waters very often calm. A long season runs most of spring through midautumn. Super slams are possible with black, striped and blue marlin common here. Travel costs are reasonable, and fishing packages at resorts can be excellent.
But... Not a spot to rack up high numbers. Charters often run 10 to 30 miles out to fish.
