The History of Picante Sportfishing
In 1994 during the first day of the Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin Tournament “Team Picante,” on their 40′ Sportfisher named “Picante,” boated a record 993 lb. Pacific Blue Marlin winning a cash prize of $300,000.00 and a brand new 35′ CABO Yacht.
The new CABO Yacht was offered to any team that weighed a fish more than 750 lbs. That year Picante became associated with Cabo Yachts and formed “Picante Sportfishing and Yacht Sales” based in Cabo San Lucas. To this day Picante holds the record for the largest Marlin caught is the Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin Tournament, and a Sportfishing Legend was born.
22 years later Picante Sportfishing operates the premier sportfishing fleet in Cabo San Lucas with 14 Cabo Yachts in the fleet. At no other location in the world can a client fish these outstanding yachts with the variety of models offered by Picante Sportfishing.
