So glad to have found El Budster online through Fishing booker! This was the best fishing trip ever for us in Cabo! We caught an 8 ft striped marlin and another smaller marlin that we released. We also caught 3 dorados (mahi-mahi). Great crew! We bought the all inclusive 5 hour package. Nice size 28 ft boat for 3 people. They had water bottles for us too! We will definitely book with El Budster next time!

Went with 3 friends (left our wives at home as we here to fish not vacation except the eating and drinking). none of us had deep sea fished. We booked 3 days in October to make sure to give us a great adventure. El Budster over delivered on our expectations. You need to put in the time. We found things were hot and cold. When Francisco and then Luis found honey holes OMG amazing and be ready. We needed 4 guys to keep up. We caught 10 tuna (brought 50 pounds home plus ate some fresh that night) 17 Dorado and 2 marlin. Found out it’s important to communicate to the captain your expectations - quantity or a trophy, what kind etc. We made a decision after tuna and dorado catch that we really wanted a marlin. Luis and Omar delivered. As new to the sport as we were the guys really work with you to try and bring in everything that bites. A bonus for us was Bisbee was on at the same time and gave us a glimpse of how the pros do it. I think the winner was 440 pound marlin and $2.6M prize. Wow. Get your crew together and do this. El Budster A very affordable and fun get away.

1. We’re not professional anglers
2. Omar and Francisco were able to entertain our teenage boys —and Mike was always available to answer my questions
3. We caught a baby marlin, a HUGE marlin (that my 11 year old tried to reel in but lost him), and my husband lost a Bonita fish to a GYNORMOUS SEA LION—not
To mention the other bites on our lures that we’re lost.
4. Within 2 hours, my boys and husband were able to sport fish in the most exhilirating experience.
5. For a mother who didnt want to participate, I’m so grateful for sharing this journey with my husband and boys. El Budster/Mike/Salvador——Thank you for the most amazing memories for our family! We had no idea what to anticipate—but regardless of your experience, El Budster will not fail you. Their crew, the boat, their equipment —BEYOND EXCELLENT. And the way they can read the ocean—above and beyond RARE.

I got to de o sea fish for the first time!!! The El Budster crew, Ishy and Luis, we're determined to make it a success...so encouraging, so supportive...I learned so much...caught some real fighters and was privileged to hook a Marlin, see it jump, taught how to bring them in in a supportive way. What a super relaxing and yet super exciting adventure!!! You guys are the best!!! Would recommend this great group of guys to everyone!!!...you too Mike! 😊

Spent a fantastic day on the El Budster with friends. Louis and Ishy were a ton of fun, friendly, as well as fish-finding experts! This crew knows how to do it! If you're looking for a great time on a fantastic boat with an expert crew, this is the place for you!!

I came to Cabo with my brother for a week and anticipated going out with El Budster based on a co-worker’s recommendation. I talked to a guy next door to them on the left named Jorge, who “tried to get ahold of them” but set me up with Simpson boat instead. Long story short, we had no luck. I decided to book the next day with Endy and Ishmael through Mexican Mike at the El Budster office, based on reviews I knew this would be a good choice to turn my trip around.

We left on time. We left prepared. We left with all (professional) equipment clean, and ready to go. We were one of the first boats out, got to watch the sun rise as we headed ~18 miles off shore to where Marlin had been caught recently.

Endy and Ishmael worked hard to get something to bite. We swapped from bait to bait, tried strings of squid, listened to the others on the radio, and for 6 hours we waited. I had almost thrown in the towl, when we got a snag from a marlin!

The crew were super professional and helped me with the instructions for fighting the marlin, after a little bit we got him boat-side, and Ishmael hoisted the giant into the boat, we got pictures, video, the works. And when all said and done, gave him another chance at life in the big blue.

This was a redemption trip for me, and one I will NEVER forget. I would always recommend these guys. Go with what you know will be a crew that will try for you. These guys are the best. I will always book them first from now on.

Thanks guys!

Update 2022

As mentioned above, I would come back, and we did. This time my brother Brian and friend Robbie worked together for 2+ hours to reel in one of the biggest Stripped Marlins I’ve seen. Once again a stellar experience. Couldn’t be happier with them.

I have fished several times with Salvador's Sportfishing on the El Budster and Budster Pride. The boats and angling gear are well kept and the captains and mates are absolutely top notch! This is the company to book with for fishing in Cabo San Lucas. I won't fish with anyone else.

First time in Cabo and had a day I’ll never forget. I had heard Cabo is a great place to go fishing and i didn’t hear wrong.
Went out on the El Budster first thing in the morning. It was a calm and beautiful day. Nice boat ride for a few hours but then the wind and waves kicked up, the whales started breaching just like on National Geographic, and i was glad to be on a boat this size and not a smaller one. Then BANG, the two of us had a double going. Two Marlins at the same time. Real bucket list stuff. Real strong fish, but the crewman stayed on top of both of us to make sure and thanks heavens the Captain worked the boat to our advantage. These guys know what they are doing and did it well. I’ll always be thankful they did such a great job to provide us with the thrills we had. I highly recommend this outfit for a great day on the water.

Back for the fifth year in a row to fish we my friends at Salvador's sport fishing aka El Budster sport fishing. There is no place in Cabo to get more bang for your buck than with these guys. Caught our marlin early and went for some dorado for dinner. With everyone happy we headed home after lunch for a good dinner with the girls. Great time every time.
