One of the more common and popular questions we get asked by our clients is “What’s the difference between a marlin and a sailfish? First of all, both are apart of the billfish family – which is characterized by the long bill and large sleek athletic body that allows them both to obtain surprising speeds in the water. However, the biggest defining characteristic between the two fish is the large signature dorsal fin of the sailfish.
Never less, when catching either one of these beautiful pelagic fish while on a Cabo fishing trip, it may not be initially apparent which type of fish it is – as both fish provide amazing acrobatic leaps out of the water and both are amazingly fast. One thing is true and the same for both of these species – “catch and release” is a common practice in Cabo San Lucas for each of these billfish, to help protect and insure the continued success of these prized game fish.
