We love Bernie and the other crew members! Writing this review for my husband and his friends.

We went to Cabo a couple of weeks ago and they went out fishing twice. Caught 7 Dorados (delicious!) and 2 Marlins!

This group REALLY knows their stuff and how to provide an excellent fishing trip. This was the highlight of our trip!

Props to the captain and deckhand for taking my family out fishing and hooking us up with our first striped marlin. We had some huge waves that day, but the guys kept their eyes to the sea to spot as many fish as they could. A dorado shook the hook, as did another marlin, but that's the name of the game. Our girls loved the sea lions that jumped on the boat's platform. Thanks again for everything and can't wait to return!

They seemed like they tried their best but they took us to the sea of Cortez where no one else was fishing and we only caught two fish. Obviously catching any fish is good news and a win but everyone caught more fish on the other sportfishers. They didn’t talk much and were no fun. We requested to go ahi fishing but they said no and it was too windy yet many others went out for ahi. The tackle and boat were amazing. Real luxury but If you want to catch fish maybe choose another charter.

Captain Bernie and Mate Beto are great and put us right on the Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo and Marlin! They are a catch and release (Marlin) operation. My friends are the anglers, and said it was one of the best trips ever, with the amount of action. The captain was nice enough to slow down at "Lands End" so I could take pictures and pointed out the seals on the rocks. The most entertaining part is when back in dock, one of us DROPPED HIS Wahoo overboard, trying to poise for a picture...the rescue mission pursued. Communication was a bit difficult to confirm our 2nd day, if the marine was open, due to a hurricane north of Cabo, they don't answer or respond to the toll free #.

Two trips to Cabo and four trips on the Bad Medicine!! We went on two trips in 2013 and had so much success with Dorado & marlin it was a no brainer to go with Bernie & Alberto again!
First trip this past week got us right on the tuna for a total of 7 plus a 130 pound striped marlin that was tagged & released! Second trip of the week was 7 more tuna including a 40 pound guy, plus 1 striped & 1 blue marlin, both tagged and released!!! Captain Bernie & Alberto are the best team in Cabo, on one of the fastest, most well kept boats at the marina. If you are going to Cabo, do the all day trip - it's so worth it and book early with them to avoid disappointment!!!

Our skipper Bernie, and his first mate, Beto, were on point! They took us out on the water, for a full day of fishing. We got to the fishing grounds rapidly, hooked-but didn't land a Wahoo and a Shark (user error..not theirs :). Continued fishing for Marlin, and they gave every effort to help us land a big one, to no evale. In order to get us some fish, they then took us closer to the shore, and we caught 4 red snapper.
What a great experience! There's no better captain or first mate on the water. Will be booking with Bad Medicine again. Thank you for a spectacular day!

The boat is immaculate and the equipment is superb. The crew quite obviously are very professional and work very hard for the best fishing experience.
