Where is it?
Land elevation and sea depth are color-coded. The key is at the bottom of the map. In addition, several sea depths have been represented with contour lines. In feet, these are 100, 300, 600, 1000, 3000, 6000, and 10000. The "100 fathom curve" (600 feet) is shown in purple. The 100 fathom and 500 fathom (3000 foot) lines are often associated with gamefish.
Rather than clutter the map up with a lot of descriptive text, we've set it up to be interactive. Various relevant regions have been highlighted, and you may click on them to open a window, which may give information such as the name of the area, approximate GPS coordinates, species of fish found there, fishing tactics, etc. Offshore fishing areas are outlined in green, while landmarks associated with inshore regions are shown as green dots or lines. Los Barriles, the Los Cabos International Airport, San José del Cabo, and Cabo San Lucas are also shown as yellow dots to give some points of reference. All of these are clickable - your mouse pointer should turn into a hand when you pass over a clickable region.
As with most things related to fishing, there are no hard and fast rules about where the fish will be. Just because you fish one of the spots on this map doesn't guarantee you will catch fish, and not fishing these areas doesn't mean you won't catch fish. However, these are known "hot spots", and are generally associated with some interesting underwater geography, such as canyons, dropoffs, or high spots. Note also that many fish (especially pelagic species) are seasonal, so don't expect to find marlin at the marlin spot if it isn't marlin season.
