Big Fish Tale in Cabo

Stolen Fish
Dr Pescado

Fishermen aboard the Dr. Pescado II sailing out of Cabo San Lucas have a unique tale of one that got away, right about the time when rival fisherman picked it up and hauled it off. A video of their impressive catch of the massive but extremely rare Luvarus Imperialis proves their catch, but entrusting the catch to their fellow fisherman aboard the Marina II proved to be a mistake when they claimed the catch and ate it!

A video taken in Cabo San Lucas by fishermen aboard the Dr. Pescado II fishing boat on November 1st is undeniable proof that another boat not only stole a rare fish from them, but also lied about it and posed for pictures with their amazing catch before cutting it up and eating it.

It had been more than 20 years since anyone had seen the impressively huge species of fish known as louvar or Luvarus Imperialis, so when the fishermen aboard the Pescado II saw it what would later be identified as a louvar circling on top of the water less than four miles from the Lighthouse off Cabo they were eager to catch the massive fish.
