Besides blue marlin and black marlin, the Sea of Cortez near Baja’s East Cape is a spring spawning ground for striped marlin. These magnificent gamefish thrive all year in these waters. Although smaller in size when reaching adult size than the blues and blacks (striped marlin grow to 200 pounds here, while blue and black marlin approach 1000 pounds), the stripers are renowned as the hardest-fighting marlin species, pound-for-pound.
