Awards and Movies are a great recognition and we are thankful for it, but what makes our Cabo fishing charter legacy so special and amazing is our professional captain who has years of experience in fishing charters.

WHAT MAKES A GREAT, (not a good), A GREAT FISHERMAN?

It has to be in your heart and soul. You got to love it! It almost has to be something that you just eat, sleep and think about it all the time!

ABOUT

Ernie grew up loving all wildlife, especially marine life. He caught his first wild fish (a Marlin) at the tender age of six and would often arrive late to school after convincing his father to let him go fishing with daddy.

By the time he was nine years old, he was helping his dad catch small fish hanging around boat traders learning all secret fishing tricks. He always had a magical sixth sense when it came to wildlife and he spends his life expanding that skill.

Originally from Cabo, in 1991 Ernie took over managing the successful charter fishing business. After Ernie’s parents retired in 1992 Ernie worked tirelessly to improve and expand his family business.

Now his son and first mate Ernie Jr., the 4th “Ernie” of the Cossio generation, is bringing new online tools into the business. Senior Ernie believes his sportfishing work will go on, and his son will make sure it does.

We’ll fish this tournament the way we have the last 10,” says Ernie. “Two heads are better than one. I check certain areas and my son Ernie checks certain areas.”

MOVIE FACTS

“Aside from their similar gruff appearances, Cossio doesn’t share many similarities with Dennis Quaid’s character, who is a washed-up fisherman.

For one, we found no evidence that Cossio had ever previously cheated to win the tournament. Also, Capt. Ernie Cossio’s vessel, nicknamed Mucho Bueno, -a 36-foot 1998 Luhrs Convertible skippered by Ernie Cossio-, is a much nicer and far more capable boat than the rundown vessel that Wade Malloy (Dennis Quaid) captains in the film, which is fittingly nicknamed Knot Enough.

Making Wade a down-on-his-luck captain of a barely capable boat might make for a better underdog story, but it’s not in line with reality.”
