Cabo San Lucas Fishing BoatSan Antonio angler Joe Estrada tells a story about his catch of a lifetime — the big one that got away — only he didn’t really catch it and it didn’t really get away.

Estrada’s story launches on All Saint’s Day, the morning after Halloween, from the marina in Cabo San Lucas on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, Mexico.

“Me and my buddies were on vacation, fishing five days in a row,” said Estrada, owner of Estrada’s Carglass?. His fishing buddies were Greg Graham, a county probation officer, and Wayne Tauer, owner of the BoatShop?. “This was our fourth day. We were catching dorado (mahi-mahi) and tuna.”

This fourth morning was like the first three.

Their boat made it across the bay, around the famous Cabo Arch and about a mile out into the deep blue Pacific Ocean.
