fish4.JPG (11746 bytes)The Sea of Cortez is one of the most abundant fishing areas in the world. Just few of the more popular Baja sportfish are Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Sailfish, Yellow Tail, Wahoo, Dorado, Cabrilla, Groupers, Jack Cravelle, Cabrilla, Yellow FinTuna, Rosterfish, and Sierra.

Popular fishing destinations include Cabo San Lucas, Todos Santos, and La Paz. But you can avoid the high prices and crowds - and start you day where the action is. Stay in La Ventana and Isla de Cerralvo is right in your front yard.

Many hotels cater to fishermen and can help you arrange your fishing vacation - including setting you up with top guides and boats. Drop a line to Baja Joe's or Palapas Ventana and get your adventure rolling.

fish4.JPG (8500 bytes)The best months in Baja for the majority of the most popular sport fish are April thru November (see chart below). But great fishing can be had any time of year.

For up to the minute reports, check out Palapa Ventana's Fishing Reports.

Most fishing is done aboard Mexican owned Panga's and Super Panga's.

Several of the Panga captains cater to Fly Fishermen and their unique boat handling needs. Looking for a guided Fly Fishing trip? Check out Gary Bulla's expeditions.

Isla Cerralvo boast incredible Spearfishing as well. Many of the big fish are available for the adventurous free diver - including huge Yellow Tail and Wahoo!

Although the Ponga's are usually the preferred method of fishing, plenty of action can also be had from the shore, from a kayak, or in a zodiac.

We have seen a near record Roster Fish caught on a fly just off the beach.

Fishing Licenses are required in Mexico, even if you are fishing on boat operated by a local business. You can purchase your Mexican Fishing License quickly and securely online at www2.ebajacalifornia.gob.mx/Pesca/ . After entering your info and paying with a credit card, you print out your receipt and new Mexican Fishing License. Print out two copies. Put one in a ziploc bag to take with you on the boat, and leave the other copy with your passport and other documents as a backup.
