California Norte

If you’re looking to spice up your holiday with a spot of fishing, then California Norte has just the tonic for you. Across the Ensenada Bay to the depths of the Pacific, you’ll have the chance to discover some productive waters, going after monster fish. From delicious Lingcod to monster Tuna, all your angling dreams will come true, as you make the most of your time in northern Mexico.

Who better to show you these waters than a local, experienced guide? Captain Chirac Arias fished recreationally for decades before seeing the chance to make a living out of his hobby. He’s been running charters since 2003 and knows all the best fishing spots. He promises to do everything he can to get you reeling in the fish of your dreams and filling the boat.

Up to 7 guests are welcome aboard the 33’ Luhrs walkaround boat. Strong and sturdy, she’ll ensure a smooth ride to even the remotest corners of the ocean. Make yourself at home on the spacious deck or in the comfortable cabin that comes fitted with 6 bunks and a private toilet. Bring your own drinks and snacks aboard and make the most of a day on the water!

When it comes to the fishing, you’ll have everything you need for a productive day out. Using the latest rods and reels, along with plenty of lures and maybe even bait, you’ll go after some of the ocean’s most prized creatures. Bottom fish the bay and target delicious Lingcod, Snappers, and Yellowtails, or head offshore to fight big game fish. It doesn’t get much better than battling it it out with a Tuna, so get ready for the fishing trip of a lifetime.

Head back to shore with a boatful of fish and get ready to enjoy the fruits of your labor. The crew can even clean your catch for a nominal fee, so you can go eat right away. Let the memories of a productive day out linger long into the night and beyond, as you devour your catch in a beachside restaurant. Come aboard California Norte and experience a range of fishing like nowhere else!

By chance I become a fisherman, since my grandparents and father were already engaged in sport fishing. My career is between 15 years of experience I have traveled for more than 5 years in a long-range boat from Mexico. What I like is that it is not easy to do, it is needed or depends on various factors when doing it, so it is unique and occasional that it cannot be said that there are two equal days of fishing.
