Janitza Sport Fishing

Explore Mexico’s Pacific coast aboard Janitza Sport Fishing! This charter heads out from Zihuatanejo, a resort city known just as well for its beaches as for its epic fishing. Trophy catches reside closer to shore than usual, and Captain Edgar Saul Alonzo Ruiz is here to take you after them.

Board his 25’ Imemsa saltwater fishing boat. She can comfortably accommodate up to 7 anglers, with 2 able to fish at the same time. Hook the big ones with live bait kept fresh in the livewell and strap into the fighting chair when the time comes to seal the deal! The T-top keeps you out of the sun and plenty of seating keeps everyone comfortable.

One of the best things about fishing in Zihuatanejo is incredible sportfishing close to shore. You’ll only need to head between 5 and 20 miles to start hooking big fish! The most common catch in this radius is majestic Pacific Sailfish. There’s monster Blue Marlin too, averaging between 200 and 500 pounds in size during their prime season!

Shimano, Daiwa, and Penn gear for you to troll and spin with awaits on board. Snorkeling equipment for all 7 guests is also provided on the snorkeling trip. All you’ll want to bring are enough drinks and snacks to keep you going and layer on the sunscreen!

Land the catch of a lifetime with Janitza Sport Fishing!
