FAQs about Fishing Charters in Mexico

The average price for a private 4 hour Mexico fishing trip is $417, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $671 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

According to customer reviews, Valeria I, Alfonso Tours, and Cpt. Brother's Boat are some of the most popular fishing charters in Mexico. Full list of top fishing charters in Mexico.

Valeria I, Alfonso Tours, and Cpt. Brother's Boat all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Mexico.

The most popular fish species you can target are Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Blue Marlin, and Sailfish. Top fishing techniques include trolling, bottom fishing, and deep sea fishing. Offshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Mexico fishing charters tick all the boxes on most anglers’ sportfishing bucket lists. From its winding mountain rivers, across the vast lakes, to its two oceans and multiple seas – you won’t know where to look when choosing where to go! This country’s angling opportunities are so vast, that there’s something for everyone. 
 
We’ll start with the bluewater bite. The Pacific’s bays offer up prime Calico, Corvina, Seabass, Jack, Snook, and Roosterfish action. Head to the Caribbean and Gulf side, and it’ll be Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon. Wherever you are, the reefs will offer up Groupers and Snappers, with pelagic monsters such as Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, and Striped, Blue, Black, and White Marlin on offer around the country!
 
When it comes to freshwater fishing, Largemouth Bass is the name of the game in most places. However, Catfish, Carp, and even exotic creatures like Rainbow Bass, and Tilapia are on offer in some spots. Your best bet for finding a freshwater charter is on the lakes, with Mexican fishing guides few and far between on the rivers.
 
With so many fishing grounds, it’s no surprise that Mexico fishing charters offer a range of options. In some places, such as the Sea of Cortez or Riviera Maya, the big game action takes place just a few miles from shore. That means that a trip as little as four hours could land you a trophy! However, usually, you’ll see shorter trips tailored to families and beginners, and trips between 6–12 hours for the more experienced.

 

Rules & Regulations

If you’re fishing from a boat in Mexico, then you’ll need a license. These are often covered by your charter, but not always, so it’s worth checking before you go. Each angler can keep a maximum of five fish in freshwater, and ten in saltwater. However, you can only have five of each species, and one Billfish counts as half your daily limit.

January

Striped Marlin, Hammerhead Sharks, and Wahoo patrol the deep waters around Cabo. Puerto Vallarta is great for Black Marlin and Sailfish. Inshore, this is a perfect time for Snook fishing in Riviera Maya.

February

Striped Marlin and Sharks bite hard in Cabo San Lucas. Jack Crevalle join the Snook on Riviera Maya’s flats. You can catch the last of the winter Sailfish and Black Marlin bite in Puerto Vallarta.

March

March brings tasty Yellowtail to Cabo, just as Snapper and Grouper show up on the reefs. The first of the Marlin show up in Playa Del Carmen and Cozumel, just as the Billfish leave Banderas Bay.

April

Striped Marlin show no signs of leaving Baja California, and Puerto Vallarta’s reefs are full of fish. In the Caribbean, Permit, Tarpon, Snook, and Jack Crevalle are all around in big numbers.

May

Hundreds of boats swarm the island of Cozumel for the Rodeo de Lanchas Mexicanas (Mexican Boat Rodeo). Meanwhile, fly anglers head to Tulum for the Ascension Bay Permit Tournament.

June

Snook, Roosterfish, Sierra Mackerel, and Jack Crevalle offer epic shore fishing in Cabo. On the other side of the country, Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, and Mahi Mahi will put your skills to the test in Cancun.

July

July offers the best Tarpon fishing Mexico sees all year long in Cozumel’s shallow flats. It’s not just Tarpon, either. Bonefish, Permit, Snook, and Jacks are all waiting – if you can take the heat!

August

Blue Marlin explode onto the scene in the Pacific, just as the Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore kicks off Cabo’s tournament season. All your inshore favorites are still in town in Riviera Maya.

September

Across the country, locals celebrate Diez y Seis, Mexico’s Independence Day. Crowds gather at midnight on the 15th to utter the grito (shout) that started the revolution. Expect fireworks, music, and dancing.

October

There’s only one event on everyone’s mind: the Bisbee’s Black & Blue. With millions of dollars in prizes and all the biggest names in sportfishing, this is unlike any other tournament on the planet.

November

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is Mexico’s most iconic festival. Watch costumed crowds parade through the streets after an awesome day offshore in Cabo or fishing the reefs in Riviera Maya.

December

Fancy something a little different this Christmas? How about beaches and fresh Tuna steaks? December has the best Tuna fishing Mexico sees all year, with Yellowfin and Albacore across the Pacific Coast.

Don’t expect too much, sometimes you are lucky and sometime your not. This is rainy season and fishing is more difficult, but if you happen to get the right crew you will be successful.

I would definitely recommend Dramamine or some type of motion sickness medicine. People getting seasick really can ruin a trip fishing.

Our crew said that May is the ideal month to fish although you can catch interesting fish year round. We were on the tail end of the best fishing season when we went in late June.

If you're not a seasoned fisherman, be prepared with Dramamine. The earlier in the day, the better they bite!

We really enjoyed fishing but the sea was a bit rough. Cabo in May-June is changing seasons so the winds are very present. This made the sea a bit rough and for someone who gets motion sick it was a bit much. Just keep that in mind and go fishing in the morning and not in the afternoon if your fishing during these months.

The fishing was a little slow at times, but the Spanish Mackerel were biting big in the morning. Afternoon slowed down a bit. Were not able to link up any Mahi or Marlin, but did grab a Rooster to end the day!

Hire a boat because no matter how many fish you catch it's an enjoyable and fun adventure being on the water in Mexico. I also think it's nice to go with a small group so there's plenty of action for everyone and the personal attention is worth it.

This was a great experience. Manuel and his crew are amazing and they worked hard to help us catch a large fish. We were hoping for a Marlin and was surprised and so excited to have caught a Sailfish! One thing I was super impressed with was how they kept the deck very clean the whole time. I did not expect this at all and was impressed with the level of care they had for their equipment and customers. Next time we decide to go fishing in Cabo I will 100% rebook with him.

We have done several boats out of Cabo over the years and this will be our go to out of Cabo from now on. Yoyo and his crew have a wide comfortable boat well stocked for fishing. You will be well taken care of they will get you on fish. Wonderful with spotting and casting for Marlin. We even doubled on Marlin which is very exciting for the whole boat. If you want Marlin and Dorado this is the way to do it. Thanks again Yoyo.

We love to fish and go on guided trips and this has got to be one of the best crew there are! Hard working and so knowledgeable! Within the first hour both of us had mahi-mahi on at the same time! Within four hour we were limited and they kept going to let us catch and release for the rest of our time! Thank you Jose and Joel for making it a wonderful experience!

Great company. Great crew. They knew where to go and what to look for. Caught four (one got away) large Marlin that gave us a work out and at least half dozen Mahi (Dorado). Spotted many Sting rays, sea turtles, sea lions. It was the best 8 hrs on the water fishing. Exciting is an understatement. Thank you thank you! High recommend! It makes all the difference with a crew that knows their fishing.

We went on an 8 hour fishing trip and loved the whole thing. We caught some big Mahi Mahi and then they took us to a restaurant that you can only get to by boat. They cooked our fish multiple different ways!! I would definitely recommend Jorge (our captain) and Alexis the first mate for any fishing trip!! Both were great and made sure we were always doing good!

We had that we had a blast with Captain Christobal is an understatement. We caught over 40 pounds of fish (5 gallon freezer bags of fillets). The kids loved it and he took care of everything right down to cold drinks and tasty burritos. I would recommend Del-Mar Charters to absolutely everyone, a family friendly trip, fishing with the guys, or fishing for sport you can’t go wrong. And don’t forget to ask for Captain Cristobal!!!! You won’t be disappointed.
