Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Mexico

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

The average price for a private 4 hour Mexico fishing trip is $441, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $682 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Valeria I, Cpt. Brother's Boat, and Burton lll Sport Fishing 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, inshore fishing, and nearshore 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.

Definitely book with the Keen M team! We came in September and chose to fish during the off season which was a risk. We did not have a lot of consistent bites but had some great catches

Check seasons on what kind of fish you want to catch and plan accordingly. Even reach out to the captain before and see what the options are.

From what we heard, mahi season is almost over. We were lucky enough to have an amazing captain and get on more mahi than we could handle. For what could have been a bust on mahi, our captain and mate killed it!!! So my opinion is skewed, but I'd rate it a five if they told me our trip was daily.

Make sure you let your captain know what species you would like to target. You can almost always experience some success if you're willing to be flexible with what you target.

Late August is very warm/hot at Rocky Point (118 degrees on the day we went).Fishing was excellent but would probably be more enjoyable during cooler temperatures.

What a fishing trip indeed! We got into some nice Mahai Mahi! Once we had had our fill of Mahi Mahi, we went back to trying to get a Marlin. We were fortunate enough to hook up with a nice Marlin. The fight was good and the crew amazing. The Captain was skillful making sure the boat and the fisherman were working together to land the fish. What a great trip!

Such a fun trip. Chose the 8 hour trip and and had no preferences. Ended up catching 3 barracuda’s within the first hour and then after that. We did some Bottom fishing and We’re catching them as fast as we could send out line in. Great crew and did everything they could to help us catch lots of Fish.

This was such an amazing experience. These guys are awesome and the real deal. They know what they are doing! Great communication skills from booking to any side questions. They took care of everything A-Z. They are such good people and make sure they squeeze fishing time out of the whole trip time. They cleaned the fish, cooked the best ceviche I’ve ever had !! Definitely going back would rate 10 stars if I could. Thank you guys.

We had a great full day trip, so we book another day hoping for a marlin and that what we got. The captain and crew are everything that you would want in a charter. Wish we had more time for another day. We will definitely be back and we will be booking with the Black Marlin, Captain Manuel and his crew. They certainly know Cabo and its waters. Two days in a row with the only flags in the marina! Awesome. Thanks again for two great days fishing Cabo. We will be back.

Eduardo is awesome. He brings such a fun friendly vibe to the day. He is so knowledgeable about the reefs and tries hard to get you on the spot and keep you there. We loaded the boat with triggers and sea bass. He even let us bring our dog. We had a wonderful time and I think he’s the best value for money in the whole area. 20 out of 10 recommend. Absolutely go with him, it’s perfect ponga fishing and he does it right!!
