January

Ring in the new year with a fun fishing trip to Ensenada! January is a great month for hitting the reefs to bottom fish for Barracuda or staying in the bay to target Bonito and Kelp Bass.

February

Take your partner on a Valentine’s Day cruise in Todos Santos Bay. While you’re at it, troll a few lines and catch yourself some supper and enjoy a romantic dinner as the sun sets over the bay. 

March

Farewell winter and hello spring! March kicks off the sportfishing season with large numbers of Yellowtail coming closer to shore. You can also troll for Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, and Skipjack and Albacore Tuna!

April

Things really start to heat up offshore in April. Now is the time to pick a charter that will take you to the deep to target Mahi Mahi, Yellowtail, Skipjack, and the occasional Roosterfish.

May

The fishing continues to heat up offshore and more fish are thrown into the mix. Expect Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Yellowtail, and Tuna in the deep. Closer to shore, you’ll find Corbina, Perch, Seabass, and Calico Bass. 

June

Offshore fishing will reap lots of great catches in June. Head offshore and go Tuna fishing for Yellowfin and Bluefin or stay within the bay to target White Seabass and Corbina. Your options are endless!

July

July is prime time. Tuna fishing is at its peak, as well as Mahi Mahi and Roosterfish. Marlin and Sailfish join in on the fun as well, so pick an offshore charter to take you deep sea fishing and get ready for an adventure!

August

August is a great time to target Striped Marlin as they tend to show up closer to shore. Other key species will include Albacore, Skipjack, Yellowfin, and Bluefin Tuna, so you can catch 'em all.

September

Target Jack Crevalle in the shallows or head just a bit further and catch Corbina, Seabass, and Roosterfish. Bluewater fishing will see you going after Mahi Mahi, Striped and Blue Marlin, Sailfish, and Tuna.

October

There's no sign of the fishing letting up, with Tuna in abundance offshore Inshore and nearshore trips are great in October as well. Plan a family trip with the kids and catch Croakers, Barred Perch, Corbina, and Seabass.

November

Offshore season winds to a close, but the bay is brimming with delicious fish. You’ll have the chance to target Corbina, White Seabass, Kelp Bass, and Barracuda, and there's still some Yellowtail further out. 

December

Things may have cooled down offshore but you can still target Yellowtail and the occasional Mahi Mahi. The Barracuda bite is still hot, so hit the San Miguel Reef for a fun day of bottom fishing.

Parking and finding the boat was a little tricky, but they called us and gave us assistance. Caught lots of bonitos, nothing else, maybe just due to time of year. We also went in the afternoon, so not the best time. Fishing Captain was a little slow to respond to emails, but eventually was able to communicate with him and make the changes we needed. They had water and chips for snacks, so remember to bring your own cooler and beer :)
Very good

Amazing day on the water. Captain placed us on fish with mahi, yellow fin and Bonita being caught. Very friendly and was there to assist while fishing. A little fresh ceviche from tuna that was caught was perfection. Will be doing this trip again or a longer one.

The boat runs and rides well and is very roomy. We did a 5 hour half day out to an island and back. We had some live bait which worked well. We have 2 boys 8 and 6 and I don’t know who had more fun them or my wife. We were on a good bite nearby all day. We caught over 2 dozen rockfish, a nice ling cod, and some whitefish. I’ll certainly try these guys out again soon for a full day run to the kelp Pattie’s and maybe an overnight for blue fin.

From the moment we scheduled our trip the communication was amazing! Staff was all very friendly and helpful! We were a bit nervous because we self booked this excursion as the cruise fishing excursions were all booked but we could not have asked for a better day. Thank you!

A cool hard working 12 year old working the boat. The battery on the boat is apparently fickle so the boat was never turned off. Even when in anchor still on. But, not every captain is cool with folks diving off the boat. They accommodated that and got our kids tons of rock fishing exposure. I deeply appreciated their flexibility.

Chirac and his crew were great. The boat had lots of room for the 5 of us that joined. We caught a total of 31 fish, tons of barracuda and some red snappers. Chirac knew exactly where to go to catch these fish. Great experience overall and his crew was super friendly and helpful. Next time we will be doing a 12 hour trip to go deeper and hopefully get some tuna!

This is our second time with captain Jerk and even though a few of the guys got motion sickness, the captain took us to a great spot where the majority of us caught a fish. This time I caught the biggest fish. I definitely recommend this experience!!

Great boat, great crew! Did a full-day in-shore trip in July 2022. The captain and crew took us out early and found a hot spot for good sized rock fish and other species. Super friendly crew! We'll be back soon for another day of fishing in Ensenada.

Grey trip. Excellent deck hand made sure we caught fish had fun. Action was a little slow but we still left with 12 fish. The deck hand made sashimi with a couple of our fish and it was outrageous good. 10/10 would recommend.

We had so much fun with these guys. Caught a bunch of fish, they cleaned it, and recommended some places that will cook it for you. JB also made amazing sashimi for us. We had the best time and actually extended an hour. Go with this company!

Crew gave us options for type of fishing - halibut, trolling or bottom fishing. Due to conditions (cloudy/foggy, windy, cool - in June!) they suggested bottom fishing. We set up for drifts over rocks and some were more productive than others. We caught reds, bass and others enough for sashimi and fish tacos for days! Entertaining and fun despite the conditions. Highly recommended!

Good time guide didn’t speak English. We caught mostly rock fish but that’s fishing. Guide used a translation app so we could communicate.

Overall great experience. Communication was great from the day we booked it till we got on the boat. All questions were answered ASAP by captain Chirac. Got us a nice bluefin and a yellowtail. Nice conditions, good crew, and some cold beers. Couldn’t ask for a better time
