La Paz Fishing

With its prolonged Billfish seasons and ample opportunities for an offshore Grand Slam any day of the year, the prolific Sea of Cortez rarely disappoints, and La Paz is no different. Once a well-kept secret among international anglers, this coastal community has blossomed into a prime sportfishing destination the last couple of decades, luring fishermen worldwide to test some of the best Mexican hotspots firsthand. And although these days it is easily on par with Cabo San Lucas and Ascension Bay when it comes to its piscatorial potential, La Paz ('The Peace') is still to gain traction as a busy, overcrowded fishing haven - so be sure to enjoy the serenity while it lasts!
