Fishing in La Paz

If you’re looking for an authentic Baja California adventure, away from the crowds, then a La Paz fishing charter is just what you need. The capital city of BCS is a quiet town, yet it offers some of the best fishing in Mexico. It’s retained a charm that some say has been lost in bigger resort towns. Come and enjoy a real taste of Mexico, and discover some incredible angling opportunities.
 
The first place to look when fishing in La Paz is the city’s synonymous bay. These mangrove-lined waters are home to Triggerfish, Jacks, Snappers, Groupers, and even Roosterfish. Head a little further out and you can find even bigger creatures, with the real prizes coming out in the heart of the Sea of Cortez.
 
This unusually warm body of water attracts some of the world’s most sought-after fish. Get your hands on delicious Yellowfin Tuna, Yellowtail Amberjack, and Mahi Mahi, or get ready to land yourself a trophy. You’ll find three kinds of Marlin here, along with Sailfish, Swordfish, and Wahoo, to keep even the most professional angler busy. 
 
With such a range of fishing, it’s no surprise that La Paz fishing charters have something for everyone. Beginners and families can get out onto the bay over the course of a couple of hours or a little longer. Meanwhile, offshore adventures can last anywhere from a full day to a few nights on the water! Whatever you choose, you’re in for an unforgettable experience. 

 

Rules & Regulations

Every angler in La Paz will need a valid Mexican sportfishing license. Some captains may provide this, but you can get one online or at the dock, if not. Guides in La Paz are proud of the area’s beauty and do whatever they can to make sure they’re fishing responsibly. That means that you’re sure to be fishing within the law. 

La Paz Fishing Seasons

January
Come to La Paz in January to go after Striped Marlin, because the bite in the winter months is better than almost anywhere else. Wahoo is also on a roll, as well as Mahi Mahi, Snapper, and Bonito.
February

The weather is mild and the fishing conditions are excellent for reeling in Amberjack, Roosterfish, and Snapper nearshore. Don't forget about Striped Marlin, though, who's still the main star offshore.

March
Spring is just around the corner, which means Roosterfish is plentiful. The Snapper bite is also good, and if you’re looking for a strong fighter, go after Amberjack and Striped Marlin further out.
April
Come to La Paz to enjoy the beautiful weather and first-class Striped Marlin season. In case you’re not a Billfish aficionado, you can still target monster Roosterfish, Bonito, and Sierra Mackerel closer to shore.
May

Blue and Striped Marlin are the ultimate catch in May, and Snapper, Grouper, and Roosterfish could easily find their way to your hook as well. This is also the best time to catch big Amberjack. 

June

Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Amberjack, and Sierra Mackerel are just some of the A-listers you can find around La Paz in June. If you’re on the lookout for giant Blue Marlin, this is your month.

July

Enjoy the Dorado Shoot Out mid-July and hook monster Mahi Mahi. Black Marlin love the warm waters, and you can see Sailfish, Wahoo, and plenty of other big game creatures in abundance.

August
This is one of the most productive months in La Paz – Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Snapper, Grouper, Mahi Mahi – all the offshore A-listers are there for the taking, along with even more inshore.
September

Come September, you'll get the chance to chase Blue Marlin and Sailfish and land your next Billfish trophy. The Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Yellowfin Tuna bites are also top notch, so you’re in for a memorable day.

October

Though the weather is cooling down, the bite remains red-hot. There’s a plethora of fish to choose from, so head out and hunt Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, Blue Marlin, and Wahoo, along with many smaller creatures.

November

Sailfish season is at its best, and Mahi Mahi and Yellowfin Tuna are just as active. The Wahoo bite is superb, and you can still find a decent number of Black, Blue, and Striped Marlin around.

December

Come to La Paz to get away from the cold and stay for the top-notch Tuna fishery. Striped Marlin don’t shy away from the right lure presentation either, and neither do Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, or Snapper.

If you are avid fishermen, bring your own gear. Being able to cast bait really made a difference for the big fish.

Check transactions. When booking the trip I've paid $128 upfront and was told it's %20 of the whole payment. But on the day of the trip I was asked to pay full price again.

Had a great trip with Freddie as captain. He was in charge at all times and got us on some nice fish. My daughter landed a 20 lb yellowtail (amberjack) any myself a 15 lb Dorado (Mahi mahi) Been eating fried, grilled and ceviche fish for 2 days now....especially delicious when caught yourself!

Second day in one week fishing this boat. Capitan Dago was great. He put us on all the dorados we could handle. He was very patient with my family and he’s very knowledgeable. I recommend this trip. Will do again.

Good day on the water! The captian found The Dorado within 2 hrs and we landed 3 in short order. It was just him and me fishing, and my only question would be why we had to buy 100s of live sardines.

First of two days booked on this boat. First time targeting the Dorado. Dago found the Dorados. Got tired of reeling them in! Epic day. Can’t wait to do it again.

Originally booked the half day trip to do some fishing and snorkeling, but they talked us into doing a longer run to get to a giant school of Mahi Mahi, which was totally worth it. Not huge ones, but there had to be thousands and you couldn’t keep them off your line. Also got in a little snorkeling. Not bad considering we brought a 6 month old baby. Great trip!

We did the full day trip. It was very exciting and nonstop action. Caught 10 El Dorado and 14 Mexican tuna. We did fishing and snorkeling. The captain cleaned and bagged all the fish for us. Was an excellent fishing trip and already looking to see when I can book with them again. This is far from my first salt water fishing trip but was on of the very best!
