According to customer reviews, Keen M International – “Andrea M”, Chili's Sportfishing Isla Mujeres, and Keen M Sport Fishing - Lilly M are some of the most popular fishing charters in Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo. Full list of top fishing charters in Isla Mujeres.

Keen M International – “Andrea M”, Chili's Sportfishing Isla Mujeres, and Keen M Sport Fishing - Lilly M all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Isla Mujeres.

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

With beautiful sun-drenched beaches and a tranquil atmosphere, Isla Mujeres is the Yucatan Peninsula’s own little slice of paradise. It’s also a real haven for water-lovers, including snorkelers, divers, and, of course, anglers! An Isla Mujeres fishing adventure is something that shouldn’t be missed. It’s surrounded by reefs brimming with tasty bottom fish, provides access to the prolific Yucatan Channel, and even offers up some flats fishing action.
 
Firstly, there’s the majestic Mesoamerican Reef. Just and a short journey out onto the water will see you encountering Grouper, Snapper, Hogfish, Triggerfish, Amberjack, and Barracuda. More into deep sea fishing action? Head out around 20–30 miles offshore, and you’ll reach the Yucatan Channel – AKA the playground of big game fish. Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna...all the Gulf of Mexico’s major players pass through these waters!
 
Isla Mujeres’ inshore action is nothing short of spectacular, either. You can step out of your hotel and generally be battling Bonefish within minutes, there are so many productive flats fisheries here. But ask any local angler, and they’ll usually recommend the Isla Blanca flats. Why? Fewer anglers visit these waters, and you’ll come across Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit, and Snook, otherwise known as an “Inshore Super Grand Slam,” as well as Jacks and Barracuda.
 
Local charter captains provide a whole variety of fishing trips, running anywhere from four to over nine hours. Although it’s possible to explore the flats, reef, or offshore waters on a shorter trip, most locals recommend opting for a longer adventure. Newbies and families can mix up fishing with some swimming or snorkeling, and hardcore anglers can try for that trophy catch!
 

 

Rules & Regulations

You’ll need a valid Mexico fishing license in order to explore Isla Mujeres’ waters. The good news is, if you’re casting off alongside a local charter captain, this will be covered for you.

January

January is a great time to fish the reefs, with monster Grouper and Snapper waiting below the waters. Hit the flats, and you could spend hour after hour battling super-sized Snook.

February

The Isla Mujeres Island Time Fishing Tournament offers epic hookups and fierce competition in February. Target Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and King Mackerel in this awesome offshore event.

March

If you're up for a road trip, the spring equinox at Chichen Itza is an unmissable event which has been celebrated for centuries. If not, you've got Sailfish, Wahoo, Bonefish, Snook, and plenty more right here!

April

Semana Santa is Mexico's most important holiday. The schools are out and all the locals are in the mood to celebrate. April also marks the anniversary of Cancun's discovery, so it's a very happy time in town.

May

The summer season is well on its way by May. Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit, and Snook are swarming the shallows. Offshore, you have Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna. Fish on!

June

The Billfish bite hits its peak in June, with huge monster Blue Marlin, White Marlin, and Sailfish. The flats are incredible, too, with every major inshore game fish swarming in along the beaches.

July

The Isla Mujeres Whale Shark Festival has fun for all the family as it honors these incredible creatures. This is also a great month to go snorkeling with whale sharks around the island!

August

August is when most Mexicans take their vacatian, so beaches and resorts may be busier than you expect. Escape the crowds, and you'll find some amazing fishing on the flats, though.

September

Mexicans love Independence Day just as much as Americans, it seems. September 15th is marked with music, dancing, and chants of "Viva Mexico!" all across the country.

October

The Isla Mujeres International Music Festival brings the island to life for a 12-day extravaganza of music and dancing, with top artists from around the world. It's one heck of a party!

November

Dia de los Muertos is probably Mexico's most famous festival. Expect elaborate costumes and impressive parades as locals celebrate their ancestors and mourn their loved ones.

December

If you're thinking of spending December on Isla Mujeres then we're very jealous. With warm seas, beautiful beaches, and all-night parties, this is the ultimate way to enjoy the holiday season!

A morning trip might have more success as it was slow in the afternoon. The owner told us it was a weird day even off shore so maybe it wouldn’t matter. We still caught fish so it was a successful trip.

Make sure you dress for the sun! Period no exceptions. Plan for the wind and sea. If expected high seas, then do not eat breakfast not drink any beer early in trip.

We went bottom fishing and it was a great first experience but we saw plenty of sailfish. Would like to give that a go next time.

What a great day to catch fish. Captain weighed the options of what would be best for us and went for it. It was nice that we drove straight to the fishing grounds and then started fishing. I know not all days are like this but Rogelio and crew had us reeling in fish after fish after fish. We kept what fish we planned to eat and give to those that have been good to us while we were here. Highly recommend any chance you have to go out with these guys, you won’t regret it. Brad.

Chili met us at the doc on time ready to go. Straight out the inlet and fishing shortly after that. We caught a nice sailfish early on the turned our attention to catching king fish. We pulled 8 on board and missed 2. Which is great odds. Awesome crew that worked hard the whole time.

Let me tell you what..... these guys did an awesome job. From the very beginning of our trip, they were professional and courteous. The deck hands Fernando and Sebastin worked tirelessly to keep lines in the water with fresh bait. Captain Rogelio was nothing short of amazing. He put us on some great fish. Then he fileted our fish. Then he told us where to take it locally to have it cooked. 10/10 fucking rockstars. Will repeat.

Was able to book a last minute short charter with Captain Rogelio while in Isla. The boat was pristine, the captain was amazing and the crew did everything possible to keep the fish biting. We were dealing with seaweed and the crew was making sure to free the lines/lures constantly to give us the best chance to get on the fish. Couldn’t ask for a better set-up. Don’t hesitate booking. The fresh King Mackerel filets were delicious.

Amazing day-great fishing with the kids hooking up with several beautiful bonito and one missed sailfish! Those jumps will haunt my dreams-but so exciting. Excellent snorkeling to end the day. Crew mates worked hard to get us hooked into the fish and the captain was a pleasure to chat with throughout the day. Highly recommend!

Captain seemed very knowledgeable and professional. His two mates were very welcoming and got right on top of making sure all the equipment was ready for the action. Unfortunately my wife and son didn't tolerate the motion of the sea and we ultimately cut the trip short after 2 hours. I would definitely go with this crew again if given the opportunity.

The Captain and crew were very attentive. They were knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to get every fish hooked to the boat because they walked us through the reeling. The Captain put us on Bonitas and a huge Sail Fish which we were able to catch. This was the experience of a life time.

Rogelio made special arrangements to pick us up from our Villa dock. Had a rough day of fishing, but it wasn't from lack of trying. Found out later that the fish weren't biting anywhere. Still managed to land a Barracuda, but we threw it back. Captain actually kept trying for an EXTRA hour to get us more chances. Then after that, he let us snorkel a shipwreck nearby for another 15 minutes or so... He then dropped us off at the dock to our Villa.

What a great day on the water! This is my second time out and Pascual and crew did not disappoint. We caught beautiful Mahi Mahi and soooo many Bonito! I highly recommend this crew!! You won’t find another crew that will work this hard for you to get fish in the boat!
