If you’re looking for a blend of culture, beaches, and serious angling action, then you can’t beat Mazatlán. This bustling city is home to historical landmarks, a 21-mile long boardwalk, and access to world-class deep sea fishing grounds. It’s no surprise, then, that a Mazatlán fishing adventure is top of the list of things to do here. 
 
Inshore mangroves and estuaries are the first thing that catch an angler’s eye downtown. Spend your time exploring these productive shallow waters, and you could get your hands on local delicacies, such as Corvina, Pompano, and Jacks, along with exotic Roosterfish and strong Snook. Head a little further out, and the reefs are home to prized Groupers, Snappers, Seabass, and Amberjack.
 
And, as if that wasn’t enough, you’re just a stone’s throw from the mouth of the Sea of Cortez. The unusually warm water here attracts Sailfish and Mahi Mahi to within just a couple of miles from shore. Head out to the deep, and Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin are on the cards, along with delicious Tuna, and even Swordfish if you’ve got gear to take your bait deep enough!
 
With such a range of fishing grounds, it’s no surprise that Mazatlán fishing charters have plenty of trips on offer, too. Half day trips can take you to the shallows and out to the reefs, while a full day trip can see you explore the riches of the Sea of Cortez. If you want to get your hands on the true monsters, though, an extended full day trip to the Pacifc is your best bet!
 

Rules & Regulations

Mazatlán fishing charters usually come with licenses covered for all on board. However, we suggest you check with your captain as it’s not always the case. Your professional guide will also make sure that you stick to all local bag and size limits.

January

Fishing in Mazatlán in January is great whatever the depth. Striped Marlin roam the bluewaters, Snook swarm the shallows, and Snapper and Grouper can be found on the reefs.

February

Mazatlán Carnival has been running since 1898 and is reportedly the biggest in Latin America behind Rio. See the parades and the beauty pageants, then head offshore for some daytime Swordfishing.

March

Inshore anglers won’t be disappointed by the fishing in March. Snook, Jack Crevalle, and Cero Mackerel are on fire, and you can run into Roosterfish and Mullet Snapper in the estuaries, too.

April

The Sailfish bite picks up in April and Striped Marlin are still going strong. Mahi Mahi arrive in big numbers offshore and Roosterfish show up in force in the shallows.

May

The first few Blue Marlin show up in May, just as the Striped Marlin bite starts to cool off. Sailfish and Mahi Mahi are in full swing, and there are plenty of Tuna, too. Get out there and hook one!

June

Big game season really gets going in June, with Blue and Black Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Yellowfin Tuna. Inshore, this is your last chance for awesome Snook fishing and the Roosterfish are biting hard.

July

Blue and Black Marlin are at their peak, as are Sailfish. This is your best chance of landing a Billfish Slam, if you can take the heat. Beware, the mercury can rise above 90 pretty easily.

August

The summer sun burns on throughout August. Head offshore to get some air and try your luck at Billfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna. Otherwise, take on huge Roosterfish in the shallows.

September

September 16th is Mexican Independence Day. Crowds gather to remember the grito (shout) that kicked it all off. Escape the noise by hitting the water in search of Roosterfish and Marlin.

October

October is the last month of Mazatlán's world-famous Bull Mahi season. Head out for your chance to beat the town’s record – a monster 83-pounder hauled aboard in the ‘70s.

November

November marks the most iconic festival in the Mexican calendar: el Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). See the parades then get offshore to enjoy the end of peak Billfish season.

December

With average highs of 80 degrees and four different Billfish to target, you couldn’t ask for a better place to spend the holidays. Hit the reefs and hook up some Snapper for a real festive feast.

I don't know if our experience is typical. We went fishing at 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. Maybe the fish bite better earlier or later in the day?

We did the inshore fishing which is fun because it's very hands on fishing and we caught several different species. We were not able to keep the fish as the cruise ship doesn't allow it back on and we didn't have time to do a cook your catch, which we would of done had we had the time. The crew was very appreciative of the fish and its good to know they will use it.

Had an awesome day fishing. Captain and deck hand were great, knew what they were doing and very friendly and attentive. Only thing that could have been better was a couple pieces of equipment could have been newer/in better shape. Overall I would highly recommend this charter, and more than likely book with them again on our next visit

Captain was great and company was very good at communicating. Hoped for the larger boat but they honoured the share price on the smaller boat. Boat was a little beat up but still seemed safe Caught 3 mahi mahi and got to see a sailfish go for our line Crew didn’t show but was happy to help out as I do a lot of fishing as well. We had fun and caught fish that’s what it’s about

Juan and Tony were great leaders and worked extremely hard to find and hook the most fish possible. They were also very flexible with scheduling around our Cruise Ship arrival. Definitely worth every penny, but they were also one of the cheapest, so it was a Win/Win! Thx to all!!! 😀🙏❤️

Was one of the best trips ever. We had a chance at a marlin and Mahi but didn't get them in the boat. At the end of the trip caught 11 yellow fin had 4 cleaned stop at a place and had them cooked for use 3 different ways. Tasted great. If I could have our 2 friends and my with would be giving 10 stars. I highly recommend aqua sports and we will be going again. Thank you aqua sports

My son and I had an incredible day of bass fishing. Our guises were really good and lake pichachos is a great fishery with a ton of potential! We caught and released about 50 2-3 lb largemouth in the 4 hours we were on the lake and missed another 20-30 fish. We were met at the cruise port as promised and the the drive to the lake (about 1 hour) was an adventure in itself. We were able to see the city and countryside. We will re book this trip every chance we get.
