According to customer reviews, Pepe's Fleet - 28' Sport Panga, Pepe's Fleet - 28' Panga, and Bibi Fleet – 40’ Paty C are some of the most popular fishing charters in Mazatlán, Sinaloa. Full list of top fishing charters in Mazatlán.

Pepe's Fleet - 28' Sport Panga and Bibi Fleet – 40’ Paty C received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Mazatlán.

The most popular fish species you can target are Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Blue Marlin, and Yellowfin Tuna. Top fishing techniques include bottom fishing, light tackle, and trolling. Offshore fishing, inshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

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.

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

Best boat in mazatlan, captain was great and was able to get us on some mahi and caught the biggest one I’ve caught on any other charter. The boat had a lot of room to lay down or shit and enjoyed having the fighting chair

Not my first time deep sea fishing but by far my most memorable. Took 2 of my kids ages 10 and 12 with us. Within the first 45 minutes, we had already caught multiple fish and the day just kept getting better. Do not hesitate to book with this team.

My wife and I had an amazing day out on the water on the Sea Hunter and Captain Moses. We ended up with two huge Marlin, saw dolphins, whales, and a sea lion. Once in a lifetime opportunity. I highly recommend you book with Bibi Fleet.

Had a nice day fishing with Family on the Paty C. The boat is pretty slow but we were a group of 9 people so it's great for large groups you just have to enjoy the ride. We had caught a load of Perch and a few Pargo then snorkeled for a few hours. The last couple hours produced no fish, I was hoping to find some bait balls or surface action for fly fishing but no luck. Overall a fun day with plenty of fish for tacos, a smaller faster boat is probably better if you are trying to fly fish.

Hector and first mate did everything to get us on the fish. Fish just weren't have it. My 11 year old son caught a bait sized tuna of some sort. Saw sea turtles, dolphins, jellyfish, and a mako shark. It was a good day, would of been excellent if we had a bite. But that is fishing.

Bill and his son Kurt made this trip very easy, from hotel pickup, lunches/beverages and arranging the exact trip we wanted. The captain and crew were clearly experienced and as you can see from the pictures, my son landed a beautiful 125 pound blue marlin!! On top of that Kurt was so kind to arrange dinner for us at Pedro Y Lola, an amazing restaurant in Old Town Mazatlan that is must if you go. We will be back! Dave and Charlie
