Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Baja California

According to customer reviews, Lucky Sport Fishing Baja, Lucky Sportfishing Baja, and Todos Santos Adventures are some of the most popular fishing charters in Baja California. Full list of top fishing charters in Baja California.

The average price for a private 4 hour Baja California fishing trip is $328, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $721 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Lucky Sport Fishing Baja and Todos Santos Adventures received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Baja California.

The most popular fish species you can target are Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Yellowtail Amberjack, and Yellowfin Tuna. Top fishing techniques include Bottom Fishing, Trolling, and Light Tackle. Offshore fishing, inshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

A Baja California fishing adventure knows no limits. From the range of bays nearshore, to the deep waters of the Pacific, all the way round to the unusually warm waters of the Sea of Cortez, there’s no end to what you can get up to here. With warm weather year-round, you can come whenever you want and get your hands on some of the world’s most sought-after fish.
 
Speaking of the fish, what you’ll catch depends on where you go. The bays are full of Snappers, Groupers, Jacks, Mackerel, Seabass, and the exotic Roosterfish. Meanwhile, the Sea of Cortez is a haven for Yellowfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi. Sailfish come right up close to shore, while Striped, Black, and Blue Marlin are available offshore, alongside swarms of Yellowtails, Wahoo, and more. 
 
With so many fish available, you can get your fill on a trip as short as a half day in the bays and the Sea of Cortez. If you fancy an offshore adventure into the Pacific, you’ll want to spend at least a full day, with extended full trips on offer for the pros, too. 
 
Wherever you are in Baja California, you’re not far from a fishing charter. Hop over from SoCal and travel out of Ensenada, or hit the Bahia Tortugas or San Carlos further down the Pacific Coast. Los Cabos and its resort towns in the south are a hotspot for tourists, while every town and village up the Cortez coastline has something for you. 

Rules & Regulations

Many fishing charters in Baja California will include your license as part of the package, but it’s always worth checking with your captain before you head out. They’ll also know all there is about bag and size limits, so you know that you’re fishing within the law.

January

Start the year with a splash and come to the sunny shores of Baja California for a nearshore fishing adventure. Yellowtails and Mackerel will provide plenty of light tackle entertainment, along with a delicious dinner.

February

With the holiday fever well and truly over, a vacation surely beckons. Why not head to Mexico, where you can escape the winter blues and get your hands on a range of delicious fish in the shallow bays?

March

There’s still some time to go before the fishing season hits its stride in Baja California, but you can definitely get some early practice come March. Test your bottom fishing skills on the reefs to land some exotic fish.

April

You’ll really feel things starting to heat up in April, as monstrous Striped Marlin start making their way along the Pacific coast and Seabass return to the nearshore waters. Wherever you head, there’s something going on!

May

The whole peninsula comes alive with avid anglers scrambling to get on a fishing charter. Big game fish start coming nearer to shore and even to the Sea of Cortez, giving you a wider range of fish to target.

June

As you reach peak season, it’s difficult to decide where to go on your Baja California fishing adventure. Exotic Roosterfish are aplenty nearshore, with the big game trophies starting to congregate offshore.

July

There’s no doubt that offshore fishing reigns supreme come the height of summer. Blue and Black Marlin join their Striped cousins, along with Sailfish and Albacore to give you the fishing trip of a lifetime.

August

Yellowfin Tuna join the offshore party, even making their way around the peninsula and into the Sea of Cortez. Follow these monstrous, delicious creatures and get your fill of meat to take back to shore.

September

While the kids may be back in school, there’s no sign of things calming down in Baja California. In fact, the fishing has never been hotter, as the offshore beasts and nearshore beauties fill the waters for your enjoyment.

October

Make the most of the last of the deep water fishing opportunities, before the pelagics make their way out of the Sea of Cortez and away from Baja California for winter. Don’t miss out on Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and more.

November

There’s only one star offshore if you’re looking for a deep sea fishing adventure. If Wahoo’s not your thing, then fear not, as plenty of exciting smaller fish pack the shallow waters nearshore to keep you entertained.

December

What better way to see out the year than with a vacation to the warm seas? Come to Baja California in December and get your hands on Jack Crevalle, Mackerel, and many more prized inshore creatures.

Watch the weather and water temperature if your target species is sensitive to either or both. The ambient air on the water is perfect. We wore shorts and 50 spf fishing shirts. Very comfortable.

You may not get the species you are targeting, depending on water temperatures. The pelagic species move to warmer water if a cold current comes in.

Parking and finding the boat was a little tricky, but they called us and gave us assistance. Caught lots of bonitos, nothing else, maybe just due to time of year. We also went in the afternoon, so not the best time. Fishing Captain was a little slow to respond to emails, but eventually was able to communicate with him and make the changes we needed. They had water and chips for snacks, so remember to bring your own cooler and beer :)

Alex and his crew were wonderful! The boat is designed for fishing (not luxury), suitable bathroom and an area to get out of sun. He provided water, chips and coffee. We fished 8 hrs and we caught 35+ fish of all types. Would definitely go again!

The boat was perfect size for the six of us for 15+ hours. Left at 1am and slept till day break. First fish on about 30min after. Trolling the open ocean broke up the day perfectly catching pretty regularly while we were searching for kelp patties and to a rock fish spot. Caught about 8-10 dorado 6 blue fin 6-8 rock fish. We plan on booking again. Thanks to the crew for an enjoyable trip

We had a great time! Our group included 2 seniors, 2 adults, and 2 children (ages 8 and 10). The kids caught so many barracuda, and other fish, that we lost count. I would definitely recommend!
