Be prepared for a workout on a yellow fin tuna. Much harder than I expected but worth the all the effort!

Tuna were a great fish to go after. The water was amazing and I would have to say some of the best fishing I’ve ever experienced.

Hire a local panga like Hidalgo Sportfishing - it is cheaper and supports the locals. You get great opportunity to fish with the full attention of a local captain who really knows the hot spots.

The sun is bright and the weather is beautiful. Message the captains before booking and understand what style of fishing they do, such as trolling, jigging, stick baits, drifting live bait. I like to have options and a captain that is willing to switch things up as conditions might dictate,

Understand it is into the rainy season, so the weather and waves can be rough. Still big fish to be caught.

Full day is best to get out as far as you need to fish for the big fish. Bathe yourself in sunscreen!

These excursions are not for the hardcore fishermen types who want to do everything, i.e., bait the hooks, throw the lines out, etc.,

Live bait for rooster is definitely the best, especially if you're looking for a big one ! Once done, move to popping and jigging around the rocks... soooo good !!

Remember that it's called "fishing" and not "catching" for a reason. Some days the fish just aren't there. Understand which months are best for the type of fish you're hoping to catch. If you've got specific questions, contact the respective charter contact for details. All of them seemed very willing to assist and answer any questions.

We also cruised out to Pacific ocean for deep sea fishing. Waves were gentle and the ride was smooth.

Wear shorts and flip flops due to wading to dingy to take you to the boat. Be prepared to take fish home with you.
