The seas can get pretty rough. I was expecting more trolling action with mahi-mahi and blackfin tuna but instead got the bigger fish like sailfish and wahoo. Bottom fishing was very good when the current was cooperative.

I would recommend Puerto Morelos for first time fishermen. Opportunity to catch some nice size fish. I believe we got lucky with the white marlin, but the mahi mahi were pretty fun to catch vs other areas that may be more challenging.

Just know the sea is often pretty rough. Little children may not enjoy that part. My older teen was OK with it. You know what your children can handle. Something to consider. I highly recommend. Captain and first mate were great.

Unlike some of the bigger places Puerto Morelos is tranquil quiet place which is just what you need after a days fishing. Take your catch to Sirena restaurant and ask the to cook it for you then take a shot walk along the sea front followed by an ice cream. Lovely little place

Hire a boat because no matter how many fish you catch it's an enjoyable and fun adventure being on the water in Mexico. I also think it's nice to go with a small group so there's plenty of action for everyone and the personal attention is worth it.

If your looking for billfish you have to wait until May, but bottom fishing is great all year long and you take your catch to any restaurant and they will prepare it anyway you would like. PTO is a great place to fish and relax.

Yes. It is easy to get to the boats. It is a fishing village with many available trips.

It was my first experience fishing in Mexico. I’m a child of the bays of the South Jersey Shore so this was an eye opening experience. Would definitely book again.

It was our first trip and we listened to what the Capt and First mate told us. They are the experts. (Would take caution bringing small children)

Wear waterproof clothes if water is even a little choppy because we were sprayed the whole time while trolling and the sun wasn’t out so we were cold

Make sure if you’re going out of the marina or the fisherman’s pier next to the crooked lighthouse.

If you're not a seasoned fisherman, be prepared with Dramamine. The earlier in the day, the better they bite!

Nice small town feel. We took our filleted fish to the nearby restaurant and they cooked it for us with a great spread of yummy sides.

Leave some time after fishing for lunch and sight-seeing. Puerto Morelos looks like a nice area for tourists.

WAY too much sargassum (sargaso) the effectively troll. We got luck with the wind, but our trip was sandwiched between days of windy conditions.

Call ahead to ensure your trip is not cancelled. I was told the harbor master closes the harbor when windy. It was windy everyday we were in Mexico at the end of May 2019.

Watch the weather, we had a few storms roll in and it made for some rough water. Next time I will wait untill the week before and check the weather first.

Bottom fishing, skip the sport fishing unless they say that have caught some in the last couple days.

The wind and weather made it almost impossible to find a day to go out. The ocean is fierce and if you are not a true boater you have never made it out of the dock.

Don’t expect much trolling in October. Seems like great bottom fishing year round though.
