What anglers said about fishing in Sonora

Check seasons on what kind of fish you want to catch and plan accordingly. Even reach out to the captain before and see what the options are.

Late August is very warm/hot at Rocky Point (118 degrees on the day we went).Fishing was excellent but would probably be more enjoyable during cooler temperatures.

The water was a little rough so motion sickness brackets or Dramamine! We loved it and were catching fish like crazy!

Other than the heat, fishing is great. This was our fist time out in Puerto Penasco. We did a half day so we didn't go far out and target large sport fish. But was a great time pulling in Triggers and smaller reef fish. Definitely will be back out fishing soon. Thinking a little further out chasing bigger ones next time.

If you want small game go with this trip. They know where the fish are at but if you want big game like 50lb fish go with another charter. And mahi mahi is apparently a target fish of theirs but they told us on the trip that they don’t even fish for mahi mahi.

Bring a fishing pole and you can keep fishing off the docks when your trip is over. You can catch trigger fish, halibut and sting rays.

Use Fishing Booker, or do business directly with a captain of a local fishing charter. Beware of the "my uncle owns a boat" guy who is a middle man scammer.

Book through Fishing Booker. Read the reviews! E-mail the Captain with questions prior to your trip. Make sure you both have the same expectations of where you will go and what species you will target. DO NOT book with the salespeople on the malecon! You will be wasting your time and money on a very forgettable trip.

Choose your charter company carefully, they make all the difference between a so-so trip and a great one.

The wind effects the water more than anything, so hope for a day with little wind.

This is mostly a bottom fishing fishery. Fish are generally under 10 lbs., but bigger fish are possible. If you are just looking for a fun day on the water any of the guides here will be great. If you are a more serious angler I would recommend bringing your own gear and be ready to try things your skipper may not be familiar with if different opportunities arise.and be flexible.

The fishing here is primarily bottom fishing for smaller fish. A good number of fish caught can be expected. If your looking for bigger game, you need to get further south in the Sea of Cortez.

Recommendation to newbies.....pack lots of water, some prepackaged snacks, and have fun! Even if you didn't catch any fish....enjoy life and the beautiful day you will have out on the water.

Fish with Chilean or bass meat as bait, make sure your line and bait are at bottom of sea floor, when you feel the line bump pull fast and hard to lay the hook, also trigger fish fight pretty hard for so have fun?

Make sure the weather is calm if you want to catch anything other than sea bass or trigger fish.
