Bottom Fishing in Cozumel

Cozumel bottom fishing is made great by one simple thing: The largest reef system on the continent is found just a couple of miles away. The reef offers year-round fishing for Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish and many more delicious food fish. There are also plenty of Barracuda and Jacks to keep you on your toes if things seem too easy. 

What Can I expect from a Bottom Fishing Trip?

The one thing you can definitely expect is a lot of fish. Even in the quiet summer months, you will find a huge variety of tasty table species. In fact, the only thing stopping you from reaching your limits will be the permanent population of big, bitey Barracuda. You just have to take it as paying your dues when you pull in a severed line or a half-eaten fish.
 
On a half day trip you can catch plenty of fish; on a full day trip you can do so much more. Lots of Cozumel bottom fishing charters offer combo packages, spending half the day on the reef and the other half in deeper waters, battling big game Pelagics like Sailfish, Wahoo, and even Marlin. This is a great way to keep things interesting when you have already caught enough fish to eat for a week.

How much will it cost?

You can find a half day bottom fishing trip for as little as $300-$400 aboard one of the many center consoles operating around the island, with full days costing about half as much again. If you fancy a little more luxury you can charter a sportfishing boat in the 30’ range for around $500 for a half day.
 
If you are planning on combining bottom fishing with the great deep sea fishing opportunities the island offers you may want to switch up to something a bit more high-tech. There are a ton of awesome cruisers docked in Cozumel’s marina, with prices starting from around $900 for a full day and reaching as high as their tall tuna towers. These are the real deal, with professional, bilingual crews, tournament-grade tackle, and 5-star service.

What anglers said about Bottom Fishing in Cozumel

If you plan to go reef fishing it is for beginners and you will have a lot of action. If you are not getting bites you may need to check your line or bait. Try to keep the bait as close to the bottom as possible as you can while you "drift" fish. That is how I would explain reef fishing. If you go deep sea fishing most of the fishing is done at the surface and trolling so the equipment does most of the work.

Early March is not great for trolling and can be hit or miss. Reef fishing seems consistent. Check with guides on what seems best for the times your fishing

Best fishing season seems to be in spring/summer, but you can catch other species in fall / winter with a good Captain. Definitely recommend Abrimar / Captain Mario to take you on a very private trip. He grew up on the island- his dad was a fisherman who taught him where the fish are!!

Taxi’s to the marina will try to charge high fees for transportation. Make sure to set a price before departure or arrange with charter. Also, make sure to communicate your expectations to the captain before the trip. Make sure there are no hidden fees. You can keep your catch and ask resort chef to prepare a meal for you. Bring sunscreen and take some Dramamine 1hrs before your trip to avoid sea sickness.

If your debating between the 4 hour or 6 hour trip I would fully recommend doing the full 6 hour trip. We caught half of our fish in the last 2 hours of the trip. Gives the crew the best chance to get you on the fish.
