Fishing the Baja Peninsula
The fishing in the fertile waters of the Baja Peninsula is truly spectacular all year round. Here the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez and the massive depth of water just off shore and myriad underwater canyons and seamounts ensure a hugely diverse marine habitat. This abundance of nutrients attracts enormous shoals of Sardines , Herring and other small bait fish , following in hot pursuit are the Sierra, Bonito and Skipjacks and hunting them is every fisherman's dream quarry : Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) and Wahoo.
The Marlin population is abundant all year round and have earned Cabo the title of Marlin Capital of the World. September thru to February are favourite months for these fish. Dorado, Tuna and Wahoo are also available at that time. In the summer months when the water warms the Dorado and Tuna action increases and peaks in the months of August until December. Every year catches of Yellow Fin Tuna over 200 lbs and Dorado up to 80 lbs rip lines out.
Big Blue, Striped and Black Marlin migrate in at this time to feed on the smaller Dorado and Tuna and landing one of these fish in the 400-600 lb class is not unusual. Baja Sur is famous for its autumn Marlin tournaments where total prize money can be over one million dollars!
Clients are strongly encouraged to release their Billfish. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter in order to preserve the species and quality of the sport fishing in Baja Sur.
Mexican law dictates that everyone ( whether fishing or not ) who sets foot on a Chartered Sport fishing boat must have a valid fishing licence, these can be easily and inexpensively purchased through your travel agent, the recommended option. However, licences can be purchased in La Paz for your trip, but require proof of identification and sufficient advance notice. Fishing licences are not required for sightseeing or snorkelling.
