Mexico - Big Game
Most of the anglers would try Big Game fishing at least once in their life, allthough this kind of adventure can be normally quite expensive. It takes several hours to get to the fishing spot with powerful motorboats. The costs are shared among 5-6 anglers on the boat, and they normally decide at the beginning in which order they are going to catch the fish. The only problem if there are only 2 fish per day...
There is place in Mexico along the Pacific Coast, where - thanking to the great circumstances - we can provide the Big Game fishing for a really reasonable price.
There are plenty of good fishing spots close to the coast, where there is a huge stock of sailfish. Beside sailfish we can also catch powerful golden mackerels and - depending on the weather and water temperature - tunas and marlins as well.
The Pacific Ocean is mainly calm in this area, the wawes are quite long, and that is the reason why we cannot feel them so intensively. On the other hand there are plenty of cleavages along the Mexican Pacific Coast, only 10-20 miles from the shore where the different streams attract the smaller fish and of course the predators. Nevertheless, you can catch sailfish within one mile from the cost, so there is no need for an expensive and powerful motorboat. The local fishermen are deeply involved in tourism, they use 6-8 meter long super panga boats, which have a smaller engine, that means less fuel consumption. In most cases there are 2 anglers hiring such a boat with an experienced captian, which means that every second fish is yours!
Beside the offshore fishing we must definetly mention the inshore fishing as well. It is a great fun to catch smaller bonitos, perch and pikes with a 30-60 gramm spinning road. Another populare inshore method is fishing with a dead fish bait using a float, or wobbling directly in front of the rocks.
These small Mexican towns along the Pacific Coast have a very unique atmosphere. Most of them became involved in the tourist business while keeping their autentic character. This is a trip where you can bring along your family as well. Some of our earlier guests returned here with their wives. The boys can go fishing early in the morning, while the girls can enjoy a good "beauty sleeping" and a nice breakfast, before swimming in the pool and shopping in the local craftmen's street. They can gather in the afternoon for a cocktail, before having a delicious dinner while enjoying the sunset over the ocean...
Another great advantage of the Mexican Big Game fishing that you do not have to suffer from bad weather, mosquitos, etc. There is a pleasant 20+ Celsius, simple but clean hotelrooms, delicious and reasonable restaurants, friendly and reliable people, great handicrafts, amazing sandy beaches and good bars, where you can have a Corona or Tequila with a cigar while explaining the fishing adventures.
With the main focus on sailfish our peak season is from November to March. The period around Christmas and New Year's Eve can be crowded.
