Mexico and Baja California fishing trip pictures, fishing reports, and
sportfishing locations

The more than nine years of weekly sportfishing reports and photographs archived on this website were gathered from hundreds of resident and traveling anglers and dozens of charter fishing boat fleets at Cabo San Lucas, around Baja California and the Sea of Cortez, and major mainland Mexico Pacific and Atlantic coast vacation destinations such as Puerto Vallarta and Cancun.

They include current information on species caught, fish counts, charter boat names, beach fishing, conventional and fly fishing guides, the most effective fishing tackle, bait and lures, current sea surface water temperatures, ocean conditions and weather, peak fishing seasons, vacation travel updates, and the names of all reporters, whether they be large Cabo San Lucas hotel fleets or solo Spanish speaking "pangueros" with just one skiff — information that is critical in deciding when and where to fish during your trips to Mexico.

The large Fish Picture & Identification section contains on-the-spot pictures of game fish actually caught during Mexico vacations, some quite rare, but also including photos of all the favorites, which have been submitted by anglers. contains over 5,000 pages, and many thousands of photos, about saltwater deep sea fishing and inshore fishing from pangas, panga motherships, long range boats, cruisers, private boats, charter fishing boats, and from shore. (Note that this website includes only incidental information and comments on airline tickets, hotel rooms, and car rentals, mostly as mentioned in the reports of returning anglers.)

Particularly useful in answering that eternal question "Where and when should I go on my next trip?" are the more than 400 editions of "Mexico Fishing News" in the fishing report archive section. By browsing through more than nine years of weekly Mexico and Baja fishing reports and concentrating on the month and location of your planned vacation, you can get a realistic feel for the types of sportfishing opportunities that will probably be available to you during your planned vacation.
