Sport Fishing in Punta de Mita

article-image

September and October are among the best times of the year to fish in Punta Mita with perfect water temperatures around 84 degrees in the Bay of Banderas. Here’s the scoop for sports fishing in Punta de Mita:

To start, just find the reef at Anclote and you will have plenty of action! A bit further out, there are respectably sized Dorado averaging 20 to 30 pounds and Sailfish running from 70 to 100 pounds. At the Marieta Islands / El Morro there have been some nice sized Rooster fish, Sailfish, Small Dorado, Bonito, Skip Jack Tuna and larger Jack Crevalls. Head out to El Banco and go southwest from the high spots about twelve miles for football Tuna and possibly Marlin. The Rooster fish are wildly biting around Sayulita. In Corbeteña there are Yellowfin Tuna well over 200 pounds, Sailfish in the 70 to 100 pounds, Blue Marlin which have taken over the rock and are ranging from 300 to 600 pounds, Cubera Snapper and Wahoo it won´t get much better than this!

For options on boats, head down to the Punta de Mita Co-op on Avenida Anclote, where the jetties are located, just beyond “Restaurant Row” to rent a panga / tel 329.291.6298, Punta Mita Expeditions / En Reacccion a local fav also on Restaurant row 329.291.6649 or for a special treat the St. Regis Punta Mita Resort now has the Mondrian Yacht. And of course our own Punta Mita institution, the Four Seasons Resort for yacht charters with all the comfort and amenities one would expect from the Four Seasons.

By the way, don’t forget your camera…most fish are released back into the wild.This “catch & release” policy is encouraged by most fishing boat charters that operate in Mexico but never before a proud picture moment for when you catch the big one!

After a successful day of fishing if you want to savor what you caught head to a local fish shack re: one of Punta de Mita’s wonderful beachfront restaurants where the kitchen will gladly turn your oceanic bounty into a feast fit for a mermaid king.
