Fishing in the Baja can be quite an experience.

When, Where and How to Fish Mexico
Dawn and dusk are the best times to walk a Mexican beach with a light spinning rod or a fly rod, fishing line and a handful of lures or streamer flies.

Small baitfish gathers near the shore during low light, and the big fish follow them. Look for diving pelicans, sea birds or squawking, screaming flocks of gulls swirling over a spot near the shore.

Birds mean lots of bait, and bait means schools of big, hungry fish.

Savvy anglers also look for deep channels between shoreline shallows or reefs, rocky headlands and areas where boulders poke out of the water as such areas are a very popular spot for fish to gather.

Mexican Shore Tackle
A medium spinning rod and reel spooled with 8-pound to 12-pound-test line works well. Lighter line means more hookups; fast casts – and maybe a few lost big fish.

But many anglers slide big fish – ten pounds or more – onto the beach with light tackle.

Simple lures, such as Krocodiles, Kastmasters, Rapalas and inexpensive plastic jigs, such as Mister Twisters, get hammered whenever big fish are around. Anglers should buy these lures in quarter-ounce to one-ounce sizes.

Lures with silvery finishes, which mimic the small sardines and mullet, work best.F
Fly rod anglers should spool intermediate lines onto 8-weight to 10-weight rods. Poppers, Clouser Minnows, Lefty’s Deceivers and Crease Flies in sizes 8 through 1/0 work well.

Fly fishing Mexican surf

Roosterfish – the big, finicky and very popular prize catch of the Mexican surf – demand a fast retrieve of the streamer fly or popper. Rooster fish can get as big as 50 pounds. Be sure to ‘set your hook’ quickly and efficiently.

If the surf is bigger than two feet, it’s a better idea to use a spinning rod, as waves have a nasty habit of tangling fly lines.

But fly fishermen casting streamer flies often wallop the fish when the surf is small.

More Tips for Mexican Fishing
Successful anglers keep moving and casting along the beach until they find concentrations of fish. Staying in one spot and casting over and over again is a recipe for a fishless outing.

Many anglers enjoy the casual pleasure of wearing shorts, walking along the beach and casting toward likely spots.

Often the fish show themselves, as they beat the surface to a froth while chasing little baitfish.

Anglers often use a small shoulder bag to carry spare lures, wire leaders – in case toothy sierra mackerel show up – a pair of pliers and sunscreen as it is sunny most of year round and the fish are really biting in summer, but really covers at least three seasons.

Overall you’ll find the best assortment of fly fishing catches along the Sea of Cortez section of the Mexico Coastline.

So as you can see, planning a group fishing trip for your party staying at the Inn at Rincon would be a worthwhile idea when staying in the Baja Mexico. You’ll have more than your catch of fish.
