Mazatlán has long been one of Mexico’s most popular sportfishing destinations. You can go after the many favorites of sport fishermen, Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Wahoo, Grouper and Yellowfin Tuna. If you should happen to catch Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna or Grouper, ask your about having your fish prepared, while it is still fresh, at one of the local restaurants.
The fleets are somewhat spread out in Mazatlán, the older Marina del Crestron is located near the lighthouse, in Mazatlán harbor. The newer marinas, El Cid and Marina Mazatlán are located at the northern end of the Golden Zone. It is always best to call first.
PLEASE – RELEASE ALL BILLFISH – If necessary; INSIST ON IT!
Mazatlán also offers the avid fisherman a bonus. Affordable Bass fishing tours are offered to the Culiacán and El Salto areas, nearby reservoirs, wetland areas and lakes. Inquire at one of the local travel agencies or see below. If you wish to bring you fish back with you, have it frozen by your charter operator. Check with your airline, as rules regarding cooler to transport you catch vary by airline.
