Mexico Offshore Fishing Lodge #OI-BLT1

Charter fishing for sailfish in Mexico

Trip #OI-BLT1

Remote, Mexico Fishing Lodge

This authentic Mexican fishing community is tucked along the Costa Grande, a 150-mile stretch of pristine pacific coastline.

You’ll be impressed by the unspoiled beauty of the Costa Grande. Resting 50 nautical miles south of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Puerto Vicente is hidden away from the crowds and traffic of Mexico’s booming tourist destinations. Don’t expect strip malls or luxury spas here – instead, you’ll get pristine beaches, litter-free coastlines and friendly, welcoming people who aren’t caught up in the hustle of daily city life. But of course, the main attraction is the sailfishing.

Offshore Fishing

Ranked #2 in the World for Sailfishing by Sport Fishing Magazine.

Productive fishing is found only one mile off the shore from the lodge. This is because the Sierra Madre Mountains that run along Costa Grande extend into the ocean and then immediately drop off, creating deep waters that provide the perfect habitat for migratory trophy fish. Offshore trips are ideal adrenaline-seeking anglers. You’ll target massive pelagic fish including Marlin, Tuna, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Barracuda.

Despite all this great angling, you’ll probably be the only boat on the water when you fish with us. This section of the Costa Grande coastline is too far away for the big chartered fishing vessels from Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo to travel to on a regular basis. And without the crowds, you’ll have a much more relaxed fishing vacation.

The offshore species found in these waters include:

  • Pacific Sailfish
  • Striped Marlin
  • Dorado
  • Yellowfin Tuna
  • Wahoo

Mexico Roosterfishing Lodge
The fishing lodge rests along a half-moon-shaped beach, and provides an authentic, old-world Mexico experience.

Inshore Fishing

Inshore trips are great for beginners or guests who are more prone to seasickness. You’ll stay a little nearer to the lodge and be fishing right outside the break of the surf off the pristine beaches that stretch out from the village. You won’t be targeting the billfish on these days but the species you’ll encounter will be equally impressive and aggressive like Roosterfish, Sierra, Spanish Mackerel, and Skipjack Tuna. Some of these inshore species are fish which can be made into ceviche by the ladies at the lodge if you ask them. Your captains can help identify the fish you’re catching as you’ll often see a variety caught in a single day.

The inshore species found in these waters include:

  • Jack Crevalle
  • Bonita
  • Spanish Mackerel
  • Roosterfish
  • Snook

Lodging and Accommodations

The fishing lodge rests along a half-moon-shaped beach, and provides an authentic, old-world Mexico experience.

The lodge is a hand-made adobe building with seven rooms, each with their own bathroom and air conditioning. Cool off with a soak in the small outdoor pool and then unwind under a thatched-roof palapa while sipping a frosty beer. These little perks are nice. But what you’ll remember the most (aside from the fishing, of course) will be the fantastic Mexican food and friendly service.

Fresh snacks and drinks are always within reach at the lodge. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are also included during your stay. Savor authentic Mexican fare and a wide range of seafood dishes, including fresh-caught tuna sashimi, prepared by a talented chef. And if you have any special requests, just ask. Some understanding of Spanish is not required but will help communication quite a bit while you’re there; this rural Mexico and hasn’t really had much exposure to the tourist destinations so most people in the village have had little reason to speak anything but Spanish their whole lives.

  • Each room includes a private bathroom and air conditioning
  • Small pool surrounded by landscaped gardens
  • Common area with a hammock and a patio
  • Nearby, soft-sand beach with palapas for shade
  • All food is included: breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks
