​​​​​​​Anglers around the world share a strong common bond, "we love to fish". Mazatlan is a place where one's passion for fishing can be satisfied in many ways. From wrangling in big game such as Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish or Dorado miles offshore, to world class Bass fishing at Lake Salto and Picacho and if that's not enough we have surfcasting for Snook, Sea Bass, Roosterfish or Snapper right from the shore, there is something for everyone.

While tourists began coming to Mazatlan to fish as early as the 1930's, I have been fishing the shores of Mazatlan since 1979. Through those years I've made many "fishing buddies" young and old, from whom I have been blessed with great company, unforgettable stories and an extensive knowledge about fishing in Mazatlan. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for sharing their knowledge of fishing with me and I look forward to many more years of tight lines with you all. It is in that spirit I present you with everything you need to know about fishing in the Pearl of the Pacific. Big shout-out and thank you to my friend and colleague, John Snow with Mexfish.com for his assistance with a large part of the local species identification information, without question, the most complete online source available for identifying fish in Mexico.

​iFishMazatlan.com endeavors to brings you complete, factual and current information on all aspects of fishing in Mazatlan.

Tight Lines,

Jason Potts
