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 finessing world class Snook, Sea Bass, Roosterfish or Snapper right in the surf, there is something for everyone. Our pictures will include spearfishing, cast netting, surf casting, bottom fishing, big game trolling, hand-lining and Extreme Tube Fishing where we jig with swim baits and also use live shrimp. brings you complete, factual and current information on all aspects of fishing in Mazatlan. A big shout-out and thank you to my friend and colleague,

John Snow with 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. As far as personal experience, 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 share with  you everything you need to know about fishing in the Pearl of the Pacific.
