Tourists began coming to Mazatlan to fish in the early 1930's, I was introduced to fishing the waters of Mazatlan in 1979. Over the last 40 plus 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 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. ​

​Please email me any questions, talking shop about fishing is always welcome. 

Tight Lines,
