Welcome to Mazatlan's Angler Information Center & Online Store
This is Dawn, backwoods BC girl who took to Extreme Tube Fishing like
a fish to water.
She is hereby crowned Ms. ifishmazatlan 2018-2019
iFishmazatlan is a proud member of the IGFA
2018-2019 has been the best inshore fishing we have had since 2012. This due to the cold water brought in by El Nino. (climate.gov)

A local Mazatlan surf fisherman
taking his monster Roosterfish
for a piggy-back ride, on his bike
down our Malecon, Classic!
Amigo Carlos G. lands this beast right out of the surf March 2019. One of the biggest I have seen in years. Well done.
May the fish be with you.
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.
iFishMazatlan.com 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 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. 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.
