Come Compete in the Game Fishing Tournament

This tournament was so successful in its first year in 2018 that it’s back again for the second time and expected to become a regular yearly event. It’s been set for Saturday, March 16, and teams of four are invited to sign up today. Both amateurs and experienced anglers are more than welcome to participate, and the cost is $180 per fisherman with a good lunch included. Start time is 8 a.m., and it will run until 1 p.m. Those lodging with us here at Exceptional Stays may count on our dedicated concierge team to get your party registered for this event. Just let us know that you’re interested in participating in the Punta Mita Game Fishing Tournament when you make your reservations for your preferred vacation rental.

And More Fishing

If the tournament didn’t quite satisfy your need for fishing or you prefer to fish without the competition, then we’ve got the perfect fishing charter for you to enjoy here in Punta Mita. These are just a few of the very best tours that you might like to experience. Our team here at Exceptional Stays is available to book any of these fishing expeditions in advance of your arrival so that you won’t have to worry about these companies already being fully booked.Men fishing in Mexico caught Wahoo

Y-Knot Fishing and Tours

The perfect option for those who want to keep their catch, Y-Knot Fishing and Tours offers half-day and full-day fishing expeditions for those of all skill levels. The crew will ice, clean and bag your fish, and the tour also includes a licensed captain and an experienced deckhand, live bait, top-of-the-line Shimano/Calstar rods, reels and tackle and a boxed lunch and drinks for those who want to spend the entire day fishing or snacks and drinks for the half-day excursion. These are just a few of the fish that you are most likely to catch during the months of February and March.

  • Dorado
  • Jack
  • Sailfish

  • Grouper

This tour is limited to groups of no more than four individuals due to space restrictions on the fishing boat. While no one can guarantee a prize catch, this tour company is well known for having the best local captains who know exactly where the big fish are biting on any given day.

Big Tuna Sport Fishing

This company is a good choice for those who are looking for a catch-and-release experience. You may choose a full-day or a half-day fishing trip either inshore or offshore, and you may expect to catch the same type of fish as mentioned above. Just let the captain know what type of fish you want to go for, and he’ll know just where to take you. Instead of taking the fish home at the end of the day, you’ll have a photo to commemorate your big catch. This company also offers whale-watching tours during this time of the year, so you might want to fish one day and see the incredible humpback whales the next.
