Fishing in Punta Mita

True fishing enthusiasts aren’t necessarily out on the professional fishing circuit, but they can be found everywhere. They are the men and women who can’t stop talking about their last fishing trip and regard their fishing pole as their most prized possession. You’ll know them by the way that they start looking at the clock wistfully right after lunch every Friday afternoon, while they count down the seconds until it’s time to get out to the local lake or river to start catching those fish. If you are one of those people who aren’t truly happy unless you are out wetting a line, then you owe it to yourself to schedule a trip to beautiful Punta Mita, Mexico, for what is likely to be the best fishing trip of your entire lifetime. You can even bring the entire family for vacation even if they don’t like to fish because Punta Mita promises the perfect tropical vacation with a huge variety of activities in an absolutely gorgeous setting.

Battling the Big One

If you are ready for the fishing challenge of a lifetime, then you can make arrangements to embark on one of Punta Mita’s convenient deep-sea fishing charters. Make sure you are prepared by arriving well-rested and in reasonable shape because you are about to be sailed out to the deepest waters. Once you’ve reached your destination, you will be buckled into a safety seat to await that first bite from a mighty fish that is ready to fight for its life.


The black marlin is a popular game fish that is often hooked in these waters, and the fight these fish will put you through is something that is spoken of with awe in all of the local restaurants and bars. The black marlin enjoys the title of being the fastest fish on the planet, and it can swim up to an incredible 80 miles per hour. That amazing swimming speed coupled with the fact that you may have a fish that weighs up to 1,000 pounds on your line may mean that you will be fighting to land it for several hours on end. There are several different kinds of game fish that may be attracted to your bait out in the deep blue sea. You may also expect to hook a variety of large sharks, yellow-fin tuna, blue marlin, sailfish, wahoo and dorado. Your captain will be ready to take your picture with your catch when you haul in the big one.

Up Close and Personal

You may also want to try something a little different with a spear-fishing adventure. If you are interested in scuba diving in Punta Mita’s clear waters, then you can combine that fun activity with this exciting way to catch fish. You may expect to spear such fish as amberjack, red snapper and roosterfish.

Fish From the Beach

If these other options don’t appeal to you, then you can still enjoy some amazing fishing right from the beach. This is a popular early morning activity in Punta Mita, and you can expect to reel in fish that may include sierra and crevalle jack.

Have Your Catch Prepared

While catch-and-release is mandatory for some fish and highly recommended for others, there are some fish that you may catch that you can keep for your dinner. Fortunately, several local Punta Mita restaurants are happy to let you bring your fresh catch right in to be prepared in a number of creative ways that will delight your taste buds.
