Beach Fishing

Batteling a roosterfish from shore, one of the many adventures fly fishing at East CapeThese eight hour tours are personalized and cater to the angler looking for a little different Baja fishing experience and can be done either during the day or at night. Expert guides will take you on an adventure to discover different points along the more than 80 miles of beaches we have. Some head north and others south; depending on where the best fishing is - that is where they will take you.

Fishing from the beach has become more popular in the past few years; providing a new fishing experience for even our “offshore” veterans. On this tour you will learn different techniques for fishing from the beach while experiencing the sincerity and beauty of desolate landscapes and beaches along the coast of Baja California Sur. This is also a great opportunity for the kids since you won’t be sitting in one place too long – that is unless the bite is on! Fishing is usually done with spinning reel/rod set-ups and different types of tackle. During the day trips you can often watch the fish attacking topwater lures on the surface. Night trips are a totally different experience, as you will be visiting different reefs along the beach, baitfishing and targeting different species. Both are truly an experience and education you will never forget.

Pre-arrange this trip and once onsite your guide will discuss the current options and make sure he understands your expectations so he can plan a fishing trip tailored specifically to your requests.

Super Panga

East Cape-Baja Fly fishing out of a Super Panga Our super pangas are skiff-type boats, the most common type found throughout the Mexican coast. We add the “Super” because they have been upgraded with center consoles, sun decks, a small bathroom and are equipped with 90 hp engines or better as well as electrical equipment. Pangas are the most versatile for inshore fishing as they can get closer to the beach. They are also more convenient for bottom fishing because you can use the platform to cast and yoyo jigs. Many anglers prefer this size boat because there’s only the captain and themselves, making for a much “hands on” experience. Pangas can also be used to fish offshore under normal weather conditions.

Cruisers

Stripped Marlin one of the main species off shore for fly fishing at East CapeOur cruises are without a doubt the most comfortable boats in our fleet. A cruiser’s cabin has a private bathroom, sleeping area, accommodates more people and has a larger fishing deck. Distance is no problem for these vessels either as they are designed for the high seas. Offshore is where the main sportfishing species are found. Blue, black or striped marlin as well as the occasional short peak weevil (spearfish) are what you will find in our offshore waters. We encourage catch, photograph and release (CPR) of these great specimens and are the only resort in the East Cape that uses circle hooks for all of our bait hooks. If you’d prefer to catch something for the dinner table or smoking; the best tasting fish are dorado or tuna. Whether you find them by following birds diving in a baitfish feeding frenzy, breaking the surface as they push up the bait or following the porpoise, it is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding and unique experiences – not to mention the great meals they can provide.

Fishing is not the only reason for renting a cruiser. Many of our guests bring their families to enjoy what Jacques Cousteau described as, “The world's aquarium”. The East Cape and Sea of Cortez are one of the most biologically productive and diverse seas in the world. Locally, we have 16 types of whales that visit us during the winter months, dolphin, giant mantas, sharks, sea turtles and many other species will keep you on the lookout for your next great sighting. We also use our cruisers for our Surf packages and other activities. Check them out under the “Activities” tab at the top.
