Cruising guide to Mexico (Pacific Coast, Sea of Cortez, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean)

Mexico‘s extensive coastlines include the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Mexico has friendly people, unique food, art, archeology, pyramids, haciendas and 6,000 miles of shoreline.

Weather ranges from the snow mountains of the Sierras, to rainy jungles in the Southeast, and the desert heat of the Northwest. Great anchorages, nice weather, warm sand beaches, lots of golf courses and resorts, and excellent sport fishing are just a few of the reasons why Mexico is ranked the 8th major destination for foreigner visitors.

Mexico, is a federated Union of thirty-one states and a federal district located in North America. It is bounded on the north by the United States; on the south and west by the North Pacific Ocean; on the southeast by Guatemala, Belize, and the Caribbean Sea; and on the east by the Gulf of Mexico. Covering almost 2 million square kilometers, Mexico is the fifth-largest country in the Americas by total area and the 14th largest in the world. With an estimated population of 109 million, it is the 11th most populous country, and the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world. The capital, Mexico City, is one of the most populous cities on Earth.

MEXICO — SPORTFISHING:

Sport fishing is popular in Baja California and on the Pacific coast.

More striped marlin are probably caught recreationally at the Mexican tourist mecca of Cabo San Lucas than anywhere else in the world. Large fleets of local and American sportfishing boats fish the productive banks and offshore grounds of this renowned hot spot. Striped marlin may be caught year round in Cabo waters but the heaviest concentrations seem to show up in late autumn and good numbers stay around into the spring.

Further north on the Pacific coast of the Baja peninsula, great concentrations of striped marlin also seasonally gather in the area of Magdalena Bay.

1 week $25.80 US

1 month $37 US

NOTE: YOU MUST OWN A LICENCE, EVEN IF YOU ONLY HAVE ONE HOOK ONBOARD AND YOU DON’T INTEND TO FISH.

HOW TO GET A MEXICAN FISHING LICENCE:

LICENSE REQUEST FORM

MEXICAN SPORTFISHING REGULATIONS:

When operating a boat that carries fishing equipment in Mexican waters, it is necessary to hold a valid fishing license for everybody aboard the boat, regardless of age and whether fishing or not. A Fishing License is not required when fishing from land.

Only one rod or line with hook is permitted in the water, per person, but there is no restriction regarding the number of replacement items.

A fishing license allows to capture only fin fish. It does not allow to capture any other mollusks or crustaceans, and their capture by anyone is strictly prohibited. Totuava, turtles and marine mammals are under protection of the Ministry and may not be captured at any time.

To capture bottom fish, up to four hooks on a vertical line may be used.

The use of electric reels is restricted to disabled fishermen only, after written authorization for the Ministry before use.

MEXICO FISHING BAG AND POSSESSION LIMITS:

In ocean waters and estuaries the limit is a total of ten fish per person per day, with no more than 5 catches of a single specie, except of the species of Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish and Shark, of which only one specimen from this group is allowed per day, and which counts a five toward the overall 10 fish limit, or Dorado, Roosterfish, Shad, or Tarpon, of which only two samples from this group are allowed, and which count as five toward the overall 10 fish limit.

Limit on inland bodies of water (rivers, lakes, dams, etc.) is five fish per day, whether of a single specie or in combination.

Underwater fishing is limited to five fish per day, using rubber band or spring type harpoons, and only while skindiving.

There is no limit to the practice of catch and release, as long as the fish that exceed the bag limit be returned to their environment in good survival condition.

Where sportfishing is conducted from boats out at sea for longer than three days, the bag limit will be the equivalent of three times the amounts mentioned above.

MEXICAN FISHING VIOLATIONS:

It is illegal to capture and maintain alive any fish for ornamental purposes.

It is prohibited to receive any financial gain from the product obtained through sportfishing.

It is prohibited to dump trash, litter or substances that harm the aquatic flora or fauna, whether on lakes, river banks, shores or oceanic waters.
