Palmas de Cortez is located on the east side of the Baja Peninsular in Mexico and fishes the legendary Sea Of Cortez which is home to many different fish. The area the resort is located in has become world renowned for multiple strikes. With miles of untouched white sandy beaches, it is a magical place to be.
A huge draw for so many travelling anglers to this part of the world is the different variety of fish and fishing styles on offer. One day you could be trolling the stunning Sea Of Cortez looking for the odd floating fish attractors for all manner of billfish, then the next day you could be casting surface poppers to feeding Roosters and Jacks as they smash their way through huge bait shoals to get at your popper.
When targeting offshore species such as Blue Marlin, you can expect an average size of 200 – 300lb. The Sailfish are a good size in these waters too and have an average of around 80lb. Tuna range from 10lb to 200lb depending on the time of year and the species of Tuna you are targeting. There is always a good heard of Tuna in these waters which offer the opportunity to either troll, chuck big poppers or vertical jig fish.
If you choose to inshore fish then the species on offer include Roosters, Jacks, Barracuda and Cubera Snappers. All of these fish will either take baits or lures so the style of fishing is entirely up to you. The average sized Rooster is around 20lb but there is a good chance of a trophy fish exceeding 50lb. Jacks average around 10lb and these little fish will give you hours of fun.
The boats at Palma de Cortez range from 28’ or 32’ offshore fishing boats to the more personal inshore Pangas which are 23’ or 25’. All our boats come with VHF radios, live bait wells, ice chests, sunshades and all trolling and bait fishing equipment.
