Resting 50 nautical miles south of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, the remote fishing village of Puerto Vicente is a hidden gem, known to locals as an offshore fishing paradise. But, the inshore fishing for roosterfish is incredible as well! This Mexico sailfish lodge is easy to get to, but tucked away from the crowds and traffic of Mexico’s booming tourist destinations.

Don’t expect strip malls or luxury spas here. You need to remember, that first and foremost, this is a fishing trip. This section of the Costa Grande, Mexico has pristine beaches, litter-free coastlines and friendly, welcoming people who aren’t caught up in the hustle of daily city life. But of course, the main attraction is the Mexico sailfish fishing, or if you’re like me, the roosterfish. When we go, we like to mix up our trip with a few days of offshore fishing and a day or two inshore going after roosterfish.

  • If you’re going offshore for sailfish, you’ll be surprised that you’ll be fishing just a mile or two from shore.

  • Inshore species found in these waters include: Roosterfish; Jacks; Spanish Mackerel; and Snook.

Offshore Fishing the costa grande in Mexico

You’ll be surprised to be fishing within a few miles of shore, within sight of the mountains.

In fact, good Pelagic fishing can be had only one mile off the shore from the lodge. This is because the Sierra Madre Mountains that run along Costa Grande extend into the ocean and then immediately drop off, creating deep waters that provide the perfect habitat for migratory trophy fish. In fact, this remote section of the Costa Grande is ranked #2 in the World for Sailfishing by Sport Fishing Magazine.

Offshore species found in these waters include: Pacific sailfish; Black marlin; Dorado (Mahi-mahi); Yellowfin Tuna; and Wahoo.

Despite all this great angling, you’ll probably be the only boat on the water when you fish with us. Due to the distance, the big chartered fishing vessels from Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo don’t fish here on a regular basis. And without the crowds, you’ll have a much more relaxed Mexico fishing vacation.

Inshore Fishing

Roosterfish are swiftly gaining popularity among anglers as a top-priority catch – and rightfully so.

These warm-water predators boast charisma and can reach weights exceeding 100 pounds (though those you’ll likely encounter fall within the 20-60 pound range). Found in shallow waters accessible from the beach or cruising pangas, hooking one is no simple feat, adding a formidable challenge that makes them highly sought after by any angler.

Roosters are rarely found in water deeper than 60 feet, cruising the sandy beaches in search of baitfish species such as sardines (and mullet for the larger roosters). Since they are found inshore, you’ll be in calmer waters, making inshore fishing a great option for people who are prone to getting sea sick. In addition to Roosters, you could also catch a number of different species including: Jacks; Spanish Mackerel; Snook; Needlefish and more…

Landing a big roosterfish is no small feat. It takes determination, stamina, strength, and also a little know-how. But your guide will help you along the way. Be prepared to be amazed by the speed at which these fish move. Trust us, it’s fun!

  1. Cory G.

    A super cool trip if you like to fish and don’t like to be around tons of other people at a resort. We caught sailfish, dorado, bonito and had our chances at roosterfish inshore. We really liked our guides. Even though they didn’t speak any English, we were able to muster up a mix of Spanglish and Charades to ask questions, have some laughs. If your spouse likes to fish too, take them with you. Viva Mexico!

    Hands down the best charter fishing I’ve ever experienced in Mexico.

  3. Patrick Kissel

    We were fortunate to put together a great group of anglers and friends to host down in old Mexico. We will be back!

  4. Lacey Savage

    I highly recommend this lodge to all my fishy and not so fishy friends out there. I can promise you, you will not be disappointed!

  5. Tashua Seaton

    As I sit in Northern Idaho looking at snow, I’m very thankful for this trip. We made many new friends and enough memories to last a lifetime! The tan is a nice bonus. Can’t wait to go back!

  6. Matt Pember

    In four days on the water, we caught 8 great sized sailfish, 6 dorados (4 of which were monsters), 3 roosterfish in the 30-50 pounds range, and a smattering of bonito and other fish. One day the reel would not stop going off – 8 fish. I’ve fished for billfish in Venezuela and Cape Verde and this was easily the best day I’ve ever had pelagic fishing. I would highly recommend this trip for couples or groups of friends, or anyone who wants to have a few good days on the water bill fishing.

    The trip of a lifetime! The food prepared for every meal was amazing! You get back from fishing and you have fresh homemade tortilla chips waiting, along with fresh guacamole and salsa! Everyday we were landing nice Dorado and sailfish with our group! The guides work so hard and love what they do! As a guide myself, I truly appreciated how hard they worked to get us on fish! The lodge staff was very friendly and accommodating! The lodge itself was also amazing! Patrick did an amazing job hosting this trip and organizing it. The group we went with was the most amazing group I’ve ever travelled with. This was my first time booking with outdoors international, and it will not be the last! As soon as I got home I’ve already been trying to plan another trip for this year! Thank you so much outdoors international for providing us with this opportunity! Looking forward to doing more business with you.

    We had a great time in Mexico! The beds were a little uncomfortable but the amazing fishing made up for it. We are already planning our next trip.

  9. J.P.

    I only give this trip four stars because the bedrooms could be spruced up just a bit. The fishing however was incredible. The lodge is great and the staff did a wonderful job.

  10. Jennifer Mavencamp

    We had an incredible time fishing in Mexico and can’t wait to go back!

  11. Cory G.

    I went again this year, and the fishing was even better! Incredible trip, especially for the money.

There's a reason I keep booking this steelhead fishing trip!
Second time I’ve done this particular trip. The steelhead run was awesome! The food was even better than the first time, which is hard to imagine, and our guide is the best there is! If catching big fish is your thing I highly recommend booking through Outdoors International.

I expected big trout on this trip based on all the stories I've read over the years, and I was not disappointed! I broke my own personal best rainbow trout record at least SIX times on this trip, with the biggest being a 16 pound beauty.

I will be going again soon!
