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.Request Pricing and Dates

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.
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!
