Fishing? Go surfing first

As in everything else, timing on the Baja fishing circuit is everything. This site can get you up to date on what's biting where and when so that you'll greatly improve your chances of returning with trophy photos and bulging coolers of filets. For the big picture, click on "Seasonal Charts" for a color-coded table that shows the most productive months for each species. "Fish Reports" surveys the most recent catches of local charter companies so you know where the hottest action is. Weather is another huge factor in Baja, and there's a link to conditions at each hot spot. may not cover all the bases but it gives you a real shot at ending up in their photo gallery, sunburned, grinning and reeking of fish.
