Mag Bay, Mexico: Marlin & Roosterfish on the Fly

Join us November 17th-24th, 2023

This is a trip that is almost impossible to describe and feel like you've done it justice. This has to be the most visual, fast paced, exciting, adrenaline packed fishing trip out there! You're sight fishing to striped marlin on bait balls of mackerel and sardines that migrate through the area from October through December. Its a very short season, but it makes up for it with how much punch it packs in a such a short time frame. There's NO trolling, NO bait and switch, its all sight fishing to free swimming marlin that are on these naturally occurring migrating balls of bait. Birds are diving, seals circle grabbing ever fish they can, and then you see marlin are blowing up through the balled up schools of bait! If that doesn't get your hear rate going, I'm not sure what will, other than having one of these lit of 7' long fish with a sword on its face chase your fly to the tip of your rod boatside!


Mag Bay

Magdalena Bay is on the west coast of Baja California Sur. The 31 mile wide bay is protected from the Pacific Ocean by a large island chain. This buffer from the Pacific creates a haven, & consequently, a vastly diverse inshore, ecosystem.

Striped Marlin are the headliners of the Offshore show, but shots at Mahi Mahi, Sailfish and even Wahoo are all possible. These fish are targeted by spotting and chasing birds diving on the mackerel and sardine bait balls that migrate through this are at this time of year. Its all sight fishing and sight casting. No trolling, its sight fishing on steroids with a shot of adrenaline!

Inshore Fishing:


Inshore opportunities in Mag Bay are incredibly diverse. The rooster fish population along the Beaches is healthy and can provide anglers amazing chances for these bucket list fish.

The extensive mangrove systems provide anglers opportunities to drift with the drift casting to mangroves and cover in search of Golden trevally, snook, grouper, snapper, even halibut and many more.
