The Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California, is one of the world’s great big-game fish destinations. Known for its great diversity of species, anglers will have a chance at a number of once in a lifetime trophies. Striped marlin, sailfish, yellowfin tuna, dorado, skipjack tuna, wahoo and bonito are all commonly encountered when fishing the offshore waters. Not to mention the giant blue and black marlin that also roam the Sea of Cortez. And although the offshore action is enough to keep some anglers busy for a lifetime, Baja’s inshore and beach fishing is a fly-rodder’s paradise! On the inshore and beach, you’ll find good numbers of Jacks, ladyfish, sierra mackerel, snappers, pompano, yellowtail, and the ultimate prize, the roosterfish. All of these species can be caught from a boat or directly from the beach. The waters of the East Cape provide a unique and challenging fly-fishing environment you won’t find anywhere else on Earth.
