Fishing out of Puerto Jimenez

Puerto-Jimenez-fishing-in-shore-fishingThe Golfo Dulce and nearby Pacific Ocean are a world class fishery. Whether it's inshore, offshore or both, you won't be disappointed with the quality of fishing. Inshore fishing takes place in the gulf and coastal waters outside the gulf. Awesome fishing is literally at your front door. Although Roosterfish are the primary target, there are a number of other species to be caught. A variety of Snapper are available, including 40 plus pound Cuberas, Jacks of all kinds, Barracuda, and Mackerel to name a few.

Whether it’s slow trolling live bait, bottom fishing, jigging or casting poppers, you will be sure to have a bent rod and a sweat on. Offshore fishing can be as close as the mouth of the gulf (10 miles from Puerto Jimenez), depending on where the “blue water” is. Fish can almost always be found within 10 miles. Sailfish are plentiful, but there is always the chance of an interruption from a Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo or Dorado (Mahi-Mahi or Dolphin fish). These species can also be targeted if you are looking for table fare, but all billfish are released. The potential for 15 to 20 fish days is not uncommon with 5 to 10 sailfish releases being the norm.

Puerto-Jimenez-fishing-in-shore-fishA fishing lodge running 10 to 20 boats needs to be tightly structured. You fish on lodge time schedules. Running a single boat charter allows us to design a trip especially for you and your guests. The fishing day will be tailored to your liking. Hard-core anglers can choose to be the first on the water or the last to come in. For those wanting a more relaxed day, we can start whenever you make it down to the boat.

You will hear stories of captains detouring people from fishing inshore, or not willing to change methods or locations when the fishing is slow. My goal is to fish for what you want to catch, and use my experience in all areas to put you on action throughout the day. I am very much a member of the “no yelling” school of guiding. My goal is to make your trip productive and fun. At trip end my hope is that your expectations have been exceeded, you have a smile on your face, tired arms, and some knowledge to have improved your fishing skill.
