for every fish, there is a season—
and a reason to go Zihua!

This is what the seasons will bring when you go fishing with Santiago or Adan:

winter (november–mid february)
It’s all about the sailfish. There will be dorado, and inshore species to go after too, but if you try to suggest fishing inshore or things of that nature Santiago will roll his eyes and wonder “why me?” Sailfish is the ticket.

spring (late february–april)
Add blue marlin to the sailfish, and some more dorado. This is also the most important period for large yellowfin tuna. If your arms get really tired you can always go for bonito and jacks one day.

summer (may—august)
The sailfish continues to deliver. Dorado is now present in maximum numbers. Roosterfish can now be found reliably along the beaches. The yellowfin is still around sometime into June, blue marlin into July. July and August can get rainy, although everything is relative.

fall (september–october)
The rainy season continues, and the most interesting proposition next to sailfish is roosterfish, which can be very good at this time.
