10. Are trips available year round?
Yes, although some of our hunting trips do have seasons that are regulated by the Mexican government. Each of our fishing destinations have fish that can be caught year round. The species may vary with time of year but there are always plenty of catch available. Certain areas are more weather friendly than others during certain months of the year. Some Baja fishing destinations have migratory species; some have resident fish, and others have a combination of both throughout the year. But rest assured our guides know how and when to fish. We catch fish in places and at times that nobody else does….experience does help! Let us show you ours.
