Punta Mita is home to some of the world’s most explosive inshore fishing action. Aggressive predators such as Cubera Snapper and Roosterfish readily attack poppers and stickbaits cast along the many sandy beaches and rocky coastlines. Fishing live baits in combination with this top water technique is also deadly in attracting explosive visual strikes. The avid top water angler should arrive with at least a half-dozen surface plugs.
World class offshore action is often to be enjoyed when fishing Corbetania and El banco. Monster Black and Blue Marlin, schools of Dorado, Sailfish and giant Yellowfin Tuna, feast in these bait-rich water of the Eastern Pacific.Punta Mita is a top angling destinations for giant Yellowfin Tuna — 200 to 300-pounders and larger. At Fortuna Sportfishing we specialize in catching Yellowfin Tuna on poppers although most of the big ones are caught on live bait.
