Trip Page: Loreto Baja Mexico Kayak Fishing

Loreto in Baja California, Mexico

Loreto offers desert beauty with un-beatable kayak and panga fishing. The town is quaint, just the right size to get away from the demands of modern life. World-class fishing is available almost year round. With warm water, warm weather and epic fishing conditions, it is no wonder that Loreto is one of Fish Village’s most popular destinations.

You’ll have 3 days of kayak fishing in Hobie fishing kayaks with panga support targeting some of Mexico’s finest sport fish. Anglers will never get sick of the yellowtail tug while also taking in all of the beauty that Loreto has to offer. You will be mothership’d via panga to various fishing hot spots giving you the best chance to land trophy fish. You can mix it up between panga fishing and kayak fishing or fish exclusively out of a panga if you prefer.

Trip includes round trip transportation to/from Loreto International Airport, hotel stay at La Mision, three (3) days of kayak fishing with panga support, meals while fishing, fishing licenses, daily marine park pass and fishing gear.

A maximum of four (4) anglers per trip for kayak fishing. We can accommodate larger groups for dedicated panga fishing.

Refund Policy

We do not issue refunds for last minute cancellations. We will reschedule trips if we are given advance notice (within 2 weeks of departure date). We will attempt to reschedule within a six (6) month window.

High Season

The high season stretches from November – mid May which brings excellent fishing, good weather and a slight increase in cost. When many places across North America are freezing, Loreto stands at the ready with warm water and beaches.

Low Season

The low season stands between mid May – Oct. Warmer days with excellent fishing and slightly lower prices makes this an ideal time to sneak in an extra day and spend more time exploring plus more fishing of course.

Rods and reels are included in all packages that we sell. You only need to bring your own terminal tackle such as hooks, weights, jigs and leader line. If you want to bring your own tackle, here is what we suggest.

Live Bait Setup

We fish a Shimano Trinidad 20 star drag reel paired with a stout Shimano Terez 6’6 ft. rod built for 100-200 lb braid. Our reel is loaded with 80 lb braid and a 50 ft 60 lb mono topshot.

Suggested Specs

Drag: 25 lbs +
Backing: 65 lbs +
Topshot: 60 lbs mono +
Leader: 40 lbs +

Fish Village Tip: Pre-make multiple 5 ft 40 or 50 lb fluoro leaders with a barrel swivel on on end and a 3/0 hook on the other end. We use Owner Flyliner 3/0 hooks for our setups. Pack each pre-made leader in Ziploc.

Catching Bait (Setup)

We fish a Shimano Saragosa 6000 spinning reel with 50 lb braid and 3 ft 40 lb fluoro leader paired with an inshore spinning fishing rod. You will need enough power to yoke in 5-10 lb skipjack tuna and blue runners.

Jigging Setup

We fish a Shimano Saragosa 8000 spinning setup paired with a Shimano Tremar jigging rods built for 80-150 lb braid. Our reel is loaded with 65 lb braid topped with a 5-7 ft 60 lb fluoro leader.

Suggested Specs

Drag: 25 lbs +
Backing: 60 lbs +
Leader: 60 lbs +

Plan on bringing heavy jigs 200-300 grams for fast moving currents and smaller jigs for shallower water and slower drop rates 80-150 grams. If you do not trust your jig hooks, upgrade before you head down. Flutter jigs, flat falls, slow jigs, knife jigs, heavy yo/yo irons all work well.

Popping/Surface Setup

We fish a Shimano Saragosa 10000 spinning setup paired with a stout Shimano Terez 7’0 ft. rod built for 100-200 lb braid. Our reel is loaded with 80 lb braid topped with a 5-7 ft 60-80 lb fluoro leader.

Suggested Specs

Drag: 30 lbs +
Backing: 80 lbs +
Leader: 60 lbs +

We use Halco 135 and 160 sized poppers and Salas 7X surface irons. Large surface lures will work great there. Mackerel patterns and sardine patterns work well.
