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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
