We were so excited to try different fishing styles in San Pedro. My husband and daughter were excited to try and catch some bigger fish doing some deep sea fishing, however they got sea sick very quickly and it ruined the day. We also did some reef fishing, which was a little disappointing, but not the captains fault at all. Apparently when you go during a full moon, the fish aren’t as hungry during the day, since they feed more at night during this time. This is something we weren’t aware of. We might have timed our trip differently or maybe not booked as many fishing trips during our stay.

Went fishing with Captain Rogel Sanchez on Abril 29, 2022
We had a great day with lots of fish and only moderate winds. The captains work diligently to maintain sustainable practices and the fishery has prospered from reduced tourism during Covid. Adding San Pedro to my list of recurring stops.

This wasn't a fish focused trip for me, but I did catch a bone fish from shore behind our resort with plastic grub. The wind was up most of the trip, so that made sight fishing difficult. There were lots of snapper around from shore around the resort's pier and by boat. They were taking plastics and sardines.

Went fishing with Nano Guerrero on Junio 1, 2019
We fished spinning gear and I brought my own. If you fish with Nano you dont have to bring spinners, I left him 2 brand new set ups. Seems like alot of people fly fish for bonefish here. I dont know anything about that. But you would have had alot of opportunities

Well the sharks would eat your tuna or whatever you’re fishing for before you could real the fish in.

Making it threw the reef channel can be quite rough, but the remainder of the trip was well worth it.

Good. Take your motion sickness pills! Two of our guys didn't and they got sick. Messed up the trip for the rest of us!

If new to fly fishing in salt water do your homework. It's not the same as fishing for trout or salmon but that's also what makes it interesting.

Book a big enough boat for the expected conditions. A 26 foot open boat would make for a less enjoyable trip in anything but calm seas. The “dry boat” was a good choice.

Lots of fish around to try either reef fishing for fun with the Kids, or deep water fishing.

If you want to go to the reef make sure those with weak stomachs take Dramamine
