Fishing in San Carlos is excellent. During
summer months, as the water
temperatures rise, the exotic
big game species are present, including
dorado (mahi-mahi) and tuna. With deep water only a few
miles off shore, even small boats can attempt to land the
Several sportfishing tournaments are held in San Carlos each year.
From late fall into spring, there is excellent bottom fishing in
the many islands and points in the area. Target species
snapper, sea trout, yellowtail and sea bass.
Charter boats are
available and the cost is reasonable for a full or half-day
of fishing. The charter boats are fairly well equipped
but if you are a serious fisherman, we suggest you bring
your own tackle. The local skippers and mates are most
eager to please and will even teach you if you're a
beginner at saltwater angling.
San Carlos also has charter boats available for sunset cruises or
tours of the area.

If you bring your own boat
to fish with, you will need individual fishing licenses. Boat permits
are no longer required. See the Fishing
Regulations page for information on sources and costs for licenses.
Please observe daily bag
limits and do practice catch and release.
