Acapulco has been known for its fantastic sport fishing for decades!

Acapulco fishing, though not as famous as many other Mexican resorts, is excellent. The same sport fish that are caught in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Zihuatanejo can be also found in Acapulco depending on the season. Some big game fish found in Acapulco are marlin, tuna and dorado. However, sport fishing has slowly taken a back seat to Acapulco's status as "Party Town", but the fishing here can still be incredible.

The waters off of Acapulco are teeming with good fishing possibilities such as marlin and sailfish. A fishing license costs $7 and can be obtained at the Secretaria de Pesca, but many companies will take care of it with timely reservations. Hotels and travel agents are fully equipped to book all fishing trips. The Boat Cooperative (Ph: 74/82-1099) across from the Zocalo manages to create order from all the offers made at the city dock. Arnold Brothers (Ph: 74/82-18-77) manages larger parties (up to five).

Acapulco fishing is know for it great Sailfish fishing who are noted for their fighting ability and often spend as much of the battle in the air as in the water and they are numerous throughout the year. The Pacific sailfish is almost twice the size of its Atlantic counterpart, reaching 10 feet and 200 pounds !!.
The fish has beautiful colors, and It´s silver and deep blue parts-with golden short Stripes and a dorsal fin with purplish/black spots, makes it the ideal Trophy! These present colors will fade quickly after capture. But are always recovered when doing a taxidermist to it. For those fishermen who prefer lighter tackle, there is also excellent small game fishing year-round for bonito, roosterfish, mahi-mahi & tuna, which school in large numbers. What you fancy Acapluco fishing has it all for the avid fisher person.
