March heralds the start of the sport fishing season in the Mexican Caribbean.
Marlin and sailfish are moving through area waters; snapper; dorado, bonito and wahoo are plentiful and local fishermen will take you right to where the fish are running.
The best fishing grounds in the area lie to the east of Isla Mujeres, along the Arrowsmith Bank, around Contoy and Holbox islands, Puerto Morelos, and in the Cozumel Channel, the deep ocean trench between the Riviera Maya and the island of Cozumel.
The lagoons along the Quintana Roo coast offer a different challenge – they are rich in bonefish such as tarpon and snook and attract fly fishermen from all over the world.
Local marinas adhere to the catch and release policy to help conserve fish stocks and we invite you to join their campaign.  If you enjoy fishing and are looking for your own unforgettable encounter with the big fish of the sea, contact Thomas More Travel for fishing trips and boat charters.
