About Loreto Mexico Fishing - Loreto has a reputation as an excellent point for sport fishing. This is its main tourist attraction and the main source for jobs.
It has two well-know fishing seasons:
Summer, distinguished by the “dorado” and other species like marlin (black marlin, Atlantic blue marlin and striped marlin) and sailfish, ideal for the fly fishing techniques; Additionally to the seasonal species, Loreto's waters are home of other species like snapper and seabass, which are found all year long. Thanks to this abundance, Loreto has been home of several IGFA records. The two “foundations” of the Loreto’s sport fishing are the “dorado” and the “yellow tail” (Seriola lalandi dorsalis).
Winter, distinguished by the “yellow tail” (jurel) and other species that usually are deep in the sea rocks.
The dorado is the emblematic species of Loreto, it likes the warm waters, and its season begins in late May, peaks from July to September, and comes to an end in November.
