One of the benefits of living or vacationing by the ocean is the ability to catch your dinner! Whether you are an avid fisherman or a novice with a surf rod on the shore, the fishing at Casa Rodriguez is spectacular, to say the least. Located directly on the beach by El Cardonal, the plunder of the Sea of Cortez is yours if you are up for the challenge. The area is known for world-class sportfishing and big game, especially when you’re offshore!
Vicente is the grounds keeper for Casa Rodriguez in El Cardonal, but he is the area’s best captain who grew up fishing the waters of the East Cape. A day out on the boat with him as your guide, you are sure to come back with plenty of fresh fish for dinner and most likely lunch too! Typically larger fish stay out in deeper waters, but you won’t lose any time heading offshore because in the Baja the deep blue is only one to four miles from the beach. Your gear, fuel, and of course your captain will be at your disposal for $350 USD for a half day outing, and $400 USD for a full day. (Cash only, gratuity is appreciated) Fishing on a kayak directly from the house has yielded many guests some great catches. Fishing from the shore is fantastic as well.
With your line in the water you will have the opportunity to wrestle the massive big fish the East Cape is known for, so be prepared for the workout. They put up a good fight! From December to March, you will most likely find some mahi-mahi, marlin, and tuna, but the deep waters are a bit cool. This is the time of year for inshore fishing, where the shallower waters are warmer. It’s highly likely you will be having one of these middleweight fish for dinner: seabass, snapper, sierra, bonito, skipjack, Crevalle jack and possibly roosterfish or yellowtail.
