Most of the fly fishing in Isla Mujeres is blue water fly fishing where Sailfish, Marlin and Dorados are the main target. Expert captain Anthony Mendillo has been fishing these waters for years and is the man to see when it comes to fly fishing for Isla Mujeres Bill fish.
There is also a little lagoon at Isla Mujeres called “the Makax Lagoon” but your fly fishing options are very limited there. Within an hour you’ve gone around the whole lagoon so for you that want to fish light tackle in Isla Mujeres or do some serious fly fishing for Tarpon, Snook, Bonefish and Permit you’re better off to do so at the lagoons of Cancun and Isla Blanca. Most of the Isla Mujeres fishing is done offshore and there are boats available from a few hundred dollars to luxurious yachts which can go for as much as a few thousand dollars.

Light tackle fishing in Isla Mujeres is considered done in Blue water and is basically casting for offshore species like Sailfish, Bonitos, Dorados and Barracudas. Most of the time 20lbs braided line or mono is the lightest they go for these species. Isla Blanca and Cancun are more suitable for light tackle fishing with let’s say 10 pound test line.
