Rancho Leonero Guide Staff and Fishing Program:
The fishing at Rancho Leonero is by far the most popular activity. It is suitable for both fly and conventional anglers. There are several distinct venues. The most popular fishing platform is the diesel-powered fly bridge cruiser. The fleet consists of various vessels from 28’ to 32’. Equipment includes bimini tops, bait tanks, plumbed heads, fighting chairs and a mate. These boats are well suited to offshore billfishing as well as inshore fishing. Rancho Leonero also has a large fleet of center counsel 23-25 ft. super pangas with collapsible sun canopies, bait tanks and chairs. These pangas are suitable for offshore billfishing as well as inshore fishing but there is no mate on board and only a few have a head on board. Lastly, anglers also fish from the lodge rental kayaks (complete with rod holders) and from the beach.
Target species include striped marlin, rooster fish, tuna, sierra, pompano, pargo, cabrilla and assorted bottom fish.
