As a country with warm tropical weather, El Salvador has two seasons: a dry season and a rainy season. The dry season lasts from November to April and most of the time is related to small tides and swells, clear water, some windy mornings, and awesome sunsets. Rainy season lasts from the beginning of May up to the first week of November, signaling the official start of one of the best fishing periods! Inshore and offshore fishing is great once the dry season starts.
February & March: Inshore fishing is best at this time due to wind speeds. Catch big rooster, snook, snapper, mackerel, and more!
April: The winds quiet down, and big schools of peanut dolphin (mahi-mahi) and blue marlins come close to the shore.
May-August: Deep sea fishing is in season for catching marlin, YFT, sailfish, and mahi-mahi. The ocean is mostly flat at this time.
September-October: Our rainiest months, but fishing is still possible most of the time.
November: Deep sea fishing is at the height of the season.
December: The wind begins to pick up, but it can be great for bill-fishing and trying other pelagic species.
