Charly Fleet - Super Panga
Charly Fleet offer great value half and full day trips out of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, targeting awesome pelagic species such as Blue, White, and Striped Marlin, Bluefin Tuna, Sailfish, and Mahi Mahi.
You will be going out on the “Silvia 1”, a 23 ft Super Panga freshly restored in 2016 and powered by a reliable 75HP Suzuki engine up to a top speed of 23 knots. She comes equipped with GPS, a livewell, fighting chair, and everything you will need for a great day on the water. She also features a toilet for extra convenience on those longer trips.
The fishing aboard the “Silvia 1 is some of the best fun and best value around, with unbeatable rates and a some great species to fish for. Captain Walter specialises in using lures on light tackle, but on longer trips you will also be supplied with live bait, and can choose to purchase some for the half day trip too if you want to. The full day trip also comes with fishing licences, fly fishing equipment, beer, and soft drinks, making it a deal you’d be crazy to turn down!

Your information on this charter company is completely out of date. First, Walter Widmer hasn’t worked there in a long time. Your new contact is Jorge Toscano 1.624.355.4672. Because your info was incorrect, they had no idea who I was. There was no reservation in my name. I just showed up and there was an opening. And they know very little about fly fishing. Nothing, really. They have no gear (I had my own) and the captain had never fly fished in his life. To his credit, he was cordial and helpful, but it was 2 hours before I got a line wet. They wanted to troll four rods, not fly fish. Overall, it was a good day on the water and I caught one fish, but the charter is not as advertised. Not even close.

The captain was very nice and our 1st mate was his 11 year old grandson that slept some of the trip. He was a great kid but he did not do much. I knew the boat was small but I never expected that it would not have a ship to shore radio. When exiting the harbor I asked the capt said where his radio & life jackets were but the radio was not there because it was being repaired. There were white caps and I am an experienced boater but I know you do not go out without a radio and for that reason I was not able to relax. I actually ended the trip early because the capt started heading further away from shore. We did catch 3 skip jacks but I was nervous the entire time.

Booked our trip online. Had to call and wake up the captain the morning of the trip. They had me down for a half day. I presented my online receipt for a full day and they located another captain. He was good but the mate was terrible. He missed gaffing my first ,quite large, Dorado with the gaff 5 times until the fish broke the line. I should have gaffed it myself. The mate was also extremely slow in setting a baited rig (20 mins) each time.Then half way through the full day trip we began to return to port. I had to get on the phone with the owner in a not so nice discussion to straighten out the trip duration for a second time!! We lost 1 hour of fishing due to this….WTF? DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS GROUP. Their management and mate were worse than bad. The captain deserves to work with a better fleet.
