Maverick Sportfishing - Spanish Fly

Hooking a Marlin is hard enough. It takes patience, strength, and skill. Being able to reel in these deep sea game fish is the final test of the ability of an angler, and they are highly sought after for this reason. So imagine now being the only angler in the world to have caught an albino Marlin! Sounds completely fantastical right? So, let’s get back to being realistic… and offer you fishing trips with Maverick Charters, the fishing charter company that managed this extraordinary feat on March 11th 2014!

Not only will you be in the esteemed company of the crew who helped reel in the albino Blue Marlin, you will be on the exact boat that they used on that fateful trip too! They can’t promise that you too will see the 300 lb albino, which they released alive after the 2 hours and 45 minutes it took to reel her in. Captain Simon is quite confident that you will hook a sailfish, of regular pigmentation, on their trips.

Maverick Charters have released over 15,000 Billfish since they started building their fleet a dozen years ago. The boat you will be on, the Spanish Fly, spends about 250 days of the year out at sea. These guys take their boat building very seriously - after over 30,000 hours at sea, she hasn’t needed any construction or had any material related issues! You will have all navigational and safety equipment on board too, and with six anglers fishing on this beautiful 43’ custom-built Maverick, there will be plenty of space for you to battle the big game you’ll be targeting. 

You can also expect to fish Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Black, Striped, and Blue Marlin to name a few! You’ll be provided with snacks and drinks to keep you in comfort for the ride offshore, heading out 30 miles. You are welcome to bring more though! Although children are welcome, we wouldn’t recommend them on a longer trip.

All you need to do now is grab your fishing license and join Captain Simon on the water! He cannot wait to welcome you on board!
