Fishnado Charters – 26'

Bahia de Banderas is one of the hottest bays in the world for coastal fishing. Fishnado knows that well – they’re local pros – and they’re more than happy to combine their premier service with this amazing fishery.

The crew invites you to join them onboard their 26’ Luhrs boat. You can bring 3 of your fishing buddies with you, the vessel can handle 4 anglers and the captain. It’s powered by twin 230 HP Yanmar turbo motors to take you out to the fishing grounds, fast.

You’ll be on top of the fish in no time, with the best fishing grounds being between 10 and 30 minutes away from the dock. The Bay is home to a wide range of species. Flex your fishing muscles and target Amberjack or Jack Crevalle on light tackle. Trolling for speedy predators like Barracuda or Mahi Mahi is excellent if you want to soak in the views.

If you want to take a break from reeling them in, take a dip in the pearlescent waters of the Bay. If you want to spice things up, you can do spearfishing – going after fish in their habitat is a thrill that’s hard to beat! All the equipment is provided and you don’t need any previous experience, everything is taken care of.

Kids – aged 2 and up – are more than welcome on board. Getting first-timers hooked on saltwater angling is a specialty of Fishnado’s crew. They’re experienced in teaching their customers how to fish, so you won’t just walk away with a cooler full of fish, you’ll walk away with valuable knowledge, too.

What are you waiting for? Book a trip with Fishnado and plot a course for your new favorite fishing destination.

We provide the total fishing experience and put out extra effort for our customers. Fishnado's captains have been fishing up and down these waters for more than two and a half decades now. Their offer is fully customizable and they're keen on finding the best combo of fishing that matches your tastes and skill levels. They'll work very hard to keep you reeling in and if the bite slows down the fun won't skip a beat! During high season, the manufacturer of the boat may vary, although amenities and team will always stay the same. You'll have a great day with the crew from Fishnado!

Beatiful morning catching Spanish mackerel, skip jack and lots of albacore.  Plenty of action to keep things interesting...
