Barrilete and Captain Jorge Fernandez believe you deserve nothing but the very best. They offer all sorts of trips for any breed of anglers, from a couple of hours pulling up something tasty to a full offshore extravaganza.

Capt. Jorge operates a 28’ fishing machine built by Game Fisher in 2008. This fast boat comes powered by twin 115 HP Yamaha engines and has plenty of space for up to 4 guests, the captain, and his deckhand.

The vessel is well-equipped for a productive day on the water. It features a small toilet, 2 coolers, top-notch electronics, and a livewell loaded with bait. On your day out, it will be equipped with quality rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait suitable for your type of fishing.

Barrilete departs from the Herradura Bay and heads out to the most productive spots and honey holes in the area. You will be able to explore the waters along the coast or 25 miles offshore and even head up to 40 miles out if necessary.


Your techniques for the day will vary from light and heavy tackle fishing to trolling, jigging, spinning, bottom fishing, and popping. With Sailfish, Marlin, Snapper, Tuna, Grouper, and Mahi Mahi all among the popular catches, it’s hard to resist a trip or two!

The crew will cover your fishing licenses and pack some snacks or light lunch. Shorter trips include pineapples and watermelons, while the longer ones will have sandwiches on board. Plus, all keeper fish will be cleaned at the end of the day to get your dinners sorted out!
