Quintana Roo is one of those places everyone’s always jealous of: sandy beaches, tropical trees, and excellent bluewater fishing right on your doorstep. Your captain looks forward to showing you just why this reputation is well-earned!
You’ll embark on your angling adventure on board a 23’ Mako. She’s a center console, perfectly suited to the nearshore and offshore waters just off the coast of Playa Del Carmen. The onboard outriggers and downriggers will give you an edge when trolling since you can wet more lines at the same time. Once you get a strike, make sure to strap in the fighting chair, the fish you’ll target with the crew will test your skill and muscles.
Kids can have a lot of fun bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper just a few miles away from the coast. If you’re looking to reel in a pelagic predator you’re in luck – you’ll be going after them a bit further out. Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Wahoo, Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin can all be targeted, when in season. If you’re looking for a workout you can also hook up Amberjack, one of the toughest fighters pound-for-pound.
The Rusty Hook is a small family-owened company and they’re happy to provide you with a friendly and professional service, whether you’re a novice or a seasoned angler.
