PV Hook Up – 35' Cabo "Sophia"

If you happen to spend your next vacation in Puerto Vallarta, fish the Banderas Bay and beyond, PV Hook Up charter company is an excellent choice.

This family-friendly company operates a fleet of fishing machines and a 35’ Cabo ‘Sophia’ is one of them. She is a well-equipped yacht with two 425 HP Caterpillar engines, top-notch navigational electronics, fishfinding gear, and all the comforts of home. The Sophia features a sleeping area, a private restroom, an air-conditioned cabin, and plenty of space for up to 8 anglers.

Once on board, you will find a selection of lures, professional accessories, and rods and reels by Tiburon and Calstar. The Sophia is outfitted with tuna tubes, livewell, outriggers, a fighting chair, and a flybridge to spot top-water feeders. She is operated by Captain Freddy Rodriguez, a well-known angler who has won many international Marlin and Tuna tournaments and competitions.
