Step aboard with Team Margarita Sportfishing for the experience of a lifetime in the Gulf of California. These warm waters make an excellent home for huge Billfish and many exotic and delicious species. With the help of the crew, you’ll reel in some of the biggest and most exciting fish around. With experience fishing all over the Americas, these guys know what they’re talking about.

You’ll head offshore aboard the Margarita V, a classic 28’ Uniflite offshore sport fisher boat. With plenty of space for 6 guests, you’re in for an exciting day out with your loved ones. She has enough cover to shield you from the blistering sun and comes fitted with a functioning toilet, so all your needs are catered to. Expect to hit the sweet spots in no time thanks to the twin 140 HP Volvo engines on board, and get your fish on!

San Carlos is known for its fishing and diving, and you’ll get to see why. Barely a mile offshore you’ll already find beautiful Sailfish and monumental Marlin. These beasts will take all your strength to get on board but must be released back into the ocean. You’ll get your reward, though. Tag the fish and submit a form to the Billfish Foundation to receive a certificate to show off to your friends.

If you prefer your reward in the form of a hearty meal, there are plenty of delicious fish to target, too. Mahi Mahi will be biting when you’re trolling for Billfish. You can also try your hand at bottom fishing for exotic Groupers, Snappers, as well as Yellowtails. They’ll be kept on ice and then cleaned and prepared for you to take to a restaurant near the dock to have it cooked. Round off your day in true style.

Team Margarita Sportfishing is here to make your fishing dreams come true. Whatever you want, they’ve got you covered. You won’t find such plentiful waters so close to shore anywhere else, so the crew invites you aboard for a once in a lifetime opportunity. You don’t want to miss it!

    Spend your morning going after some exciting and powerful Billfish. You won't need to go too far to reach some huge Marlin and Sailfish – every angler's dream catch. All Billfish will be released back into the sea, but you'll have the chance to target some delicious species to take back to shore. Go after Mahi Mahi, Snappers, Groupers, and Amberjacks, to not end the morning empty-handed.

    A full day on the water will give you the best chance of reeling in a huge Billfish. You'll still need to use all your strength and skill to get a huge Sailfish or Marlin on the boat. These fish will be released back into their habitat, but you can still go after plenty of delicious and exciting fish to take back to shore. You can bottom fish for Snappers and Groupers, or troll for Tuna and Mahi Mahi.

About the Captain

Bryan Lee Replogle

Response time within an hour
Member since November 2018
Bryan began running charters in 2007, turning his passion into a full-time profession. He loves being on the water and helping others catch fish and enjoy the Sea of Cortez. He owns the Margarita V, and usually works all trips along with a local captain. He has fished the area for over 40 years and is widely known as a top fisherman in the area. With multiple tournament wins, Bryan knows how to catch fish. He prefers to go after sustainable fish populations, but will bottomfish if need be. Billfish are often found with the Dorado and Bryan will have one, or two, bait-and-switched before you know what is going on. All billfish are released. All eating fish will be fully cleaned, and smoked and vacuum-sealed if you desire. Excellent jigging gear is available and a Rapala sponsorship keeps us well stocked with trolling gear. We always purchase ample ballyhoo.. Bryan's father likes to supply him with a lot of custom rods. We will never hesitate to return and accommodate seasick passengers.
