Located in beautiful San Carlos, Mexico, this charter offers a variety of fishing trips for every type of guest – from all you hardened fishermen out there, to families with little ones just discovering their sea legs.

Yates En Renta San Carlos is proud to say that they have insider knowledge when it comes to the hottest fishing spots of San Carlos, thanks to the expert guidance of local angling aficionado Captain Ruben Gildardo Espinosa Solis. Capt. Ruben was born and raised here, and has been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod. Since 2005, he’s been using his years of knowledge and experience to show guests just what these plentiful waters have to offer.

You’ll be heading out on Capt. Ruben’s 27’ Tolicraft offshore sportfishing vessel, built to comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests. She’s decked out with top-notch navigational gear, life jackets for ages 8+, a private bathroom, and plenty of room for relaxation in between bites. There are outriggers to help you cover more ground when trolling, and a fighting chair for all you hardcore anglers out there!

Speaking of trolling, this is your captain’s preferred technique when it comes to hooking huge big game species. You’ll be going after Mahi Mahi, Bluefin Tuna, Sailfish, and a variety of mighty Marlin species. If you want to mix up your angling action, you can also spin, bottom fish, drift fish, and jig for your catch. Don’t worry if you’ve never tried these before – Capt. Ruben will show you the ropes!

As well as top-notch rods, reels, and tackle, your trip includes snorkeling gear to explore these waters from a different angle. Capt. Ruben will make sure you’re treated to local-style snacks and drinks, too. Come aboard Yates En Renta San Carlos for an incredible angling adventure!

"I am Aquaman and I love the ocean!" Captain Ruben Gildardo is a local fishing fanatic who was born and raised in beautiful San Carlos, so it's safe to say he knows these waters like the back of his hand! He used to fish alone until his friends and family suggested making a living out of something he loves doing. Thanks to them, he started running charters in 2005 and has been enjoying these waters with guests ever since. As well as sharing his local knowledge with anglers from all over the world, he also shows off his skills by taking part in local tournaments.
