Ready for an adventure of a lifetime? Join the skilled, local crew of Y-Knot Charters for an experience you’ll never forget! Captain Andrew Schirn is a passionate angler who’s favorite thing is seeing his customers smile after he puts them on the fish of their dreams.
The “Y-Knot” is a spacious 38’ Bertram offshore sport fishing boat offering plenty of space for up to 12 guests and lots of shade. This beauty features a restroom, freshwater shower, and easy access to the water thanks to a big diving ladder. It also boasts twin 270 Yanmar engines, a flybridge, beds, downriggers, a fighting chair, an ice-box, and top-notch marine electronics and safety gear.
The captain picks up customers at the yacht club. He explains all about safety, and after that, the trip can start. The captain likes to listen to what his customers want to do and try to make it happen.
West Bay is famous for deep sea fishing. You’ll get to enjoy the ride to the open ocean (up to 9 miles), where you’ll fish for pelagics such as Wahoo, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Barracuda, and more! You can stay close to land and fish the drop-off or, weather permitting, venture farther out to the legendary 12-Mile Bank.
You’ll be using a variety of fishing techniques, including bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and more. Trolling is the most common and customers take turns while fishing. If it’s reef fishing, 5–6 people can fish at the same time.
You’ll get to keep half of your catch, and when the trip is done, the captain cleans the fish for you to take home. The charter will cover the use of top-quality fishing gear, mostly by Penn. Snorkeling gear, lures, snacks, drinks, and licenses are also included.
You can rely on Y-Knot Charters for a heart-pumping, custom-tailored, and safe adventure out on the sweet-salty waters of magnificent Grand Cayman!
