Whether it’s exploring the inshore waters for some Reds or Specks, or the chase further out to get Kings, Grouper, and Snapper, SPI Fish Killer Charters has you covered.
You will be fishing alongside Paco Hinjosa, a local fishing guide around these fisheries. He knows where the fish are and what technique to use to make the most out of your trip. Paco will take you to hot spots in search of prime fish of the area. You will get to try a variety of techniques, depending on the fish you want to target.

The boat features plenty of space to fish safely with comfort. It’s all about a smooth and safe ride.

When fishing around the bay, you can try drifting, wade fishing, structure, top water, or going after bottom fish, using either artificial lures or bait, depending on what works better on the selected day. You can expect to get Red Drum, Snook, Flounder, and Speckled Trout.
Further out, you can try trolling for Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack or go bottom fishing for Red Snapper, Grouper or Tripletail.
Make sure to bring a valid fishing license, snacks and drinks. All the tackle, bait, and ice are supplied, as are the rods and lures. You will get your catch cleaned, and can later have a tasty meal.

Trip was awesome. We went out on the clock. Captain was ready to go, went out directly to the good spot. Bait was of great quality (a bit short but we were going through them like candy). Super friendly and funny, he understands we are going for a good time (some captains get a bit upset if you don’t know how to cast etc., Paco took the time to teach the less experienced ones).
Overall, if you want to go have a great time while actually fishing, book this one.
As a plus, he is fully bilingual. Speaks Spanish if you are visiting from Spanish speaking countries or English equally good.
If I ever go back to SPIsland, I’ll definitely try to book Paco. We almost hit our limit!

He put me on the fish and I had a blast! Came in with beautiful fish, and felt like I had spent the day with a great friend. Highly recommended and I’ll be sharing Captain Paco’s info with all my friends!
