El Campeón Fishing Charters

El Campeón Fishing Charters invites you for a day of fishing in the amazing waters of Puerto Vallarta in Mexico. Captain Jaime Agustin Carrillo Lopes will take you to some of the most popular parts of this fishery where you can try your hand at landing some very exciting fish species.

His boat, the El Campeón, is a 24’ panga that runs on a 90 HP Mercury engine. It’s outfitted with a GPS unit, portable toilet, and a fighting chair for when you’re up against a big fish. This boat is actually the trophy winner of the international tournament in Puerto Vallarta, so you know you’re in good hands while on board.

When it comes to the fishing itself, there’s so much to like here! From Mahi Mahi and Jack Crevalle to Tuna, Marlin, and Sailfish, you’ll have a lot of different fish species to set your sights on. There’s something going on all year long in Puerto Vallarta, so don’t worry about missing out on the action.

The El Campeón crew will provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for the trip. With a number of different trip packages available, they always try to tailor each trip to their guests’ needs. In order to stay comfortable throughout the day, be sure to bring a pair of sunglasses and some sunscreen. See you on the waves!
