Miss Behav’in Sportfishing

Miss Behav’in Sportfishing operates out of Los Suenos Marina in Herradura. Helmed by Captain Jeff Pursley, they offer awesome adventures both inshore and offshore. Besides Capt. Jeff, the boat is occasionally run by Capt. Haden, another seasoned captain eager to put you on fish. Spend the day fishing the river mouths and shallow rocks for Roosterfish, Jacks, and Snapper, or head offshore in search of Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and more. Fishing really doesn’t get better than this!

The Miss Behav’in is a 32’ Carolina Custom sportfishing boat which was built in 1992 and has been constantly maintained since. She can carry 4 anglers in comfort and style, and with a cruising velocity of 20 knots, she will certainly be carrying you at speed. The vessel has an enclosed head for extra comfort and comes rigged to the gills for awesome sportfishing.

The boat is equipped with GPS and fishfinder, pinpointing the best locations and locking onto the fish once there. Her outriggers and downriggers will let you target any depth or species, and her tuna tubes will let you troll live Skipjack and Bonito to draw in the biggest billfish around. She also has a livewell to keep more conventional bait just as fresh.

The Miss Behav’in has a variety of tackle to match the wide range of species you can target on your trip. Light and heavy tackle are combined with the option to troll and bottom fish, making for perfect hookups of everything from Roosterfish to Sailfish. You even have some basic fly fishing gear onboard, although serious fly anglers are recommended to bring their own.

A great boat, a seasoned crew, and one of the best sportfishing towns in the world - what more could you ask for? All trips come with tackle, lures, snacks, and a selection of drinks and full day trips even have lunch thrown in as well. At the end of your trip, all your fish will be cleaned and filleted for you, ready to cook up as the perfect end to the perfect day on the water!

Miss Behav'in has been located in the exclusive Los Suenos Marina since since the first year it opened. She knows how to raise fish and is a great economical choice for all your fishing goals! We are excited to introduce Captain Jeff Pursley from Islamorada Florida to the team. He has purchased the operation and will personally be at the helm as well. We are excited to welcome him to the team and look forward to a successful 2019 season.
