Y-knot Fishing & Seadoos

When you want to avoid the fishing rush hour but still go after your trophy catch, turn to Y-knot Fishing & Seadoos! Captain Elme Aguayo and his crew will take you where the big fish hide and give you all the equipment you need to hook something massive. They’ve been exploring the offshore fishing grounds for years, and they always know how to get a bite.

Whatever prized game fish you can think of, chances are, you can find it in these waters. On half day trips, Roosterfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Jacks, Grouper, and Snapper will have your attention, and you won’t be traveling far to find them.

Full day expeditions will take you up to 30 miles offshore in search of Sailfish, Blue Marlin, and Yellowfin and Skipjack Tuna. All of these prized fish are feisty fighters, so when you get them on the line, it’s time to put all your skills and knowledge to the test. If you wanted an adrenaline rush, you’ve come to the right place.

Your ride and fishing platform is a 32’ Boston Whaler center console with all the comfort and fishing equipment for up to 6 people. The vessel is a smooth fishing machine with twin 300 HP Yamaha engines, top-notch navigational electronics, a live bait well, tuna tubes, and a fighting chair.

Capt. Elme will provide all the necessary fishing gear for everyone, and the first mate will be there to assist with everything you need. If you decide to keep some of your catch, the crew will clean and fillet it for you. For all their hard work, tips are always appreciated. Snorkeling is also available, but you should arrange in advance with the captain.

You’ll also have drinks and snacks on board, so you should only bring some sunscreen, and lunch on full day trips. Kids are welcome to join and fish with you, if you’d like to get them hooked while they’re young.

Go fishing with Y-knot Fishing & Seadoos and one thing’s certain – the thrilling fishing action will make it hard for you to get back to land!
