Striped Marlin Sportfishing

Don’t pass the opportunity of a lifetime to go deep sea fishing off the Pacific Coast of Mexico with a team of highly-trained professional tournament anglers. Striped Marlin Sportfishing will take you on the adventure of a lifetime, chasing some of the biggest fish you’ve ever seen. Captain Kevin Silva Malpica and his crew are experts in Marlin fishing and they’d love to share their wisdom and knowledge with you!

You’ll be fishing from a 25’ Argos center console, a versatile boat that exceeds all necessary requirements for both inshore and offshore fishing. She comes with state-of-the-art navigational technology, safety gear, and fishing equipment. You’ll have a fighting chair to help leverage your strength over your target, outriggers for trolling, and lots of room to move around.

The boat can accommodate 4 guests and up to 3 can fish at the same time. Kids ages 6 and older are welcome on the offshore trip, however, you must 18 or older for spearfishing. All equipment is provided, including top-quality spearfishing gear, as well as Penn and Shimano rods and reels.

While spearfishing, you’ll stay closer to shore, targeting a variety of species, including Cubera Snapper, Snook, Jack Crevalle, and Wahoo. Offshore trips will see you fishing up to 15 miles from the coast, trolling for Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, Sailfish, and Marlin. No matter which package you choose, you’ll have a highly-skilled crew by your side working hard to put you on the biggest fish possible.

Your fishing license is included, as well as fishing cleaning and filleting services. You’ll also have water, sandwiches, and fruit on the boat, in case you get hungry or thirsty. All you need to bring is sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera to take a photo of that beautiful Marlin before you release it back into the wild!

Your next adventure awaits! Start planning your trip today and let Striped Marlin Sportfishing show you why they should be your number one choice for offshore sportfishing!
