If you’re planning on visiting Manzanillo, Mexico and have dreams of battling deep-sea giants you’ll find Lori III Sportfishing to be the perfect charter for you. Captain Ramon Michel is inviting anglers of all ages and skill levels to join one of his exciting trips, venturing up to 30 miles offshore and targeting some of the most prized species swimming in the local waters!

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 40’ Astillero Manzanillo, offshore sportfisher, powered by a 350 HP Caterpillar engine. Its maximum capacity is 8 anglers, but how many can fish at the same depends on many factors. Two first mates go on every trip, they are there to assist the customers with anything they need and will even clean your catch at the end of the trip. The boat is equipped with navigation and communication electronics and all the necessary safety equipment. The captain is CPR trained and there is a flushable toilet on board.

Each guest will be equipped with first-class Penn, Okuma, and Tiagra rods and reels, giving you the best chance of landing that catch you’re after when you get the opportunity. Live bait is not used but you’ll have access to an assortment of artificial lures and frozen bait. The main fishing techniques employed on charter trips are bottom and deep-sea fishing.

The captain will provide each group with 24 cold beers, 2 liters of soda, 5 liters of water, 25 toasts, vegetables to make ceviche or sashimi, and a cooler with ice bar. You have the freedom to bring on board any additional food and drinks you’d like.

Now find a slot in the captain’s calendar that works for you and book your next fishing adventure today!

Ramon's been around the water his whole life. He started off as a sailor at 18 years old and by the time he was 25, he was already the captain of Lori III. He perfected various fishing techniques such as trolling and fishing with a variety of bait and lures. The favorite part of his job is providing a great service and making sure the customers always have a great experience, even when the fish is not biting.
