Mike's Fishing Charters - Isabella

Opequimar
Puerto Vallarta JA, Mexico

Mike’s Fishing Charters welcomes you aboard for the ultimate adventure, heading offshore on a multi-day big game blowout targeting Marlin, Hammerheads, and Yellowfin.

Alternatively, also invited for a fun morning inshore fishing for tasty Cubera Snapper, hard-fighting Roosterfish, and plenty more besides. Whatever you fancy doing, the “Isabella” is ready and waiting to get you on the fish!

The “Isabella” is a 44’ Viking cruiser which was completely overhauled in 2014 and now makes for the perfect home from home out on the water. The vessel can carry up to 15 passengers, although groups of six to eight anglers make for the best fishing experience, especially offshore.

The boat is equipped with the latest electronics and a wide range of fancy fishing equipment. Outriggers, downriggers, tuna tubes, fighting chair - she has it all!

You will have a livewell full of fresh bait, and a selection of lures to mimic whatever the fish fancy eating on the day, as well as a huge range of tackle to target the wide variety of species available.

On longer trips, the Isabella really comes into her own. She has plenty of room in her air-conditioned interior, with comfortable staterooms, an enclosed bathroom complete with shower, a full galley, and tons of space to relax in the cool after hard-fought battles up on deck.

This really is setting up to be the trip of a lifetime, no matter which one you choose. An awesome boat, a world-class, bilingual crew, and some of the finest sportfishing grounds in the world. So climb aboard and get ready to make some memories!
