El Budster Pride

Stunning Cabo San Lucas is deep sea fishing paradise, and what better way to experience it than aboard the newest addition to Salvador’s Sportfishing family - the El Budster Pride. Placed on the water in February 2015, this well equipped vessel and her hand-selected crew offer a professional service, and a fun-filled fishing experience.

The 29 ft Californian boat will get you out on the water and targeting game fish with its 315HP Cummins engine, Furuno GPS and Fishfinder, and VHF marine radio. On deck, you will find two fighting chairs, two outriggers, and plenty of space to move around and get comfortable, while inside you will find a fully functioning bathroom and enclosed cabin. For your enjoyment, the boat is fitted with a powerful Alpine marine stereo system, as well as an icebox to keep your drinks cool on those beautiful sunny days.

The eight hour fishing trip will have you targeting a range of game fish, including Marlin and other Billfish, Tuna, Dorado and much more. The experienced crew will provide you with quality Shimano Tiagra and Penn two speed reels, rods and tackle, and will be on hand to assist you with anything you need.

Why not join this experienced and friendly crew for the ultimate game fishing adventure!
