Dorado Loco

Join Dorado Loco for a day of fishing adventure in the prolific waters of Delaware! Captain Demetri will take you on an exploration of the inshore and nearshore wrecks, as well as the deep offshore waters. You’ll be going to the most fish-rich spots in the area, so get ready to reel ‘em in!

Capt. Demetri will take you out on his 27’ Sailfish center console boat, accommodating up to 4 anglers. It’s powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines, making it a fast and reliable vessel. There’s a toilet and a shower on board for your convenience. You’ll also have all the necessary navigational electronics to help put you on the fish.

Delaware waters are incredibly rich in natural life, and fish aren’t an exception. There’s a variety of species that call these waters their home, and you’re sure to reel in some of the prized ones. Depending on the trip you choose, expect to come across the likes of Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Seabass, Bluefish, Flounder, and Tilefish.

All of the fishing equipment will be provided for you on board, including rods, reels, and tackle. You’ll get the chance to try out different fishing techniques, using both live bait and artificial lures. Your catch can be cleaned and filleted at the marina upon your return, so you can take it straight to the table when you get home!

Feel free to bring your kids along for the ride, and make this a family trip they’ll never forget. You’ll get snacks and drinks on board, but bring lunch with you if you’re going on a longer trip. We do ask that you pack food in a soft cooler. No hard coolers on board. If needed a soft cooler can be provided.

All that’s left to do is book a trip with Dorado Loco, and you’re off to your new Delaware fishing adventure!

Captain Demetri has been fishing Delaware waters since he was a child growing up with a rod and reel in his hands and he's still just as excited to get out on the water as he was the first time. He enjoys taking people out, showing them the joys of fishing, and putting smiles on their faces.
