Allin Sportfishing - 28’ Mako

Allin Sportfishing operates out of Playa Herradura, offering half and full day trips target the area’s top table and game species. Spend the morning fishing for Jacks, Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, and more, or book in for a full day offshore, targeting Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, and Yellowfin Tuna.

The waters around Playa Herradura are famous among offshore anglers for their huge billfish, matched only by the short travel times to get to them. Captain Henry has been running charters in the area for almost a decade, giving him the knowledge and the skills to get you on the best catches the area has to offer.

You will be spending the day fishing aboard the “Allin”, a 28’ Mako with room aboard for up to 5 guests. Completely restored in October of 2016, the vessel can now cruise at 22 knots to get you to the best fishing grounds, and features plenty of tech and equipment to get you reeling in some awesome catches once you are there.

The Allin is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to sound out the deep and lock onto the best fishing spots, outriggers and downriggers to reach the fish wherever they are, and a fighting chair to help bring them in. There is also a livewell bursting with bait to make sure nothing can resist your hooks.

All trips come with tackle, bait, lures, and drinks. All you need is a license and a big cooler, because you are going after some seriously big and seriously tasty fish!
