Mike’s Fishing Charters - Karina II

Opequimar
Puerto Vallarta JA, Mexico

Mike’s Fishing Charters - Karina II is a charter operated by Captain Luis who loves nothing more than to take his guests out on the water and see their smiles as they catch the most exotic fish and make their dreams come true. He is an able seaman, a fun person to be around and a great teacher. He will tell you anything you need to know about the techniques needed to catch the big game fish like Sailfish and Marlins. His crew are welcoming and hard working, and make sure everyone is catered for.

You will fish aboard the convertible 42 foot Custom Built offshore sport fishing boat, which was originally built in 1989 and restored in 2014. This beautiful boat is powered by two 315 HP Cummins engines with a maximum cruising speed of 15 knots, and a capacity for 12 guests. The boat features a toilet and a lovely cushioned seating area in case you need a rest after your fight with the fish, as well as a flybridge and an anchoring system. It is equipped with a GPS and a VHF radio for communication with the Coast Guard, as well as safety equipment like fire extinguishers and life jackets. 

Mike’s Fishing Charters - Karina II will take you fishing in the Puerto Vallarta area; if you chose to go on an inshore trip you will fish Bahía de Banderas for Jack Crevalle, Roosterfish, Wahoo and Cubera Snapper. On the offshore trips you will go Past Marietas Islands, La Corbeteña, and El Banco for species such as Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, Sailfish, Skipjack and Yellowfin Tuna, Bonito and the beautiful Mahi Mahi. Captain Luis and his crew will provide you with all the necessary equipment such as rods, reels, tackle, live bait and lures, as well as a fishing licence and upon return to the shore, they will clean and fillet your catch. You are welcome to keep your catch (depending on species regulations) and anything you do not wish to keep, you can share with the crew. You will have bottled water provided on the trip, but please bring your own snacks and lunch.
