Mike’s Fishing Charters–Isabella II

Av Paseo De La Marina Sur
Puerto Vallarta JA, Mexico

Mike’s Fishing Charters operates a fleet of awesome vessels out of Puerto Vallarta, fishing inshore and offshore for anything from Roosterfish and Cubera Snapper to Sailfish and Blue Marlin. With trips ranging from four-hour bay days to multi-day offshore extravaganzas, you are bound to find that perfect charter, whatever that means to you.

You will be spending your trip aboard the Isabella II, one of the largest and most luxurious vessels in the fleet. This 42’ Hatteras cruiser was completely overhauled in 2014, and can now carry up to 15 guests in comfort, although it is best-suited to no more than 8 anglers, especially on longer trips.

The vessel is equipped GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, downriggers, and a fighting chair, making her ready for whatever the ocean can throw at you. She also comes with a livewell full to bursting with fresh live bait, and a wide range of tournament-grade tackle to match the huge selection of species you can target.

The Isabella II features everything you would expect of a world-class cruiser. She is a perfect home from home for six to eight anglers to live aboard in luxury. Her air-conditioned interior boasts comfortable cabins, a full, enclosed bathroom complete with a shower, and tons of space to relax in between huge hookups up on deck.

Whether you want to spend a few hours catching tasty Cubera Snapper and hard-fighting Roosterfish or head offshore for three days of billfishing madness, Mike’s Fishing Charters has the perfect vessel and the perfect crew to take you out. All their staff are bilingual and extremely well-trained and will do everything they can to make your trip truly unforgettable.
