Mike’s Fishing Charters - Gisele

Av Paseo De La Marina Sur
Puerto Vallarta JA, Mexico

Mike’s Fishing Charters operates one of the largest and most established charter fleets in Puerto Vallarta. They offer trips ranging anywhere from four-hour inshore mornings targeting Jacks and Roosterfish to 14-hour offshore extravaganzas going after monster Blue and Black Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and more.

No matter what you fish for, do it in style and with confidence aboard the Gisele. This custom-built boat can carry groups of up to 12 guests, although she is best-suited to no more than 6-8 anglers. Completely restored in 2014, the vessel now boasts an air-conditioned interior with an enclosed head and plenty of space to rest your aching arms in the cool.

The Gisele is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to get on the best spots around, outriggers and downriggers to maximize your target species and techniques, and a fighting chair to let you hold your own against even the fiercest Blue Marlin offshore.

On your trip, you will be presented with the best tackle from Penn International. You will have the choice of live bait fresh from the tank and a selection of lifelike lures to trick even the fussiest of fish. You will have the option to troll, drift, and bottom fish to target all the top species in the area.

Where you fish is up to how long you are out for. Four and six-hour trips will stay in the inshore bays and calmer waters for Jacks, Roosterfish, and Mackerel. 8, 10, and 12-hour trips will let you get offshore in search of Tuna, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Marlin.

Book in for a 14-hour trip and you will blow straight past the bay and head straight for El Banco. This is the dream destination for any angler wishing to test their skills and their wits against the biggest fish out there. Target massive Blue and Black Marlin, and monster Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and more.

No matter what you do, Mike’s Fishing Charters is the place to be, with a great boat, an awesome crew, and some of the best fishing grounds in the world!
