Your charter operator describes his fishing experience as this: "Mi gusto y mi pasion, soy nativo de esta isla." If you're looking for some true local flair, then he's your guy – fishing is his love and his passion, and he's a native of this beautiful island! He was born and raised in this area, and has been a fishing fanatic since he was old enough to hold a rod. His passion soon turned from a hobby into a successful charter business. His favorite type of fishing? Pursuing Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin, and Sailfish!
