Get Tight Fishing Cartagena by Bomba Tours

Welcome to our Flagship!

If you love to catch fish, look no further than Get Tight Fishing in Cartagena! Our trips can be geared towards all types of anglers, whether novice or experienced. You can count on a safe, comfortable, and reliable ride no matter which fishing spots you visit.

We offer an unforgettable fishing experience on a REAL fishing boat with a spacious deck and all the necessary amenities. There’s no need to sacrifice comfort while you ride in style.

You’ll be fishing on a 28’ Bertram that can accommodate up to 6 guests. This flybridge boat has been recently restored and features equipment that is rarely seen, if ever, in Colombia.

We are outfitted with the latest Garmin Chartplotter paired with a commercial transducer that marks fish up to 10,000 feet. We have 8 casting rods, 4 trolling rods, 2 deep drop rods (Lindgren Pitman 2400 and 1200), spear-guns, and snorkeling gear.

Leave the stress to us while you focus on bringing in the big game. Our crew has over 80 years of combined experience as professional local fishermen who have also tested waters all over Canada, the U.S.A, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bahamas, Saint Maarten, Venezuela, and more. We are no strangers to water and some of the most sought-after prize fish.

Combining years of experience with the latest technology, our crew has the ability to put every charter right in the middle of the action. We target various species, such as Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Cobia, Marlin, Tuna, Sailfish, Grouper, and more.

Depending on your trip choice, the crew will provide lunch prepared by our chef. You are welcome to return to our restaurant to enjoy your freshly caught fish at the end of your charter. We are happy to clean, prepare, and cook your fish free of charge.

Fish Guarantee: Feeling seasick and want to end your day early? No problem! Join us at our island resort for an ATV ride on the house.

Get Tight Fishing guarantees you’ll have a truly amazing day.

    Pose by our rods and bait-fish for your insta photos. This option is a straightforward alternative that skips the theatrics of trolling a hook that I know won't get you a bite. It's important to note that achieving successful catches requires a minimum hour journey to fishing spots, leaving just around 1-2 hours for actual fishing after lines are set and reeled back. While the possibility of catching fish is present, it's also reminiscent of trying your luck at a local lottery retailer.
