Circle Hooker Sport Fishing

Circle Hooker Sport Fishing operates out of the prestigious fishing town of Playa Flamingo, offering half and full day charter fishing the beautiful Pacific waters for a selection of table and game species. Fish either inshore or offshore for anything from Roosterfish to Sailfish, with a focus on fun and a crew willing to go the extra mile to make sure you bag some great catches.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is the “Tantrum”, a 29’ Boca Grande offshore sport fishing with room aboard for up to four guests to fish and relax in comfort. Powered by a 280 HP Cummins engine, you will be able to cruise at over 20 knots to get to the best fishing spots in no time - not that you have to head far, with big game pelagics found as little as 10 miles offshore!

The Circle Hooker her everything you will need for an awesome day on the water. Her covered top will keep the sun at bay, and her portable toilet will come in handy on long days offshore. She also has GPS and fishfinder to sound out the best fishing spots, and everything from outriggers and downriggers to a fighting chair and tuna tubes for when you get there.

Captain Edwin’s number one priority is making sure everyone on board has a great time. He will tell you all about the local area while working himself to the bone to put you the best fish. He is not the kind of captain to end a trip empty-handed just because your time is up and when the time finally does come to head back to dock he will even clean and fillet all your fish for you, ready to take home and enjoy.

Captain Edwin Murillo has spent his whole life on the water and has extensive experience fishing anywhere from the shallow bays to the depths of the Pacific Ocean. For Captain Edwin, the most important part of any trip is making sure his clients leave with smiles on their faces and fish in their hands, even if that means staying out past the end of the trip.
