Cowboy Fishing runs angling trips out of Ayampe, Salango, and Las Tunas and offers to show you what the local fishery is all about.

Come on aboard with Capt. Adam, whose main priority is to get you on some fish. Expect to use techniques like trolling, jigging, popping, and spinning, based on the species you’re targeting. Speaking of which, you have the option of 2 to 4-hour trips, where you’ll be fishing for the likes of Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Tuna, Bonito, Needlefish, and Jack Crevalle, depending on the specific season and the day’s weather.

When it comes to rods, reels, and terminal tackle, everything you need is included in the price. No need to worry about fishing licenses, as they are not required. Bait isn’t included in the trip price, so make sure to check with the captain what your options are before the trip. You can keep anything you catch, as long as it’s legal to do so.

Here to help you with anything you need, the first mate will be on hand during the trip. Leaving a tip for a job well done is much appreciated. This is a children-friendly charter, so you’re welcome to bring your kids on for a fun fishing adventure.

I started fishing very young, riding my bike to local ponds and creeks in Texas and Oklahoma. I love to fish for Largemouth Bass and temperate Bass in the United States when I am visiting in my small 10' boat. I moved to Ecuador 12 years ago and since I have learned to fish in the ocean from the shore and from boats. I love to go after Snapper, Snook, Amberjack, and Mackerel from the boats and from the shore here in Ecuador.
