Captain Tayo The Epic – San Pedro

Spend the day with Captain Tayo and cast for your dreams over the flats of San Pedro! As he has logged many years of experience with the moon and tides, Captain Tayo knows these waters forwards and back.

These waters are known for Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, Snook, Jack Crevalle, Great Barracudas, Jack Crevalle, Mackerels, Cobia, Grunt, Ladyfish, Mangrove Snapper, Catfish, and more – with any luck, you’ll find out for yourself!

On these trips, fly fishing is the best. Doesn’t matter if you are a novice or a professional. Capt. Tayo also offers trolling and bottom fishing using light tackle or spinning rods, but you may need to bring your own gear. If you don’t own a fly rod or spinning rod the captain will assist you.

You’ll be welcome aboard a 21’ Pesqueros flats boat with space for 2 passengers. It has everything you need for a productive day on the water. Rods and reels are not included, but if you don’t own one Captain Tayo will provide you. Be sure to ask about bait lures, live bait is included but be sure to ask about it so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

A First Mate will be there to make sure everything is running smoothly. Mates work hard to make your trip count, so a 10-20% tip is customary.

You will need to buy a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect.

A few items to bring, sunglasses, sunscreen, and UV clothing. Drinks will be available for you, water, sodas, and ice. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but not provided on the package. There will be lunch and some light snacks available on board.

You could keep reading this, but wouldn’t you rather be fishing with Captain Tayo?
