It is also fully rigged for sportfishing, with outriggers, downriggers, and a center rigger all on board. For your additional comfort, there is also a toilet and shower.

Aquasares Offshore Fishing Charters run a variety of trips to suit every taste. You can catch the fish of a lifetime, hooking a grander Blue Marlin weighing up to 1,200 lbs, or you could have the time of your life fishing with light tackle for the energetic White Marlin up to 120 lbs. If you want to see the smile on your kids’ faces, then you can take your whole family reef fishing, an activity that will delight anglers from 8 to 80. Whether you want to fish with light or heavy tackle, use a fighting chair or stand harness, troll, bait and switch, or fly fish, Aquasares will cater to your needs and put you on the fish.

After fighting the first Blue Marlin I got addicted... so I decided I had to provide this same experience to other anglers, using trolling or bait & switch techniques.

Before reading further note that the trip was changed from drifting for Mako to trolling for Bluefin tuna, as per Captain Bruno suggestion.

My overall rating is just 2 starts, because we did not get any hits on the heavy rods and the boat was not ready for change of tactics. The trip is a gamble, if the fish is in top water chances are you hit, else it’s a sure miss. In my humble opinion of fresh water fisherman a down-rigger might have helped in warm waters like today.

Kudos to Captain Bruno for the extra time trolling to find us a decent size fish. We ended up hitting a couple of 1kg tunas, trollerd around the school for Merlin , but no luck. So until next time, I think I would le to do the drift for shark.

Expensive trolling charters should have back up plan for some game fishing on ligther rods.

Last note please change description to show no snack or lanch is included. We end up splitting the crew food, no place to purchace in open water.

Big Game Fishing it is a fish of a lifetime, and you do not get those avery day.
All trips are a gamble, most of the time we find the fish, on the priviest 4 trips, we has 2 Bluefin tunas of 240lbs and 320lbs, released a White Marlin on Sunday and a Blue Marlin on Monday.

We are there to get the big fish, not to change tactics and get little tuny, we have a special trip just for those, maybe you should try it.

Hope you can go on the charters to catch blue sharks, or a Mako shark… just do not call it big game fishing…

About the snacks, we always have plenty on board, to when the clients forget, or to when we extend the fishing hours…

Better luck next time…
