Teaser Charters - 35’ Bertram

Teasercharters L.G. Smith Boul…
Oranjestad, Aruba

Teaser Fishing Charters are based in beautiful Oranjestad, Aruba, and offer thrilling nearshore and offshore trips on the crystal blue waters. Captain Milton is a very friendly and experienced captain, who has been living and breathing fishing ever since he was a boy.

Your day will be spent aboard the stunning ‘Teaser’, an immaculately clean 35’ Bertram sportfisher that is equipped with everything you will need for a productive day out on the water. It is powered by twin Cummins 315HP engines, and can comfortably accommodate six passengers. The vessel is fully air-conditioned, and comes outfitted with sounders, radar, fishfinder, 2 VHF radios, EPIRB, and more. The boat engines are able to propel Teaser to cruising speeds of about 24 knots. To top it off, the boat is equipped with 3 fighting chairs, outriggers, downrigger, centerrigger and a large flybridge.

For fishing, the Teaser crew utilizes 30lbs, 50lbs and 80lbs Shimano and Penn International professional rods and reels. If you would like to eat your catch, the crew will be happy to take your fish to a restaurant or your hotel. Do note, however, that this does not apply to billfish - the Teaser team practices a strict ‘catch and release’ policy for these species. They are big believers in conservation and being responsible with marine resources for future generations. To that end, they do what they can to spread the word.

Captain Milton has been fishing these waters for over 20 years, and has claimed several titles in both local and international fishing competitions held in the area. He is also a proud record holder of a 1086lbs Blue Marlin.

There is a variety of roaming pelagics commonly targeted on Aruba deep sea fishing trips, including Blue Marlin and Sailfish, Wahoo, Dorado, Barracuda, Mackerel, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Bonito, Amberjacks and plenty of others. Depending on the season, Teaser charters also do jigging for Jacks, Groupers and other bottom fish.

Booked a 6 hr trip, cut it short after 3+ hrs of driving around burning fuel in 8-10ft swells. Absolutely no action, not even a nible, and crew did not seem to have any alternative plans or care one way or another. Don’t expect crew to get us to fish every time but for $600 I do expect some effort to find fish and communicate with us about their plan. Waste a morning and $.

To preface this review, I have been fishing since I was a young boy. The type of fishing that we expected was not what we did. My understanding from the booking was that we would troll and jig. We were told two hours into the trip that we would only be trolling.l, and to make matters worse we didn’t catch or hook a single thing. There wasn’t any introduction, minimal talking, no explanation of what we were going to do for the day. The deck hand didn’t seem interested in having a conversation any time we tried to make one. While the captain was overall a nice person I don’t think they are interested in giving you a good fishing experience nor care about you, but instead just want to make a quick buck. I’m sorry to be harsh but our experience with teaser charters was horrible. I don’t recommend anyone book with them.

Good afternoon Edan,

We apologize for your unsatisfactory experience on your fishing trip with us.

Our regular fishing trips are trolling and jigging trips.
We do not offer any light tackle bottom fishing trips close to shore as you expected and thought you booked for.
That is why all info of our fishing trip services are clearly stated on the FishingBooker website and we do not have any equipment for ligthtackle bottom fishing
As the wind and sea current were quite hard on that day, jigging was impossible.

At the beginning of the trip we did introduce ourselves and explained where the drinks and bathroom were.
We also informed you where you could have a seat and we did not know that you needed more info of the trip as our clients usually ask when they are not sure of something or when they would like more info.
We would have gladly helped you with any requests or info.
During trolling our mate was changing fishing baits and lures all the time and he would have answered any questions you would have.

Furthermore after 1 hour out there fishing you became sea sick and requested us to go back to the dock, as 3 of you were throwing up from the 3 to 5 foot seas.
We followed your request ,and did also offer you to go back out with your sister, because she wanted to go back fishing for the last remaining 2 hours, but her mom refused to let her go.
Please bear in mind that we were out trolling for only 1 hour and you became sick after that, which did not give you enough time to catch a fish. Unfortunately we can not forecast how many fishes we will catch each day.

Kind regards,

Teaser Marketing Manager.

The captain and crew were awesome. They offered polite conversation and advice during the trip. The boat was ready to go when we arrived and we were fishing within 15 minutes of getting on the boat. They also cleaned and bagged our fish for us. We caught a few tuna and had a Mahi Mahi get off close to the boat. Excellent time.
