The ‘Pescadora’ is a stunning 41’ Ronin fishing yacht, which comes powered by twin 650 HP CAT engines and is equipped with Garmin, Furuno, and Simrad navigational equipment. It provides ample space for up to 8 guests to tackle all the big beasts. To add to the excitement, she’s also fitted with a Murray Brothers fighting chair with rocket launchers, Rupp triple spreader aluminum outriggers and center rigger, downriggers, Miya Enoch electric teaser reels, tuna tubes, and livewell.

The vessel is very stable in varying weather conditions thanks to its deep hull, and includes both a flybridge and Marlin tower with cover, a sizeable deck that is easily accessible from the air-conditioned salon, toilet and shower, TV and stereo system, and a galley with fridge, stove, and microwave, as well as beds.

The Pescadora Sportfishing crew specialize in light and heavy tackle, trolling, bottom fishing, spinning and jigging, and always use top-quality equipment including Shimano reels, Lindgren-Pitman 1200 electric reels for dredges, and the best line, hooks, and terminal tackle. Their 9-hour and multi-day offshore trips include quality fishing gear, live bait, lures, catch cleaning and packaging, as well as refreshments, local beer, fresh fruit, and lunch.
