Carretera Puerto Juarez - Punt…
Cancún QR, Mexico

Don Chingon Cancun Charters is owned and operated by two Native Texans, Captain Jonathon Schoeneman and 1st Mate Travis Simmons.  Together, they have 50 years of fishing experience from all over the world. From a young age of just 4 yrs old when they met, they knew that fishing was in their blood and they were destined to be right here right now living their lifelong dream of putting people on fish of a lifetime, here in Cancun Mexico!  They are based out of Cancun’s main fishing port, Puerto Juarez at the “Marina Hacienda Del Mar”.

Don Chingon Cancun Charters operates a 25ft Panga with a 60 HP Suzuki engine designed for fishing harder than any large sport fisher and for a fraction of the cost. They guarantee that they are the best bang for your buck! They fish hard and smart and we don’t like to stop until we get you on those trophy fish! The boat is rigged with outriggers, down riggers and an assortment of 30 wides, 50 wides and jigging rods. 

This is the only Panga that the company knows of that is equipped with a state of the art Lindgren-Pitman S-1200. The LP is a rugged high capacity electric fishing reel that brings state-of-the-art technical advances to fishing. Increased efficiency from new technology allows high performance and high volume fishing, allowing them to fish deeper than anyone else (300-1900ft).

Join Don Chingon Cancun Charters and see for yourself just how good fishing from a smaller boat can be!

Very disappointed about the catches.  Didn’t get to keep not even one of the three

Hey Steeve,
    I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed but as any experienced fisherman knows, fishing is not always catching but we did land a nice Wahoo and a couple nice kingfish. Wahoo are a highly sought after pelagic Sportfish that are very seldom caught here and the fact that you guys landed one would make any salt water angler extremely thrilled. I sure was!
    Keeping your catch… 1. You did not ask to keep anything but even if you did, you were not prepared with a cooler for transport. 2. Hotels will not cook fish that you bring in due to safety regulations. 3. We always offer to stop at the island to have a restaurant cook your catch, and you declined.
