Bluemarlin Fishing Charters

Avenida Malecón

If you are going to do something well, you go to the experts. So if you want to catch Marlin, you need to fish with Bluemarlin Fishing Charters. Captain Luis Gomez has decades of experience and will do everything in his power to get you on the fish and making memories.

Depending on the season, you’ll be able to target Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Striped Marlin, and Pacific Sailfish. By-catch includes Yellowfin Tuna, Bigeye Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Bonito, Wahoo, and Grouper.

Fishing for Marlin is a prestigious thing indeed. These deep-sea predators are on the bucket list of any angler worth their salt. And fishing with Bluemarlin Fishing Charters will give you the best opportunity to catch them. These waters are renowned for their excellent Marlin fishing, and still maintain the world record of a 1,014 lb Blue Marlin caught by Jorge Jurado in 1985.

The crew might not catch a Marlin of that size with you, but with their combined experience and excellent navigational equipment, you do have the best chance possible to catch your dream fish.

You will spend the day on a 28’ Bertram motor yacht. This beautiful vessel has many of your creature comforts on board, to make your day extra special. There is plenty of seating for when you need a rest from the action, and a fighting chair too. You will be especially grateful for that when reeling in your Marlin.

Everything is included in this trip. You will use Penn and Shimano gear, with lines ranging from 80 to 30 test lines. When the fight to reel in you catch starts your gear won’t let you down.

Bluemarlin Fishing Charters also provide plenty of food and drink on the trip. For species that can be kept the crew typically keep the fish. If you would like some fillets to take back then please let the crew know during the trip.
