PV Hook Up – GuanaTuna La Cruz

Explore some of the most beautiful waters in the world with PV Hook Up! The crew will take you on a fishing adventure you won’t forget, exploring the prolific Banderas Bay. They will make sure to take you to the best fishing spots and honey holes that only the locals know about.

The 29’ Super Panga center console boat you will be fishing aboard is just as at home offshore as it is in the shallows. Restored in 2011, the vessel boasts a pair of clean-burning Mercury engines powering it up to just under 20 knots. There’s an enclosed head, and tons of fishing space for a party of 4 to get the most out of their day on the water.

The vessel is equipped with everything from a livewell and outriggers, to a fighting chair and tuna tubes, to tempt in and take on whatever the Pacific may throw at you. It comes equipped with one of the best fishing equipment you are likely to find, and the option to go snorkeling if you get bored of the rods and reels.

The crew offers inshore and offshore trips at a variety of lengths, fishing the Banderas Bay for Cubera Snapper, Roosterfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Jack Crevalle, as well as heading up to 50 miles offshore in search of Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish and Mahi Mahi. Whatever you are after, you can rely on the captain and his highly-trained crew to have you fishing in the very best locations for the species you are after.

All trips come with tackle bait, lures, and licenses, as well as a cleaning and filleting service for your catch at the end of your trip. Essentially, you will have everything you will need for the perfect fishing trip, with a great boat in fish-filled waters, loaded up with as much equipment and tech as she can carry.

So head on down to the Banderas Bay, join PV Hook Up, and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
