Shut up & Fish Guam Charter

Shut Up & Fish invites you on a fun and memorable fishing adventure on the productive waters of Guam. You will depart for Hagåtña and into some of the world’s big game rich waters that offer year round fishing. Captain Joaquin is a local who has fished here since he was just 5 years old and is influenced by his family.

Fishing in Guam is spectacular, to put it mildly. Any month of the year, you can go out in search of big and tasty fish. Here, you can target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Marlin, Grouper, Red Snapper, Barracuda, Giant Trevally, Yellowtail Amberjack, and more.

Captain Joaquin operates a 26’ Sea Cat Catamaran originally built in 1996 with a capacity for up to six guests. Powered by twin 150 HP Mercury engines, the Cat is fast and efficient. It features a GPS and a fishfinder to help you locate the best fishing spots, a wireless trolling motor, a set of outriggers for trolling, and safety features like adult and child life jackets. The vessel is very comfortable and features a bed and a multimedia system for entertainment.

Shut Up & Fish will make sure you have a great time by putting you on the fish of your dreams while providing excellent customer service. They provide Penn and Shimano rods and reels, a variety of tackle, live and artificial bait, and fishing licenses for everyone on board. Captain Joaquin says: “Stop wishing and let’s go fishing!”.

Captain Joaquin has been fishing since he was five years old and has always loved being on the water with his family as a kid. His family is responsible for his deep love of fishing as they, too, are fishermen. Fast forward to his adulthood, Joaquin has become a captain and a charter operator in order to share his passion for fishing with like minded anglers. He loves fishing for Yellowfin, Wahoo, and Marlin, and can be found on the water every day - even when not operating a charter or taking family fishing. Captain Joaquin has participated in and placed highly in a number of fishing tournaments.
