Pepe's Fleet - 38' Cabin Cruiser

If you are looking to experience world class sport fishing off the coast of Mazatlán, Pepe’s Fleet has a charter for you. With more than 50 years of experience, they have the knowledge to help you reel in some of the most prestigious species in these waters. Come aboard and hook into a catch to remember!

Step aboard a 38’ Riviera powered by twin 250 HP Cummins engines. This vessel is loaded with everything you need for expert deep sea and bottom fishing. On board you will find downriggers, outriggers, tuna tubes, a live bait well, and a fighting harness. Penn and Shimano fishing gear is provided for you, and the boat can accommodate 5 to 6 lines.

While fishing with Pepe’s Fleet, you can choose to spend your day chasing after billfish and other pelagic prizes or bottom fishing for giant Snapper and Grouper. While fishing the blue water more than 20 miles from shore you will use 60 lb test line, lures, and live bait such as Ballyhoo and Bonito. Live bait fishing and trolling could land you anything from Mahi Mahi and Yellowfin Tuna to Sailfish, Swordfish, and three different types of Marlin. Keep in mind live bait is charged extra.

If you choose to spend your time bottom fishing instead, the crew will take you to their favorite spots 15 to 18 miles north of Mazatlán. Here you will fish with shrimp, shrimp heads, and squid for a variety of species including Grouper, Pompano, and Triggerfish. You will also troll for massive “Orange”  Red Snapper and Seabass using Rapala lures. You may keep your catch and the crew will clean it for you.

Pepe’s Fleet provides everything you need, including a fishing license, gear, drinks, and two boxed lunches (additional lunches are charged extra). They also offer transportation from your hotel to the dock – just let them know which hotel you’re staying at. All you have to do is show up ready for the catch of a lifetime!
