Escualo Fleet - Black Marlin 36'

Escualo Fleet operates awesome vessels out of Mazatlan, Mexico, offering a range of fishing adventures led by an experienced and friendly crew.

You will be spending the day aboard the “Black Marlin”, a 36’ Innovator cruiser. The vessel is powered by twin 210HP Turbo Diesel Cummins engines, bringing her reliably and safely up to a cruising speed of 20 knots.

The Black Marlin can carry up to 8 anglers and comes with everything you will need on your trip. If you are looking for the ultimate sportfishing adventure the Black Marlin has the tech and equipment to put you on some awesome catches. She features GPS and fishfinder to track down the best spots, outriggers to effectively troll for fast-moving pelagic species, tuna tubes, and a fighting chair to let you hold your own against even the more fearsome bluewater beasts.

You will be kitted out with tournament-grade Shimano and Penn International gear for a variety of weight ranges, with the option to troll, bottom fish, spin, jig, and even try out traditional handline fishing. You will also be able to make use of the awesome selection of quality lures which have been hand chosen for the different target species available.

Choose between bottom fishing for Snapper, Grouper, Roosterfish, Snook, and Pompano, or go further offshore on a deep sea adventure and come face-to-gills with Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Yellowfin Tuna. All trips come with a skilled and professional crew, who will work hard to make sure you have a great time and will clean and fillet all your catch at the end of the day. Snorkeling equipment is also available upon request if you want to catch a glimpse of the amazing underwater world.

This really is what life is all about: Spending a fun day aboard a great boat with an experienced crew, catching huge fish, and enjoying some stunning views. So get down to Mazatlan and start making some memories!
