Fishing Herradura

Sport Fishing Herradura welcomes you aboard for a day exploring the area’s top spots for some delicious and hard-fighting fish. Captain Randy Delgado builds every trip around what you want to do, making your fun and safety the number one priorities so you can relax and enjoy the fishing.

You will be fishing aboard the Los Cielos, a 23’ Aquasport center console. The boat has great all-round fishing space and a covered top to keep off the hot tropical sun. She also has a portable toilet for extra comfort on longer trips, and snorkeling equipment for if you want to spend your time in the water as well as on it.

The Los Cielos is rigged and ready to take on even the fiercest of big game species, with a mix of light and heavy tackle and a ton of great equipment and tech. GPS and fishfinder get you on the best catches, while the boat’s outriggers and downriggers let you properly target every habitat and species.

To tempt in the fish, you will be given a livewell full of fresh live bait. The boat also has tuna tubes to let you troll live Bonito and Skipjack and lure in some real prize-worthy sea monsters. On top of this, you will have a range of colorful lures to fill out your spread or change things up.

Half day trips will see you bringing in tasty Snapper and Grouper, as well as some huge Roosterfish, Jacks, and Barracuda for some serious inshore battles. Book in for the whole day, and you can get offshore in search of massive Marlin, huge Sailfish, and a rich variety of other big game pelagics.

No matter what you do, you will be in for an awesome day with an experienced local guide and a great, modern boat. So climb aboard and get ready to make some memories!
