Pepe's Fleet - 28' Sport Panga

Pepe’s Fleet operates several great boats out of Mazatlan, Mexico, taking groups out to enjoy the awesome fishing and wonderful views which draw tourists from across the continent. There is something for everyone in these warm, Pacific waters, and these guys are the perfect team to put you on the best of them.

You will be fishing aboard 28’ center console, fresh out of the box in 2017 and powered by a 225HP Yamaha engine. The boat offers speed, comfort, and reliability, allowing you to fish and swim without a care in the world. She features a clean, spacious deck, a covered top to keep off the hot Mexican sun, and an enclosed head for extra comfort on long trips offshore.

What you do on your trip is entirely up to you. You can hit the reefs to drop some lines for Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, and Barracuda, or head further out to battle Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and even Swordfish. After a specific species? Spend the whole day chasing Roosterfish in the shallows or Marlin in the deep. Whatever you want, the captain and crew are here to make it happen!

This is the perfect boat for families and friends wanting to take in the sights and catch some tasty fish. If you are up for more of a challenge, the vessel has more than enough equipment and tech to give you a world-class fishing adventure. GPS and fishfinder will get you on your chosen fish in no time, and outriggers, tuna tubes, and a fighting chair will have you fishing like a pro without the huge price tag. Keep in mind live bait is charged extra.

The fish are waiting and the boat is fuelled and ready to go. She is loaded with everything you need, from tackle, bait, and fishing licenses, to a variety of drinks and some tasty treats to keep you going as you fight your dinner into the boat. The crew will even arrange transportation to the boat – just let them know the name of the hotel you’re staying at before the trip.

All you need to do is climb aboard and enjoy.
