Mike’s Fishing Charters - Piquis

Mike’s Fishing Charters & Tours runs one of the largest fleets around, guaranteed to please even the most discerning fisherman. When it comes to the crew of the Piquis, anything from a short 4-hour trek to a 16-hour deep sea fishing adventure is in the cards if you’re up to the challenge.

The Piquis is a custom-built 46’ sportfishing machine, equipped with a pair of 320 HP Detroit engines, and all the necessary safety and navigation gear. There’s plenty of room aboard for up to 18 guests, but up to 10 anglers is the recommended amount, especially when it comes to longer trips. It also has a number of useful amenities, including an air-conditioned cabin, an enclosed head, outriggers, and a fighting chair.

Depending on how much time you have available, you can choose from a variety of different trip options. Shorter trips will mostly have you fishing in the bay for Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, and more. If you decide on a somewhat longer trip, you can go out to El Morro to target Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and possibly Marlin as well.

Experienced anglers who want a real challenge can visit El Banco and la Corbeteña and go after some of the biggest fish out there. Here you should be able to find huge Black and Blue Marlin, Hammerhead Sharks, Yellowfin Tuna, and more besides.

The price of any given trip will include all the necessary fishing gear you’ll need, as well as bottled water and complimentary fish cleaning after the trip. Pickup can be arranged on other ports as well, including Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, and Punta de Mita. Hop on the Piquis and let the crew take you for an unforgettable fishing adventure.
