Mike’s Fishing Charters - Nicole

Mike’s Fishing Charters & Tours is a business well established in this part of Mexico, and their fleet is a testament to that fat. You’ll be hard-pressed not to find a vessel that fits your requirements, and the professional crew will do their best to provide you with a tailored fishing experience.

You’ll be fishing aboard the Nicole, which is a 38’ Bertram sportfishing boat, powered by a pair of 215 HP Cummins engines and ready to take you where the fish are biting. There’s plenty of room for up to 10 guests, but it’s generally recommended that a maximum of six anglers go out at any given time, particularly on longer trips.

Depending on how much time you’ve got to spare and what you want to go after, expect to see a variety of fishing options. If you want to go on a shorter trip to catch some fish and have a great time, you’re sure to enjoy the inshore waters and fish like Jack Crevalle and Roosterfish. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something a bit more intensive, El Banco is considered to be one of the best locations for big game anglers to visit. There you can go after huge Black and Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Hammerhead Sharks, Tuna, and more.

Whatever you decide to do, you can expect to have quality Penn International tackle, and everything else necessary for a productive trip. Once the trip is over, the crew can clean and bag the fish for your convenience. Pickup from a number of different ports, such as Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, and Punta de Mita can also be arranged if it’s more convenient for you. Hop onboard for a chance to have a fishing experience of a lifetime.
