Mike's Fishing Charters - Isabella

Mike’s Fishing Charters & Tours proudly invites you to hop on for an unforgettable trip aboard the Isabella. The crew is made up of professionals who can take you on the fishing adventure of your dreams, whether it’s a quick inshore trip or a multi-day offshore excursion where the tackle is heavy and the fish huge.

The Isabella is a 44’ Viking that’s powered by twin 285 HP Detroit engines and outfitted with all the necessary safety and navigation gear needed for a fun and productive trip. It has room for up to 15 guests, but six to eight anglers are the recommended amount, especially when it comes to longer offshore trips.

If you’re interested in shorter trips inshore, there’s plenty of fun to be had going after some delicious Cubera Snapper and stubborn Roosterfish, among others. If you want to live the fishing life for several days, the crew can take you offshore to go after some huge Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Hammerhead Sharks, and more.

Whatever trip you decide to go on, it’s sure to be one to remember fondly for a long while. The price of any given trip will include quality Penn International tackle and all the gear you’ll need. Pickup can also be arranged at an alternative port, including Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, and Punta de Mita.
