A fish processor came to the boat and took us to their shop, vacuum packed the catch over night and delivered a 50 pound, airport ready box for us the following morning at 7:00 am, so convenient and reasonably priced. If you have a great trip like we did, tip captain and mate generously, they deserve it!

Read all the reviews of the boats listed on the site. We thought that a larger boat might be better equipped to handle the swells (which it did) but upon return, some of the smaller vessels actually caught more fish and marlin which we were hoping for. We understand that marlin are in towards Dec. & Jan. Nevertheless, this is my second time going personally and cannot wait to go back next year! You will not be disappointed. The people are wonderful in Cabo

Check seasons on what kind of fish you want to catch and plan accordingly. Even reach out to the captain before and see what the options are.

Make sure you let your captain know what species you would like to target. You can almost always experience some success if you're willing to be flexible with what you target.

Late August is very warm/hot at Rocky Point (118 degrees on the day we went).Fishing was excellent but would probably be more enjoyable during cooler temperatures.

Francisco and Homer were awesome, asked what we wanted to do and delivered big. We caught sailfish, mahi, and big yellowfin tuna, ended the day hoping no more would bite, so tired of cranking big fish. My wife and I booked hoping just to see the beauty of Cabo and maybe catch a few fish, our expectations were more than met. I would recommend El Budster to anyone! Thanks for the trip of a lifetime!

It was a slow day but they kept changing bait until we found what they wanted. The deck hand worked hard at all day. And we did get into it with three Dorado, a small Tuna and ended the day with a 104”, 140 # striped Marlin.

Boat was on time for pick up and in good shape. Deck hand Carlos was awesome and kept everything running smoothly. Caught two Dorados and they were cleaned, fileted and packaged nicely for us and enjoyed them for dinner. Fishing could have been better but that was not fault of the captain as he continually worked the ocean. I would recommend this boat and crew for fishing in Puerto Vallarta. We stayed in Nuevo Vallarta and they picked us up at the Nuevo harbor.

The boat was I excellent condition, canopy from bow to aft which is very nice. Captain Jorge is probably of the best in the area. We caught 6 Mahi Mahi and a sail fish. From the chatter on the radio I believe we were the boat out that caught fish.

Thought Eduardo was going to be our captain as advertised but nevertheless we had a great captain (limited English) who tried his darndest for us to attempt to catch a marlin in the afternoon. However, we caught several mahi that were prepared for us to take to a restaurant which was greatly appreciated. Would definitely book this again but would appreciate a "refresh" on the inside cabin.

The captain and the crew were great. We caught lots of fish. Sorry guys we gave you a small tip. We asked afterwards what the tip should be and we were told 40 to 50 per person. We gave them 20 each. We will be more generous next time!

Captain Alex and First Mate Richard were very proficient and knew the exact place to go for us to 'catch 'm!' They were very attentive and made sure we were comfortable. Each of our party of five caught several fish and felt like pros within the first hour. Highly recommend Catch 'm. It was the perfect start to our trip. We can't wait to grill up the filets!
