Be prepared for a workout on a yellow fin tuna. Much harder than I expected but worth the all the effort!

Tuna were a great fish to go after. The water was amazing and I would have to say some of the best fishing I’ve ever experienced.

Hire a local panga like Hidalgo Sportfishing - it is cheaper and supports the locals. You get great opportunity to fish with the full attention of a local captain who really knows the hot spots.

The sun is bright and the weather is beautiful. Message the captains before booking and understand what style of fishing they do, such as trolling, jigging, stick baits, drifting live bait. I like to have options and a captain that is willing to switch things up as conditions might dictate,

Understand it is into the rainy season, so the weather and waves can be rough. Still big fish to be caught.

Full day is best to get out as far as you need to fish for the big fish. Bathe yourself in sunscreen!

Live bait for rooster is definitely the best, especially if you're looking for a big one ! Once done, move to popping and jigging around the rocks... soooo good !!

Remember that it's called "fishing" and not "catching" for a reason. Some days the fish just aren't there. Understand which months are best for the type of fish you're hoping to catch. If you've got specific questions, contact the respective charter contact for details. All of them seemed very willing to assist and answer any questions.

Wonderful time with the captain and crew! They have the skills and knowledge to put you right on top of the fish. Left out at 7am then on to catch bait. Near 11am we had 7 beautiful yellowfin on the deck. By 12:30 we were hooked up to a beautiful blue marlin. Sailfish we’re all around us but sadly wouldn’t take the hook. These guys will take care of your every need and keep you smiling all day. You will not be disappointed!

Jose is a hard worker for his fishing guests. On a day when the fish were not hitting well, he worked hard to get an Amberjack for my grandson. It is an unforgettable memory. I highly recommend Jose.

Very professional! The service was amazing. Kramer is meticulous and very fast to react to any fish catching on the lines. The captain, Javier, was also very knowledgeable and took us only where the big fish were! The breakfast and lunch were fresh as well. We enjoyed our family trip and it was the best way to celebrate my birthday. Book them !!!

Captain Jeff was off for the day, so his first mate Flaco and deckhand Jose took us out! We are both very experienced fishing on the ocean at home, so we wanted a crew who would get us into the fish- and these two didn’t disappoint! The dynamic between the two was fantastic, and we got into 5 tuna and 2 sailfish!

Great day on the water with Captain Jose and Erik, even with no fish! Tito is truly a good person who cares about the satisfaction of his clients. He knows the waters well and he tried his best for us to catch any of the elsuive species we were targeting. I hope Tito and Erik continue to catch monsters and show people a great time!
