Bring a cooler if you plan to take fish home. There is an ice vending machine just outside the launch beach.

Take your catch right next door to the Beach House Bar and Restaurant and they will cook it for you. They also have an outdoor shower across from the entry for a quick rinse.

It seems to rain in the afternoon so the best time to book is morning. A half day trip should be enough to catch plenty depending on the time of year; I think mahi-mahi is best in October but check with your local guide For details.

The fishing license seems hard to do but it’s really easy and quick at the marina. 630-730am only. No English spoken but other non Spanish speakers were able to navigate it easy peasy.

Wear a rain jacket, hat and something to cover your face. It can be sunny and hot and rainy all on the same trip. The waves were high, so the sea spray will get you which is part of the adventure! Be prepared for big fish!

If you plan to bring your own terminal tackle, make sure that the captain and deckhand will allow you to use it. Also, ask about what type of fish is in season and what will you be going after during your trip such as if you would like to do a combo trip (both offshore and bottom fishing either on your way out or coming back in. ).
Very good

Bring a long sleeve shirt that’s not tight and maybe a light rain jacket if it’s rainy season. We wore both on the way back because it was stormy and raining.
