Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Background
I have been on a boat and on the water all of my life, but have only been in the charter business for 12 years . My passion comes from seeing a passenger on my boat with a big fat smile when they get that nice fish on board, and showing every body the beauty of banderas bay (my back yard) this for me makes me the happiest person alive !!!
Techniques
My favorite fishing style is going for big fish with small/light tackle. The determination that you need to bring in a 100lb Tuna on light tackle is what makes fishing exciting. I believe. You need to be holding a rod when you’re fishing, (not just looking at it ) love trolling but nothing like Castingor poping For big rooster or snappers!!!!!
