Ariel Rosen

Member since January 2015 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 everybody the beauty of Banderas Bay – my backyard. This makes me the happiest person alive! 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. I love trolling but there's nothing like casting or popping for big Roosterfish or Snapper!
