Captain
Ariel Rosen

Member since January 2015 Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Background
Captain Ariel has been on a boat and on the water all his life but has only been in the charter business for 12 years. His passion comes from seeing a passenger on his boat with a big fat smile when they got that nice fish on board and showing everybody the beauty of Banderas Bay – Captain Ariel's backyard. This makes him the happiest person alive!
Techniques
Captain Ariel's favorite fishing style is going for big fish with small or light tackle. The determination you need to bring for a 100 lb Tuna on light tackle is what makes fishing exciting for him. The captain believes you need to be holding a rod when you’re fishing, not just looking at it. He also loves trolling but feels there's nothing like casting or popping for big Roosterfish or Snapper!
