Other boats caught marlin and sailfish. We released just one sailfish.

First bite of the day, 3! On at once. Caught 16 fish. The 1st mate was super he was very good and helpful. I would highly recommend fishing with this crew. It was worth every cent. AWESOME

Nothing exiciting, very slow day in shore. Captain and mate were great. Just a slow day. All the locals warned me but we went inshore rooster fishing anyway. We caught 4 keeper mackerel and some small tuna. GO OFFSHORE if you want to really catch fish…

Miguel responded to a last minute request when another boat couldn’t confirm our date, so we were happy to take his booking.  He is a friendly guy and was able to get us set up with the boat and captain/crew at the last minute. We did catch fish (one nice Rooster and a few Bonito) when it looked like other boats in the area were not having any luck. The Captain Fabio and mate Jimmy were friendly enough, but didn’t explain what we would be doing, or where we would be fishing.  No “tour guide” information was provided either - we had maybe a total of 10 minutes of conversation during a half day trip.

The boat seemed to be set up more for offshore, and less for inshore.  All rod set-ups were Penn lever drag reels on short rods that were in pretty bad shape.  Laminations on the rods that were set out was cracked and worn, guides were corroded and line on reels looked to be in need of replacement. The reels were pitted and corroded, but cranked OK, and the drags seemed to be smooth. 

We spent about 90% of the time trolling rock formations for Rooster, then the last 10% switched to spoons trolled over shallows and hit a couple schools of Bonito for a few fish.

I would have enjoyed casting to river mouths, mangrove patches and rock piles as well as the Rooster trolling technique - 5 hours is a long time to circle the same few rock formations.  The crew mentioned that the previous day they had 6 sailfish - I think that this is probably a good indication that they should be used for offshore, not inshore.

Good crew and. Sturdy boat. We only boated 2 fish . Wish we would have spent more time looking for birds instead of trolling and looking. But overall a good charter for the money.

Had a great time, but fishing was slow. Only got one sailfish. Great captain and mate. Have fished with Blue Fin 5 times and each time was a good trip.

This father and son team knows what they are doing. We definitely outfperformed the many other boats in the area. Several began crossing in front or behind us. Coindidence?  As we were somewhat “amateurs” at this type of fishing (father and 3 40 something sons), they were terrific in guiding us, maneuvering the boat and helping ensure we brought in the strikes, which we did. A totally friendly and enjoyable outing.
We would absolutely use them again.
