Tough day for me and my sweetheart on the Predator. It was slow slow slow. We trolled around for most of the morning with no fish. Then Capt. Javier suggested head out 10 more miles and try for Yellowfin tuna. We each landed a tuna! Each 30# & 60# respectfully! I had the bigger of the two. Very attentube mate & Capt.

The crew was great! We wanted to catch some fish for dinner so they took us bottom fishing first. We caught 6 nice groupers, tilefish, and some scorpion fish. Tried for a black marlin got a bite but no hook up.. finished the day with a double header on sails. Landed both of them! Overall a good day and a good experience for the money.

Bite was slow but Captain Javier and his first mate worked hard to find fish. Not the biggest boat at the marina but I doubt you could find a harder working crew.

These guys are very expierenced. They even stayed out longer to try and get us some more chances at a Marlin. They are highly recommended. Gracias Amigos!

Despite less than favorable conditions we had a good day.  Early on we talked about what we wanted to do. Troll for an hour or two and then try some bottom fishing. The captain and his mate were very accommodating and friendly. We ended up with two large grouper and a bunch of various bottom fish.  Once we had enough bottom fishing we resumed trolling and brought in a nice 25+ mahi.

One of the best experiences I’ve had fishing. We ended up catching two blue Sailfish and a huge Blue Marlin. The captain and mate were so professional and yet so fun. It was a great bonding experience before my wedding.

The captain and mate on the Predator are top notch. We caught nine foot sailfish and a 11.66 foot 400 pound blue marlin. The marlin was a strong, noble fighter and battled for over an hour.  We could not have brought him to the boat without the combined skill of the captain and mate.  I highly recommend the Predator to any serious sport fisherman.

The boat was slow. We ran north of Los Suenos to make bait which took longer than it should’ve because their gear kept malfunctioning. Then ran south to fish - we left the dock at 7am and didn’t actually start fishing till 10am and had to quit at noon due to being a half day trip. We spent a week in Los Suenos and fished on other boats and noticed this boat does not get chartered very often and I can see why after our experience

Mister Stephens, let me clear you something that you don’t know.
- First you can’t go really fast when you go inshore fishing you going in shallow water.
- catch the live bait is part of your “half day” of fishing.
- you talking about gear, we have 3 more spinning road on board I don’t see any problems if one off.
- your “half day” fishing was great you catching 2 beautiful ROOSTERFISH, 25 pounds and 15 pounds and two big needle fish. Is my answer about you say you talk with the others guys about we don’t catch many fish.
- Your wife and daughter look happy in this pictures.
- A real fisherman know what iam talking about, iam sorry if you don’t know.  Many fisherman wish a “half day” fishing like you have it.
Your review don’t affect ours reputation.

Great crew and a solid boat.  Day 1 was tough but they didn’t give in.  Day 2 was solid with 3-for-3 on sails, 1-for-2 on marlin.

Can’t say enough about this crew. On a very slow day on the water they were able to raise and leader a Pacific Sailfish and a estimated 300 lb Blue Marlin.  My first blue ever…made my day. I highly recommend the Predator…
