The captain and his first mate were excellent, very attentive and informative. Just sad that we could not catch the fish that we wanted. The fish were not biting. Overall the experience was great. Just a little boring when the fish don’t bite.

We didn’t catch any fish and still had the greatest time. Captain Ivan tried everything to find fish but nothing was biting for us or anyone else around. Pepe kept us very entertained the whole trip. The food was excellent at the beach front restaurant and the snorkeling was good, a ton of clown and angel fish all around us. We couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Skilled and friendly Captain Ivan’s and First Mate Pepe were awesome and we had ten hits and seven landed fish (30-40 pound Jack Kravelles that were fun to fight) in a short four hour onshore tour.  Highly recommended.

We had a great day on the water. Started out a little slow this morning, which of course makes the ladies that don’t fish often a little anxious. Cruz said “don’t worry amigos, we have plenty of time”. He was right because once the action started, it was exciting until the ride home. Ivan and Cruz were a first class crew. Very professional, and always made sure we were happy and having fun. I would definitely recommend this boat and crew to any family or small group wanting a day of fishing while on vacation.

Thank you Tim for the nice review. Captain Ivan and Cruz is what makes a good boat great. You said you wanted meat for the table, we provided. Enjoy the Ahi and hope you come fish with us again, Jon.

We were picked up from our hotel and brought to a great day loaded with fish often on the line. The trip was everything we were hoping it would be. If your looking for a quality experience on a quality boat without paying top dollar I would recommend Hooked Sport Fishing NV.

Mike, thank you for picking Hooked to be your fishing platform. Captain Ivan and I enjoyed the day watching dad and son compete for the biggest fish of the day. Hope we can get you out again on your next visit. Thanks again for your business, we do all we can to put our customers on fish while in a comfortable and safe boat. Glad you enjoyed your day ,nothing is better than a father/son trip for us.

Overall our experience was great. I have chartered numerous fishing trips throughout various locations in Mexico and Pepe was not only the hardest working first mate but he kept us entertained with his stories.  I saw that both Captain Ivan and Pepe worked extremely hard to put us on fish.  The booking experience was also very different than what I have done in the past and was a very nice surprise.  Very proffesional!  Overall; I would highly recommend a charter with Hooked Fishing.

They weren’t biting that day but Ivan and Pepe did their best to make sure we had a great experience. Caught a few small mackerel which Pepe used to whip up some fresh ceviche. We did see some whales.

Good day on the water. Ended up catching ten Jacks which were quite a handful cranking in. Very entertaining first mate. Caught glimpses of whales, dolphins and manta rays. Glad that we went!

This was an 8 hour high action trip and the only action we had was the rough waves and big swells. The Captian and his mate tried trolling outside the bay most of the day and then we came in to the bay the last hour to try for some smaller fish, but we did not hook one fish.  The equipment was fine and captian and mate were professional we just didn’t catch anything so that is disappointing.

We took our boys ages 6, 9, & 13 out for 6 hours which was the perfect amount of time.  Ivan & Pepe were very knowledgeable and friendly.  They made sure we were all having fun.  They worked hard to try to get us the “big one!”  The boys were each able to catch a little fish and we ended even getting a 28lb 38” Jack Crevalle.  We even got some sightseeing in.  We saw dolphins, a whale, manta rays, and a Tortuga. We had a great time and will definitely book with them again the next time we are in Puerto Vallarta.  One thing to know is that when we went in early January 2017 it was pretty chilly in the morning and we never got hot on the boat so you might want to wear a sweatshirt in the morning and possible a light long sleeve shirt.

we went the typical route not far off shore and for an 8 hour trip did not feel like we fished very hard.

All my son wanted to do was go fishing…. The crew, boat, equipment was amazing!!! They catered to all his needs and made sure he had the experience of a lifetime! It was an unforgettable trip thanks to Hooked and now my son feels he is a “professional fishing Angler”. I highly recommend Hooked and will book them everytime I return !!! Thank you

Had a great trip.  We landed 2 sails and 2 mahi and farmed a couple of other bites.  A good day was had by all.

Had a great day fishing with Hooked Sport Fishing PV during the Los Muertos Tournament. The boat was fast, getting our family to the fishing area, and fishing, before the others. Chayan and Carlos were both friendly and professional, with years of experience operating boats and fishing in the area. The boat was comfortable with plenty of seating and shade at the bow and stern and well equipped for deep sea fishing. We caught 1 Mahi Mahi.

Great Day on the water with a great crew, We caught two Sailfish unfortunately we we unable to release them so we went with the Captain and donated them to a local orphange since we could not possible eat that much fish. It was truely a great experiance.  I would hightly recommend going fishing with these guys!
