Captain
Felipe Valdez

Member since December 2018 La Ventana, Mexico
Background
I grew up in a fishing lodge that my dad started in 1970, so fishing has been natural to me. We have dedicated ourselves to fishing for more than 40 years. I have had the privilege of living by the Sea of Cortez all my life. Besides just being our business, fishing has been my passion since I was a kid. I started fishing by hand from the beach, until I became a surf fishing guide – that you could say is my first expertise, but I've been doing fishing on boats since forever, until now that I have my own boat. I was fortunate enough to be trained by the best fisherman of the region, and have also been trained in customer service to focus on what fishermen need. My language skills help me communicate all the needs to my clients so they can have a successful and memorable day.
Techniques
I could say Im an overall fisherman, from trolling, to kite fishing, jigging, live bait trolling and drifting. Myself I prefer mostly artificial like Jigging and popping. This waters give the opportunity to try for all kind of techniques.
