Background
Captain Yoan Alvarez was born in Cuba in 1976 and has over 30 years of fishing experience. Having first learnt to fish with his grandparents, who took him to the local ponds in Cuba to fish for Tilapia with a stick and some string, he has always been on the search for new fishing adventures. This passion brought him to Florida in 2002, and he hasn’t looked back since. With well over a decade’s experience studying, fishing, and succeeding in these waters, he is now a well-known and respected captain both locally and nationwide, and his several large sponsors are proof of his success and talent. What makes him unique as a charter captain is his strong attention to detail and his desire and ability to meet the needs of his clients.

Really great experience!  Captain Yoan is friendly and knowledgeable, with a patient demeanor helping my young son catch fish as well.  Catching Peacock Bass was a new and unforgettable experience for me.  If you haven’t caught Peacocks before, book a trip today, you won’t regret it.

My 17 year old son and I had an awesome morning with Yoan, whose tireless patience and great anecdotes only made the fishing that much better.  I had dreams about this trip for days afterward?  Throwing a giant topwater plug for Peacock Bass (with about 15% accuracy, sorry Captain) I was treated like royalty, with respect, humor and great results.  My son manned the shiner rod and also had great results, but for him it was also about the giant iguanas (maybe 100 over the course of the morning) that greeted us in each little canal.  I’ve been reading about Peacock Bass fishing all my adult life and this exceeded all of my (high) expectations.  Would recommend it to anyone.  10 out of 10.

We had so much fun with Yoan! Honestly, we couldn’t have had a better experience! He was an amazing captain and teacher! He was pleasant and went above and beyond! I highly recommend him to the experienced fisherman and to those that have none! We also caught tons of fish and he stayed out until we met the amount he set for the day!

Today was an unforgettable experience with Capt. Yoan Alvarez! From the quality of fishing down to the service of the captain, I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to experience peacock bass fishing. The boat was very clean and high quality gear is provided. Yoan provides a great service, the pictures are very accurate on what you will experience when you come on a trip with him, we will definitely be booking again when we are back in the area. Thanks for a great day Yoan!

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I booked the trip. I never fished for peacock bass. Captain Yoan taught me how to flip for peacock bass with great patience (I’m not the most skillful fisherman). We were sight fishing and the fish weren’t cooperating. Despite this, I still caught a fair number including a 8 lb 3 oz peacock. This is a fish of a lifetime! The boat and equipment is world class. The captain a true professional. I immediately called a friend and we are planning a 3 day return trip! These plans were made in the parking lot! My only problem is that once people find the quality of this captain’s ability, it will be impossible to get booked with him. The fact that I will be returning, should be enough of a recommendation.

Prior to my first trip with Captain Yoan Alvarez, I had never used a professional guide. Yoan absolutely EXCEEDED all of my expectations. He is the very definition of PROFESSIONAL. His boat and equipment are well suited for the task, and his fishing knowledge is second to none. Captain Yoan provided both casting and spinning equipment and can accommodate all skill levels from beginners to professionals. Captain Yoan is also bilingual, so communication will never be an issue. The numbers and quality of fish on our peacock bass trip was unbelievable.  We caught fish on live bait, top water and lipless cranks. If you find yourself in South Florida, I urge you to look no further than Professional Hooker Fishing Trips.  You will receive top notch hospitality on the water, catch plenty of fish, and develop a long lasting relationship with the Captain.  I am eagerly awaiting our next adventure on the water in December!

My brother and I had a great day on the water with Captian Yoan. His boat and his equipment was very nice we were very satisfied. Captain Yoan put us on the fish. We used 5 dozen shiners in about 4 hours. I will be back to Florida in July and can’t wait to go out with Captian Yoan again.

Roughly 5 years ago I booked a trip to fish South Florida and Yoan was my guide. Since then I’ve been back every year and always fish at least a few days with him. He’s a knowledgeable fisherman and a great guy. My friends and I regularly keep in touch with him throughout the year and consider him one of the boys now. Theres a lot of guides out there and believe me some need to find another profession however Yoan is not that guy. We will be seeing him again in a couple months and can’t wait. -tightlines
