You need to let people know what fish they can fishing for on each trip 4 hr., 6 hr., 8hr. & 10 hr.
We wanted to go for sailfish & Marlin but the capt. said we would have to do a 10 hr. trip. Everyone that did not go was expeting us back after 6 hrs. so we could not go after the fish we wanted to.

It was us and 5 of our kids. The captain and mate never said one word for 4 hours when they said sorry we are taking you back after catching just one fish. Then we had to look up our emails to show proof we paid for 6 hours. Didn’t make any difference they were so irritated they are their lunch while we just sat there in disbelief! Didn’t even to tell us we were at the dock and to get out. Shame the kids were so looking forward to it. One broken pole and then line got tangled with the other while trolling its no wonder we didn’t catch anything.

Hello Mrs. Multari, first of all, I would like to apologize, i’m sorry things happened that way. I can assure you we are looking into the matter, we will check our fishing record books and talk to our captains.

Yesterday our customer support center tried calling you without luck, we´ll continue trying until we get a chance to talk directly to you.

We were expecting to go “deep sea” fishing.  We booked that based on the choices of bank fishing or deep sea fishing.  We ended up fishing about 1/4 - 1/2 mile off shore.  I asked about fishing for marlin, tuna, sailfish etc. and I was told that would cost an extra $200 if we wanted to do that as it would be an 8 our trip instead of the 6 hour trip that we booked.  We won’t be booking with them again.

We call the 3 big jack fish in the first1 hour it was like 30 to 35 pounds each, one of them and the boat is really comfortable, we fell asleep during the trolling. We didn’t catch anything doing the trolling, but we had a good time and we had a comfortable boat. We appreciate it and we gave our fish to captain.

Let’s be clear by starting out with the understanding that this fishing trip is actually “trolling”.

The crew was polite and accommodating and did their best to put us on the fish, however, it just wasn’t meant to happen. We caught a bonito and a small yellowfin. It just wasn’t a good fishing day. It happens and anyone who fishes knows this.

My biggest recommendation/complaint is to make sure that you are prepared to pay the balance of the trip in cash (or pesos). Paying the balance on your credit card leads to an interaction with a not so pleasant high pressure real estate salesman who will stop at nothing (and promise you everything) to wrangle you into a visit to a local timeshare meeting.

Couldn’t have asked for a greater first time on the open ocean with Captain Hugo. Our day started a little after seven for our eight hour day including myself, wife and my cunado. Captain Hugo’s 33ft Blackfin vessel had no problem accommodating us not to mention getting us quickly around with two twin diesel engines. We went a good ways off shore in search of Tuna and quickly became sea sick, which I recommend to take motion sickness pills before going on any offshore trip and stay away from tequila the night before. Captain Hugo still had us catching fish on our way in search of calmer water’s, he made us an AMAZING Ceviche dish while we traveled. We approached our new hunting grounds with reels out in the water in hopes of sailfish. Captain Hugo’s professionalism and maintaining his vessel cleanliness was outstanding to me.  His Penn fishing reels were just as maintained as I would soon get to put them to the test. Captain Hugo was very informative of the area we were fishing and kept our hopes high while his first mate piloted the boat, which his navigational skills were Superior as our seasickness faded away. The vessals exterior seating was quite comfortable as well as the weather was cloudy so we didn’t need to be in the air conditioned cabin.  Suddenly the moment we all had been waiting for the drag started peeling off one of his large Penn reels and you could seen in the distance a large silver fish leaping fully out of the water. Captain Hugo was saying we had a Marlin on the line, which he jumped in to action to the get the proper equipment ready to handle the Marlin. Within ten minutes of reeling the fish in the fighters chair we had him close to the boat, before I knew it Capt Hugo had the fish up to the boat bill in hand and his first mate was on the scene to pull this giant over. Largest fish of my life at 95 inches and over 150 Pounds Striped Marlin with not one error in bringing in the fish. I also decided what better then to have the fish forever so Captain Hugo had the fish mounted for me. Can’t wait to have it on my wall!!
Thank You for an awesome day on the water Captain Hugo, can’t wait for my next trip!!!!

We went out for 4 hours on Lucky 1. They picked us up right by our hotel on the boat and we went out from there which was great.  I had read other reviews that said the captain would adjust the experience based on your expectations so I told the captain we just wanted to catch some fish because we had some first time anglers. Well I guess not this captain. We spent the whole trip trolling around for trophy fish that we didn’t catch in dead silence because there was no music and the crew did not engage with us at all. We got skunked and it turned out to be a $250 boat ride nap for 4. Over all the communication leading up to the trip was great, the boat was nice, but I’d want a better crew.

It didn’t take long for us to hook some small barracuda and Spanish mackerel. After a couple hours we changed bait and hooked some Jack Caravel.

They even dropped us off at a diierent spot.

7am trip booked with Captain Victor and Crewmember Manny. Booked for 4 adults and teenager. Boat was very clean and in excellent shape. Started the morning catching Bonita for bait and then went after Jack. Lucky enough to land 2 trophy fish for mounts. Measured for mounts from Greys Taxidermy and filleted fish for us to take back to chef at hotel. They also told us they can prepare at lil cafe on dock for you as well. If was a short walk from Velas Vallarta about 15 minutes in safe area. Crew was fabulous and funny. Recommend these guys.

Th captain was knowledgeable and professional!
All morning we caught fish closer to the shore and then we got two big ones away from sore.
He knew how to get close to where the birds were feeding on sardines and then throw in the lure for the big fish that feed on sardines.
We caught two big ones that looked like tuna, but were told that are in the same family.
Very nice experience, definitely coming back again.
You cannot go wrong with lucky1.

This was an amazing experience! We ended up being an hour late because my phone changed the time zone and my alarm went off an hour later but the staff was very understanding! The crew-Octavio and Manuel were great with our 2 boys (8 and 9) and knew the good spots to catch fish, the boys were excited because they were catching them one after the next. Then we used the smaller fish we caught for bait and caught a couple of good sized Jacks (my arms still hurt). Next time I will book the 6 hours and take advantage of seeing las animas and Los arcos as it’s only a little more it an amazing experience! Will definitely book my next trip through them though

We had a successful trip. It started out slow trolling the bay with only one little Bonito to show, but around La Cruz we found a school of Bonito that hit our lines every time that we put them in the water. Giovanni said that was the warm up, so we headed towards the center of the bay while Enrique the first mate made ceviche on the spot with some of the Bonito that we just caught. We spotted something stirring the water and circled around when something big hit on 2 of our lines at the same time. They put up a good fight and we reeled in 2 good sized Jack Caravel; then another, and another one. We got a little break to enjoy the ceviche and beer; then it was back on with another strike,another Jack, and a little while later another one, 6 total. 12 Bonito. Not bad. It sure beats working! The crew was great.

It was a great trip. We caught 4 Jacks, 2 mackerels and a Skip Jack. We used the Mackerel and Skip Jack on the way back to make fresh ceviche. The capatain was great and we stayed out a little longer than normal time. On the way back we saw a swarm of birds and went over to it and caught our last two jacks which really put the day over the top. Would definietly go again and recommend this site for ease of booking and meeting up with captain.

During a recent stay in Puerto Vallarta my girlfriend and I spent a 1/2 day fishing with captain Octavio and his first mate. They were friendly, hard working and whipped up a killer ceviche with some of the fresh Bonitas we caught. We were happy to catch fish, see a few groups of dolphins and just be out on the water on a beautiful sunny day. Special thanks goes to Victor for being very proactive, helpful and accommodating.

i booked this charter for a half day rooster trip. im not very familiar with the area but i am an avid fisherman that fishes all over the world. after the day before was supposed to be a marlin trip the crew never rigged for marlin no heavy tackle no leaders i was already beginning to doubt the capability for targeting specific fish. but i let it go my wife was having a blast catching jacks so i didnt want to ruin her fun. but the rooster fish was my dream catch. and again the crew let me down. they took me to the middle of the bay and trolled for more jacks. at this point i was to upset and just wanted to head to the dock. i should have done more homework. but on the upside if you are just wanting to catch whatever this is the boat to be on Raul will keerp you hooked up all day.

on the upside if you would like to catch a bunch of jacks and have a great work out catching fish then you would like the Black Run and there crew. but if you a more serious fisherman you might want to look else where. they are more concearned about putting fish in ther boat than rigging correct . i have fished for these many years.they put me in the middle of the bay on my rooster trip. iasked if we were over a rock pile because the used no depth or fish locator the entire trip. i know rooster like rocky areas. they said no we just want to catch me some fish. it was obvious i was dissapointed and just had them take me to shore. entire fishing trip a bust. but my wife had a blast catching local fish capt. Roul did put us on fish just not the fish i paid for.Overall not the worst trip ive ever been on

I had an experience with a hard working, experienced Captain Raul and Co-Captain Gemanee in a well maintained Panga. The effort of the crew to create a targeted effort to catch fish was excellent and appreciated. No pelagic species were available though I thought some may have been possible when booking.

The trip was highlighted with two rooster fish, 46” & 48”. We also targeted jack crevalle and landed several of the hard fighting fish.

Our boat captain Victor Nava was experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly. He greeted us on his boat with beverages and a friendly smile. He provided excellent gear and all the bait we needed to fish for our 4 hour slot. Unfortunately, the fish were not biting even though they were jumping like crazy. We ended up catching one skipjack tuna that Victor made into an EXCELLENT fresh ceviche. The experience couldn’t of been any better, except catching more fish (but that’s how fishing goes sometimes). I would definitely recommend this boat, captain and company to a friend!

My husband and I booked a private, 4 hour fish while in PV.

The crew and skipper were very friendly. The price was great at $200 US for the two of us and the boat and tackle we’re well maintained.

We didn’t catch anything; but that’s fishing! But I would say we spent quite a long time trying to catch on hook before switching to live bait. Quite a bit longer than most charters we’ve fished throughout the area.

But the coast line was great views, the crew was great, and we’d book again…. just maybe in better season.

The day didn’t start when Jesus our assigned skipper failed to show.  Within a half hour Victor was on board and ready to go after his brother who’s name I regrettably can’t remember because he went out of his way to work with the boats owner and Victor to make things come together.

The boat owner reduced our charter fee and extended the charter to compensate us for the inconvenience.

Victor was a knowledgeable and skilled guide.  Fishing wasn’t what we had hoped for but Victor managed to get us a strike by an amberjack.  I’ve fished with many guides in Mexico and Victor rankes in the top two for knowledge, skill, enthusiasm and friendliness.
