Poor experience.  While I understand that we were in Mexico, there was poor English skills of the 2 crew members.  Thet spoke almost exclusively between them and gave us very little feedback. As this was the first time that we went fishing in the ocean it would have been nice to have better expectations given us as to what the roles of us were.  We also had 2 children with us (11 / 10).  They, really did not have any knowledge of this type of fishing.  Not happy with trip.  Caught 1 fish over 6 hours for 300.00.

Friendly crew, scenic trip to Yelapa, saw some whales.  Wanted to target roosterfish and Mahi but were told we needed to add few more hours at the start which was a surprise.  I spoke with the boat administrator Victor the day before re: my target fish and he didn’t mention the need to add more time.  Crew seemed interested in catching only marlin despite telling them our kids just wanted to catch any fish.  They told us we would be doing the fishing at the start but were very disappointed the crew did almost all of the fishing.  Caught only 2 fish, a 19” Spanish mackerel and a small bait fish in 6 hours by trolling, we reeled in those 2 but firstmate did all the casting going for some mackerels & Jacks but he didn’t have any luck.  Would have been nice if he offered to let us cast a line.  One of my sons never got to touch a fishing pole as we did virtually no fishing, just trolling for hours on end and basically sight-seeing.  Maybe with more luck and more time with rods in hand I would consider this crew again…

It was an amazing trip! Our fabulous guides Captain Paco and First mate Gambino new the spots to find the fish. Caught the A fish within the first hr which was a 35-45 jack crevalle. Both were really knowledgeable of the waters and surrounding areas with a ton of experience. We were fortunate enough to see dolphins, whales, manta rays and sea turtles! Will definitely book this trip again and recommend to friends.

Captain victor and his mate Eric killed it for us. We limited out on Spanish mackerel, Bonita, and blue runners on March 18th, and then Thursday the 22 we chartered them for mahi. While we didn’t find mahi we landed two monster marlin weighing 250lbs +. I’ve been fishing my entire life and this was some of the best I’ve done, but remember it’s fishing not catching. These guys know their stuff, know the spots, and will work their asses off for you to catch. Patience and skill are a big part of big game fishing. Have fun all and hope this review helps!

Hello Mr Kelley! Im sorry you did not catch the species you were looking for. We dont guarantee catching any kind of fish, there is no way on earth that we can guarantee that. About the equipment, we use shimano on every single charter we have, if you didnt see any life vests or snorkel equipment is because they are kept out of deck, you could easily trip over if they were on deck. Im attaching ya quick quiz you voluntarily filled expressing satisfaction with your fishing trip and the photo of the Yellowfin tuna you caught.

I apologize if the crew was not able to catch what you were looking for but there is a reason it is called fishing and not catching.

The overall fishing experience was average. After confirming our pick up location and time via text and by phone with someone the day prior to our charter, the boat was over an hour late in picking us up. They didn’t call me to say they were going to be late, I had to call to see where they were. The crew was friendly and courteous. They did make ceviche wish our catch while on the boat, which was delicious. I would have given them a higher rating if it wasn’t for them being late. Plus, they should have reached out to me and not me to them in regards to them being late.

Our Captain kept his eye out so even though we didn’t catch fish we saw a pod of whales, some dolphins, a stingray, and sea turtles. It was a pleasurable ride.. only wish that the fish were biting.

The boat and equipment were all excellent. The captain and mate were among the best Ihave fished with. They were both bilingual, pleasant, and very accomidating. They did their best to get us onto some fish. I met with the owner before the trip. He was also bilingual, pleasant and proffesional.  When I told him that I did not care where or how we fished and that my only concern was that the crew got me onto the fish and allowed me to do the fishing. He was also accomidating. However, he failed to tell me that the area available to half day trip is basically fished out. While traveling in at the end of the trip, the captain said that if I really wanted to catch fish we needed to travel further from port. If I had been aware of this fact,before the trip, I would have spent the extra for a full day trip. As it was, I had a bad day of fishing and wasted my money!

My fiancé and his friend had a great time with Eddy and Octavio. My fiancé caught a Mahi Mahi and drank beers while fishing! They saw lots of whales and dolphins too. They really want the captain to make ceviche with the fish though and had asked about it multiple times and they still did not make it. That was a little disappointing. But overall they had a great time.

I had an awesome day fishing on the Lucky 2 with the captain and Manny the deckhand. They both spoke English very well. They worked very hard to help me hook a boat limit of mahi-mahi and black marlin. We were sad to kill the marlin, but it was bleeding badly from being hooked deep in the throat. One of my most memorable deep sea trips.

We went fishing all the way to the south end of the bay and did some trolling.
We trolled north across the bay sometimes with up to 4 rods and saw two Sea Turtles, 2 Gray Whales breaching the water, a Sail Fish with it’s dorsal fin above the water and a few Dolphins near the hotel strip. Gabby used live bait and and tried many lures and was unable to get a bite or catch anything. He tried virtually everything he had at his disposal. Unfortunately no fish but did see lots of aquatic life. Gabby dropped us off at our hotel beach with the Lucky 2 boat.
Good trip with 4 other guys but would have been better if we caught some fish. Crew was on time and ready to go by 7:00 am. They supplied beer and water for all of us.
I would recommend this trip to others.

Even though we were skunked, it wasn’t due to lack of effort from the captain or crew.  They tried every trick they knew but they just weren’t biting today.  Did have a couple of Mahi bites but no hookups.  I would definitely use them again.  I recommend this company with no reservations!

Took at 8hr trip in hopes of landing a sailfish and some Mahi Mahi. Trip to and from fishing spot will take an hour each way, so you’ll get 6hrs fishing.  Boat did not have/use fish finder (Details of boat said it does) so it was old school, looking for birds and trolling for 6 straight hours.  Took 5hrs to hook up on one and only fish of the day (Mahi Mahi).  As far as that goes, I think a fish finder and a little more experience would land more fish.  The one Mahi Mahi we did catch, we used half and the Mate worked his butt off and made some great Ceviche.  Was scared to try it, but we did and loved it.  Saw some tutles, dolphins, and had a big Hammer Head swim up next to boat.  Overall fun time, but again there needs to be more done to land more fish.

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.

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.

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!!!!

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.

We booked a 6 hour trip, Victor suggested adding 2 more hours, no sales pressure involved, everything went so well we made it a 10 hour day. So happy we did, 11 yellowfin tune , 1 Bonita, and 2 carevelle, an absolutely awesome day, we will definitely book the same boat and request the same crew when we come back.

They picked us up close to or hotel. They asked us what we wanted to do and our expectations. We just wanted to catch fish not looking for marlin or sailfish.

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.

Thanks guys.

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.
Thank you for a memorable experience with my two sons in law and my grandson.

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.

The captain and crew went above any beyond what was expected.  The fishing was slow and they never stoped searching areas and combinations.  They prepared fish for a snack in the afternoon.  After 5 pm, they could of taken us back but we came across feeding fish and they completely rerigged and stayed to catch four Bonito.  They worked very hard.

It was a hard 10+ hours of fishing, we caught a Mahi Mahi early on and had other on, but it got off. Next 8 hours nothing. Captain and crewman work there butts off trying to get into some fish, but it wasn’t to be. So we headed in and the captain said if he sees something we try and he did and we were able to boat 4 Bonito’s at the very end of the trip.
