Went fishing on Monday, May 15, 2017

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.

We caught 2 huge mahi-mahi and some smaller Spanish Mackerel that my 5 year old son was able to reel in. The Caption and crew were excellent and the beer was cold.

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.

The trip was awesome.  The boat crew were very courteous and friendly. 
We had a fish on the line within 5 minutes of trolling.  Unheard of on any of my previous fishing trips for ocean fishing!

Thanks again….we will definitely call you guys in the future.

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

Had a great time with captain Victor.  Sight fishing for Jack’s was a blast. Victor put us on the schools over and over.  Only issue was had to take a big chunk of time to go into Puerto Vallarta to pay with credit card.

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.

Alysha we are glad you had a great time fishing with us, and i agree with you, we wish we had caught a big one! Thank you for your comments, we will work hard to keep improving our service. Thank you!

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.
