Member since September 2016 Cancún, Mexico
Background
My co Captain / Mate and I met 27 years ago and have been addicted to fishing since we can remember. We are living our lifelong passion and working in Cancun as Fishings Guides. We bring 50 years of combined experience of many types of fishing all over the world. We are addicted to fishing and dedicated to putting you on some fish of a lifetime! We love what we do and want to get you on some big fish!
Techniques
Here in Cancun we prefer to deep drop on the bottom for huge grouper and snapper! You're almost guaranteed to catch some fish you've never seen before! Trolling is also amazing for the seasonal sailfish, Mahi, marlin, wahoo and Black Fin Tuna. We won't be satisfied with your trip until we put you on some fish! We are committed to hauling in some serious meat!
