Went fishing on Monday, March 13, 2017

March is not the ideal time of the year to fish in PV but Cpt. Pete found fish and we caught fish while boats around us were left wondering what they were doing wrong.  The tuna were all nice sized.  In addition to catching some excellent fish we also got some up close photos of whales.  I recommend Cpt. Pete and the Dos Amigos to anyone looking for a great day of fishing.  Christian, the mate also makes a killer ceviche.

William
first thanks for fishing with us and taking the time to write a review.  We use all our means such as Terrifin, moon phase and tides to help clients catch the fish of their dreams but sometimes the water does not cooperate or the fish.  We are the number one boat for catching trophy fish here in Puerto Vallarta.
Thank you again
Capt. Pete

Went fishing on Sunday, December 27, 2015

Well it looked like it was going to be a crappy day.  It rained most of the day and I don’t think the sun come out one time.  I will give the crew credit.  They stuck with the mission at hand regardless of the weather.  I was getting pretty depressed as we neared the end of our 8 hour fishing trip with zero activity.  Down to the last 30 minutes and we landed a 102” sailfish.  Exactly what I asked for that morning.  I was a little disappointed that captain Pete wasn’t on board.  I was looking forward to hearing his story and honestly the American captain was part of what lured me to his boat.  But never the less, his crew did great, they stuck with it till the end and got me what I asked for.  Great job guys.

Everything was great, most of my party got sick, so Captain Pete was more than happy to turn it into a sightseeing cruise. He was great, a lot of fun and plenty of great stories. Would book with him again.
