Cozumel, Mexico

Background
I was born into a fishing family and have been fishing since I was 8 years old. I've had a captain's license for 15 years and love to be out on the water showing guests a good time! I am an honest guy who doesn't like to tell my guests they're going to catch something unrealistic when it's out of season, but I will always use all my experience, effort and skills to get them to fish.
Techniques
Trolling with a variety of artificial lures and live and frozen bait (usually Ballyhoo). If you like we can also offer bottom fishing with spinning rods and reels to target species such as Grouper and Snapper, although we mainly troll.

Went fishing on Monday, January 9, 2017

The fishing boat and crew is everything you expect.  The crew was very professional once they got there.  We showed at the dock at 7 am; however without telling us the Captain changed the time to 7:30 or at least this was what we where told in our call to him.  After several more calls the Captain finally showed at 8:40 am.  You are not allowed to fish on this boat, you side the and if there is bit on line captain will set it and hand it to you.  So this is called a reeling trip not a fishing trip.  Last thing, no matter what is says on the web site they will not take your Credit Card.  Because of this I had to pay additional $60 to get the cash.  No photo because no catch.

Dear Steven thank you for the comment for us all are important.

When the marine authorities close the port due to weather conditions no boat can leave. We always informed our customer as we did via e-mail one day before your fishing trip.

If the guest does not follow the recommendations provided to attend his fishing tour in an organized way is not in our hand any incidents that occur.

As a security measure we had to wait for the Marina authorities to open the port for fishing activities.

The credit card payment is in Mexican peso at the exchange rate of the day, we are not responsible for the agreements between the customer and bank in relation to a international transacción fee, which was also explained before charging.

Thanks for the comment we will attend each point to prevent future incidents.
