Good 3/4 day

December 17, 2014

It was a last-minute booking. We left the dock at 11:00 am. We ended up with 7 Mahis (one 35# female), 2 Sailfish, one small Bullshark and a Barracuda. All that within 5 miles offshore. Not too bad. Read Full Report →

Fishing equipment was top notch. Mate and captain were really kniwladegable and friendly. We got a barracuda, dorado and albacore. Unfortuneeyly we missed a marlin (my fault). Will defintely go back for that marlin on the double hook again when back in puerto rico.

Had a very nice day on the water with Cap’t Humberto on the ‘Double Hook’.  Highly knowledgeable and personable, with a well-equipped and comfortable boat.  Everything went very well, with the single exception of the lack of fish—something everyone experiences from time to time.  Would definitely recommend him.

Wonderful experience….professional, nice, fun…and we caught lots of fish.  We’ve been fishing with lots of captains in many locations and these guys rank in the top.  You will have a great time and get lots of fish.

Had our lines in the water for 10 minutes and were already on the fish. They knew right where to go and how to catch the fish. They already had ballyhoo rigs set up and were very prepared. Our boat caught enough to feed our group of 20 friends for 3 days! Very impressed and would go again if ever in San Juan.

Captain Humberto and Tony were a pleasure to go fishing with. The trip was not a positive experience for me as I got seasick about 2 1/2 hours into the day. Capt. Humberto was very accommodating and concerned about my health, he asked if I wanted to keep fishing, or turn back towards land and keep trolling, or to bring in the lines and head back to the harbour. As I was very sick I asked him to bring in the lines and head back to the harbour. I will definitely book a charter with Double Hook again and hope that I don’t get seasick again.

The boat and crew were great. Our only real complaints about the boat was that the bathroom was not very clean and when the sandwiches were made the mate didn’t wash his hands. The captain was very knowledgeable but there just weren’t any fish biting, or in the area.  None of the other boats in the area were catching anything either.  Was just a bad fishing day.  The captain stayed out an extra 40 min to give us the full 6 hours of actual fishing time but it just didn’t help. We caught one small, just barely big enough to keep, Tuna, early on and then 5 hours + with nothing but boat riding.

I am sorry Mr. Taylor about your fishing trip. Before we leave the dock I do a briffing that include safety, how to use the toilet (head), placeses to be on the boat, what we offer during the trip ect…, also it is included if you have any QUETIONS or CONCEN to let us know. None of your concern were arise during the trip other than a beautiful boat, the matte assited your friend at the time he got sea sick. The two loaf of bread were consumed along with the snaks and refreshment. As you mention it that the bite was not there and we try everything that we   do even if we were on a family fishing trip or tournament. It had happen that we have no bite during a fishing tournament. We have no contol of the migration of the species. I hope you do better on your next fishing trip. Thanks, Capt. Humberto

We having nothing but good things to say about our deep sea fishing trip.  The captain was great to work with.  We had to turn back early due to two of our people in the group getting sick but the time we spent on the ocean was great. They had drinks we requested, snacks and food waiting for us when we got to the boat.

We do not know what happen, so that was not enougt time to go marlin fishing. Thank you for your comments and I hope you do better on your next fishing trip. Capt. Humberto Perales.

Oli mukava päivä viettää merellä kalastellen sattui vielä sopivasti että SanJuanissa satoi koko päivän mutta nllä paistoi aurinko. Saalis puoli ei ollut päätä huimaava ainoastaan 1 Mahi-Mahi sekä yksi puoli tärppi valko marliinilta sekä barracudalta. Veneen henkilökunta oli erittäin ystävällistä .

Hello,
Sorry that the fish were not there for you that day. We tried everything to find the fish by using electronics and site seen. The boat have fish finder, GPS, VHS radio, tide info., and many years of experience in this waters. Is unfortunate you couldn’t cached a fish. 
Thanks for your comments and hope you do better on your next fishing trip.

Everything as promised.  Plenty of fish caught and many times we had two on at a time. Hence…Double Hook! Didn’t catch a Marlin or sailfish but a blast filling the ice box full of tuna and Mahi mahi!  They put you on the fish and what bites is a blast reeling in!

I have fished since I was a young lad and always dreamed of catching a Blue Marlin.  Captain Umberto was very knowledgeable and since we are avid boaters as well, I really enjoyed talking and learning more about Marlin fishing in the area.  Within 30 minutes of trolling, I hooked a 350-400 pounds
Marlin and it flew out of the water way behind the boat at least 5 times.  I fought it for 40 minutes before loosing her back to the sea,  but what an experience.  The seas got a bit choppy and we never hooked another one, but we will be back.

Great boat, captain and crew(Tony).  We only suggest a better way to keep toilet paper in the bathroom as you must place it in an opened bag and the smell down below was very bad.  Never the less, we will book with Double Hook again.

We had the trip of a lifetime. First catch was a dolphin that weighed at least 20 pounds followed by a tripletail…… Shortly thereafter another dolphin, then a tripletail. Then came the one that go away,,,,,, a dolphin that had my buddy working and sweating for a while until the line popped. We could see the dang thing in the water, but everytime it got close, it would run a couple hundred meters. This dolphin looked like it was nearly twice the size as the first one. But we never get him in the boat. So we have to come back, and when we do, it will be with Double Hook Charters because “They put you on the fish EVERYTIME”!!!! Thanks Captain Humberto and Tony.
