Background
Captain Taco Perez has been mastering the waters of South Florida since the mid 70’s. He fished for Jacks, Tarpon, and whatever else patrolled the canals and Intracoastal waterways. Taco’s first boat was a 25’ Open Fisherman, aboard which he explored the Ft. Lauderdale coast. Taco gained as much information as possible from local anglers, perfected his cast, and tried various techniques and fishing methods. Before he knew, people began asking him about fishing! Taco’s repertoire is not limited to the waters of South Florida. He has fished all over Mexico, Venezuela, St. Thomas, and Turk, as well as the Bahamas. He has successfully taken part in various fishing competitions, including the Bahamas Blue Marlin tournament. Now, Captain Taco has his own charter business and he is loving every minute of it.

We were supposed to be a party of 3, they surprised us with a party of 6. Reeling the fish with the fishing poles anchored to the boat was ridiculous.

Yvan I’m sorry you found your fishing experience disappointing.
The 2 rods that are usually left in the rod holders are our planner rods and due to the pressure the planners put on the rods as the boat is moving ahead at about 5 to 6 knots we have to use a little heaver rods and they are really not designed to be used standing up but all the same I wish you would had mentioned it to us and we would have gladly allowed you to stand and reel them in.
As far as others aboard with you during your fishing trip I believe you might have accidentally read the fishing packages wrong on (Fishing Booker) you signed up for a shared charter at $150 per person a privit 4 hour charter is $600 and you could have come with 3 or even up to 6 had you had a privit charter.
All of our shared charter will have 3 to 6 passengers aboard.
All the same I hopped you could have enjoyed the trip more than you did.
Thanks for bring all this to our attention so in the futhure I should give our anglers the choice of sitting behind the bigger rods or standing up to do their battle with the fish.

Went fishing on Monday, May 7, 2018

Enjoyed the boat which was clean, air conditioned & plenty of soace for food, drink & the 6 of us. I ranked equipment down because although we had 6 fishermen we had on two actual poles as I won’t count the 2 on the outriggers which weren’t hardly touched the whole day. We caught 12 King Mackerel all in the first 2 hours & didn’t really have the chance to evel hold a pole for the most part the rest of the day when they switched to 1 electric reel & pole. We had a great time but I think had we each been able to hold our own poles & land our own fish (or at least get it up to the boat) we ALL would have enj9yed the trip more.

We had a fantastic morning trip with Lou and his crew.  The boat was great, equipment top notch and the crew was very helpful.  We caught some great fish which Lou Filleted and we had cooked at a great local restaurant they recommended.  Thanks for creating some great memories, we will be back.  Highly recommend these guys.

We went out and first immediately caught numerous King Mackerel,
Then some quick Bottom fishing catching a few Red Tail Snapper.
We then tried some Shark Fishing, after a short time we hooked up too and reeled in a 9 ft, 300 lb Silky Shark. It was a amazing Day. Great Captain, Great First mate, Great boat.
Everything was 1st Class.
Thank you for a once in a lifetime day for my son and I !!!

What a great day out on the water with a fine crew, Capt Taco and Lou were great. This father-son team is very experienced and know their stuff. They were great for my first ever deep sea fishing trip! I was a little scared going in this whole experience but just hours later I was having the best time ever! My arms were burning from reeling in 5 fish, beat my boss and couldn’t stop laughing, just a really really great time.

If you are considering giving deep sea fishing a try get on the water with these guys! You will have fun!

Taco is very knowledgeable and honest. He makes sure that my fishing trip across the state of FL is worth every penny. I would recommend him to all skill levels. I look forward to my next trip.
