Went fishing on Thursday, September 15, 2016

We were blessed to have chosen Blue Sky as our yaht on our first family fishing excursion. “Best Day Ever” describes what our day was like. About 1.5 hours into our trip my wife Liz caught the first catch of the day, pretty god size tuna. Thereafter it was catch after catch ... Ended up with 3 Tunas and 3 Mahi Mahi’s. Captain Juan was amazing and his crew of two attendants, Julio and Mario were phenomenal. I highly recommend Blue Sky to anyone out there seeking a deep sea fishing trip to anyone.
Blessings to all.. The Garza and Ceoeda family.

We had 4 adults and 5 teenagers, so keeping everyone happy was hard to do. But with Capt Juan, Mario and Julio, WOW. they exceeded expectations with keeping everyone involved, and keeping them happy. And we even caught our first Marlin. so what a wonderful experience and I guarantee we will do it again.

The boat was fantastic we had allot of people (16) and it was more than enough boat for our crew.  The crew was excellent (Eddy was great) the chef and other guys were great.  The owner of the boat Jim was a great guy and I wish I had jest dealt with him alone.  The problem was the captain of the boat was not a nice a person at all and turned the trip from lemonade into lemons.  First off someone in our party inadvertently cracked a piece of the wind shield on the boat and the captain within a second yelled at us that just cost you an additional $300!!  It was like we committed a felony the way he approached it.  That that was not the way he should have handled it and who knows where he came up with $300 at that point he should have just been quite and handled it at the end of the trip.  Unfortunately that was not the last incident with him at the end of the trip he tried to rip us off twice, once for not recognizing our original deposit then he tried to double dip us on the tip.  The other thing we did not like is they made us pay all in cash, they need a credit card option for something like this.  I would have rated this a ten out of ten had it not been for the captain of the boat.  We did not catch a fish which was mildly disappointing but that is not the crews fault (I think we were out of season).  I will recommend the charter but not the captain and they need a credit card option.  Deal with the owner and the owner alone.

We just had the best experience with Captain Jim’s screw on the Blue Sky. We had an all day charter fishing for Marlin and just cruising around Cabo. We got off to a little later start (which Jim was happy to accommodate) and cruised by El Arco on the way out. Then we sent out in search of the Marlin. The crew was very experienced at “hunting” fish, as they like to call it. We’d always have some troll lines out, and they would use binoculars to search for fins in the water. I was at first somewhat skeptical of this method, but less than an hour on the boat and we pulled up right next to two marlin sunning in the water with their fins sticking out (the captain had spotted these from quite a distance away). It didn’t take long and we had one Marlin on the boat and another that got off the line. We saw several humpback whales while out which was another unexpected treat! After some time fishing we decided to cruise towards the shore and take a taxi in to the beach for some drinks and hanging out. When we got back on the Blue Sky, the crew had prepared the best fresh ceviche with our catch! The day was absolutely perfect. I strongly recommend getting the hostess on board. She made the trip much more enjoyable! Our entire group cannot wait to get back down to Cabo to make it out Captain Jim’s Blue Sky again!

Thank you Michael - we were ecstatic that your group landed and released a marlin for this special charter.  We hope to have your group back real soon.

What a day we had! Amazing for sure! One thing is sure, we’ve been fishing on THE BEST boat in Cabo San Lucas. It is a high class yacht, huge one and super comfortable. Captain Jim was amazing all day long and crew was there to support all of us! This is an unforgettable day for all of us and we’re thankful for that!

Highly recommend this charter to anyone!

WOW! If you’ve ever been thinking about fishing in Cabo, this boat and crew are MUST do! I’ve been in touch with owner Capt. Jim from the beginning and we had great communication. Arranged everything, set expectations and everything was ready to be delivere. Oh, they did it great! I was super excited and even more after the fishing. Jim was accommodating, knowledgeable and probably the best Captain I fished with so far. Highlight are two Marlin and a Mako Shark! We released all the fish we caught because we like it that way and Jim supported us. The boat is well maintained, clean and reaaal beuaty. Not to forget how big the boat is.

I suggest you not to look for something else, book with Capt. Jim!

The boat was quite nice but we didn’t catch any fish so it spoiled the day. The interaction with the captain and the first mate was limited since they kept pretty much to themselves. I feel that communication could have been little better thy should talk about what are they doing and why.
To be fair we did star late that day so this might have ruined our chances, but again we switched lures just one time and we bought bunch of live bait but used only about a quarter of it.
I think that both captain and mate just didn’t have a good day. But all in all a lousey fishing

Chase Pulliam does not recommend Captain Jim’s Fishing - Blue Sky
