I would definanlty tru out the gardi crew, do not go through the resorts. Book your own trip on fishing Booker. Weve done the resort booking in the past and never even got a bite and it seemed like the crews never tried.

Find a charter with a large enough boat to deal with rough seas. Do not go on a small vessel. The water can be rough and it makes for a bad experience if you don't have a vessel that can handle the waves.

I would suggest waiting til May or early June when the fishing is a little better. It was tough fishing but the crew will take care of you and try to give you the best experience. I wouldn't take real young kinds as even on the calmest days you are going out on the ocean it gets rocking out there. If you are a fisherman who loves being on the water you are going to love it no matter when you go.

We didn't fish Playa del Carmen it was Puerto Adventuras. Ask your hotel to arrange it then hopefully health and safety will be observed.

Patience, the weather and the sea conditions were indifferent this time of the year but there are some fantastic fish to catch, other holidays makers who we chatted to caught some huge fish.

Seaweed was an issue but other than that a great day on the beautiful waters of Playa Del Carmen.

Poor no signs of any fish, no reports from any other of the many other boats catching.
