Will I get seasick?
Seasickness depends on the individual and the conditions of the sea the day you go fishing. We recommend that if you do not know if you get seasick that you take a commercial motion sickness medication. You can buy it at any pharmacy or health food store in your hometown. You may also want to use the patches that go behind the ear.
What can we expect to catch?
What you will catch depends on the season you come fishing. Please have a look at our calendar.
Do you do trolling or bottom fishing?
When you charter the boat you decide. We normally recommend a combination of the two. So if trolling is slow we pull up on the reef and let you go for groupers and snappers. However the decision is yours.
How much travel time to the fishing grounds is there?
Since hurricane Wilma in 2005, there is a perimeter in place of 5 to 10 miles of surrounding coast lines called parques nacionales and there is too many diving sites. After that there is a long sand bar, therefore, we do not recommend less than 6 hrs it will take 40 to 50 minutes each way and the travelling back and forth to fishing grounds is part of your charter.
What kind of bait do you use?
We use (Natural) mullet, ballyhoo, Bonitos and plenty of artificial lures on board, Vertical Jigs.

We will vary the baits and the gear depending on the fishing conditions or by the customers request.
