Rico - The Capt

Have you ever wondered why so many people love to go deep sea fishing? The answer is simple. These fish are usually huge, and weigh much more than the fish you can catch in freshwater. These larger sized fish can really give you a workout while your out on the water. It really does not matter if you are fishing for tuna or mahi mahi because they both put up an awesome fight. Now that we have got that out of the way lets talk about learning some tips. Experience is everything! What I mean is both your own experiences, and tips from others who have the knowledge through years of trial and error.

Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen, I can't say it enough. Even on a cloudy overcast day you can still get burned by UV rays. Wear a hat to keep the sun from beating down on your head, and make sure you keep yourself hydrated throughout the trip.

If you begin to suffer from the effects of sea sickness, it is best to try to stay on deck. Going down below will only make it worse. The closed quarters with limited air flow will only accelerate your sickness. Try to focus on the horizon as best you can and stay away from strong odors such as bait and beer until the sickness passes. I have found that taking motion sickness medications prior to the trip do help. You will also want to keep a cool, clean towel handy for your face until the nausea passes.

Getting kids hooked on fishing is a gift of immeasurable value. The best gift you can ever give a kid -- yours or someone else's -- is to get them hooked on fishing. The skills, conservation lessons, and appreciation for the outdoors that they will receive will last them a lifetime.

Are the prices for the whole boat or per person ... ?

  • Prices are for the whole boat. Divide the price by the number of anglers to figure out the per person price.

Do you provide lunches on the boats ... ?

  • We only provide lunch for full day (8 hour) trips. We do provide sodas, water & ice. If you are staying at an all-inclulsive hotel, we always recommend having them prepare a boxed lunch for you. You've paid for all of your food, afterall. If they give you any static about it just tell them you want the lunch for your room. Most hotels are quite cooperative.

Are children welcome ... ?

  • Absolutely! Children are all welcome. Persons under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Infants are not recommended except in the absolutely calmest of seas.

I am new to offshore fishing. Will someone help me ... ?

  • Yes, indeed. Our English speaking crews will help you as much or as little as you require. They are used to working with novices to experienced anglers.

What type of fishing will we be doing ... ?

  • Predominantly we will be trolling. This means riding around pulling bait. This is how we attract the large pelagic predators. It is usually the most comfortable of all. Sometimes we will also do some "bottom fishing". This means being parked in one place with lines dropping into the water. This is how we catch snappers, groupers and triggerfish. Bottom fishing is usally not recommended when the water is a bit rough because it can be more uncomfortable than trolling.

Are deposits refundable ... ?

  • Deposits are refundable up to ten days prior to your scheduled trip. If we have to cancel your trip due to weather issues your deposit will be fully refunded.

should i use pesos or dollars

We all miss the old days!. Used to be that dollars were the preferred choice when traveling. Draconian drug laws have made dollars problematic in Mexico. If you use dollars you will find yourself paying more for everything.

Use Pesos or Dollars? -

what about crime???

Crime is a concern to many prospective tourists. Contrary to what the media wants you to believe there is NO crime in the Riviera Maya involving toursts that I know of. I keep track of what's going on. I wouldn't be here if I thought there was even the remote chance of danger to my wife.

Don't just take our word for it. Take a look at this:

Don't book your fishing charter with your hotel. You will pay more and get less for your money! Use your computer to find available charters. Do your own research and make your own decisions. You'll save money and get a better boat. Don't forget to check out TripAdvisor. The customer reviews speak for themselves
