Been a not migratory specie, the roosterfish is caught year round. In the dry season (from December until early May) you can expect bigger catches; however, in the rainy season (from late May until November) are expected more catches, but maybe, less average size.

Dorado is caught almost year round; however, there are more catches in the rainy season, between May through October. We catch them because they congregate on teh wee and tras lines when fishing inshore and offshore.

Our Fishing Charters

Half day (4 Hours)

Our half day charters last between 4-5 hours. Is normal we leave at 7.30am and comeback around noon.

A four hours fishing charter is enough for inshore fishing only; so, we do not reach farther spots but fishing grounds at 20 or 30 minutes boat running and our main target is roosterfish, jacks, bonitos; sometimes is possible go after mahi mahi or doing some bottom fishing for red snapper.

Three Quarters (6 Hours)

This is a fishing charter for 6 hours, also leave at 7.30am and comeback between 1.30 - 2pm.

You can choose to reach offshore spots, this is a one hour boat running in the way to the fishing grounds and one hour back; so, we would have 4 hours of fishing; or maybe you want to keep fishing inshore and had the chance of fishing for more time since the boat running time is not too much.

Full Day (8 Hours)

This is an 8 hours fishing charter. We would start at 7.30am and expect to be back around 3.30-4pm.

Fishing offshore and inshore sometimes is possible on full day charter; request information about it. We reach farther inshore spots around one hour or more boat running and our main target is roosterfish and cubera snapper. If fishing offshore we go after big mahi mahi, sails, marlin and seasonal yellowfin and wahoo.
