great day for snapper and trigger fishing, but i was expecting more adrenaline pumping tuna, barracuda, sailfish, and/or a shark or two. perhaps if one decides to book with chac chi, make sure you let them know what you are fishing for and it helps to speak a little spanish. my trip were all english speaking client of 7, not the max of 6 as they say, and the crew spoke 95% spanish. I would have like more time fishing, rather than be handed the rod, asked to sit on a chair and crank. And it wasn't even a marlin. At the end of the trip, i thought the fishes were to be divided amongst paid clients and he/she has the right to decline or give their fish away if he/she wishes. But we were asked to pick 1-2 fish and the rest went to the captain and crew. Great market scheme to make more money if the fishes were sold to fish markets and other clients. And what can you say when the people from other boats had great story to tell you about their trip, for example, hooking onto two 100 lbs sailfish and a 4-5 15-20lbs tunas which were an adrenaline rush.

Hi, thank you for writting back.. it is very important to us to know about your experience…
Usually we have the small 33” boats for share fishing, but if we need to use the deluxe one we try to fill it.. 1 of the clients was only a companion..
About the sailfishing we usually recommend to charter a boat, because it takes more time and when you have 6 clients expecting to have fun in just a couple of hours sailfishing is not the option… unless all the participants agree that someone might not fish at all…
If you feel that they are going to sell the fish I apollogyze for them, they take the fish that the client gives them to home.

I hope you can give us another try and well make our best effort to fulfill your expectations..

Thanks a lot

I was a little bit leery of a shared fishing trip that I received for going to a grueling time-share presentation, but arrived at the marina at 6:30 and things got better quickly. I was joined by five others aboard Captain Edgar's fishing boat and we traveled for about an hour before beginning to fish. We immediately began catching bonitos which were to be used for bait to catch bigger fish. The first large fish was a 60lb. barracuda and the day was made from there. The captain and crew worked hard to be sure that all had an opportunity to catch fish. We caught barracuda, snapper, rainbow tuna, bonito, and trigger fish on our 6 hour trip.

Today i went fishing with my grilfriend, it was a beautiful day, great sun, cold beers, great crew...
we caugth some redsnappers, triggerfish, barracuda it was great for only 4hrs.
When we got back to the dock, the capitan asked us, "do you want to eat the redsnapper ? we have a good restaurant and they can cook it for you" so i didn't think'd to much and i told him " Of course a good fisherman has to eat his own fish".
On my way to the restaurant, in the end of the dock i saw i huge beautiful Blue Marlin, other people caught it of course, i was like "dam i want to caught one of those", so i asked the crew how can i get a marlin , and they told me that i need al least to go for fishing for 8 hrs and good luck.
So defenitly next time im not going to think about it, i wil take the 8 hrs and fish my own blue marlin.
By the way great service at restaurant.
