About Your Guide

Captain Arturo has been fishing for more than 2 decades now. In addition to being a charter captain, he's also been an avid tournament angler for the last 5 years and has had his share of awards to boot. For him, the best part of his job is when he fishes with people who haven't fished before, or when someone catches a fish they've never caught before. Seeing those expressions on people's faces is much better than catching the fish himself!

We had an amazing time on the water yesterday with Captain Arturo! I definitely recommend the full day trip because he keeps you on the fish, you won’t want it to stop! He put us on tons of reds & trout, we even caught a few big bait fish. Bring ...Read More
