About
Trolling is one of the most popular offshore fishing techniques. This style of angling revolves around you dragging bait behind the boat to attract baitfish and predators alike. Your boat acts as a big lure, thanks to the noise your engine makes and the wake you create. Trolling setups are different from captain to captain but they all work the same way: you want as many lines in the water as possible, spaced out evenly. To this end, having many rod holders, outriggers, downriggers, and other equipment will increase your chances of getting a strike. Choosing the right speed, bait, and line placement determines how successful you’ll be. All of this preparation and required knowledge pays off: Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Billfish, and many other top-tier pelagic fish can be caught while trolling.

What to expect
  • The term “offshore” varies greatly based on which captain in which part of the world you ask but it’s generally accepted that when you can’t see land any more, you’re offshore. You’re looking at fishing waters from 40 to several hundred feet deep, although after 300’ it’s considered deep sea fishing. With great depths, come great sea beasts – offshore is where the hottest saltwater action happens! Lets go Fishing.

Sailfish And Snapper
Jun. 2021
I was a little worried about the fishing experience as we have been to other countrys and didnt do so well. My husband loves to fish and i enjoy being out on the water. After speaking to John on the phone we knew we were in good hands. He offered us coffee and breakfast prior to leaving on the boat. We headed out in search of sailfish! it wasnt long before we hooked on and I have to say i was very surprised the dedacation the crew had. We landed the fish and took some photos. With the sailfish checked off the list we were off for dinner. Bottom fishing was a bit slow but we stayed on top of the fish when we found them, Snapper for dinner! great crew great company. Highly recommend.

Thank you for your kind words. Also being patient with us regarding the Virus shutdown of most services. We are happy to be here for you during this time. Allowing yourself a day to spend on the water after being trapped inside for so long has a long-lasting impression. I saw your son with his tongue out like a dog on his first car ride after long days of winter. Hope to have you visit again and take us up on a motorcycle tour we now offer. Best fishing in Cartagena Colombia is now. Lets go Fishing

Very professional great experience
Always say I will write reviews for places and never do. This is a must if you truly enjoy fishing. We booked a half day excursion for Wahoo and Sail fish at the end of February 2020, and ended up with an amazing guide, Capt. John. It started with a check in phone call the day before which was very informative and helpful. In the morning we met Capt. John and couldn't of been any happier with the turnout. First off the boat was awesome. He was professional yet personable and it truly exceeded our expectations. We had fished many times before but never had as good of an experience as this one. He played great music and also let us have control of the Bluetooth speaker. It was non stop laughs and good times. He was there to help when we needed and to stand by and watch when we doing what we already knew. All of us learned so much from him. I can't thank him enough for being our guide and giving us an adventure we will never forget. We caught a massive Sail fish Capt. John knew exactly where to go. Highly recommend if your visiting Cartagena.

Tourist Trap. Spend your money in Colombia, not with this American scam artist
Don't be fooled by the stock photos taken from google. You will not catch any fish with this charter service. First
