The Tyrrhenian Sea is known to be astoundingly beautiful, but it’s also home to a variety of exciting species to catch. Pequeño Nieto takes full advantage of its local experience and brings you right to the hottest fishing spots off the coast of Italy.

Climb aboard the 22’ Robalo, built in 2010. It’s powered by twin Honda engines, with an impressive 500 HP between them, giving the boat the capacity to develop 32 knots. That speed ensures you get to your fishing spot in no time. She comes fully equipped for the job of serious fishing. A state-of-the-art electronics suite is present on board, as well as a wireless trolling motor. A live bait well and outriggers are there also, ensuring your trolling trips go smoothly and efficiently.

Captain Dario Rossi is a veteran of the local waters and happy to take you to all of the local fishing spots that he knows about. This charter prides itself on being versatile, catering to both families with children and inexperienced anglers, as well as serious sportsfishermen looking to net a prize keeper. Dentex, Amberjack, Bluefish, Mahi Mahi, and others are on the catch list for this charter. The stars of the show are the Spearfish and the Bluefin Tuna. The vessel is fully equipped to take on these prestigious predator fish.

There is no minimum age policy for this charter but Captain Dario doesn’t allow children under 10 on the big game fishing trips. All the required equipment is provided by the charter. Customers are advised to bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, and food on longer trips.

Keeping the catch depends on the season, for Bluefin Tuna keeper months are June and July. Keeping the catch depends on the season, species targeted, and local laws. Customers are recommended to contact the captain about keeping their catch prior to booking the trip.
