Captain Edwin Murillo has spent his whole life on the water and has extensive experience fishing anywhere from the shallow bays to the depths of the Pacific Ocean. For Captain Edwin, the most important part of any trip is making sure his clients leave with smiles on their faces and fish in their hands, even if that means staying out past the end of the trip.
