Art has been running fishing trips for over 2 decades and loves the feeling you get of leaving all your problems at the shore. He hopes to offer this same feeling of freedom to all his customers.

The day will be spent on his beautiful 36’ boat “Dream Big”. This boat has a large unobstructed deck so you can reel in your fish with ease. When not fishing, relax inside the spacious saloon. There is plenty of seating, a restroom, and even a bed. This boat offers a comfortable and dry ride out to the various fishing grounds.

For beginners and children, try the shorter trips and targeting Yellowtail Amberjack. It will take 30 minutes to get to the fishing grounds. Anglers with more experience will enjoy the Tuna trip, targeting Yellowfin and Bluefin. This requires a 6-hour ride to the fishing grounds. Other species you can target on these trips are Mahi Mahi, Halibut, Red Snapper, Barracuda, and Bonito.

Children are welcome on this trip but must be old enough to stand and walk comfortably without assistance. Life vests are provided for them, along with any adults who need one.

You’ll need to bring along your own food and drink on this trip. Remember to bring along sun protection – a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses are all essential.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels. All 8 anglers can fish at once, except on the Tuna trip where the trip is for 6 anglers maximum. Also provided are fishing licenses for everyone on board.

The captain will fillet the fish that you can keep for you once back at shore.

Book a trip with Dream Big Sport Fishing today for the ultimate in varied and Mexican fishing – there is something for everyone here.

Captain Art has been running charter for 20 years and has had his own boat for the past 10 years. He loves the ocean and fishing as he can disconnect from everything else. Fishing is highly therapeutic and Capt. Art feels lucky to get out and fish every day, something that a lot of other people can't. Capt. Art loves to share this experience with his customers and looks forward to welcoming you on board.
