Elias Tadeo Fishing Charters

Leave the beach behind and really start living! Make the most of your holiday and discover the riches of the Pacific with Elias Tadeo Fishing Charters. Head out from Mexico’s idyllic western coast and get ready to experience fishing like never before. You won’t believe your eyes as majestic Marlin leap out of the water and stunning Sailfish leave you dazzled. Tuna and Mahi Mahi will come later on!

What better way to discover these rich, diverse waters than with a local? Captain Jose Antonio Hernandez Martinez hails from a family of fishermen and has been fishing these waters for over 30 years. He’s fished all over Central America’s Pacific coast and knows just what it takes to reel in the biggest fish. He’s proud of his record and hopes to get you filling the boat with beautiful, delicious fish.

Hop aboard the 26’ Panga center console and let the magic begin. You’ll have everything you need for a productive day out on the water, including Shimano gear and live bait. Sit back while you troll the open waters and wait for the bite with a drink in your hand. Your captain will provide complimentary water, soda, and beer, and you can bring your own snacks, so get ready to unwind.

When you hear the reels screech, you’d better be ready to leap into action. Don’t waste a second when you feel the bite of a monster Marlin, Tuna, Sailfish, or Mahi Mahi. These tough-fighting beasts will do anything to get off the end of your line. You’re in for the battle of your life when it comes to reeling in any of these beasts, so expect an intense workout.

As you head back to shore, enjoy the stunning landscape of Mexico’s Pacific coast and cool off with a beverage. There’s still plenty to look forward to! Capt. Jose will clean and fillet your catch, so you can head to a beachside restaurant and enjoy the taste of success as the sun goes down. Everything is possible aboard Elias Tadeo Fishing Charters. Come and see for yourself!

Hailing from a family of fishermen, Captain Jose was always going to enter the family business. With over 30 years of fishing experience, there's no one better to show you the riches of the Pacific than him. He's sailed from Cabo to Panama as a captain and has fished all over Mexico, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. Nothing can dampen his enthusiasm and he still competes in all local competitions, picking up the 2nd place prize for a 33.8 kg Vela fish.
