Captain
Miguel Ancona

Member since December 2018 Puerto Aventuras, Mexico
Background
Miguel Acona is the owner of The Reel Thing, and is joined at the helm by the friendly and knowledgeable Capt. Boto. Capt. Boto is a local fisherman through and through – he's native to this area and has fished here for over 20 years, so it's fair to say he knows these waters like the back of his own hand! He's joined by a local crew who have fished the marina for over 12 years, so when you come aboard The Reel Thing, you know you'll be in safe hands when it comes to having the angling adventure of a lifetime. This charter also has some serious bragging rights under their belts – in June 2018, they won 2nd place at the National Tournament at Playa de Carmen, and reached 13th place out of 160 boats in Cozumel's tournament. They also caught the biggest local Wahoo!
