Mexican vacation 2020 was cut short due to Corona Virus but we were able to fulfill our appointment with Capt. Pete on the Dos Amigos. We booked an 8-hr trip which included some whale watching and fishing. First thing when we got on the boat, Capt Pete informed of our "missions" for the day. Either fill the cooler with fish or drink all the beer on the boat. Capt. Pete wasn't our captain that day but his hands Louise and Superstar Ramone were great. On the ride out, I sat on the flybridge with Louise and he explained the water around us, what we were seeing on the graph, and where we would be fishing. I chose to do some trolling for marlin or whatever else over "action". We tried for a marlin, but even though we saw a few lolling around on the surface were unable to hook up. With a couple hours left in the day we went for some "action" and caught a couple Bonito and spanish mackerel, which was great because we wanted something to take back to the resort to eat that night.
We've booked charters in other locales and this one has been the best yet. We had no problem communicating....Louis and Ramone speak very good english even though they think they don't. Ramone made fresh ceviiche on the boat and it's mucho bueno!
Oh yeah, we also saw whales, dolphins.....and drank all the beer on the beer on the boat! We'll be fishing with Capt Pete again this March since we have a voucher for our unused vacation days. Dang, we have to go back.
Sounds like a great trip. I hope to get out someday for Marlin but am never in Mexico during their season!
