Captain said bottom fishing was a little more dependable the week we were there. Caught 10-12 fish in less than 2 hours before I had to cut it short for the kids. When we docked I saw another crew that went deep sea fishing with about 8 fish laid out with a nice sized bonito and mahi so seems like both are productive

Trolling and teaser fishing can be hit or miss. Never a guarantee. If it’s important to make sure everyone catches fish or kids are onboard, then try a bottom fishing trip. The weather and sea are beautiful. Can be very windy at times.

Reminder to those that don’t fish often, it’s called fishing and not catching for a reason. These people try extremely hard to help land a fish for you, but at the end of the day they can only do so much.

The ocean around Aruba is deep and wide, so if you are prone to seasickness make sure you take Dramamine ( or similar medication ) well ahead of your trip. Wearing a long sleeve fishing shirt ( HUK is a great example ) and a large (shade providing) fishing hat, sunglasses and LOTS of SUN TAN LOTION will help you be more comfortable during your trip. I personally would minimize alcohol consumption before and during the trip for your comfort, but also as a safety measure. Lat but now not least: " BE PREPARED FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE"

We booked the morning run and had a great experience. Crew says it doesn’t matter time of day to fish. We wore runners and shorts/swimsuits. Sunscreen. Bring a cooler to put any fish you wish to take home and they will supply ice. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t catch fish for a bit as the first few minutes is travelling to where most of the fish are. They supply water and Coke. Enjoy!!

Book a longer trip. 4hrs is not quite enough time for me, but we had plenty to clean in our short 4hr trip. We got lucky and the mahi found us while bottom fishing. So happy there is not a ton of sharks eating everything we caught.

Fishing is fishing. Sometimes you get a catch, sometimes you don't. The morning sun wasn't too bad but around 10am the sun starts to really hit you. The waves weren't too crazy but hit it just right and the boat will rock. We didn't catch anything today Aug 4th but I would go again if I had the time. Never know what you can get.

Рыбачил с Mahi Mahi Fishing Charters – 42' Kepasa Июнь 20, 2023
Plan ahead and book ahead because it's a small fleet and I was on the mahi-mahi 42 ft Hatteras and it was a wonderful trip but I raided not for children because the seas are anywhere from 5 to 15 ft and I mean all the time.

Great trip! It was less wavy than expected with windy conditions and we stayed within sight of the shore. We did take gravol/wrist bands to mitigate sea sickness and would definitely go for another fishing excursion!

I am a novice. But, worked sailboats. We trolled. Did not do bottom fishing. I like the ease and quickness of trolling. It is windy and a bit rough in April. If you do not have sea legs, take anti nausea medications and do not drink night before heading out.

Our particular fishing day was a little slow. The ocean was a bit rough due to the constant wind. We heard there were 5 charter boats out that day. There were only our two catches, and one other from another boat. Not sure if that's the norm this time of year.

Great crew. Helpful and I know it’s not their fault for not finding the fish. I didn’t even get a bite. Perhaps they shouldn’t stay at the same spot too long. Should offer discount or refund on bad days.

Other times of the year you can go to the other side of the island and catch sailfish. Would prefer to do that

Not good. The waters were rough. The Captain of her boat was not nice on Edge and his son was the Mate and had no idea what he was doing. The lines kept getting tangled. Not a good experience.

It's a boat. Aruba has high winds so the water can be rocky. If you're unsure of getting sick I'd suggest taking seasick medicine ahead of time.

You aren’t guaranteed to catch something but as long as you know that you will have fun.

This boat supplied everything. Just bring a few snacks if on the water more than a couple hours.

Maybe not all species are hitting but a lot are. One boat landed a handful of wahoo and tamed a sailfish which are typically scarce this time of year.

Caught two nice fish, but in very high swells. Some other boats from the Marina had to turn back as their guests got seasick

Fishing has a lot to do with luck and experience. Make sure you get the Captain that regularly runs the boat, not a fill in

Fishing had been slow so the fact that we were about to haul in some fish was nice. No real big ones but we have have big ones in the past!

Pretty windy rough seas. Trolling for four hours produced one fish and saw several other boats trolling and not catching much. Probably would have been better off drop fishing

Don’t get your hopes up too high. Fishing is better at certain times of the year. Be happy with any fish you catch ?

Research when the preferred season is for the fish you want to catch. Otherwise you'll have to get lucky.

Fishing is good this time of year but with the water temperature being at its warmest, it can be hit or miss.

Bone fishing was good and easily accessible. Caught bones and Blue Runners on the flats near downtown.
