I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for making the fishing trip we had with you a success! I planned a trip for myself and groomsmen as a “thank you” to them for being in my wedding and it was a trip we all will not soon forget (my wife and I actually got married in Cabo the following Saturday). The day started off a bit slow on the Adriana but we were all in anticipation when I hung this 110lb Yellowfin which took 1 hour and 45 minutes to bring in on 30lb test line!!! We lost a small Dorado boat side when he spit the hook but soon after landed a 40lb bull that one of my groomsmen landed. He was super excited as this was his 1st offshore fish ever! My best man hung a small 15lb yellowfin tuna, by no means was it the size of the rest of the catch but he still had a good time and enjoyed the trip. Our goal was to go out fishing and bring back enough fish to feed our wedding party of 30 and we had that accomplished with 2 fish totaling 150lbs! When my wife and I come back to Cabo I will definitely be giving the Pisces a call. Thanks again for the memories!

I was a guest on the Valerie on May 8th 2009. We had a fantastic day and hooked up with several striped marlin. We also boated two that day, one being mine.....my first striped marlin!

Once again yall have out done yalls self. I look forward to fishing with yall every trip. We fishing with Julio on "Bill Collector". This is our second year to fish with him and he is my favorite captian in all of Cabo. No one fishes hard than Julio. We had a great first fishing it was a perfect way to spend fathers day with my Dad and his best Rocky and his son Mitchell. We caught three tuna that day with Rocky's about 20lbs, Mitchel was about 50lbs and Mine was about 60lbs pictures are attched. The second was just as good as everybody got a turn to fight a fish with Rocky, Mitchel and my Dad all catching dorado the biggest about 50lbs. Are good friend Brian came along that and was able to catch and release his first marlin. Then we got a bit of a suprise at the end of the day when I caught a jackfish that hit front right corner teaser. But Once again a great trip and cant wait to come back.

Just wanted to say thanks for the great trip; I’ve attached a pic of the Dorado I caught while fishing on the Rebecca June 23rd. We caught a few Dorados and saw a number of striped Marlin and had a nice one take a bait before tossing the hook behind the boat. The crew worked hard and put us on fish, but the Marlin weren’t biting that day.

My family went on the Tracy Ann on April 30th and I caught a 180 lb. Striped Marlin and my brother caught a Mahi Mahi which we ate for dinner. We had a great time. It was a dream of mine to catch a huge fish while ocean fishing. I have a great tale to tell as my Marlin wasn't even hooked. The hook was merely wrapped around the sword. Thanks and I hope to be back.

We had a great time fishing both days...we also enjoyed the Captain and the mates...they were good guys and were working hard for us both days. The only disappointment was not landing that damned Dorado the second day!!!! It was soooooooooooo close and we wanted to eat it soooooooooooooo badly!!!! I stopped by your shop and bought a marlin flag to frame w/ a good pic of my marlin.... thanks again...I'll recommend Pisces to anybody traveling to Cabo.

Adriana and the Pisces Staff,
Virginia Thompson and I, Dave Sharninghouse, want to thank you and your staff for making our first Cabo fishing trip on 4/22/09 a big success! From the sweet rolls at the dock in the morning to the cleaning of our catch on the return, it was a great experience. Speaking of experience, Captain Julio and first mate Ernesto on the TRACY ANN, did an outstanding job of getting us on fish and talking us through the landing of the fish. We ended up with 1 marlin, 2 dorado, and 7 yellow fin tuna. The dinner at Alexander's with our fresh catch was awesome! When we left the dock Ernesto was great at explaining what to expect and was very professional in his dealings with us. He kept the boat immaculate and neat. I told my friends that you could have eaten off of the floor it was so clean!! Please relay my thanks to the crew of the TRACY ANN and give Fernando a nod too. Thanks for everything and being more than gracious with all of my inquires.

I want to thank you for a very memorable fishing experience last Friday February 27th, 2009. I was a member of the Nickerson group that caught five marlin. The crew of the boat were very professional and I think responsible for seeing that we caught so many fish. We were told that you would either mail or email us a certificate showing that we were successful. That would be a great reminder of a wonderful trip. I caught two marlin and will remember the thrill forever.

Dear Tracy, Juan, Oscar, Adriana and the Rest of the Pisces Office:
My wife and three of her girlfriends fished on “Ni Modo” on Monday, February 23, 2009 with Captain Edgar Renteria. Attached is a photo of one of the 9 striped marlin the girls caught and released that day at the Golden Gate Bank. Your office requested that we forward this photo to you, and I thought this photo might look good on your website given that you probably seldom have charters with females only. (The women pictured are, from left to right: Wendy Berger, Brenda Casey, Kathy Bradford and Kathy Carey; all of whom are from St. Louis, Missouri). Thanks as always for the excellent fishing and outstanding service. We will see later this month, and again in April.
Just a quick note to thank you, Ady, the crew of Valerie and the whole Pisces Team for a really memorable days fishing. The preparations and organization was first class, with quick responses to my E-Mails and answers to the questions therein. For a client who was in Cabo for only 71/2 hours on a cruise ship, getting 61/2 hours on the water and almost 5 hours fishing in was a fantastic achievement. Everything went smooth as clockwork, I was met within 10 minutes of getting to the cruise dock, the paperwork was all ready, 'Valerie' was waiting close by (no need to walk right round to her mooring) and 'she' was ready to go (bait, beer and gear all on board). Now, about 'Valerie' and the crew. Firstly, thankyou for the no cost upgrade. With time not on my side a fast boat to get me to 'Golden Gate' was essential and 'Valerie' delivered with a fast and comfortable ride. With my late start we were one of the last boats to get there but no bother, Capt Roberto put me straight on the fish with a lively 100lb Stripey hooked up within 20 minutes of arriving. A 25 minute fight later on 20lb Penn International stand-up gear and the fish was mine - a couple of quick photo's, a textbook release by deckhand Raymondo and my day was made. 3 good size Dorado and another stripey around 120lb (also released) completed the day - fantastic. Chasing and casting to 'tailing' marlin is something new to a (European) Atlantic angler who usually trolls lures or 'bait'n'switches' - reel good fun. I'll be back!!!
The crew really know their stuff and kept me right all day, all the tackle was top-notch and the boat was superb - ship shape and Bristol fashion as we say in the U.K. Only 2 regrets; 1. I wish I had had more time. My best marlin day is 2 blues and my best day overall is 1 blue, 1 spearfish and 2 wahoo, so to get 5 fish is fantastic, another hour and I'm certain Capt Roberto would have got me that 3rd Marlin. 2. I wish I had taken my wife with me. She has always wanted to catch a Billfish but won't take on a big blue using heavy chair tackle. These stripeys however would be right up her street. (We have been trying to get her a spearfish for 10 years or so in the Canary Islands, but never get one when she is on the boat). Next time I'm in Cabo I'm going to book 2 or 3 days with you guys - and the wife is coming too, so watch out!!!! To finish off, what a great day, what a great experience, what a great team.
Thank you Pisces Sportfishing. I will be recommending you to my friends, clients and also the cruise line.
Chris M from the U.K.
I just wanted to drop you a quick line and say many, many thanks for organizing a charter for me when I arrived on my cruise ship Oosterdaam.
The shore crew arranged a shared charter by putting a sign in the window, and it worked out very well. I was thrilled to get La Brisa, as we fished with them during the IGFA in 2006. Rey is a great captain, and with Salvadore, they are an amazing team. We left the wharf around 8:30am and headed to Golden Gate after buying some bait. When we arrived, the sea was boiling with action, and boats charging about to the many marlin coming up on the surface. Our crew got into the middle of a huge ball of mackerel and sardines, and proceeded to load up with more bait, which turned out to be a good thing. We began fishing around 10:00am and over the course of the next 4 hours, we pitched continuously to marlin, and had 21 strikes, 16 hook-ups and battles, and successfully got 11 marlin to the boat, all of which we released. I have never seen the sea so active with marlin, whales, seals, birds, and every other specie of marine life as that day. When we finally had lines in around 2:00pm and headed back to the cruise ship, we were tired and thrilled with the day's fish. Salvadore made a special abalone dish, with cold beers to wash it down, and then we just roared along, - and were treated to a magnificent whale jumping show enroute back to port. It was probably one of the best fishing days I've ever had. I've circulated some of my pics amongst my friends both here in Canada, in the Caribbean, and down in the U.S., and we're now planning a trip back in November.
I'll send you some of the marlin pics I took during the trip, and feel free to share them with Rey and Salvadore. All the very best, and tight lines,
Bob S. Kelowna, BC Canada
Thanks, My party and I had the absolute pleasure of fishing with Captain Steve, and his crew Rudy, Lobo and Victor, aboard Spartacus at Sea. I have chartered “dozens” of boats over the years. I have never experienced a captain and crew that were so friendly and willing to do whatever it takes to keep all of us happy. They were timely and efficient. Everything was always perfectly organized, whether it was as simple as coffee and breakfast first thing in the morning to the equipment working, it was a truly an excellent time. These guys never even stopped for a lunch break! Steve and his crew run a “tight ship”. The boat was spotless each and every day that we arrived. Even with his broken leg, Steve would make sure that we had our music of choice playing or had the food laid out for us. It seemed that no matter what the situation was, Steve and the guys had either already thought of it, or would jump on it and handle it without haste. The 4 of them worked in unison on this boat. There was never an argument or disagreement about who was supposed to be doing “this job” (which I have seen all too often on other charters). I really cannot express what an incredible time we had. Coming from the Philadelphia/New Jersey area, we spend 2 entire days traveling to and from Cabo in order to have 3 days of fishing. THIS trip is what we had always hoped for – thanks to Steve and his crew. By the way, we caught some fish too! On day 1, we landed 29 striped marlin. On day 2, another 26. And on day 3 we landed another 25 marlin, plus 5 dorado. Steve’s goal was for us to land 100 marlin in 3 days, and I think he worked harder at it than we did, otherwise there is no question we would have done it! Please extend our gratitude to the boat owner as well. Steve and the crew take exceptional care of the boat, inside and out, as well as the fishing equipment. Their pride shows not only while we are on the water fishing, but while Spartacus is docked. Steve and his crew showed a genuine passion to work hard for us each and every day. I’m an owner in a business, and know that I appreciate when we receive a compliment. To say that Steve and the guys did a great job would be an understatement. I would highly recommend Steve and his crew, along with Spartacus at Sea, to anyone who was considering a charter.

Well I did not think it was possible to beat the number of Marlin we caught last year when we traveled 3 hours one way to The Finger, but we did. In three days of fishing on La Brisa, Rebecca and Ruthless we hooked up to 39 Marlin and landed 29 of them, plus one Dorado, but this time it was only a short one hour ride to Golden Gate. The only downside was that there were so many bites, we ran out of bait each day. Never the less, it was the first trip for my brother Marty and the first Marlin for my son RJ and I can guarantee that when they come again, it will only be with Pisces. Attached is a proud father and son shot of me and RJ which is already on my desktop. Feel free to post this letter and picture on your website and we will look forward to seeing you again next year.
You guys are AWESOME!

It's been almost a month since our and we are still eating tuna and Mahi Mahi. I just wanted to thank everyone there at Pisces for our amazing trip, especially Julio and Martin. My Father and I fished for 4 amazing days. The first day was a bit rough out on the Pacific and we didn't have much luck til the afternoon when we caught a Striped Marlin and a Dorado. Our second day was amazing we headed into the Sea of Cortez and before 9 am we had a Wahoo and six Dorado in the boat. We went out further when we caught a 325lb Blue Marlin!!! It took me almost two hours to bring into the boat. This was the experience I had always waited for deep sea fishing. Our third day we went looking for Tuna but only found a couple Dorado and a 200 plus pound Blue Marlin. The crew felt is was a slow day, but I think any day you land a 200lb Blue Marlin is a great day. Our last day we landed that Tuna, about a 100lbs, it was harder then the Blue Marlin. We landed another Striped Marlin and a couple Dorado also that day. It's my second outing with Pisces and we will definitely be back. Thanks!"
