Quite simply, it is completely awesome. With just a short boat ride half a mile off the coast, suddenly you will be trolling in water 1000 feet deep. Some of the common catches while deep sea fishing Roatan are:
- Blackfin Tuna
- Yellow Fin Tuna
- Mahi Mahi
And just because you are on a chartered offshore fishing trip doesn’t mean that it is going to be an easy time! Mahi Mahi and Wahoo especially put up one heck of a fight. But no matter if it is your first time fishing or you are a seasoned pro, with Captain Artley laid back attitude and the beautiful scenery, you are going to have a fantastic time.
If you do get a bite from either of these feisty fish, here’s what you can expect:
A beautiful fish with sparkling tones of yellow, blue, green and red and can range from 15 to 60 pounds. Also referred to as Dolphin Fish or Dorado, the intensity of their colors change and fades almost immediately after being caught.
They are fast, swimming at over 50 mph and are known to frequently jump in the air. When you hear ‘FIsh On’, hold tight because you have a serious challenge on your hook. The males are referred to as bulls, which is suiting because it can feel like a rodeo when trying to reel one in.
An even faster fish that travels at speeds over 60 mph, with razor sharp teeth and an aggressive attitude. Sleek and long with a blue black and silver streaked sides, they can weigh up to 150 pounds. Notorious for breaking free (and sometimes taking the hook and bait with them), they fight fast and hard. Don’t be surprised if it sounds like your reel is screaming when you get a bite and be prepared for the wahoo will pull hard. If you do get it to the boat, stand back as you bring it aboard, those teeth are sharp!
The best prize after catching a wahoo, mahi mahi or any fish on your deep sea fishing Roatan charter is that you can have them for dinner. And nothing tastes better than a fresh catch of the day. Ask Captain Artley for some cooking suggestions!
