Captain Julio operates the Thresher. He Is truly the master of the entire operation. Julio has lived on the East cape his entire life and has been fishing since he was a child. He does not fish, he hunts for fish. His experience, leadership and attitude are second to none. Julio has developed a teaching method that has created a Dos Amigos Culture. Our boats and equipment are cleaner and superior to any other boats available in the area. Julio demands that no one goes home before the boats and equipment are cleaned each day. If Julio sees something is worn out or broken it gets fixed or replaced. Julio has superior operational skills and he is one of the nicest people I know. As the Santa Claus of fishing Julio will try to fulfill every item on your fishing bucket list. Be careful what you ask Santa for as sometimes you can get more than what you imagined.
Captain Paco operates The El loco. He has spent his entire life fishing on the East Cape. Paco has been mentored by Julio as well as Alan Arizia whose legendary family has a legacy of generations of great fisherman in the East Cape. Captain Paco's fishing skills are finely tuned. He is a great captain and his mating skills are of the highest level. He is one of the best harpooners in the business. I have personally seen him take a shot at a 300lb swordfish where he threw the harpoon with such accuracy and force that the harpoon completely impaled the fish. Paco's good nature and great attitude make him a pleasure to fish with. He is 100% authentic, is a great person to work with, and has our deepest respect.
Captain Abraham operates The Mako. I first met Abraham when I started fishing with Julio many years ago. Abraham has since climbed the ranks and is now one of the best captains on the East Cape. He was mentored by Julio and it shows! He is one of the best wire men in the business. I have personally seen him single handedly wrestle a very large marlin, probably 3 times his size, in order to release the fish unharmed to fight another day. Abraham didn't even break a sweat! He was a great mate and is an even better captain. Abraham has a great attitude and good sense of humor.
Captain Carlos is the newest member of our team and the part time operator of our newest boat, The Tiger. Carlos runs The Tiger with the same standard of excellence as Julio. He is extremely clean, respectful and has a great attitude. You can find Carlos in many of the client's catch photos wearing a bigger grin than the angler. He is a great angler and is ready to handle the responsibility of being a truly great captain.
Captain Alan is the part time operator of The Tiger. Alan comes from generations of legendary anglers on the East Cape. His family dates back to the beginning of sport fishing on the East Cape. I have fished with Alan numerous times and I am always amazed at how he can see the fish before they bite! He has eyes like a hawk and the cunning of a tiger. He reacts so quickly when the need arises that it leaves you speechless. Captain Alan is one of the best technical Captains/fishermen I have ever met. Alan is the best of the best and we are very proud to have him as part of our team, even if it is only part time.
