About:
Fishing from the 125' Big Jamaica Head Boat!

More canyon fishing time and an amazing value!
When we first arrive at the fishing grounds, we normally spend the afternoon fishing for Mahi-Mahi or possibly tuna if there has been an afternoon bite.

The decision on what to fish for will be the captain’s choice, depending on conditions. We usually set up for tuna just before sunset. We then fish for tuna through the night and into the early morning. This works out to between 12 and 15 hours of fishing time for tuna alone.
