    I took driftwood years ago and it was alright but just 1 or 2 boats down from it is Hats Off and If I were going fishing, I would take Captain Glenn at 297 740-4845 or info@hattsoffcharters.com Glenn is a great guy and has a very nice boat and always gets you fish. Kent
    Snorkel Mangel Halto, day or night with a waterscooter. Check out our website. E-mail Stuart at arubabob@live.com or call Stuart local: 745-7459 Or visit: www.arubabobsnorkeling.com 50th trip Dec 11, 2017

    Best Deep Sea fishing charter?

    Hi everyone,

    Dose anyone have a recommendation for a 8 hour deep sea fishing charter?
    I am looking for a boat that will go far off shore for big game fish.

    Thank you.

    In all fairness... if you want big game like billfish then I would not book the Melina due to the size of the boat. The Melina is only a 29 foot express. Larger sportfishers would probably suit your needs better like Hatts Off charters, Teaser charters, Mahi Mahi charters and the like.

    Caveat - I have not fished with any of the other charter companies I mentioned. I have only fished on the Melina but the boat suits me and my wife just fine and we're not particularly after billfish. We would be delighted if we hooked into a marlin or sailfish but we're just as happy with tuna, wahoo, and mahi. Plus they're also one of the less expensive charters on the island.

    Looking forward to the fishing report!

    There's a post in this forum that I started for fishing reports... if you don't mind could you post in that thread so we can keep fishing reports together?
