Jon and Jill will show you the ropes, and then teach you how to slide down them! Their expertise is undeniable and their hospitality even better!

“Outstanding Trip...."Fish On!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2011

Jon and Jill have put together a fantastic fishing package in La Paz, MX. From Jorges who picked us up in Cabo to all of our guides (Rogilio, Joel, Armando, and Adolpho) it was a fantastic experience. We caught loads of Dorado and Tuna, and had a great time while doing it. Jill provided breakfast, lunch and drinks for those days we were on the water. The boat Captains know what they are doing on provide consistent fishing action while on the water. Nothing like having a "local" show you the ropes when it comes to catching fish in Mexico. The accommodations were great. We stayed at the La Concha Resort (about 5 miles from town). The resort has a great beach and an outstanding restaurant. The waiters were great and so was the service.

I would recommend this trip for anyone looking to catch limits of fish in Mexico. We brought back 50# of Dorado and 50# of Tuna after just two days of fishing. I will be going to there again next year.....this trip is definitely on my "every year" list of vacations.

“The best outfitter in La Paz.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2011

I have fished in many destinations, and I was very impressed with Jonathan's and Jill's fishing excursions. Everything was taken care of, and all I had to do was catch fish. I fished with several of their captain's, and all of them were excellent. It was memorable, and we will be back.

“Tuna fishing with the Las Arenas Fleet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2011

We had 2 guys who had never fished in the ocean and one of them had never fished. What an exciting trip to see all of us catch tuna and dorado until we could fish no more. The best fishing I have been on and Jonathon and his Captains really took care of us. The Tailhunter Restaurant even fix some of the tuna we caught (Sushimi)! This is my 2nd trip and I will be going down to La Paz to join in the fishing next year.

“This is always an excellent trip for us and we are also treated like close family every time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

Fishing guides really know how to catch fish and Jonathan and Jill are there every morning making sure you are taken care of. Worry free and stress free. Excellent condos and the entire fish preparation process is awesome. We will keep coming back to Tailhunter because they take care of everything from trip preparation to actually arriving. Once again awesome trip and can't wait til next year.
