Screaming Reels Sportfishing

Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico

Situated on the breathtaking Pacific coast of Mexico, Puerto Escondido is a hidden gem for sportfishing enthusiasts, and Screaming Reels Sportfishing offers an unforgettable experience with an authentic local crew.

The owner and primary captain, Yoni Buron, was born and raised in Puerto Escondido and has spent almost as much time on the water than on shore. For the past 14 years, he has been a full-time captain, and has perfected his craft of chasing the pelagic species that frequent the deep Pacific waters offshore – sailfish (known locally as “Pez Vela”), Mahi (aka Dorado), yellowfin tuna, and occasionally blue marlin.

It isn’t a flashy operation, but Yoni takes his craft very seriously and offers a true local fishing experience – not the typical “expensive boat ride” excursions that are often pushed by beachfront barkers in this part of the world. Screaming Reels has top notch tackle, which you’ll likely need as the fishing can be great for the target big game species.

Puerto Escondido is more laid back than the bigger name Mexican resort destinations, but for those looking for something a little more laid back, it can be a nice respite from the crowds of the Yucatan or towering resorts elsewhere on the Pacific Coast. If you end up booking a trip to Puerto Escondido, you’ll want to book a few days with Captain Yoni – an excellent captain who will give you an authentic local experience.
