About M.V. Piscatur

M.V. PiscaturThe M.V. Piscatur is a 42' Twin Turbo Diesel Fishing Machine, tournament rigged, and carries Penn International, full electronics, the best lures, Downriggers, lots of gadgets, electric reel, and many more toys. M.V. Piscatur is the largest fishing boat available on Bonaire.

The boat is equipped with the Best--Penn InternationalThe boat is custom-built with fishing in mind. Her deck gives a comfortable workspace of more than 125 square feet. Powered by two Perkins engines, she will keep pace with most schools of 200-pound tuna.

The boat is equipped with WC (head), kitchen, sleeps 2, life jackets, and VHF to ensure everyone's safety and comfort.

Her dock is conveniently located in the center of town, and within minutes you are fishing for big game in Bonaire's deep blue waters, which are just off the world-famous La Guaira Bank of Venezuela.


Captain Chris tells us: "To go after big game is not a matter of coincidence, but steadfast dedication. From live baiting 5-pound tunas for big 'hoos, to sporting Sailfish on 8-pound test, we are there to make it the fishing trip you always wanted to do. After a quick briefing on what kind of fish are passing through and the sorts of bait, we will leave the choice to you.

"At times we catch 100-pound tunas within a two-mile range of town. Other times we may go ten miles out, or even circle Bonaire completely in pursuit of the best fishing experience."

"I was dreaming of sitting back and watching the flamingos fly by to smooth my hangover of the night before. Captain Chris understood the situation immediately and ordered his mate, Kadho, to send all the lines out with lures. I nodded pleasantly and dozed off. Five minutes into my deserved nap--in fact, still in town--all hell broke loose.

Wahoo striking!STRIKE! "A curved rod at starboard side, a creaming Penn International, my pals shouting "Strike", and before I knew what was going on, I slipped out of the chair and hit the floor for a rude awakening. I scrambed towards the rod while Captain Chris attached a fighting belt around me, and in no time I was standing up fighting a 50-pound wahoo. After a fight of fifteen minutes, I landed this delicious fish. Captain Chris doubled back to the same spot and within minutes we had a double strike. Landed both. This went on and on up to ten minutes before docking. I slept the whole afternoon."
