We were lucky enough to squeeze in a four hour fishing trip in the midst of a mild hurricane. Captain Jorge and Neo were wonderful hosts, kept us safe and provided a terrific experience overall. We caught a Mahi an a 60 lb. Marlin. Great day!

We are a family with two boys - 8 & 10 and set out to deep sea fish with Captain Jorge and his friendly crew Johnny and Neo. First half of the trip was deep sea fishing. One hour into our trip we hooked a gorgeous sailfish (catch & release). Truly spectacular! Last half of the trip was spent in shallow water and our sons caught plenty of grunts and a nice sized trigger fish. Boat was comfortable with a canopy for shade and they provided water, soda and beer for the 4 hour journey. Overall, an outstanding fishing trip from beginning to end! We hope this review lifts The Rusty Hook to the top spot for fishing boat excursions in Playa del Carmen.

Caught a host of fish, Amberjack, 2 kinds of Snapper, a dogfish (type of shark) and Calico grouper! Excellent time! Captain Jorge was easy to reach and replied quickly to all my inquiries. His son Neal kept our lines wet and always kept us fishing. The other mate (sorry forgot his name) provided good humor and also kept us on fish. My only complaint would be that we wanted to buy shirts...but unfortunately due to covid Jorge's supplier went out of business. I would 100% go back on this boat with this crew. I booked it...and my friends were not so sure it would be fun. Jorge and his crew made me look like a genius! They cleaned the fish as well and we ate some of it the same day in Ceviche! Truthfully I was a bit suspect as Jorge is like..here we fish for Amberjack...then we catch an amberjack...then we move and he says here we fish for snapper..and we catch snapper...and so on. Excellent experience!

Aside from the fact the the weather was horrible this day, (not in the least bit the Rusty Hook's fault, of course), it was cold, gloomy and rainy. But then the crew noticed the engine was only being held on with 1 bolt! They cut our trip short and still charged us for the entire day. Would have been appropriate, in my opinion, to either decrease the amount owed, or give a "rain check" (no pun intended) for another half day trip. Something! Will never use this business again.

Response from jorge-caldelas, Propietario at The Rusty Hook
Responded Dec 17, 2020
Hi, I'm sorry about your bad experience with us, but normally if we have a bad weather ( that is not our fault) we prefer to cut the trip shorter and give some refund, why I didn't give you some refund I really don't remember, and I apologize for that. I really don't know what happened that day, but I remember that the motor was only attached by one bolt, that week some outboards were stolen here in playa del caremn, maybe I just got lucky, the day we went fishing we went back to harbour still fishing but for safety reason I didn't want to keep fishing, you said a bad motor? It was a 150hp four strokes that was working fine now we upgrade to a 2019 200hp four stroke Yamaha. Maybe it was a misunderstanding, can you please email me because we don't have the day you went fishing with us, and we can talk about it and give you some refund. sincerely. Jorge Caldelas.
