I am a repeat customer for good reason! I have fished both Cabo and Mazatlan before finding Jonathan's Operation in La Paz, and I must say I will never fish anywhere else again. It doesn't matter which boat or which Captain he sets you up with they are all very knowledgeable, professional, and hard working to get you the most out of your fishing experience. I am a very hard working fella when it comes to fishing on Mother Ocean and ask for two things, a Captain that works as hard as I do............and to have FUN while doing so. My expectations have always been met or exceeded on every trip no matter what multiple species we were catching. I was amazed with the fact that even though Jonathan was not in La Paz at the time of this years trip he kept in touch with his folks that make everything happen, from the meals for the day, the chauffer for our trip, to the Captain of the boat I was on, and he was making sure that everything was Primo for my trips (which they were). Jonathan is a true professional and an exceptional host. (Lets not forget his lovely wife Jill who keeps him in line and on course, she is the best also). Another great thing about Jonathan is his numerous connections for other activities while on vacation in La Paz. My fiancée had never seen a whale up close before and when Jonathan suggested whale watching (and later touching !) we jumped on it. Well it was a 5 star day, and again Jonathan was on the phone making sure everything was 100%. We touched whales, played with them with our boats, and had a seafood lunch fit for royalty (seafood with a lobster tail). An amazing vacation does not aptly describe it - Thank You Jonathan & Jill - We will be back and bringing friends. Art Flippin

The skippers that Jonathan has on his fleets are all very knowledgeable of the waters that they fish to get you exactly what you to catch. The skippers are very friendly and work very hard to make sure you have a great fishing experience.

It is hard to believe that one business could get so many excellent reviews. I just returned from La Paz and have to add one more. Jonathan and Jill are great hosts and do everything they can to make your trip a success. Fishing was great, Captains friendly and knowledgeable, they work hard to get you into fish. Plan to return and would recommend Tailhunter to anyone.

This was the first time I ever went sports fishing. I am now hooked (pun intended). The first morning I caught my limit fo dorado and sierra. Our captain new exactly where to go and how to fish for both the dorado and sierra. I intend to go again later this year to get some tuna. There are so many different species of fish and Tailhunter's know where they are and what they like to bite. I highly recommend them to eveyone who wants a terrific fishing experience in La Paz!
