Efrén was born into a fishing family in Mazatlán, México. He started fishing on a charter boat with his father when he was just 9 years old and fished for many years with the Star Fleet of Mazatlán. As his younger brothers grew up, he taught them to fish also. Eventually, Efrén and his family moved to Cabo San Lucas where he has been fishing since 1990. Before beginning his career with Güerita Sportfishing, he was Captain on the Bob Marlin. Efrén has been at the helm of Güerita Sportfishing vessels for the past 16 years and has earned a reputation of being one of the best charter boat Captains in Cabo San Lucas. He has been actively participating in all the tournaments that Cabo San Lucas is famous for, twice winning the Release Division (1st day) in the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament. He also has won 1st Place in the Overall Release Division in the Bisbee.
Although our boats are equipped with state-of-the-art electronics, Efren’s ability to find fish with his bare eyes is utterly amazing. Finding fish from incredible distances, he has earned the nicknames “Hawkeyes” and “The Fish Finder General,” the latter given him by a long-time client from England. Finding Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna, Dorado or any of the numerous species of game fish in Cabo is second nature to Efrén.
In addition to being a well-qualified and responsible charter boat captain, Efrén also knows the mechanics of our boat like the back of his hand. Efrén has the extra advantage of being able to fix just about any problem one can encounter while at sea. Although Guerita III is meticulously maintained, having the ability to deal with any mechanical failure is an added bonus.
Come fishing with me – I’ll make sure you have the time of your life!
I’ll take you fishing – not site seeing!
