Captain Antonio was born and raised in Cabo and knows the area very well. He comes from a long line of fishermen and is passionate about fishing. He is very experienced, having crewed many different size vessels, from 30 to 80 feet, in the private and charter sector. Antonio has a very nice personality, smiling often and happy, but always focused on the task at hand: catching fish! He is very service oriented and likes to communicate his plans for the fishing day to his anglers beforehand. He speaks English very well. He is always mindful of his anglers needs and safety on board. He loves fishing for Yellowfin Tuna mainly, especially with the kite, and also Marlin; but he enjoys targeting all species. When he's not working he likes spending time with his family, exploring the ranch areas of Los Cabos and watching horse races.
LARGEST FISH CAUGHT TO DATE (2020):
Mate Nestor was born in Southern Baja, fishing professionally since 2003, when he was only 17. He is a fisherman by blood, as his father and family before him were all fishermen as well.
He really enjoys targeting a large variety of fish, from Sierra, Pargo and Cabrilla to Yellowtail and Roosterfish; and of course all species of Marlin along with Yellowfin Tuna and Swordfish on the surface, when in season. His favorite fish to target are Billfish - and he does this especially well working closely with Captain Antonio, as they have worked together for many years and are like a well oiled machine. Nestor is extremely quick on his feet, with great eyes on the water and always looking to make the most out of the day. He is constantly seeing what fishing tactics will work best under the different conditions, and has many tricks up his sleeve. He is always attentive not only to the fishing, but to his anglers aboard; providing excellent service.

The 46 Billfish’s command deck can be completely enclosed and is climate-controlled. “It’s perfect for anglers who want to get off their feet and cool down as the boat moves from one spot to the next,” says David. The command deck features a salon-like living area with a roomy U-shaped lounge and hi-lo table and a lounge that extends along the starboard side. Both seating areas hold rod storage underneath.
The 46 Billfish’s flybridge is designed with a tournament-style center console walk-around helm. Seating includes a single Release Marine teak chair and lounges to port and starboard and a forward console seat.
Rest up and recharge in the 46 Billfish’s air-conditioned cabin. Featuring high-gloss teak cabinetry and custom Amtico flooring, the fully appointed starboard-side galley has an L-shaped Corian countertop, a two-burner electric stove, a microwave/convection oven, cabinet storage and under-counter drawer-style refrigeration with a built-in ice maker. The private head, which is conveniently located immediately to port of the companionway stairs, has a large walk-in shower with satin nickel fixtures, an attractive Corian-topped vanity with sink and storage and a medicine cabinet with mirrored doors. Easily accessible upper and lower bunks on the port side await weary anglers, and there’s a hanging locker only a few steps away.
