Imagine this. You’re on a 20-foot boat with a 35-40 HP motor, about 15 hours worth of gasoline 17 to 19 miles offshore with the most humble fishing tackle provided by your native shipmate (which is why I recommend to take our own tackle), a portable GPS or maybe just a compass, the necessary boat survival equipment enforced by Acapulco state law, surrounded by the most beautiful blue water and hunting some of the most highly prized fish from sunrise to sunset. You are about to learn some of the best fishing techniques that you have ever seen on any fishing trip.
You must remember that these fishermen do not make a living by fishing with tourists; they live off of what they hunt. A good day for them means a catch of approximately six sailfish and two dorado. This translates into about 900 to 1100 pesos (US$90 give or take) once they clean and sell the fish to the best bidder. If you cover his daily earnings plus catch fish, you have a happy shipmate who will not hesitate to take you fishing and even give you a 30-35 pound prize that you can take back to the hotel/resort and have a well-deserved meal cooked by the hotel staff or yourself. You have more than enough fish to bargain with.
This is not to mention if you are willing to take a two- or three-day trip to open sea to hunt sharks, but that my friends is an other story.
