Jose Antonio "Pepe" De la Peña Castillo is from Cabo San Lucas, and has a calm, unassuming manner, until he has a fish on the line! He speaks English well. Pepe has captained vessels ranging from 28 to 75 feet and is well versed in all fishing techniques and safe boat handling.
Pepe says this about fishing: “Fishing is in my blood - I have been doing it since I have the ability to think, but professionally, since I was 23 years old... I love finding new and different ways to land exciting catches".
If he had to pick a favorite fish to catch, which he says is a difficult question, he would choose Yellowfin tuna, Black Marlin and Cabrilla (Grouper).
