Our gear and fleet
Our (rental) gear
We want to give you the best chance at landing the fish of your dreams here at Los Buzos, so the tackle we rent out is not your typical tackle rental package. We set you up with three rods and three reels along with two lures and a live bait rig to get you off to a good start. Anything else you want to use you are welcome to bring with you or purchase in our tackle store on site. If you prefer to bring your own gear then you’re more than welcome to do so. Below details can give you an idea of what we think works best for our fishery.
Live bait combo
Accurate Fury 600 spooled with 300yds of 65 lb Diamond braid with a 150 ft top-shot of 60lb mono paired with a 6’6’’ Star Rods XXH 50- 200lb rated jigging rod. This will be your Live Bait/Big-Game setup. It is what we catch 90% of our giant roosterfish and cubera snappers on. We rig it up with a 6ft 80lb fluorocarbon leader and 13/0 circle hook. This combo has consecutively landed countless massive roosterfish and cuberas. We lost count at 100!
Heavy jigging/popping combo
Daiwa BG 5000 spooled completely with 65lb Diamond braid paired with a 6’6” Star Rods XXH 50- 200lb Jigging Rod. This combo is what we use for jigging, popping and trolling artificial lures. It has the perfect mix of strength for pulling those huge groupers up, length for casting poppers at schools of tuna and rock outcroppings and light weight so you don’t wear out your shoulder too fast while jigging.
Light action / bait catching combo
Diawa BG 4000 spooled completely with 15lb Diamond braid paired with a Star Rods Stellar Lite 7ft 10- 20lb rod. This combo is what we target bait and other smaller fish with. It is the perfect setup for everything from tossing a crappie jig to a school of blue runners (for that good live bait), to launching a small popper to a school of roosters, or dropping our famous XPS jig down to a school of snapper to bring home some dinner!
Want to rent our gear?
Want to travel light or don’t have the right gear available? We have above gear available for rent! The rods only package is $100 for the week (3 rods) and the complete package which comes with 3 rod/reel combos, line and tackle to get you started is $250 for the week.
Our kayak fleet
We have a fleet of 13 Hobie Outbacks, 5 Jackson Kayak Coosa FDs, and 2 Lightning Strike kayaks available for use. All of these kayaks have been rated as top performing offshore kayaks with great stability and comfort. The Outback and Lightning kayaks both use a very similar pedal drive system, while the Jackson Pedal drive is more like a bicycle style. You are welcome to try both on your stay as many anglers prefer different styles. All of the kayaks have a weight capacity of at least 400lbs and seats designed for ultimate comfort, which is very important when spending so much time in them throughout the week.
What do our kayaks come equipped with?
To provide the highest level of comfort and safety we outfit all anglers with top of the line gear. All of our kayaks come equiped with:
- Spyderco Waterway Knife – specifically designed for hardcore kayak fishing
- Heavy duty Tsunami pliers
- Railblaza camera booms – to mount your GoPro or action camera
- 4 Railblaza Starports

With a setup like this you will be about as outfitted as it gets in the kayak fishing world, and we are thrilled to be able to set YOU up with it!
