​Ruben Palos

Captain – Strictly Business

Ruben is a skilled fisherman, a highly competent crew chief, a dedicated family man, and above all, a phenomenal boat captain. Originally from Mazatlan, Ruben has been fishing his entire life, inheriting a centuries old family tradition passed down to him by his father and grandfathers. Ruben began fishing professionally at age 16 and has competed successfully in many tournaments since then. Ruben served previously as the First Mate of the Tourbillon, an 87ft vessel managed by Pisces Sportfishing in Cabo San Lucas that fished Alaskan waters in the winters and Baja waters in the summers for a total of seven years. Ruben learned to speak English and fostered many American business contacts during his tenure with Pisces. Ruben later earned his captain’s license in Mazatlan Sinaloa.

Ruben is a mild mannered, kind gentleman who places his client’s satisfaction and passengers’ safety above all else.  Ruben currently lives in Cabo San Lucas with his wife and two young children. We feel fortunate to have him in our service and we know he’ll make sure that your time on the water is rewarding.
