La Historia de Marea

  • Since the early 80's,we have been captivated by the savage strike and fury a large predatory fish unleashes on an artificial lure. The Rodriguez brothers,tropically born and bred, grew up fishing the nutrient rich waters of the sunshine state.
  •  A South Florida native and company co-founder, Captain Carlos D. Rodriguez has been fortunate to call Florida's pristine waters home his entire life. After graduating from the Univerysity of Central Florida and working with local government, he decided to follow his genuine passion and childhood ambition of being a professional in the fishing community. That drove Carlos to owning and operating his own saltwater guide service. After successfully running a light tackle charter operation for a number of years and several more years in the industry working retail, Carlos's bio ranges from both inshore & offshore tournament wins to co-hosting an 11x Telly Award winning tv series on Florida Sport Fishing Television. The show, which airs on the FoxSports Sun network, is a reality based and educationally focused fishing program, teaching anglers of all skill levels the latest in tips,tactics,& techniques to stay connected to anything swimming within Florida and neighboring islands of the Bahamas.

  • After years of experience fishing both the inshore and offshore saltwater arenas, we noticed that several products available managed to "lure" anglers in, yet the components, profiles, actions, and finishes fell short of our expectations.
  • So, fast forward to the spring of 2016 and we decided to take matters into our own hands and develop a series of prominent fishing products featuring native baitfish designs & authentic swimming actions built to drive gamefish loco!
  • Marea's Dynamic brother duo of Carlos and Mauricio, found themselves one evening discussing further plans to develop a concept of natural swimming and acting baitfish profiles that matched the local baitfish around the Florida region as well as the Carribean. No crazy or loud colors would be acceptable, especially if they looked out of place on mother nature's stage. Stretching from coastal forage to offshore baitfish patterns, the company's core concept was born that very night. Marea is proud to offer a native baitfish profile capable of targeting just about anything that swims. 

As passionately obsessed anglers with over 30 years of on the water experience, we've chased everything from snook to sailfish.

To say we're excited to share our knowledge and experience through the development of Marea's natural baitfish profiles & patterns is our commitment to the angling community.

We're extremely confident that our realistic and native baitfish designs will help you land more fish, maximizing the quality of your time spent on the water - PERIOD.
