Bayside Fishing Charters 2

Enjoy the thrill of fishing in San Juan Bay! Join Bayside Fishing Charters for an unforgettable day fishing these pristine waters. Captain Luis Umpierre has over 25 years of fishing experience. He was born and raised within footsteps of the fishing grounds, will take you to his secret honey holes to put you on the fish!

You will be fishing aboard a 20’ Polar bay boat with a 200 HP Mercury engine. This boat is one of the most comfortable on the market for inshore fishing. It has huge casting decks, two extra-large livewells, plenty of seating space, and excellent handling when the seas get rough in the bay.

Capt. Luis will provide you with all the fishing equipment you’ll need – rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live bait. If you’re up for some more adventure, you can try fly fishing, just let your captain know so he can prepare the gear. If you want to take some of the catch home to the table, he’ll be happy to clean and fillet the fish.

These waters are known for the variety of species that inhabit them, so there’s always something you can target. Capt. Luis’s specialty is using live bait for the main target species which include big Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, Snook, King Mackerel, and Great Barracuda.

The crew has been in business for a couple of years and is thankful for all the opportunities that their customers have provided. They get to do what they love for a living. They love fishing, love taking customers on fishing adventures, and have proven a continued success fishing the waters where they were raised.

Come explore the crystal clear waters of San Juan Bay with Bayside Fishing Charters and have an unforgettable time!

    This morning trip is for early birds that want to get to the fishing grounds before everybody else. We get the bait during sunrise and are already fishing when the sun is up and fish start to move from the channels to the bay or from the bay to the channels depending on the tide. We use live bait in most of our trips and target Tarpon, Jacks, Snook, King mackerel, Barracuda and other bay species!
