Blue Rush PR Fishing Charters

Blue Rush PR Fishing Charters invites you to join them on the waters of San Juan, Puerto Rico. If you’re looking to experience some great hits on the hottest fishing grounds and enjoy spectacular nature, look no further.

Enjoy your ride aboard a 22’ NauticStar center console boat, powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. This is a seaworthy boat with plenty of room for 6 anglers. It’s rigged with top-notch navigational electronics, such as a VHF radio, GPS, and a fishfinder. The vessel has a multimedia system, 2 live wells, an ice-box, and an anchoring system to make sure you stay rooted.

The crew has tailored various packages to choose from. If you want to see what the inshore fishing in Puerto Rico has to offer, you can choose a morning or an afternoon package. The captain will take you to his secret hot spots, where you will get a chance to enjoy backwaters or reef fishing.

For those anglers who want some bigger action, the crew offers 4 and 6-hour trips to the “Marlin Alley” to target Mahi Mahi, White and Blue Marlin, Yellowfin, Skipjack, and Blackfin Tuna, and many more species.

Or just combine fishing and sightseeing during a 2-hour Fishing Eco Tour. Whilst admiring the stunning scenery of El Morro Fort, you will also get a chance to see what is biting. And who knows, maybe you’ll find Tarpon, Snook, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, and many other species at the end of your line?

For your trip, the crew will provide the necessary fishing gear and tackle to make your catch possible. It includes Penn and Shimano rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live and dead bait, and lures. They will offer snacks and refreshing drinks, and lunch can be arranged upon request. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and filleted for you to have dinner afterwards.

Explore some of the most beautiful waters in the world with Blue Rush PR Fishing Charters, and have some fun in Puerto Rico!
