Description

Backwater Charters specialize in light tackle and fly fishing, as well as bottom fishing, mainly targeting some of the most sought-after game fish in the Laguna Torecilla and Laguna San Jose, including Tarpon, Snook and Jacks.

Backwater Tarpon Fishing Puerto Rico currently changed locations from San Juan Bay to Cangrejos Yacht Club, our main battle grounds now include the Laguna San Jose and the Laguna Torrecilla, known worldwide for their massive and vast amount of tarpon living on these areas! With the change of location came a change of tackle due to the size of tarpon! Bigger rods, bigger hooks & bigger baits! Since we changed locations our tarpon range from 50-90lbs!!

You’ll be fishing on a 19 ft. long vessel which can accommodate groups of up to 4 fishermen per trip. The boat is outfitted with a conventional range of navigational technology and fish finding equipment, including GPS, Fishfinder and radio.

All the appropriate fishing equipment for your inshore trip is supplied by the Backwater team, complete with both artificial and live bait. Snacks and beverages (bottled water and soft drinks) are also provided for your enjoyment. Guests from nearby hotels also have free transportation.

Owning and operating a fishing charter in San Juan PR is a dream come true. I was corrupted at an early age watching my fishing hero’s on ESPN outdoors wrangle saltwater species of every variety – and from the time I landed my first Tarpon at age 6 I knew there was nothing else I’d rather do with my life.

Felix was great. He knows the waters he fishes. We were surrounded by tarpon. It was a really cool feeling like you were in on a secret. Felix is genuine and knows his fishing. Awesome time and will do it again and recommend to everyone looking for a REEL fishing experience from a guy who was born to fish
