If you’ve heard of heard about Tarpon fishing and would like to know what all the fuss is about, then look no further than Backwater Tarpon Fishing Charters. Owned and operated by Captain Felix Cuadrado, they are your resident experts when it comes to tackling the Silver King in his own backyard.
You’ll be fishing on a 19’ Bay Craft skiff that is powered by a single 115 HP Mercury four-stroke engine. Skiffs are the perfect vessel for Tarpon fishing as the flat deck gives you enough freedom to walk effortlessly around the boat while minimizing the risk of falling and/or getting the line tangled.
This vast lagoon is perfectly suited for marine life, providing infinite sources of bait all year round for the resident fish. Targeting the Silver King will be your main priority, but there are other fish around as well. The local Tarpon population can range anywhere from 20 lbs all the way up to 150 lbs.
Captain Felix will provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a fun time on the water. All you need to bring is a pair of polarized sunglasses, some sunscreen, and a go-getter attitude. Once you’ve danced with the Silver King, you’ll be hooked for life.

No fish or bites. Was informed half way through trip that it was an extremely slow part of the year. Would have like to have known that information before wasting my money. Also if you’re an active fisherman, definitely do not recommend. Fishing style is, Guide baits pole, casts pole, sets hook then hands to you to reel. Had to request a spare pole with a lure just to keep myself entertained

We had a great afternoon on the water with Captain Felix! It was a beautiful day and my husband and I both caught Tarpon! We also caught a Barracuda and a Snook! My husband hooked a 60+ pound Tarpon, but he bit the hook in half! Those fish are crafty! It really was a fun trip and we would recommend it to anyone wanting to do a little fishing while in PR.
