Fish Caribe - 50’ Billfish

482 Avenida Manuel Fernández …
San Juan, Puerto Rico

“Billfish” is a recently restored Ronin 50, extremely comfortable and fully rigged with top of the line equipment. Fish with us and feel like you are in your own boat with our very experienced captain and mate. We run year round and target the specific pelagic species passing through our waters at that moment.

We offer the best equipment you can get, fishing on the heavy tackle season with Alutecnos Rods and Reels and Shimano Reels with custom Rods for the light tackle season.

Our boat is docked in the San Juan Bay Marina, just a 10 minute ride from the airport and 2 minutes from old San Juan and the condado area. On the way out you will see a unique view of the Governor’s palace “La Fortaleza” and the old fort “El Morro” originally built on the 1500’s.

At just 1 mile offshore is very deep drop that is very common to hook up Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Barracuda, and Kingfish among other species. We have fish all year round, but remember that pelagic fish are seasonal fish, so we don’t always target the same species. We also have a FAD system (Fish Aggregation Device), that works very well and retain fish all year round.

Captain Rafi was a great guy, our mate was wonderful, the boat was great, the sales job was terrible.  Simply put, when I booked our trip, I specifically said we wanted to catch Tuna and Mahi, and didn’t care about Marlin, Captain Jose, who we booked with, not Captain Rafy, said, and I quote, “our baits don’t discriminate”, which at the time kind of sounded good, however, as it turns out, what he should have said was, “there are no Tuna or Mahi here this time of year”.  When we arrived and I was talking to Captain Rafy about Tuna and Mahi, he looked at me like I had three heads, it was clear that these species aren’t around in June.  We spent 3/4 of the day trolling for Marlin, which, apparently, aren’t around this time of year either!  Not a single sighting..  My fault for not doing more research on the seasonal aspects of fish species.  The moral of the story is I am SURE these guys can catch fish, if there are any fish around to catch.  Do your homework.  I guess I can’t blame a guy for trying to make a buck.  Again, nothing against Rafy or the mate, this one lies squarely on Captain Jose, who booked us with completely inaccurate expectations.  Just trying to help people get what they are expecting.

Photo shows our mate hard at work!  Trust me, I fell asleep as well!

Had a great day on the Billfish with Captain Raphi and First Mate Kevin.  Bite was very slow but we did land a sizable white marlin so everyone left happy!  We also came across an enormous pod of whales which was very cool.  Boat and crew could not have been better.
