About the Captain

Luis Burgos
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Member since September 2015
Born and raised around the local waters of San Juan, PR. and have been fishing since I was in diapers. I started fishing with aluminum cans as a fishing pole and after catching my first fish I was hooked and it was with a Sardine. Now, that's the bait of choice for our inshore outings! Lol. From there I gradually graduated to fishing inshore and deep sea fishing as a USCG Certified 100 ton Captain and as a tournament angler. Experiences like beeing part of fishing teams with multiple 1st places wins and being Director of some of the main fishing tournaments of the island, will contribute towards building memories for you, your friends and/or family that will last a lifetime. Now when looking back, feeling pretty grateful and decided to found the Caribbean Fishing Academy with the purpose of teaming up with great people to help get kids off the streets and promote a better quality of life through fishing. Part of your booking is going towards this good cause. Gracias amigos!

We had a great experience fishing with Captain Luis in San Juan. Overall he was very responsive before the trip, and extremely helpful and knowledgeable during the fishing. The night before the trip he set us up with an Uber to arrive at the dock and we met him there an hour earlier than regularly scheduled because he thought the fishing conditions might be better. The first spot we went to we did not have much luck so he offered to take us to a place where mahi mahi were regularly found. We caught two mahi mahi over 30 inches at this spot and had a great time doing it! We went back to the first spot to try again and had a tarpon on the line but I was unable to reel it in. We did not catch as many fish as we hoped but we still had a great time. On the way back he gave us a tour of some of the landmarks around the island. Luis was very fun to be around and I would highly recommend booking him for a fishing trip if you are in San Juan.
