Bayside Fishing Charters 2

Avenue Fernandez Juncos
San Juan, Puerto Rico

Enjoy the thrill of fishing in San Juan Bay! Bayside Charters’ specialty is using live bait for their main target species which include Tarpon ( which can grow up to 100 pounds in the bay), Jack Crevalle, (known for the most fierce battles), Snook, King Mackerel (tasty fish that they will fillet for you to take home), Great Barracudas and other bay species.

You will be fishing aboard a 20 foot Polar bay boat with a 200 HP Mercury engine. This boat is one of the most comfortable on the market for inshore fishing, with huge casting decks, two extra large livewells, plenty of seating space and excellent handling when the seas get rough in the bay.

Capt. Kevin Gil, is a young USCG licensed captain who has been fishing all his life. He was born within walking distance of the San Juan Bay and has developed his fishing skills since he was a child. He is the perfect overall Captain that will always find ways to put you on the fish. He dominates all fishing techniques in order change strategies if the bite gets slower.  You will not be disappointed with Capt. Kevin!

USCG licensed Captain Luis Caceres with over 25 years of fishing experience, born and raised within footsteps of our fishing grounds will take you to his secret honey holes to get you on the fish!

We took an early morning 5 hour trip and didn’t catch one fish. We kept changing location but never changed the bait we were using or gear. After an hour or 2 of not even a bite you would have thought the Captain would have changed something. Would not take this charger again.

What a treat! Capt. Frankie was the perfect guide. My 16 yrs old and myself are rookies. He was so patient explaining everything. We tried many spots, different strategies, speed, bait etc.
He gave us an explanation for everything and even a bit of history. We fished for bait, sardines which was fun. When we got the tarpon that was the highlight of our trip. We loved it, definitely will recommend to anyone that loves the sea, fishing and stunning views of the Morro at Sunset!! My son had a great time, we will definitely use this company and Captain again. Everything from booking, to paying, and meeting each other at the Marina was very essy.
Money well spent and lifetime memories!!!!
Thanks Captain Frankie:)

Captain Luis was really friendly and accomodating. A fun trip even though we were unable to catch any fish as it was a slow bite. He even extended the trip to try to get us on fish at no charge. Good guy
