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!

    This morning trip is for early birds that want to get to the fishing grounds before every body else. We get the bait during sunrise and are already fishing when the sun is up and fish start to move from the channels to the bay or from the bay to the channels depending on the tide. We use live bait in most of our trips and target Tarpon, Jacks, Snook, King mackerel, Barracuda and other bay species!
