Bayside Fishing Charters takes pride in putting their clients on the fish and making sure that everyone on board has the most unique Caribbean fishing experience ever.

They have the ability to customize their trips to any angling skill or specific needs. Their captain’s experience, diversity in fishing, and productivity, combined with the Caribbean flats that their prime locations offer, ensure memories that will last a lifetime.

If you are after one of the most productive and fun inshore fishing charters on the waters of Puerto Rico, hop on board a 20’ Carolina Skiff. This is a center console that can take up to 4 anglers per trip for insurance purposes.

The skiff comes powered by a 115 HP Suzuki 4-stroke engine and is fully outfitted with everything you need for a productive day on the water. You will be provided with quality tackle, bait, fishing licenses, ice, water, and sodas. All you have to do is show up!

Spend your morning or afternoon exploring the inshore waters. Get your hands on Tarpon, Snook, Jack Crevalle, Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish, Barracuda, and other species that patrol the reefs and the mangroves.

Bayside Fishing Charters is located at San Juan Bay Marina, just 10 minutes from the Isla Verde and right on the San Juan Bay.
