Fajardo Fishing

Well-rounded fisheries are hard to come by these days, which is exactly why Fajardo's diverse fishing potential is so enticing to vacationing anglers. Billfish fan? The notorious Puerto Rico trench - affectionately nicknamed 'Marlin Alley' - lies only a few miles from the dock, responsible for countless Marlin, Sailfish and even Spearfish bites reported all year round. Looking to wet your favorite fly? Fajardo is a well known hub for inshore grand slams, with Tarpon, Snook and Bonefish hotspots all within a short run from the city's marinas. Finally, ample Dorado and Blackfin Tuna schools are a dream come true for anyone searching for some quality light tackle action, with a variety of Snappers, Groupers and many others making sure bottom fishermen aren't to be disappointed either!
