Those tarpon are really hard to land, don't be discouraged we lost at least 5 or 6 fish near the boat, they spit hooks really easy or dive and run under the boat and snap lines a lot lol!!

Book a morning trip if possible, afternoons can be brutal with the humidity. Otherwise, definitely recommended

June is more focused on heavy tackle which means fewer bites, but bigger fights. I would probably leave the kids at home on big fish days and bring them out for light tackle days.

It's all about the Captain. Find a good one, trust he or she, and don't look at your watch. Just fish!

Bring sunscreen, fishing/sun shirts, hats and good polarized glasses. If you are not a seasoned or experienced offshore fisher don’t be afraid to take some Dramamine the night before your trip. The seas will get bumpy even on the calmest day. Oh, and be ready to reel hard, fast and often!

This was our first trip. Captain rated sea roughness at 4. For us it was a 9 almost 10. Check Sea Condition don't forget your motion sickness meds. Do it.

If you go in not expecting to catch any fish it will let you enjoy the fishing trip better. You get a really cool view of old San Juan

Bring a cooler if you want to keep your catch. Leave the little ones at home - these are substantial fish that I would recommend for teenagers and above. Pick a charter like Captain Jose with the larger boat to make the trip smoother than on a smaller boat and invest in the 3/4 or full day trip to insure value and catch potential.

Keep in mind that covid regulations are in affect. So the experience might be a little different than you would normally expect. Bait shops are closed and you have to catch your own bait.

If you are looking for a Captain who's passion is putting his customers on fish than Captain Carlos is your man. My experience with Carlos was the high point of my trip to this beautiful paradise. I look forward to returning next year to put in some more time in fishing these productive waters. Fish on Captain, Fish on. Peace

Beginners stay in shore. Off shore is for experienced anglers with patience to hope for a hit on a big sports fish.

This was our first tarpon fishing trip and we had a great trip so I would highly recommend Bayside Charters 2 and Carlos Torres as your guide.

If you're not used to it, the sun can be nearly overwhelming. Come prepared.
