Captain
Clery Morales

Member since January 2015 San Juan, Puerto Rico
Background
Owning and operating a fishing charter in San Juan PR is a dream come true. I was corrupted at an early age watching my fishing heroes on ESPN outdoors wrangle saltwater species of every variety – and from the time I landed my first Tarpon at the age of 6, I knew there was nothing else I’d rather do with my life.
Techniques
Fishing in the San Jose Lagoon is all about knowing the tides, moon phases, rain, etc. With over 15 years of experience, our captains will do everything in their power to hook a Silver King!
