Went fishing on Saturday, April 15, 2017

My family and I booked a 3/4 day trip on the Legend.  We were on the Mahi early and had 2 triple hook-ups.  Lost a few but that was fine.  Took 5 back to the dock with us.  Had a small bill fish chasing the teaser but couldn’t get it to take the ballyhoo.  Had two other bites that cut the line (barracuda or wahoo).  We ended up extending the trip for an additional two hours making it a full day trip.  At the very end we had tune breaking in the distance but were not able to get to them in time before they scattered.  Would’ve been great to get a tuna but my kids getting to watch them jump high out of the water was better than catching one.  Captain Martinez and deckhand Jose were really nice and we would definitely fish with them again!!

I am an experienced angler.  Captain Martinez and his mate, Jose were very hospitable, knowledgeable and maintained a well equipped boat.  We caught three dolphin in the 20 to 25 lbs. range.  We fished within sight of the shore line the whole trip. Seas were calm. They cleaned all the fish with expert precision.  I will fish with them again when I visit.

We took our very first fishing trip that lasted 6 hour. Sea was rough the first couple hours and rained a little. The weather finally calmed down and we caught (1) Marlin. Staff was very nice and helpful . The next time we come to San Juan, we will book another trip and try again. Thanks for a good time!

The captain and crew were GREAT!!!  However, there was a storm over the Atlantic and the waves were 10-15 ft MONSTERS.  Even the Captain and Crew had trouble standing!!!!  They kept asking if I was sea sick (I wasn’t) but we had to stay on the outside of the cabin. . . .each wave caused my husband and myself to be throw upward and they BOOOM. . .landing on an ice chest repeatedly IS NOT very comfortable.  I called the Tour company when we returned at 11 (our tour was supposed to be until 2) and requested information on WHY we were sent out in such conditions.  They just said sorry. . .not our fault, no refund (of any type) is available.  What a RIPOFF!!!!

Captain Javier, our boat and all the fishing gear was impeccable.  Javier made sure the boat stayed cleaned and clutter free.  Unfortunately, we had to spend an hour plus trying to catch bait fish before we could actually start our trip.  I feel there should have been another alternative, for what if we hadn’t caught any bait, then what?  After pulling up enough bait fish, we still only caught 1 tarpon and 1 lady fish the entire time we were out on our excursion.  The 1 tarpon we caught, when trying to take photo’s, Xavier accidentally dropped the fish back into the water, missing our photo op.  He was trying to clean the fish off before the pics, which was a kind gesture, but it simply just got away from him, it happens, we realize this and we really liked Xavier.  We felt he was good at his job, he was friendly, hands on and very helpful, we just didn’t have a good fishing experience in respect to actually catching fish, but again, it happens.

Most amazing trip ever not only Capt Jose and first mate Jose took us for a beautiful ride overlooking the San Juan Bay and El Morro but we also landed a glorious 40 lbs white Marlin that my 8 year old was able to reel in. Highly recommended

We are an experienced fishing charter group.  ..Taking one or two charters a year.  I can say that Capt Castillo’s boat, equipment and crew is the best we’ve ever experienced.  We will be back.
