Background
Group fishing in Puerto Rico in all tournaments on the Island; mate for Captain Eduardo Alcaide at Tropical Fishing Charters from 1993 to 2006. By that time, Tropical fishing charters were running 4 boats - 31' Beltrán, 39' Topaz, 41' Hatteras and a 50' Hatteras
Techniques
We troll; we are always fishing for Marlin and any other big game fish (Wahoo, Tuna, Dorado, King Fish). We run from the heaviest tackle to a 12lbs spinning tackle, so we can catch anything from the smallest Bonito to a giant Marlin.

We were new to Puerto Rico so we drove down to see the marina and met the Capt. The rain broke the next day for our charter and the sea was pretty calm. As it was, we were fishing, not a lot of catching. Lisa, my wife got a 15 lb or so, Barracuda. She loved it. The Captain was extremely accommodating and a pleasant to visit with. Gave us a lot of history of the area. His 1st mate was great also and kept us informed on tactics and lure & bate choices. Just an all around great time. Thanks Captain Osva.

Beautiful day with Captian Osva and his first mate!  Didn’t catch a lot of fish but not for a lack of effort. Would absolutely choose Captain Osva again.

The seas were very rough and the trip probably should have been cancelled or rescheduled.  The fishing was very slow. We did catch one king mackerel on a 3/4 day trip.

We had a great trip with Capt. Osva and first mate Julio.  The boat and equipment were in excellent condition. We did not catch a lot of fish, but everyone had some action.  Capt. Osva made a strong effort to get us on the fish.  We caught one Mahi Mahi , lost one and caught two Barracuda and some other fish.  The Mahi Mahi was a big hit with our group that evening fresh off the grill.
I would recommend Capt. Osva to anyone looking for a good fishing experience.

Seasonally high winds kept us from going offshore but we caught a few fish inshore.  We did the fish and lunch/swim package which was perfect for this weather and enjoyed by my wife and three children.  Very professional service throughout- both fishing and the cooking and serving of lunch as we swam.

If I go down in better weather. I would use him again!

We had a great time on our 1/2 day charter. Captain Osva and first mate Irving were very informative and attentive. Even though I got a bit seasick, it was a great excursion and we caught 6 fish (3 that we kept).

While we only caught one fish, we very much enjoyed our trip.  Both Captain Osva and his mate Diego were friendly and knowledgeable.  Definitely a great time!

I really enjoyed the experiance. I took my parents and my wife on a 3/4 day trip.
Pros: We did catch a few fish! which was the most important part of the trip. 3 barracudas(one was very big), 2 different types of `jack`, a king fish, and a spanish wanderer. Very well equipped boat for fishing andbig enough for most weather conditions.
Cons: it wasnt the best day to go out, we didnt get too much rain until we were about to dock, but the wind was rediculus, the ocean swells were just huge! Having no experience I later wished we had scheduled a different day. At least i thought we were going to take it easy (stay near shallow waters and behind an island to block the wind) but we never actually made it to the back side of the island. By the time we got there it was time to head back.
my mom was sick after the first 30 mins, as soon as we started going out into the deep high waves, and she was sick for hours. On the way back i asked the capt. To just pull in the fish lines and get back as fast as possible. Its not fun to be throwing up for hours and you cant just step off, you have to go all the way back. At least on the way back we did speed up(a little) and capt. Osva tryed to stay behind some small islands where the waves werent so big.

Fishing was a bit slow on our trip, but that’s why its called fishing and not catching. The crew was fantastic, Capt. Osva and Irving were both very accommodating and kept in touch prior to our trip. We would recommend and use this group again for a trip.

CAPTAIN AND FIRST MATE KNOW WHAT THERE DOING AND HOW TO FIND FISH.THEY USE LIVE BAIT AND KNOW HOW TO TROLL THE WATERS FOR FISH. THEY HAVE ALL THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT AND OVER TEN LINES GOING AT ONCE. I WHICH I COULD HAVE UPLOADED SOME OF OUR PHOTES BECAUSE WE HAVE SOME REALLY GOOD ONES. THE BOAT WAS IN GREAT CONDITION. WE WERE STAYING IN SAN JUAN BUT CHOOSE TO DRIVE HERE TO FISH WITH THIS VESSEL. WERE GLAD WE MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE. THANKS FOR THE EXCELLENT TIME!!!

We had a good time fishing with Captain Osva overall. Great communication leading up to the trip and a good solid effort during. Good weather, water was a little choppy and slow fishing though (hey…it happens). My 11 year old got seasick and chummed a couple of times, but caught a pair of barracudas that more than made up for it. Irving (deck hand) was fantastic with the kids and gave it his all. I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in going fishing near Fajardo.
