Captain
Alex Oben

Member since June 2014 San Juan, Puerto Rico
Background
Captain Alex Oben has over of a quarter of a century of fishing experience. He has been fishing in the area his whole life and that vast experience gives him the best possible knowledge about all the necessary fishing tricks and hack. Captain Alex specializes in trolling and loves having groups of friends who like to have fun on board.
Techniques
Depending on the time of year and what species we are going for, we choose what kind of tackle we want to use. We generally pull a mix of natural and artificial bait behind the boat doing around 7-8 knots, waiting for that fish to show up. From January to April we target Mahis, Tunas, Wahoos, Sailfish and White Marlin using light tackle (20-50 pound test line). From May to August we switch up to heavy tackle (80-130 pound test line) and chase Blue Marlin averaging 250 pounds. And from September to December we go back to light tackle and chase a mixed bag of Blue Marlin, White Marlin and Sailfish.
