Great Fishing on Christmas Week
December 27, 2016
This week the bite has been very good. Caught plenty of snook and jack crevalle on the back channels to keep us entertained. The story of the week was the monster tarpon caught on Wednesday the 27th. After a thrilling hour and a half fight, Capt. Luis managed to catch and release a huge tarpon estimated at 85+ pounds. One of the biggest tarpon caught this year.

September 17, 2016
September month bite has been hot! Tarpon are hungry and they are biting. This week, the high tide was the best time. We got our bait early in the morning and as soon as the high tide started coming in, tarpon were in action. Released 4 tarpon on saturday. Had two first timers and they were thrilled!
Tarpon and Snook at the Bay
May 29, 2016
Beautiful day with flat seas gave us the opportunity to do some early reef fishing to target the tasty King Mackerel and Yellowtail Snappers. To our surprise, the bite was very slow at the reef and after no action at the reef, we decided to target the tarpon and snook at the channels. On our way back to the channels, we found a huge bait ball in the middle of the Bay and managed to fill our two livewells with a single shot. We were ready for the tarpon! Tarpon were not rolling at the channels, but we knew they were there! 5 minutes after throwing in lines, we hook up with a huge snook that unfortunately pulled the hook after couple of minutes. They were biting! Next drift, we hook up with a decent 6 pound snook that gave a good fight and gave us the first catch of the day. On the next drift we were able to catch and release a decent tarpon as well. We decided to go back to the bay to target the elusive jack crevalle to complete our Inshore Grand Slam but no luck. We hooked up with another tarpon that pulled the hook after a couple of jumps. Overall, a successful fishing trip, happy clients and happy captain!
Tarpon, Mackerels are Kings Hot Bite
May 14, 2016
This week's fishing was lots of fun filled with lots of fishing action. Saturday Morning went out reef fishing early in the morning before the wind picked up and caught two HUGE Mackerels with live bait. The wind picked up later and came back to target the tarpon. Jumped off a nice one after a couple of jumps. Clients took fresh fillet to a nearby restaurant "El Pescador" and had a blast. Saturday Afternoon had a nice mixed bag action releasing a tarpon, barracuda and snappers. Sunday Morning was filled with action. Caught 15 Mackerels and a tuna out of 25+ bites! We also had the thrill to see a HUGE Barracuda attacking two of our hooked fish. We enjoyed a couple of spectacular jumps by the barracuda on its full wildlife behavior getting its morning breakfast! Clients had a blast and took home some dinner too!
Mixed Bag Action Continues!
April 16, 2016
Mixed bag action continues at San Juan Bay. We had perfect weather during the week and were able to take our customers to do some reef fishing for the hard fighting and tasty King Mackerel. Caught nice king mackerels on our reef fishing trips including 2 over 23 pounds! Also caught a 20 pound barracuda. The inland fishing was also good with tarpon and jack still biting. Caught nice Jacks averaging over 25 pounds and tarpon bite has slowed down a bit but they are still biting!
