Hawaiian's 1st Ever Kingfish!
January 23, 2015 San Juan 2 photos
Great day today (3/6) @ Bayside Fishing Charters! Roy from Hawaii caught his first ever Kingfish and a nice one too and Calvin from Florida landed his 1st ever Tarpon! Congratulations to both for earning new and unforgettable fish stories to share with friends and family. All possible while fishing San Juan Bay Puerto Rico with Bayside Fishing Charters and Captain Luis Burgos. Lots of over 90 degrees rod bending action this afternoon (4 hr.) Although the bait today was not cooperating, we manage to get enough to make it happen. It all started a minute after the first cast. We had the first agressive strike which the fish ended pulling the hook, followed by another one which turned to be a nice Tarpon and landed right at the end of the low tide. Then it slowed down and finally the bite turned on like a light switch, closing the day with two more (Tarpon and the Kingfish). They both crushed the bait on the surface! Amazing sight to see right at the sunset moments. Ones again, congratulations and thank you for choosing us. Gracias amigos! Captain luis burgos Bayside Fishing Charters

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!
