Another Grand Slam
February 05, 2015 San Juan 3 photos
Congratulations to the Thompson crew from Utah for accomplishing a San Juan Bay GRAND SLAM with Captain luis burgos from Bayside Fishing Charters. It all started as soon as their cruise ship docked. Under a crystal clear morning, with excelent bay conditions, we headed straight to a very productive spot with a baitwell full of big Greenies and at first cast we where welcome with a good Tarpon. Then a 15 lbs Jack Crevalle cruched one of the Sardines giving Andy the fish fight of his life. Finally we made a stop at another location to catch and release over 15 bottom fish, which one of them turned to be a King Mackerel (last cast) wich completed a great 4 hour day of fishing with a Grand Slam. Grateful for giving us the opportunity to serve and very happy to know that they will be able to share this lifetime and special moments with family and friends. Gracias amigos! Captain luis burgos

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.

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!
