Nothing Like a Saltwater Fish Fight!
March 19, 2015 San Juan 1 photo
3 fish landed during Leslie and Steve's afternoon session, of 6 mega bites. Congratulations to their fishing fights of their lifetime so far... To be continued! "Nothing like a Saltwater fish fight." It started in the second drift with a TRIPLE HEADER on the bottom half of the low tide. We got to our honey whole at the right time... At first drift: " don't worry, it will light up like a light switch, the tide just started moving" and at the second drift (((BOOOM!))). Just imagine the energy explotion on our confortable and spacious boat, in face of not one but three over 90 degrees rod bending action with three Saltwater fish on!!! Awesome feeling! This time, we ended landing one and unfortunately a pilot boat captain approach us just as we finished that unforgettable moment, to tell us, in a very polite way, to move from the SPOT cause a huge ship was going to anchor in the area. We did and the bite died out, the magic hour's switch was off and not present at plan B... Nevertheless, we had other strikes and ended landing two more fish, one of them a great size Jack Crevalle (shown on photo) and a almost 30 inch Snook; Steve's first ever! Congratulations to both Leslie and Steve for your biggest catches and saltwater fish fights yet and thank you for allowing us to serve you and to collaborate on your new fishing stories that will last a lifetime and will be shared with friends and family. Gracias amigos! Capt. luis 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.
Hot September Bite Tarpon are biting!
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!
