Great Bite @ San Juan Bay Puerto Rico
December 30, 2014 San Juan 3 photos
Lots of action this morning. 6/1, a combination of Jacks, Snook and Tarpon. Congratulations to Kai and Helms power team from NJ for catching their biggest fish yet. A high barometric pressure today due to a cold front, produced 6-8 foot waves OFFSHORE but thankfully our action occurs INSHORE at the calm waters of the San Juan Bay. In other words the sea conditions out there only produced an incredible bite action in the bay and without the hassle of dealing with unfavorable sea conditions. We only had 8 - 9 knot winds with about only 1-2 feet waves which is excellent to enjoy a great day at the bay. This weather conditions lighted up the big fish bite. Our guests Kai and Helms experienced a very active and aggressive rod bending action and even a 70 plus Tarpon fly as he, unfortunately, pulled the hook. Never the less, they manage to capitalize on the biggest fish of their lives yet with a pretty long and fun fight. We will keep you posted but looking forward in having you as a guest so you can also see it and enjoy it first hand. Gracias amigos!

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!
