Caribbean Outfitters

Explore the other side of fishing in Puerto Rico and head into the backcountry with “Caribbean Outfitters”! You’ll explore the Laguna Torrecilla with Captain Omar Orraca, a world-record-holding fly fisherman with 3 decades of experience.

Board a 24’ Pathfinder bay boat that can accommodate 6 anglers, with 3–4 able to fish at the same time. She’s fully rigged with the latest electronics and navigational equipment, as well as a Bluetooth music system. She’s the biggest inshore fishing boat in Carolina, ensuring you’ll be comfortable all trip long.

It’s all about light tackle on Capt. Omar’s fly fishing and spinning trips. You’ll go after Tarpon, Snook, and Jacks in the endless red mangroves of the Laguna Torrecilla. This is the Mecca for backwater fishing in Puerto Rico and 60–90 lb Tarpon is the norm. There’s no better place to set out in if it’s that trophy catch you’re after.

All of the gear you need for a productive day of light tackle fishing is waiting for you on board. For spinning, you use Shimano Stella spinning reels and Terramar rods. For fly fishing, it’ll be Tibor reels with Sage Xi-2 rods to match.

Your beverages will stay chilled in the cooler and Capt. Omar provides bottled water, soft drinks, and local "Medalla" beers. Experienced anglers also have the option to rent one of his 3 kayaks for $75 a pop. Any catch you choose to keep is cleaned and filleted, just remember that Tarpon and Jack Crevalle are strictly catch and release.

Head on down to Carolina, Peurto Rico for epic inshore fishing with Caribbean Outfitters!

I started guiding when I discovered my passion for marine life and the ocean was equal to my passion for helping people hook their dream catch. Having the opportunity to provide joy and create memories that will last forever is a blessing. I am extremely passionate about Billfish and a lot of people say I have a special talent for Tarpon. I've been featured in over 15 fishing TV shows on broadcasts like ESPN, NBC Sport, Fox Sport, and World Fishing Network, as well as in fishing magazines like Sport Fishing Mag, Florida Sportsman, and Fly Fishing in Salt Water.
