I was born and raised around the waters of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and I've been fishing since I was in diapers. I started fishing with aluminum cans as a fishing pole and after catching my first fish I was hooked and it was with a Sardine. Now, that's the bait of choice for our inshore outings. From there, I worked my way from inshore to deep sea fishing as a USCG Certified 100 ton Captain and as a tournament angler. I was a part of several winning fishing teams and an organizer of some of the main fishing tournaments on the island. My ample experience enables me to put you on the best bite, so that you can share beautiful memories with your friends and family. I am very grateful for everything I have, which is why I decided to create the Caribbean Fishing Academy. Its main purpose will be to team up with great anglers and help get kids off the streets by promoting a better quality of life through fishing. A part of your booking is going towards this good cause.
