If you are looking for a Captain who's passion is putting his customers on fish than Captain Carlos is your man. My experience with Carlos was the high point of my trip to this beautiful paradise. I look forward to returning next year to put in some more time in fishing these productive waters. Fish on Captain, Fish on. Peace

This was our first trip. Captain rated sea roughness at 4. For us it was a 9 almost 10. Check Sea Condition don't forget your motion sickness meds. Do it.

If you go in not expecting to catch any fish it will let you enjoy the fishing trip better. You get a really cool view of old San Juan

Keep in mind that covid regulations are in affect. So the experience might be a little different than you would normally expect. Bait shops are closed and you have to catch your own bait.

Beginners stay in shore. Off shore is for experienced anglers with patience to hope for a hit on a big sports fish.

Definitely use this company. Make sure to stay hydrated. Enjoy yourself. It is hard not to when you fish with Captain Luis.

This was our first tarpon fishing trip and we had a great trip so I would highly recommend Bayside Charters 2 and Carlos Torres as your guide.

Save your money and not use bayside charters. Boat was not what they said and the captain didnt even have bait ready. Spent almost 2 hours trying to get bait on a 5 hour trip

Go early. Short ride off the coast. Deep water in 1 mile. Never out of sight of land. Watch the weather closely. Changes quickly.

If you are booking in the PM, stay patient and trust your guide the bite usually picks up late in the day.

If you want to catch tarpon, trust your guide. If you want to catch tarpon your way then bring lots of patience.

Be prepared for the short rain showers that can come up quickly and the inland bay and canal fishing was a much more adventurous and fulfilling experience than i expected!

Catch and release is only in the bay. Meat fishing is outside of the bay. The website should specify.

Wait until you get really close to yor trip to book. The weather/winds can be a factor, and should be taken into account.
