The fishing in the lagoons for tarpon has produced some intense action. In a period of 2 1/2 week for tarpon fishing we achieved 203 tarpon bites were most of them were 15 to 30 pounds with a good number of 60+ pounders landed. This action is not under mangrove branches were you average 3-8 pound tarpon and in numbers that can make any young kid feel like a pro. This is the time of the year were we fish some intense incoming tides on full moon periods matching early night to midnight. This combination can produce up 12 bites of 50-100+ pound tarpon. These strong incoming tides not only produce big tarpon but up to 30 pound snooks as well. Congratulations to Capt. Juan Torruella and Luis Falcon on this 25 pound snook on board Mantis. On June 26, Caribbean Outfitters was booked for a tarpon tournament along with the other 2 active tarpon charter services in the lagoons area. Our two boats finished with winning positions, 1rst place Tarpon Sniper and 3rd place Mantis on the second place was Borinken Fishing Charter, there was no room for “wanna be”. This tournament was for the first 3 biggest tarpon. If you would like to book us for our next October tarpon tournament please contact us for a winning position.
At offshore the marlin and tuna action is very competitive. Capt. Juan and Capt. David achieved 34 tunas on 3 1/2 days on green water close to the 100 fathom line. Today we went just for blue marlin on a hot bite were Big Kahuna raised 5 blue marlin, Blue shadow raised 2 and First Lady landed a 275 pound blue marlin. Almost every boat fishing today in the north shore San Juan were able to raise at least one blue marlin. We are still open for the International Billfish Tournament in San Juan.
We will have top notch billfish action for blue marlin, white marlin and sailfish all the way until December. Increasing whities and sails from late October to December.
Thank you all for your support.
