What to Expect

Savage – Relentless – Acrobatic – Insane

These are words that people use to describe the strike and ensuing battle with a Tarpon. Because of its strength, stamina, and fighting ability, the Tarpon is one of the World’s premier game fish. They also have such large numbers as they are not a target of commercial fisherman fishing in Puerto Rico, so there is no fear of hurting the species by catch and release fly fishing.

Tarpon fishing in Puerto Rico can be incredibly frustrating at times, but many people say that if they could only fish one species for the rest of their life it would be a Tarpon. During the charter, your expert captain and guide will put you onto the fish you have dreamed of catching.


  • Expert captain and fishing guide
  • Live bait (perch, pinfish, greenbacks, and herring)
  • Beverages

The Fishing Boat - BayCraft 19′ Bay Boat

When you are enjoying tarpon fishing in Puerto Rico in our beautiful backwater lagoons with Backwater Tarpon Fishing Puerto Rico, you can rest assured that our vessels will be the most ideal for tarpon fishing.

With our small bay and flat boats, Captain Felix and crew are able to get you to the best flat fishing spots. To get to one of Puerto Rico’s best tarpon fishing spots, we have to go upstream and under two bridges with only four-foot clearance. This is the reason we go tarpon fishing on small boats with no bimini or T-tops.

  • Accommodates up to 4 anglers
  • Designed with tarpon fishing in mind
  • Equipped with a big live-well, GPS/Fishfinder, non-skid, pooling platform, & pooling pole
  • Flat platform permits walking freely around the boat while fighting that massive silver king!
