trip description for Tarpon and Snook Fishing in Carolina

Hit the water with Captain Angel and fish the inshore areas of Loíza! On this 4 to 8-hour action-packed adventure in one of the top Tarpon fishing spots in the world, Captain Angel will help you target these "Silver Kings" and maybe even some Snook, Jack Crevalle, or Spanish Mackerel. On this trip, you'll be fishing right at the home of these "inshore giants" in the heart of the Torrecilla lagoon. This is one of the 6 lagoons around San Juan interconnected by mangrove canals, which are collectively a top 5 Tarpon fishing location Worldwide. Listen closely to Captain Angel’s advice - he knows where the fish bite! Tarpon are acrobats of the ocean and put on a spectacular show in the air! Whether you’re using rod and reel or fly fishing, these sometimes 100 plus pound fish love to fight hard. Tides, weather, and moon phases play an essential factor in a Tarpon’s behavior, but these kings are always hungry, biting on both live and artificial bait. Bring your camera because catching a tarpon is a stunning experience that you will want to capture. These fascinating sport fish are catch and release. It only takes one battle with these prehistoric creatures to become completely mesmerized, and you’ll be longing to catch more. You’ll be fishing aboard Captain Angel's 20' Bone Boat 18.6 Island powered by a 115 HP Suzuki engine. She can accommodate 5 anglers and has a live bait well on board. This boat is maneuverable and will get you to the best Tarpon spots with ease. Captain Angel will provide everything you need for a productive day on the water. He will have all rods, reels, tackle, and live bait (included in the price). Trips also include bottled water and a variety of soft drinks, but be sure to bring any snacks that you might need!

    Frank maintained contact up to the day of the Charter. Arrived on time and well prepared. He was knowledgeable of the area and was a great experience. We caught tuna, wahoo, barracuda, red hind grouper, yellow jack, and trumpet fish. Definitely recommend Frank.

    Santiago made the trip fun despite the tarpon being hard to catch. He was on time and interesting to talk with. Seeing manatees and jumping sting rays made the trip. Great guide, would book again!

    Jesse P. with Santiago Javier A. of Carolina, Carolina

  • ★★★★★
    Rafa is the man. He was on time, prepared, informative and knew how to attack tarpon. It was a slow day for the catching side of things but Rafa managed to get us on fish. My wife and I both landed a couple 4 to 5 lb fish and we hooked a bigger fish (12 to 15lb) that gave us a jumping show but came unhooked at the boat. We got to meet Bob the pelican as an added treat. A great day and I can confidently refer Rafa as a good man to fish with

    great event...we caught a variety of species and we even booked Luis for the next day...Luis was simply the BEST! He stayed with us until after dark to make sure we landed our big tarpon...and he did everything he could to make sure we got what we are after...i will always seek Luis and his crew out when i am in PR.

    Captain Carlos did a great job and moved several times to try finding us some fish. Unfortunately, it was a hot day and we didn’t have any luck, but we’ll definitely be booking through Captain again!

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Angel and his crew mate were fantastic they worked very hard to put us on fish but it didn’t work out. One high point was when we returned to the marina Captan Angel spotted some Tarpon so he baited a rod and tossed it in and then let my 7 year old Grandson reel it in. He was really excited to fight that tarpon and talked about it all night. Thank you Captain Angel for your kindness.
