If you thought that America's best Tarpon fishing started and ended in Florida, think again! Puerto Rico is home to some absolutely legendary Tarpon, and Captain Luis is a true expert when it comes to finding, fighting, and landing these legendary gamefish....Read More
Tarpon are one of the most sought-after inshore gamefish for good reason. The "Silver King" are tough to hook, but once they're on, they'll really test your stamina, strength, and skill with hard runs, huge jumps, and crazy tail-walking as they try get off the line. You'll chase these fish using a variety of baits and lures, depending on the season and conditions. Captain Luis knows what to throw out there, and he's also happy to give you some tips and tricks to land these beautiful fish. In addition, there are always great opportunities to catch Snook, which are extremely fun to catch and share the same habitats are Tarpon.
On the day of the trip, you'll set out aboard Captain Luis' 17' Mako center console. It's a perfect boat for this area, with a 90 HP Evinrude engine to get your out there, plus GPS, fishfinder, and live well for your bait. Captain Luis will provide everything you need, including top-of-the-line rods, reels, bait, and tackle, so that all you have to do is cast out, hook up, and then hold on for the fight of your life! To maximize your time on the water, make sure to bring proper clothing, a hat, sunscreen, and a camera! Any trip with Captain Luis is sure to be picture-worthy, and Tarpon are a particularly photogenic fish.
Captain Luis was born and raised in Dorado, Puerto Rico, and the North Coast has been his playground since he was a young boy. With 21 years of professional charter experience, and more than 30 years of fishing experience in total, he's a true expert whose passion is obvious....Read More
As a kid, Luis fished every weekend with his friends and entered many fishing tournaments around the island, mastering different light tackle techniques. He then worked his way up as a mate on offshore sport fishing charter boats. In the late '90s, he got his U.S.C.G. Captain's License and started working as a captain on private sport fishing yachts as well as inshore fishing charters. Working on private sport fishing yachts gave him the opportunity to fish all around Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
Captain Luis is now a 100-ton Master Captain and a member of the Puerto Rico Light Tackle Anglers Club, IGFA, and Puerto Rico Sportfishing Association. He loves to show all levels of angler what the "Isla de Encanta" has to offer!

Captain Luis made our fishing trips in Puerto Rico absolutely amazing. One day of deep sea fishing and peacock bass the next. He Definitely helped us create lifelong memories. If we ever return to Puerto Rico, we will definitely call him again!
