We had a great day on the water with Captain Juan. It was my 15 year old son and me. My son first catch a 15lb tarpon and later hooked at 100lb+ tarpon that he fought for 3 1/2 hours on light tackle. He got it to the boat several times but we just could not get it in the... More

Great trip but the fishing was slow. We booked a 6 hours trip and had a stretch of 3 hours without a bite. Ended up with 2 in the boat and 5 that we didn't land. Caught a couple of small snook as well. The fishing depends on the tides so the longer the trip the better your chances. Javier... More

My 13 year old son & I spent a morning with Captain Juan tarpon fishing. Excellent guide who works very hard to find and catch fish. We landed 3 big tarpon, including one over 100lbs. that my son fought like a pro. Highly recommend.

Two days ago we fished with Captain Juan and wow, what a morning! At first all we did was watch the tarpons roll by despite all his efforts to lure them. Juan worked continually changing bait and fishing spots. Tried live and dead bait....then BAM! My husband hooked a 100lber and the work began. Under Captain Juan's direction (and about... More

First time tarpon fishing in PR, Captain Javier did not disappoint! Very knowledgeable of tarpon, their behavior and tips to successfully get fish to the boat. Great sense of humor and showed us many wildlife of interest in and around the water - would absolutely recommend!

We have used Extreme Fishing extensively for fishing excursions. They are professional and always try hard to get us our Tarpon. Some days we nailed them..others we had had to really try hard to get bites. No matter what the conditions were they always worked hard to get us on tarpon or snook bites using many different approaches. We hooked... More

This was a fantastic end to our trip to Puerto Rico. My goal before leaving was catching my first tarpon. Success. We landed multiple. None were monsters, but the trip was great. Javier is a great guide and worked hard to put us on the bite. As a fisherman he also let us do some of the work which was... More

My fishing trip with Extreme Fishing PR was wayyyy better than I had ever expected!! I flew to Puerto Rico exclusively for this fishing trip, and so before I came I researched very diligently to make sure that I picked out the best guide. Booking with Captain Juan was definitely the right choice! For my 3 days of fishing I... More

I can't say anything bad about the Captain he was very kind and determined to help us catch a fish, however I felt as though I paid for an expensive boat ride. In fishing there is never a guarantee that you are going to catch a fish every time, however, as fisherman we keep fishing because of the views, the... More

Hands down best fishing experience ever! Captain Juan loves fishing and it definitely shows. 10 minutes into our trip and my boyfriend hooked into his first 80 pound tarpon! In the first two hours we had around 10 hits and brought in 5. I'm not as experienced a fisher as my boyfriend but Captain Juan was very patient and a... More
