Overview

Boqueron Bay in Cabo Rojo West Coast of Puerto Rico Fishing Information for anglers the island of Puerto Rico is located just a short 3 to 4 hour flight from any major city on the East coast of the United States. Unknown to many, Puerto Rico offers some of the most sensational fly fishing and light tackle opportunities in the Caribbean. The West coast waters offer to any angler a fishing paradise .The area is home to a significant population of year-round resident tarpon. Plenty of larger fish also ply the regions bays, lagoon and estuaries throughout the year. The big Tarpon are present, presumably to take advantage of the warmer waters and plentiful forage.I had the good fortune to call the flats and bays my office for work . Cabo Rojo is a magnificent area to cast a streamer in front of hungry tarpon. I was presented with the options of casting to schools of feeding fish over vast shallow flats, working amongst entangled mangroves to pocket pools & tiny creeks with single fish, and working the magic of the river.

Thoroughly enjoyed yet another trip with Captain "Pochy". We hooked and boated a number of tarpon including one north of 100 lbs. The fish was too large to safely boat (for both the fish and us), so the captain positioned the boat in shallow water....More

This is the 2nd time we booked half a day with Mr. Tarpon. He masters the art of hooking tarpons. Both times we caught plenty of fish including several tarpons we landed. Very spectacular.
