What you'll do

Can you imagine a pre-historic herring flying through the air at the end of your line? This is what you can expect when you fish the backcountry lagoons of La Torrecilla and San Jose lagoons in San Juan, Puerto Rico with Capt. Juan aboard the Extremist. Tarpon are a unique fish and are protected by law. The fishing is 100% catch & release. To catch one is truly an incredible experience as tarpon fight very hard and are known for their awesome jumping ability. The tarpon come to our lagoons to feed and grow, and there plenty of them. The sight of a rolling or feeding school of tarpon at sunrise is a sight to remember. Capt. Juan has been guiding novices as well as fishing pros in these waters since 1996 and is ready to show you an unforgettable experience.

Meet your host, Juan Carlos

Host on Airbnb since 2018
  • Identity verified
I have been tarpon fishing since I could skip school. This passion led me to become a licensed Captain in 1996. I have been chasing tarpon with customers ever since. In 2013 Saltwater Sportsman Magazine named me on the World's Top 50 charter captains. I am very privileged to work doing what I love. No fishing experience? No problem! I will give you the necessary training to make your trip one to remember. Lots of fishing experience? Just hop aboard the Extremist and we will put you on the fish!

Where you'll be

You will be fishing the backcountry lagoons of La Torrecilla and San Jose which are part of the San Juan Bay Estuary System. These lagoons are the perfect environment for tarpon fishing. The shorelines are lined with mangrove trees which shelter the lagoons from the trade winds. The abundance of tarpon in these lagoons were nominated by Sport Fishing Magazine as one of the Top 15 tarpon grounds in the world!
