Private 3/4 Day Trip (AM) Trip Backwater Tarpon Fishing

If you’ve heard of heard about Tarpon fishing and would like to know what all the fuss is about, then look no further than Backwater Tarpon Fishing Charters. Owned and operated by Captain Felix Cuadrado, they are your resident experts when it comes to tackling the Silver King in his own backyard. You’ll be fishing on a 19’ Bay Craft skiff that is powered by a single 115 HP Mercury four-stroke engine. Skiffs are the perfect vessel for Tarpon fishing as the flat deck gives you enough freedom to walk effortlessly around the boat while minimizing the risk of falling and/or getting the line tangled. This vast lagoon is perfectly suited for marine life, providing infinite sources of bait all year round for the resident fish. Targeting the Silver King will be your main priority, but there are other fish around as well. The local Tarpon population can range anywhere from 20 lbs all the way up to 150 lbs. Captain Felix will provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a fun time on the water. All you need to bring is a pair of polarized sunglasses, some sunscreen, and a go-getter attitude. Once you’ve danced with the Silver King, you’ll be hooked for life.

Went out on a guided trip with captain Felix! He was very knowledgeable and friendly and had a great attitude as well! Even though the fish weren't cooperating that morning we did land a nice size tarpon. I will definitely be coming back to fish again with Backwater Tarpon. Thanks!

Hey, Im Captain Felix Cuadrado San Juan, Puerto Rico Background Owning and operating a fishing charter in San Juan PR is a dream come true. I was corrupted at an early age watching my fishing heroes on ESPN outdoors wrangle saltwater species of every variety – and from the time I landed my first Tarpon at age 6 I knew there was nothing else I’d rather do with my life. Techniques Fishing in the San Juan Bay Marina is all about knowing the tides, moon phases, rain etc. With over 15yrs of experience our captains will do everything in their power to hook a Silver King!
