Excellent fishing trip. Me and my wife had a double and both tarpon were landed. A 85 lb and 120 lb. fish. Also caught another 45 lb. fish. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. GREAT! !! Also, Captain Paco knew where to go and the proper techniques.

Wow! What an adventure! Paco was our guide/owner and he took us out to a lagoon in the early morning for a half-day of fishing. It was a beautiful ride , and along the way we stopped to get fresh bait along the river. Paco attended to us expertly and knew where the fish were. He was patient and worked... More

In Puerto Rico for our sons wedding. Capt. Paco arranged 2 boats for our group. Very short drive from Ocean Park to the boat launch. Met Capt Paco at 5:30 am. Short boat ride to lagoon . Set out baits, shortly after 6am one reel started to scream line out . I grabbed the rod and hung on . Fortunately,... More

We visited in July and my husband did a private fishing tour with Capt Paco for Tarpon. He fished very early in the morning and the location was very close to our hotel in Isla Verde which was great. What a fish he caught! Within the first hour they hooked one. 160+ lb Tarpon! It took over 2hrs for my... More

We fished with Captain Paco today for Tarpon and we could not have asked for a better trip! He worked really hard to put us on fish. We had eight to ten bites and four hook ups. I gave up after catching my second fish, because I was exhausted! Catching a tarpon was on my bucket list, and Captain Paco... More

Caption Paco is a great guide. When we arrived, he was ready & waiting for us to go out on the water. He was friendly & knew where the good spots were. He knows his stuff & was a great teacher on what to do. He always made you feel comfortable. My husband landed a 50lb. tarpon & our friend... More

I was tarpon fishing with Paco in June and had a great experience. I have fished with guides all over the United States and in the Caribbean and Paco is absolutely outstanding. We went out twice for four hours each. The first trip, we hooked three and landed one--75 pounds. The second trip--in the middle of the afternoon--I got the... More
