We are Puerto Rico's new and only fly fishing lodge operation. We are currently taking guests and are beyond pumped to show people what the west coast of PR has to offer. In constantly searching for new and different (and FUN) fisheries to expand our small but growing lodge operation, my business partner Matt and I settled on Puerto Rico for lodge #2. The place is absolutely magical, it's a quick easy flight, has loads of natural beauty and of course the fishing is insane!
Tarpon & permit are our target species. The permit fishery is amazing with anglers averaging over 15 shots per day. Permit fishing includes wading coastal flats and polling reef/sand flats for primarily tailing fish with the occasional cruiser. In terms of Tarpon the island has a huge population of resident fish that hang around all year as there is plenty of fresh water run-off, bait, and no need to migrate like our fish in the States. The setup is similar to fishing in Florida, mangrove shorelines and turtle grass and sand flats, however with an added dimension of fishing the beach where these tarpon also cruise. We are the only operation targeting these fish from poling skiffs on the island, so needless to say this massive population of tarpon is very unpressured. Average fish size is from 8-140lbs and we sight fish them in clear water, no chucking at rollers we promise, ha!
Your average day will be waking up at the lodge for coffee and a light breakfast or grabbing something to go to eat on the skiff, jumping in the trucks to head down to the ramp with your guide. Lunch and boat beers are provided and after fishing, a dockside happy hour or dip in the pool is waiting for you. Dinners usually consist of group outings to local restaurants or BBQ cookouts at the lodge. We take care of all logistics, lodging, food and fishing and all you'll have to do is get yourself there. Fly into San Juan then catch the Cape Air puddle jumper to Mayaguez and we'll take it from there.
