Welcome to Puerto Rico Fishing
The deep waters off San Juan Puerto Rico offer some of the greatest fishing in the world. Join Captain Jose Campos for Half Day, 3/4 Day and Full Day Puerto Rico fishing charter from San Juan.
San Juan Bay fishing for tarpon, snook, jacks, mackerels and others with live bait and spinning tackle has improved tremendously with a clean harbor which in turn cause huge schools of baitfish to aggregate close to our dockage area and without the worries of fluctuating tides and run-offs.

#1 in Billfish Tag and Release in Puerto Rico. Captain Campos has personally caught 318 blue marlins in his life time and now after his new hip is shooting for 320 at the age of 85 coming up in Oct, 2017. The majority of the big fish were caught on light tackle. His biggest, a 220 Blue Marlin was caught on 20# line. This was an actual record in PR. Captain Campos has also caught a 150lb Yellowfin Tuna on 30# line.
He has in his "bragging room" 235 awards, diplomas, certificates,trophies and other memorabilia, without counting fishing tackle, trips, teak cocktail tables and others to attest to his superb fishing skills and perseverance throughout the years.
Record Lifetime Trophies Accumulated by Captain José L. Cámpos Abella
This is the result of 60 years of salt water fishing offshore. Patience, perseverance, persistation, frustration and knowledge of the species sought are very important to achieve this record. We have counted over 232 trophies, plaques, awards, fishing tackle, teak tables, diplomas etc. etc.
Time has taken a toll on them as it has on myself. I will be 80 years old next October and aiming for my 315 (1 to go ) Blue Marlin where quite a few dozen have been released some tagged since 1986. All caught under IGFA rules.
