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 full day or half 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.



Captain Jose Campos has fished the Atlantic From Brazil to Canso Nova Scotia. Jose has fifty years of experience, Club Nautico Hall of Fame Member and he has also been a Winner of:


  • The Bluefin Tuna International Match in Bimini

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 (2 to go ) Blue Marlin where quite a
few dozen have been released some tagged since 1986. All caught under IGFA rules.
