Bait the line, sit back and listen for the clicks of the reel. Next thing you know you’re fighting a 300 marlin that is leaping from the sea. That’s my fantasy of what deep sea fishing is like. The reality is much different. It goes a little something like this–bait the line, wait , wait, wait a little more, reel in my line, find the bait gone. Repeat.

Me and fishing just don’t get along. Don’t get me wrong though, I love to go out fishing with the guys, only I’m the guy sipping on Corona enjoying the boat ride, happy to be doing nothing at all.

In saying that I’m sure a lot of you have much better luck than I, so this information is going to help.

One of my favorite Puerto Rico blogs,, just wrote a great post listing all the top deep sea fishing charters from places all around Puerto Rico. If you have Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo and Tarpon on your mind and you’re in Puerto Rico then this list of charters is for you.
