: Return from Puerto Rico/report

I've returned successful from PR. My trip wasn't as successful as the report that i read that someone else has posted but Capt. Rosario is Class. I fished one day with Capt. Pochy Rosario and I landed my first Tarpon . We saw tons of tarpon and one monster barracuda! I had four eats and landed two, one of around 80lbs and a baby tarpon. One of the fish I have to admit I trout set on after he ate it stupid, stupid, stupid. After all I have been a trout guide for 15 years.
I have to agree with one of the replies to my first thread to not fish San Juan. I know some people have had success there but after fishing in Cabo Rojo in crystal clear water as apposed to the murky lagoons of San Juan i'll take Boqueron any day. I didn't get a chance to get to culebra or vieques though i was able to catch some barracuda in some spots on the north shore in vega baja.
Well for now I'll be here in Utah the BWO's are popping like crazy here so the fishing is going off. My next salt adventure will be on Cape Cod for two weeks in June. I can hardly sleep, stripers and now Tarpon have taken over my brain.
On a seperate side note I have had a lot of experience fishing and guiding in Patagonia if any one ever needs info, I was there traveling for three weeks this past winter.
Cheers everyone thanks for the info all

I am a huge fan of the PR tarpon BUT per your membership agreement only Forum sponsors are allowed to promote business on this site and that's twice...
