The Perfect Boat for Tarpon Fishing


When you are enjoying tarpon fishing in Puerto Rico in our beautiful backwater lagoons with Backwater Tarpon Fishing Puerto Rico, you can rest assured that our vessels will be the most ideal for tarpon fishing.

With our small bay and flat boats, Captain Felix and crew are able to get you to the best flat fishing spots. To get to one of Puerto Rico’s best tarpon fishing spots, we have to go upstream and under two bridges with only four-foot clearance. This is the reason we go tarpon fishing on small boats with no bimini or T-tops.

Also, while tarpon fishing in Puerto Rico, you might encounter tarpon that will give a fight of 45 minutes or more. During this fight, it is important to have a boat that has free walking space all around it. Backwater Tarpon Fishing PR chose our vessels with this in mind.

For Puerto Rico tarpon fishing, a bay boat is the best fishing platform for inshore tarpon. A bay boat allows the charter fishing guide to move nimbly and quickly. In our bay boat, we can cross shallow flats, duck between bridge pilings, and work close to docks and piers. A bay boat is also relatively easy to position when lining up a cast when tarpon are spotted. Once the fight is on, a bay boat can be quickly maneuvered to give the charter fishing clients the perfect angle.
