The Tarpon fishing takes place in Torecella and San Jose Lagoons – right there in San Juan. This is exciting fishing because most of the action is driven by Tarpon busting bait – called “Blitzing”. This is visual and fun as you cast your fly or lure into the feeding frenzy. Hook-ups are automatic with Baby Tarpon and Adult Tarpon going to 100 lbs. Snook are also present in these bait filled lagoons.
