We still recommend to stay at the Lodge and still get pick up at the lodge to fish with ME. Important to REQUEST my services if you are looking to fish specifically with ME. • The name of my company is CARIBBEAN OUTFITTERS and start it on April 25 1994, no interruption. My domain name who has been copied in similar ones, starts in 1997 and was the first domain name for a fishing charter webpage in PR, the name is FISHINGINPUERTORICO.COM My name is Capt. OMAR ORRACA, I am 45 years old and start fishing professionals in 1990. Took my capt license in 1992. By 28 years old (July 1998) I work hard enough to buy my deep sea boat and pay it off in 5 years. The name of my back country boat is TARPON SNIPER, a custom build Pathfinder 24' with a Yamaha 200 hp 4 stroke and 100 gallons of live well, not 22' and they are not rigged the same. The name of my deep sea fishing boat is FIRST LADY, a Bertram 35' with electric teaser reels, seat for 4 people and full electronics by SIMRAD.
The reason for the explanation was, while I was going threw one of the worst time of my life for the last 2-3 years, if not the worst since I left home at 18 years old; the custody battle for my daughter Isa. There were some people saying that I quit fishing, or that I was not around the charters any more. Some others try to confuse potential customer on different ways, saying thing like we fish the same area, we all do the same or fish the same.....well NO! No capt fish the same as the other and it don't mean is wrong, I got my stile it is different on tools I like to use, attitude, etc Thanks Lord I found a very good Staff who tooke great care of my customers while I was stand by for different reason Isa's situation involve at the time. Eventually I start to loose a lot in proportion with what I have, things I lost like my second boat, Mantis, money on lawyers, a car, etc. Got the point I could not keep spending more money on lawyers and the most important, stay away from my customers so I let Isa go to South Carolina..... haven't see her for one year a day like today. What this mean I am back on the water fishing for tarpon from most of the time and in late summer early fall (Sept) I fish for bone fishing in Culebra for 3 weeks and fall off shore for marlin, point is I AM BACK, GUDING! This are my Boats and my ugly face!
