The silver king fishing in PR is good enough for longtime guide Capt. Omar Orraca (Fishing in Puerto Rico) to guarantee at least a shot at tarpon every trip, all year (he claims 92 consecutive trips landing at least one tarpon).
What a great feeling! Omar made my son feel like he was the “King of Tarpon”. For about 20 minutes, the fish and my son fought a great battle all the while our Captain was by his side, coaching and pumping him up like he was a prize fighter. Who would have thought my 75lb, 11yr old son would have landed a 50in, 52.6lb Tarpon. And the icing on the cake, I caught one too! And wouldn’t you know it, my son made sure he let me and the Captain know his 50 pounder was bigger than my 30 pounder. LOLFishin_Chef
I’ve been out 5 times with Capt. Omar and he is by far the best guide I’ve been with. He is certainly the most educated guy I’ve been on a boat with when it comes to the lagoon. He knows the tide, the bait, and time to be there to give you the best chance to catch a monster. If you didn’t catch fish with Omar, then there were no fish.!ToddS
