As usual, fishing is hot in Puerto Rico, but temperatures are dropping as we approach what some would call “winter.” Mornings have been still with the normal breeze out of the Northwest. The lagoons are glass at sunrise, which sets up a near perfect kayak fishery this time of year. How is this affecting our backwater fishing? Easy, not much. The brawlers are in. With reports of 120lbs+ tarpon hanging in the flats and easing into deeper water by midday.

Porto Rico kayak fishing

This past week we had the pleasure of talking to George Large from Yo-Zuri Lures and Morgan Promnitz from Hobie Kayaks. Both were down fishing and having a great time. Although bait is the most productive way to get the big boys to bite, George and Morgan reported many fish with hard plastics with Ghost White and Silver/Gold with Orange underside as being by far the most productive. I believe there was even a story of a 100lbs tarpon hitting the small size popper. He was trying to get a lady fish.

Porto Rico Snook

The big surprise of the season is the consistency of 26”+ size snook. We jumped 10 tarpon and landed several snook in one morning session. The most common are the 35-40” with the 60”ers not uncommon.
