“Awesome experience – Will come back again!”
June 4, 2016

My wife and I booked Marcos for a sunset (2-hr) light tackle fishing trip and it was a trip that we will never forget. We are both avid fishermen although we had never fished for tarpon, but after a quick briefing of how to battle them we were off to the races. In two hours we each caught two tarpon over 40lbs, and Marcos was there the whole time helping us do whatever we could to get them to the boat. He was extremely professional, friendly, and makes you feel comfortable on his boat. After our arms were almost limp from fighting fish we were heading back to the dock with huge smiles, then my wife turned to me and asked me to find out if he was available later that week. We booked him again two days later and sure enough he put us right on the fish. This trip we each caught 3 tarpon around 45lbs, but my wife stole the show with a 90lb monster all in 2-hrs. We had an amazing time fishing with Marcos both nights and will definitely make a return trip to Fajardo just to fish with him again. I have fished with a multitude of fishing guides and would rank Marcos right at the top. He was extremely enjoyable to fish and just share stories with the entire time and we left feeling like we had made a friend. I would HIGHLY recommend fishing with him to anyone that is serious about enjoying some light tackle fishing.

“Highlight of my stay!”

On business for four weeks in PR and was able to visit most parts of the island. Fishing with Capt Marcos was the highlight of the trip. Nice boat and great company on the water. Will return to fish with him as soon as I can. Thanks for a great time! DMR

“Great experience.”

Captain Marcos and first mate Juan are both great people. They are pleasures to deal with and do everything possible to make sure you have a great time. When I went out with him the first afternoon trip we ended up catching 11 Mahi Mahi, more than 3x what the other fisherman out of the marina caught that day! I was even able to get one of them on a fly rod. I went out with them again a few days later for an evening Tarpon trip. I caught my first Tarpon that went about 35lbs and then we tried the fly. He put me on the fish and I hooked up on one who shook it on the jumped and missed two more. We then switched to live bait and caught one more before the storm rolled in. Overall I am very pleased with the experience and would recommend Captain Marcos’ services!

“Fishing Fajardo Puerto Rico”

Very stable boat (26 foot cat). Excellent captain. We fished a bit off season with a storm coming in that made the water very cloudy which was not helpful. That being said Captain Marcos put us on multiple species of fish every day inshore and offshore. In 3 days we caught tarpon, Mahi, tuna, snapper, grouper, needlefish, triggerfish, and Abaco jack. Some were too eat – some were just for fun. Each trip was customized according to what we wanted to target and the weather conditions, which were not friendly. All his tackle is Shimano and is on the lighter side, which I prefer.
