Captain Paco took me out at 6:00 am to hunt for Tarpon. He knew the waters and is a fine and talented Captain. We got along great very nice man. The best part we landed two 60 lb Tarpons. He guided me the whole way in bringing them in what fun!!!! I highly recommend him. George D.

I took my 14 year old daughter Amanda fishing for Peacock Bass with Captain Paco. We had an absolute blast! We caught a variety of fish, from Peacock to Jaguar Bass. Captain Paco was friendly and attentive. He gave us some pointers on casting and reeling in and also unsnagged our lines several times. He never once looked at his... More

My friend Dusty & I went fishing with Capt. Paco while vacationing with our ladies in PR. The first time we went out for Tarpon we saw many of them rolling on top but couldn't get one to bite. Paco was more bummed about this than we were, but I know this is how it goes sometimes. The next morning... More

Had two great days of fishing with Captain Paco a very professional guide and true expert in his home environment. Battled tarpon the first day and then caught multiple peacock bass the next morning. I look forward to my return next year and would recommend Paco to the beginner fisherman all the way to the seasoned sportsman like myself.

The kids loved the Bass fishing charter. Ages, 6, 8, and 13. They all caught lots of fish and the scenery was breathtakingly beautiful. Capt. Paco was a great guide, very accomodating and knowledgeable. Highlight of our trip.

Even in the rain we enjoyed fishing with Capt Paco. Caught 5 types of fish we haven't before - peacock bass, tilapia, tiger bass, catfish and a ton of little devils. Very different techniques needed for these fish vs bass fishing we're accustomed to. Also enjoyed the surrounding and nature - especially all the birds
