Captain Paco took our group of four on his well-equiped and fast boat on Lake Carraizo, a tropical jungle paradise just thirty minutes from San Juan. The place is teeming with wildlife. It's a nesting and feeding area for Osprey, several species of crane and heron, giant iguanas and the ocassional alligator. We kicked off the afternoon with several hookups on fat and hungry Jaguar Bass, followed by several red devils and channel catfish. The highlight was a male Peacock Bass that lived up to its reputation with a strong fight. Paco is a very knowledgeable guide, his equipment is top rate and well maintained and he will definitely find the fish for you. This was an outing with the kids, we caught and released about 25 good-sized fish in three hours of fishing. Paco is also an experienced fly fisherman. He will gladly help with instruction if you are a beginner. He also ties some fantastically effective flies. I will be back for some fly fishing for Peacock Bass very soon. I highly recommend Captain Paco Mendez, wether your a serious fly fisherman or just want to have a fun time catching fish in a unique setting.
