If you want the best tarpon fishing experience in PR, then there is only one guy to call, Capt. Omar. I booked my first tarpon fishing trip with Capt. Omar and it was all-around excellence. From the first phone call to book the trip to the end of the day having a beer on the dock with Omar it was perfect. I wanted to try to catch a tarpon from a kayak. He had everything I needed, including a sweet 14 foot Jackson kayak. He spend the first part of the day working very hard to catch bait while other boats went by us out to the lagoon to fish right away. I know nothing about tarpon fishing or the local water, so I was a bit nervous as to why we were waiting so long to get out there. I didn't have to wait long to get my answer. We got out to the spot, Capt. Omar was explaining everything about the area to me. I launched the kayak from the mothership and started paddling. Several other boats were in the area (same ones that didn't stop for fresh, live bait) and literally within 15 minutes of paddling I hook up with a nice tarpon. Capt. Omar was perfect, calling out instructions only when needed. I've fished a lot of other species (mostly fresh water) from a canoe and a kayak, but this was an unbelievable experience. This fish, which Capt. Omar would later tell me was easily 70 lbs. proceeded to drag me for the next hour and 45 minutes across the lagoon (we figured almost a mile and a half! Finally the fish tired enough to attempt to land him in the kayak. I get the fish up Capt. Omar goes for the camera and I acting like it was the first time in a kayak drop the fish after he starts thrashing around. Not to give excuses, but I was also completely drained from the fight this fish put up. Anyway I have the picture in my head, I landed it on my lap for a few short seconds (unfortunately the only proof I have was the slime on my shorts) but we were not able to get a picture. To this I have to apologize to Capt. Omar. Guys / Gals, if you want to fish with the best Capt. Omar is your man.
