We took a Beaverkill tip-action 7 and mid-action 8 weight to Puerto Rico in search of some of San Juan's majestic tarpon. We were told San Juan's lagoon's was the perfect nurse...ry for their worldclass fishey of baby tarpon. And, they were correct, we were hooking up with mostly 20... to 65 pound tarpon. Not, what most would consider a baby, and many would mention we were under-gunned with only 7 and 8 wt. bkrods. But, they performed impressively well, so much so our hosts have asked to be our first authorized guide and lodge service in Puerto Rico.

We would like to thank our hosts Capt. Omar and Capt. Grif of www.fishinginpuertorico.com, we had a fantastic time. Despite some wind, we managed to hookup with barracuda, tarpon, and snook. Superb time had by all!
