Hi Oregonism, congrats on your decision to move to the tropics. I've been in PR
for 18 years and have fished off of Vieques many times. But deep sea fishing as the waters here get very deep very quickly. A mile north of PR
is the PR
trench, the floor drops off to over 3000'. A mile south of Vieques the floor drops over 1000'. Unfortunately, the big game fishing hasn't been as good in recent yers as it's been previously.
Now, there is plenty of tarpon fishing in San Juan Bay, Boca de Congrejo, and heck, even in the lakes around the Dorado golf courses have 40 lb tarpons.
Vieques is nice, but it's very remote. I'd consider PR
personally. Either way, it's better in the Caribbean.
