Spaces available, Tarpon adventure to Nicaragua for 2018!
One fish that has been right up the top of my hit list for some time now is a big 'casting lure caught' Tarpon. To make that happen, I am putting together a trip to the Tarpon mecca of Nicaragua, to a very remote lodge only accessible by charter plane.
We have a number of anglers confirmed for the trip already, but we still have some space available if anyone is keen to get on board.
To get to this fishery, we need to arrive at San Jose in Costa Rica. After this we take a charter plane which will be arranged to take us direct to the lodge in Nicaragua. The Nicaraguan visa will be arranged for us at the lodge.
We will then have 7 full days of fishing and for this there are two main options 1) focus nearer to the sea and river mouth casting the heavier lures for giant Tarpon (up to 220lb+) as well as Snook, Sails, Snapper, Jacks and much more and 2) going further up river on the lighter lures chasing other species including trophy size Rainbow bass and Snook.
We are fishing only 2 people per spacious 25ft boat, and groups are free to choose on a given day whether they want to fish the sea/rivermouth or up river.
Accommodation is a very luxurious lodge with top class food, free open bar, pool etc. You will not be without comfort!
We have booked very early and so have managed to secure the week with the best moon phase on the best month of the year for big fish, so I'm sure it is going to be an awesome trip.
Exact details as follows:
5 October 2018, arrive in San Jose, accommodation twin share
6 October (morning) take an early charter flight (included in the trip price) to the airstrip near the lodge, then a 1km boat transfer to the lodge – then begin fishing immediately
7 full days of fishing, ending in the evening on Friday 12 October
Overnight accommodation at the lodge on Friday 12th, then take another charter flight (included) back to San Jose on the 13th in time to meet your connecting flight.
Trip includes charter flight, accommodation, 7 full days fishing, meals/drinks and all equipment (if you choose not to bring your own).

When asked by a non-fisherman 'how many fishing rods do you really need?' the correct answer is either:
n+1 (where n is the number of fishing rods you currently own); or
n-1 (where n is the number of fishing rods which would cause your significant other to dump you.
