As we enter the month of August we continue to see great action offshore. August has always been one of my favorite months to be at Tropic Star Lodge. Blue Marlin, Sailfish, big Yellowfin Tunas and Dorado are the prime targets and they are very hungry. There are also a few Blacks around which is an added bonus. Inshore fishing has been good as well and along with the usual Roosterfish and Cubera Snapper, there are loads of Wahoo mixed in. One boat caught 12 Wahoo in one day inshore! We are running full throttle, 13 boats on most days, and the lodge is full of happy anglers. We’re really having a great time.

Randy Sauceda with his catch while at the Tropic Star Lodge"The fishing, the incredible setting, the dining, the service, was all over the top.  I’ve fished quite a few places, but nothing like TSL !!  Between us, our party of 4 caught a nice range of species:  sails, blue marlin, yellow fin tuna, cubera snapper, bull dorado, amberjack and a few others.  The captains and first mates were all seasoned professionals and the fish never stood a chance!  I know the 4 of us will be returning.  What a special place TSL is.  A truly incredible destination!  BTW –I can’t tell you enough how much I miss those wonderful mornings from the lodge’s front patio.  Views of a gorgeous, peaceful bay and my morning coffee.  Too addicting!" .....Randy Sauceda

Many exciting saltwater fishing destinations exist around the world, and each of them beckon to those of us who long ago chose the pursuit of big fish as our avocation. We have lots of places from which to choose where we can spend our time and our wherewithal, and the development of modern air travel and the Internet have flung the gates wide open regarding fishing travel. It’s never been easier to take what only a few decades ago was commonly referred to as “the trip of a lifetime.”
