Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper
The fishing over the last two weeks has been mostly inshore. The bite is on and guests are having great action with Roosterfish, Giant Cubera Snappers and a host of other inshore species like Spotted Trevally, Almaco Jack and Robalo. Those who have ventured offshore have been rewarded with some good but sporadic Yellowfin Tuna action and some lucky anglers have had some good luck with a few Marlin and Sailfish. The Marlin bite has been rather slow but this is normal for this time of the year. We should expect the billfish bite to get better during the month of May and should be on fire from mid June through September. Speaking of Inshore Fishing, there’s something to be said for the incredible inshore fishery at Tropic Star Lodge. The rugged coastline offers so much rocky structure that the fish stack up in big numbers. It’s all about live baiting here and some folks also enjoy watching 50+ lbs Cubera Snappers exploding on poppers. Basically, you never know what monster will grab your baits here. I have accumulated a host of fantastic photos of some of the trophy fish caught over the last two weeks of fishing. And as they say; pictures speak louder than words so I hope you enjoy them. I am sure that after you take a look at the pictures you’d consider paying us a visit next March or April.
