Host – Escape to the Wild – VERSUS

This trip to Tropic Star Lodge® will go down as one for the ages! Our show winner, Gary Babineau landed TWO blues, FIVE sails, a 70 lb rooster AND oh by the way a 50 lb dodo!  All in three days!  How awesome is that?  I told him, he doesn’t know what he’s accomplished.  The fishing was fantastic, as was the food, fellowship and service.  Everyone at Tropic Star Lodge® treated Gary like the hero he is and made his trip one he will never forget.  On behalf of Gary and our film crew, thanks for all you did to make a deserving young man’s fishing dreams come true. You folks are simply THE best!

IGFA Royal Slam

I wanted to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone at Tropic Star Lodge. Completing my IGFA Royal Slam has been a lifelong goal and catching my black marlin @ TSL puts to topping on the cake. Since my first trip to TSL, it's held a piece of my heart and forever will. I can hardly wait to get back to Panama and catch a bunch more. In the meantime, it's off to Kona to catch my shortbill spearfish and have All 10!

Thank you again for making our visit so memorable, TSL is greatest!
