Jon Schwartz

Writer, Professional Photographer

I come to Tropic Star Lodge® because the place is like a Royal Angling Jurassic Park. The world's best captains and mates are the guides, putting clients in regular and intimate contact with some of the world's most exciting fish. Going there as a photographer is like getting a ringside ticket to fishing's main event, and when the boats start racing away from the dock as the sun rises over Pinas Bay, the feeling that a big black might be rocketing skywards just off the transom within 30 minutes- that very real potential- as an angler, or sports journalist photographer, that's where I want to be more than anywhere on earth. I've enjoyed documenting the Tropic Star experience, and having my photos chosen for use in Guy Harvey's book on Tropic Star Lodge® is an honor.

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!
