2019 Fishing Season Highlights

Marlin jumping right behind the boat showing it's might for anglers

The Offshore bite has been phenomenal with five Grand Slams so far this season. Most consisted of Boat Slams and one personal Grand Slam. An offshore slam at Tropic Star Lodge normally involves a Black Marlin, Blue Marlin and Pacific Sailfish released in a single day. We have started to see more and more Black Marlin showing up and even a few larger females of over 600 lb. The Blue Marlin bite has been on fire with boats often experiencing three to five shots a day.

The fishing has been great offshore with more Dorado than we could possibly reel in. It has made it abundantly clear to anglers just why learning bait and switch is so important as giant Mahi tear through the spread demolishing baits. There has been an abundance of bait around but they aren’t always easy to target. The billfish bite has been good with the first Boat Slam coming hot on the heels of the opening of the season.

2018 Annual Tropic Star Lodge Billfish Tournament

We begin the season with the Annual Tropic Star Lodge Billfish Tournament benefitting the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. The two-day tournament is a qualifier for the Offshore World Championship, the premier offshore tournament in the sport of game fishing.
