Fishing Report  15th May 2010 & Fishing prediction.

We had our usual  good fishing since beginning of the year, except in some heavy sunny  days in months of March & April  when due to a  dry summer we  had hard time  to connect with Active Tarpon... (If Shallow hot water tarpon get lazy on day time, feed at night...)

Since a few weeks  River is Growing so Tarpon and big snook coming  from the Caribbean sea  are back . Tarpon  are now present in large quantity around Sabalo, Medio Quesso, Palo de Arco... Size between 90lb/150lb plus some monster (200lb+ ) . In last two weeks we report Many Snooks close from San Carlos size 15/20lb

It will be the same conditions till the month of April 2010 ..   After it will be  dry season again...

From January this year we went several time all the way down to the Caribean cost... Till San Juan del norte 120 miles down river..a long ride but so beautiful... These new expeditions are no doubt very interesting as real adventures going through the rapids, the virgin beauty of reserve Indio Mais,  wild life, historical sites, Crocs, Prime birding....

Meanwhile unless specifics weather ( Winds condition than we only can know at last moment ) I confirm than only good time of the year to do that is between Mid August till Mid November because this is the only time of the year when we are 90% Certain to be able to also fish at sea outside the mouth of the River.

For the rest of the year I confirm

        Up river Rio San Juan between San Carlos and Castillo 50 miles Good fishing in all months for Tarpon and Snook ( Only restriction may be April and May if very hot weather...and Low River level )

        Solentiname Good all year round for Rainbow bass, Machaca, Mojara, Wapote....

 

Technique Conventional & Fly fishing 

We fish Conventional, Spining, Bait Castiing, Troling  on line maximum 40 lb Braided or nylon  

 

 We offer Optimum conditions

    * Quiet fresh water allow us to fish light..... as low as  12lb....

    * You will fish from  true  Sportfishing boat  with Central T-Top

    * My boats have a Large Fighting platform in Front so ideal condition for the fight,  fish being in front of boat...Guide behind you, boat driver in the back.

    * For safety reason we always fish with two pro guides aboard, One Driving the boat, the other one taking care of fishing...

 

Fishing for Tarpon is CATCH & RELEASE   We fish  with Barbless hooks, We do not use gaff ...We  grab fish by the lower jaw,

Pictures are taken with fish on side of the boat as according to our experience and a very interesting  study  made by the   Florida  Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) (http://floridamarine.org/features/category_sub.asp?id=2513  lifting the fish and putting it in the boat to take picture would cause severe damages. 

In 2009 We had the chance  to receive a Team of Tarpon Expert coming from USA.. Gerald Ault from MIAMI UNIVERSITY Rosenthiel Center, Tarpon to morrow Fundation, Texas Tournament Organisation...etc... Thanks to them we learned a lot upon Tarpon.... Their life, Proper way to release, Reanimation Technique.. Goal is to enjoy our sport but to give optimum chance of survival to fish...During a week we made with them the first ever done Sat tag program in Central America. . All Tarpon we taged and released with the Sat Tag up river around San Carlos and Saballo ( 120 miles from sea )   went  back at sea  then  go South...??  We lost tracks  in front of  Southern caribean cost of Costa Rica  and North of Panama.....

We are also now monitoring temperature of the water in the river as it is a basic  Factor in Tarpon Life Optimum temperature being around

 

We improve a lot our technics for fly fishing. Yes since many years I have top Fly Equipment for my Guest SAGE, BILLY PATE... But this is not enough Guiding for Fly fishing trip is diferent.. Pollo, Champa and Alexandro are constantly working on their technique  and thanks to several Fly fishing guests who came they did learn a lot. A special thanks to Mr Christian Acard who apart from being a very nice person to be around is also no doubt a fly fishing expert and an excellent Teacher.  

 

Hotel Jungle River Eco Lodge La Esquina del Lago

My lodge is   the only Hotel, Jungle lodge in National Park of Los Guatuzo  category Hospedage Ecologico,( Eco Lodge ).

In last two years I made a lot of improvement more Rooms, New Decks, New Rancho on Lake and River Bank, Full Solar Energy , Full black water treatment, Rain water recuperation...  so MIFIT,  INTUR and MARENA fully approved my entire project.

Obviously in the future my priority will still be Sport Fishing but I now also offer  additional Eco Friendly  activities as Bird watching tours, Canoe and Kayak Adventures al the way down San Juan River, Specialized tours in the entire area upon History, Bird watching...

All these activities  can be  integrate in my all Include Fishing Discovery Package.

 

Kids and environment program

Concerned by environment and Nature preservation in the Rio San Juan area ... I have a program for kids of school of San Carlos. Every Saturday a group of 8 Kids go first at lodge for a short class  then for a tour in National Park of Los Guatuzo with two of my guides.. No fishing only sightseeing of Nature.  Amazing to see how so much concern they are... So many questions...

More than a Hundred kids of San Carlos already participate in this Free activity

 

Tarpon Preservation Program  

For each guest coming fishing with us   I save $25 witch are deposit in a Bank Account... Trip after trip total increase

This money will be dedicated  to a Rio San Juan Tarpon Protection Foundation than I am creating... On this project I have support of MARENA and National Fishery Administration.

We plan to develop Tagging program, Give some resource to Rangers in charge of wild life protection...etc

Obviously any help , support, suggestions on this idea are more than welcome.

 

Our  Exploration trips

Always enjoying Discovery and trying to improve  Fishing I offer to my Guests

        *In the great Lake I  made some explorations trips around Papaturo..Boca Ancha and other Rivers entering the Great Lake Did not found new top places yet except a special spot for Machaca. soon to be explore the northern river banks of Great Lake

        *Trips all the way down River to San Juan del Norte has been very interesting...  Problem being down there Ruff sea or Not..??? . Calm water  In the lagoon around but even if fishing a lot there we did not had many fish... If we can enter at sea it is the absolute contrary...

Very very good fishing for Tarpon, snook...and also tipically sea Fish as Jacks, Spanish Macquerel, Wahoo, Baracuda... all these predator feeding on small baits...( Gardumen ) Also when sea is calm we can fish for good size snook... 20lb/ 35 lb from the beach... I will not forget  this  special morning when fishing three  rods from beach  we caught on soft lures 14 snook  in two hours... size 20lb/35lb... This  day  remember me how fishing  was 20 years ago in Costa Rica when I was fishing Barra samay close from Barra Colorado.. Every morning I was catching casting from shore.two, three , four... of these snook ..   Then due to Comercial netting  and?..or?  .. they disapeared... I hope same thing will not happen on our Nicaragua Spots.

 

New trip Expedition All the way down river

I made up my decision and  I have now AVAILABLE these expeditions all the way down river open for my guests but Only from Mid August till Mid November each year when sea is quiet.

For these new trips basic program is

Day 1 Ariving Managua or San Jose Transfer to lodge

Day 2 Fishing up river San carlos till Palo de arco, Tarpon Snook Night Esqina del Lago

Day 3 Fishing up River San Carlos to Rapid of Saballo Tarpon Snook  Night in Saballo or Castillo

Day 4 Morning fishing Saballo or Castillo  Tarpon Snook Then down River to San Juan del Norte Night San Juan del Norte

Day 5 Fishing at sea From Boat or shore..Tarpon, Snook, Jacks, Wahoo,Spanish Macquerel etc Night San Juan del Norte

Day 6 Fishing at sea  From Boat or shore..Tarpon, Snook, Jacks, Wahoo,Spanish Macquerel etc Night San Juan del Norte

Day 7 Morning fishing at sea Return up river to San Carlos

Day 8 Departure day

NOTES

* This program is flexible we can accomodate diferently but 8 days with us is the strict minimum to do it.

* These trips are a mix Discovery and Top Fishing...They have a strong taste of Adventure meanwhile all around Lodging and meals are good. Safety is not a Problem.

* Going down river after el Castillo, Travel 120 miles of Jungle river Go Through the rapids, Discover the Reserve Indio Mais, The Crocs, The Incredible Bird Watching, the historical sites, the fortress in the Jungle, the Gold rush vestiges, the Transoceanic Channel... etc etc   is a Unique true authentic Experience.

  

 

TV Shows and Magazine articles

A special thanks to friends whose advise me of my presence on  TV Shows almost all over the world, several being broadcast on CNN,  DISCOVERY CHANNEL ....

Our Rio San Juan Destination is  becoming  more and more known... Good for my operation but I consider than the most important is than these shows will no doubts  help for a much better knowledge of Nicaragua .. ( and also the articles published in Field and Stream, Sportfishing Magazine...etc...).

Concerning TV fishing shows   . All videos upon San Carlos Sport Fishing have been shot in short fishing trips.. for example in the one with Cyrill  Chauquet broadcast on DISCOVERY CHANNEL  we only fished a total of 2 days ..and show is very Impressive. No doubt this demonstrate quality of our fishing and  big quantities of fish we catch and release here.... Also exceptional size of Tarpon around.

 

Safety in Nicaragua

International fame of Nicaragua is poor...People are scared to come... 

Yes there are  economics problems here.. Nicaragua is one of the poorest country in the Americas but a friend was telling me than in a recent oficial study done by a Major International Institution  Nicaragua is rated #2 among all the Americas concerning safety, less crime per Capita...Only beaten by Canada.!!!!..

I confirm, All my past guests ( More then 1200 ) can confirm it  Nicaragua  is a safe destination.

Nicaragua will become in the future a premium tourist destination... , it has  as so much to offer... Pacific and Caribean coast,  Granada, The volcanoes, Omotepe, Mombacho...Rio San Juan, the National Parks, The great Lake, Leon...And most important  in my Opinion PEOPLE ARE NICE COUNTRY IS STILL AUTHENTIC....

I like  what Mr Bill heavey of FIELD & STREAMS MAGAZINE wrote as a title in the 5 Pages article published upon my Operation... The civil war is over in Nicaragua.Tarpon unfished for 30 years are hungry and no ones knows...

 

 

International Tournament

On the 13th and 14th of September 2010 will be held the now traditional Rio San Juan International Tournament. This year is THE SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EDITION  as it will be tournament number 50. This is the oldest Tarpon Fishing Tournament in Central America.

We expect many anglers this year, We have a better Organized Comity and already support of more Sponsor.

In order to suport the Tournament As every year  on the 12th  there will be a special Tournament Welcome Free Party at my Lodge for all persons concerned : Anglers and comity... Every body is invited ...Free  Music, Food and drinks for everyone.. The perfect occasion to share.. know each other better and talk fishing... Tournament  is also the annual event for town of San Carlos  all town is concern...Comercial fair, Shows, Concert, Miss election,...a lot of fun around.
