We are putting together a group trip to go to Silver King Lodge in Costa Rica for 4 days of Tarpon and back country fishing. SKL has offered special pricing to the club to help promote the lodge, help the local guides and staff. We have 8 cabins reserved for up to 16 anglers.
Information about the lodge:
Silver King Lodge is the finest giant tarpon fishing lodge in the world. The area has year-round resident tarpon and is one of the best tarpon fisheries in the world. The Lodge is located on the Caribbean coast at the mouth of the Rio Colorado. You will fish from 23-foot boats custom made on site. SKL provides equipment for bait, plug and fly fishermen. Fishing the nearby lagoons for a day or half day is also an option, giving your arms a respite from the 100lb + tarpon, and getting a chance to see more of the Costa Rican wildlife. Your stay will include all meals, beer, wine, and liquor (except call brands). Meals are served buffet style with cooked to order dishes for breakfast. Guestrooms are spacious and air conditioned. The lodge has a pool and Jacuzzi free for use. This is open to all members and friends of members who are willing to join the club for the $30. Membership.
The cost of the trip is $2595 for 4 full days fishing and 5 nights lodging. The normal rate is over $3700 (double occupancy)
My take aways from this past weekend is: Be very patient and try not to hurry shots. I found that if I had a fish that was fairly close and not spooked, toss the fly out leading by 5-8 feet at the distance needed and wait, stripping only once the fish is in range. This saved me many blown shots.
There be many trips for redfish before I ever have another experience as these 2 days (if ever). The redfish fishery on the middle Texas coast is strong ( there has been some great trips this summer for myself and friends). Practice catch and release, you don’t always have to keep the limit but please enjoy some of your catch if you wish.
Both groups, the “Beach Runners” and the “Jetty Campers” all met at the Malachite visitors center looking for the adventure PINS had to offer. The weather was cloudy and a reasonable temperature, we hoped the recent small weather change would have kicked of the bite of the predator fish, after getting the vehicles and equipment … Continue reading PINS Beach Runner Trip Report

She managed to catch 5 on her own with little help from me and about 20 more with some help … Continue reading Social Distancing Fun
