Rio San Juan Tarpon  Fishing Guides are also Expert Guides for Snook, Rainbow bass, Machaca, Mojara...

 

 

     

We do not fish the conventional 8 hours, we may fish much longer... It may be  from 4.30 am till 6/7 pm , 10hours, 11 hours..." Depend on Guest " , You decide. No problem my guides enjoy fishing this Free way   because first of all they really  love fishing .

 

 

Fishing Guides working with  San Carlos Sport Fishing are :  Pollo,  El Gato, Andres, Chico, Pinky, Juan, Carlos, Walter, Lolo ,Alexandro, Abraham , Pin, Armando, Champa, Minor 

They are all native from the area...All of them  have been Professionally trained

 

Before we met they were  fishing the lake and rivers  as Professional Fishermen fishing with net, Hand line..  They start to be on the water when they where as young as 10 years old... with Father, brother a tradition... Their Knowledge of local fish behaviors is impressive, also of Specific Local condition as weather. Birds are their favorite Indicators... But most of all they  have these inexplicable instincts. special feelings  coming from so many years of to experiences...

 

We met I trained them for sport fishing, ... Difficult on the beginning  as they never have been using our sophisticated equipment ... may take years before they have responsibility to guide a trip.... But when they have the green light be sure they are ready to face any situation...

At night they will Change lines, sharpen hooks...

 

 SAFETY...  BEING PENDING

DSC02777.JPG (348125 bytes)DSCF1661.JPG (750541 bytes)Guides are always pending on  safety they will never give order but yes at all time they will be close from you.. Explaining a lot of tricks and recommendation..... A Must as we are fishing really big Tarpon on Light Tackle in relatively small boats 22 till 28 feet long. Fight is from Platform in  front of boat. It's no so easy to catch and release a 200lb tarpon on 20lb test ,, We all want you succeed

Some really  very young..  11 years old  10.. ( A must to join is to keep  going  to school Sport fishing training is  only on free time ) These younger are first coming to help at Lodge or in our boat,  they learn and perpetuate the tradition , becoming a tarpon  fishing Guide  is also a way for them to have a Future, to make some money  in an area witch is still  very poor...

 

 

Obviously all of my fishing guides have also a good Knowledge of Birds, Wild life... a Must as Discovery is also part of my Trips.

 

alb12T.jpg (25526 bytes)A  S.C.S. Tarpon fishing guide have to perfectly know: Techniques, the river and fish behavior  in the area   but also whatever his experience and knowledge about fish  he has to be willing to listen  and learn from Guests.. Anglers visiting us  knows a lot  about New tackles  in many case  more  than us...We know the area...It is an Exchange.

 

 

Notes

Some guides are at their tarpon #1000 or more.. but when reel sound they still have the same enthusiastic reaction as if it was their first tarpon... I guess you will appreciate that...  and  their smile when they release a Tarpon in good shape...

Most of them are collaborating  with us  since more than  4 years... They are independent  paid on a daily basic , free to join a trip or not...  but so far when I ask them if they want to guide a group.. None of them had ever said no....  

English of Guides  is only strictly  basic for most of them and I am constantly working on that..They Improve but will take time..Meanwhile  I warranty you will  communicate.. will  have fun and  good time  with them

We always fish 1  fishing guide, 1 crew  per boat,( Fishing guide Choose his mate , they  work as a Team know well each other )  this is for safety reason. (We are in Jungle river fighting  really Giant tarpon from 90lb till 250lb+..) This is also for  efficiency and your comfort , one  is driving the boat the other guide is taking care of  you and fishing, our boats are big enough to fish in comfort two guides two guests eventually three guests if you all know each other well before the trip, we never ad an unknown additional angler on your trip....

All  fishing guides in my Expeditions are    Licensed Boat Captain M.T.I ( Ministerio de Transporte)  Allowed to navigate on San Juan River they are responsible  concerning safety...  FUNDAMENTAL  RULE IS  NO RISK ABSOLUTELY NO RISK, for Example  if lake is tuff or "may become tuff" this happen on a trip over 20 we will  not go for Rainbow bass in  Solentiname ( 20 miles away of Open water) we will  fish  for tarpon on always quiet San Juan River. .or Machacas on Rio Frio. Obviously all security equipment is aboard and checked before all trips..Since two years we have celular phone coverage in the area , meaning than during the fishing werever they are they can be in contact with me or La Esquina del Lago base.

I like to have a drink with my guests at night,  guides also but   FISHING GUIDES working with san carlos sport fishing   will not  drink alcohol when at work. ....
