Report #17 2 days fishing 21 and 22 of July 2001 Nicaragua
We received our guests Tom and Eugene Kennedy at 10 am at the local airport in San Carlos as they where coming from Managua Nicaragua. We drop the luggage at Hotel Leykos and fishing did start around 11 am .
Fishing as been for two full days as on the 23 we also fished for 3 additinal hours. I could not be part of the trip this report is done with the information given to me By Augusto my guide and guest Tom Kennedy
In total we report 15 tarpons Hooked 7 or 8 to the boat the bigest around 150lb...also some gars..and a big turtle..!!!??? .Fishing has only been on trolling, Tom sugest us for the future to also fish drifting down Rio San Juan with live bait on a float...For shure we are going to try it again ...We did it sucessfully in the past using Circle hooks and a relatively Big Sardina or small mojara or Machaca hoocked by the mouth... with a float or nothing...This technic is very efficient but only if the tarpon are active ( feeding ) ...If not the lures are better because their vibration do make the tarpon nervous so it will atack this intruser on itís rest teritory..
The only negative point in that trip is than we could not eat any River schrimps as their fishing by local people was a total disaster during these days...Nor a single one in town or in our usual stop in the jungle rivers...
