pring is here in beautiful Parismina, Costa Rica. We started out our season with some great weather and some super Tarpon fishing. The rivers are clear and the exotic riverfish have not disappointed us. Bill Child and Dan Nottke fished the rivers with their guide Kenney for 4 full days and really hammered the machacas, mojarras and even got in on the guapote action. All of the Machacas and Mojarras where caught on the fly. For those of you who do not know, the Guapote, or rainbow bass, is the most difficult species that we have to catch.
We had a short stretch of weather that put us in the river for a few days, but the river didn't disappoint us. Lots of Tarpon in the California river, lots of other species in the backwaters. The acrobatic Machacas had many anglers frustrated and many anglers delighted. You almost have to set the hook before this feisty fish hits. Lots of fun was had by all.
Fly fishing was a big highlight this early spring too. Paul Naylor subdued a nice 80 pound Tarpon in the river with his 10 weight fly rod and lost several more One of these bad boy Tarpon was estimated to be over 100 pounds. Nice going Paul!
Right now the seas are calm, calm. The sardines are ever present, and the Tarpon are right near the river mouths. The Parismina, Pacuare and the Matina rivers are all producing great numbers of Tarpon and other species as well. The Cobias are present too and of course those strong, Jack Crevalles.
The Snook have turned on also and are supplying a great challenge in the surf to our anglers. The biggest Snook so far was around 24 pounds.
