NEWS FLASH - Tarpon are getting bigger!


io Parismina is happy to announce that we have just completed our fall season, and what a season it was! There was lots of Tarpon action and lots of mammoth Tarpon. It seems that the Tarpon are getting bigger, and bigger. In years past, it was unusual to catch a Tarpon over 120 to 130 pounds. Now lots of Tarpon are being landed that weigh over 130 pounds and up to 200 pounds. That's a BIG TARPON!!

The spring season is the best time for numbers of fish. It is during this time that the Tarpon hunt in giant schools in the clear water off shore. One of our clients, who has been fishing the Parismina area for over 30 years has kept records for the past 10 years while he was fishing at Rio Parismina in February. Here are the straight facts:

During my ten years visiting in Feburary, I've jumped 619 Tarpon, boated 431. My best day of fishing during Feburary, I jumped 23, boated 21. There was never a bad day of fishing! Compared to my first trip in 2006, I only jumped 91, boated 48 during the entire trip. In 2009, jumped 89, boated 65 that week.

For all the years I have been coming down, Feburary and May-jumped a total of 1,017, boated 697.

I think one reason why Feburary has been so good for me is the lack of other guests fishing. That 2006 total was with only 2 other people at the Lodge.

The angler was Dennis Toll from Sanibel Island. He fishes solo. You can see that the Spring Season is Dynamite and this is not a fish story!
