Fishing is great here year round. The dry season is from December to May, and in May it will start to rain, but mostly in the afternoons. We normally just get a good rain storm and it gets sunny again. September, October and the beginning of November can be a bit more rainy than the other months. In 12 years at the lodge, there has been not been one day loss of fishing due to the weather. Sometimes the offshore fishing can be rough but we can always find good fishing around the islands.
Although many clients bring a few of their own rods and reels and that is fine, they are not needed! There are all the top rods, reels and rigging needed to get the job done. We do understand that many people want to bring their own rods and lures to even do a little bit of experimenting and testing with their equipment. So if you want to put that drag on that new spinning reel to the test – bring it with you and hold on because we aim to put you on the “proving grounds”.
The lodge employs some of the best and most experienced professional captains around who have generations of local fishing experience that will be put to work for you! All of the captains and mates understand that they are fishing and working for you.
We do many types of fishing here, popping, jigging, fishing with live bait, chunk bait, slow troll live bait, troll plastics for Grouper, giant Cubera Snapper, Roosters or Amberjacks …….. The list goes on and on. We have many options with many different species of fish to try for. There are plenty of islands in the area and lots of rock structures to fish and offshore we have the famous Hannibal Bank and Montosa Island to fish for big Marlin , Tuna and Sailfish.
Below is a season chart to serve as a general guideline–timeline for in season species. Every year is different and the weather on any given month/year will always be a factor, but this will help if you are looking for windows of oppotunity for particular species.
