Costa Rica Fishing Reports from Rio Colorado Lodge

Fishing Report Week Ending Jan 27, 2018
The Calba (fat snook) are still in the area, but slowing up a bit. Repeat customer Carey McPhee of Virginia Beach, VA came to fish with us again, and brought his friend Bruce Edmonds of Hampton, VA. We had some high water and rain on and off, but they were successful in catching 5 fat snook which made for a fine fish dinner, especially when we added to nine lobsters the guys scored while fishing. Ceviche as an appetizer, just added to a really fine meal. Bruce and Carey fished hard, rain or shine, and were rewarded by the fish gods the last afternoon whey they hooked 8 tarpon in the river mouth and had a DOUBLE HOOK UP with all of the excitement that creates. Bruce brought his 120 pounder to the boat for release, Carey's tarpon spit the hook so he became the photographer for this epic battle. The guys told us they would see us next year and we are looking forward to the return visit. Look for some of their photos we hope to post on our FACEBOOK page.

The cold front that put the snow in Florida gave us some high winds and some hard rains and it got very cool for here for sure. We had Victor Rodriguez and Anita Henry from Lakeland FL with us fishing hard for three days.. Victor had a trip here on his bucket list since he got one of our vhs tapes at an outdoor show some years back. Fishing was hard with sunny moments interrupted with hard showers. Their experienced guide put Victor in the right place at the right time and he boated a 95 pound tarpon. He also caught a nice Jack Crevelle that was running with the tarpon coming into the river. Anita missed her shot but managed to get a nice Jack to the boat.
