We welcomed a group of 8 from Japan, boked through Big Trout LTD. They usually come for an annual October trip. This group fishing 5 days and using barbless hooks jumped 76 tarpon and brought 26 to the boat for release. The biggest was 250 lbs and 5 others were 220 and over! One of the group, Mr. Miyazaki said this trip and catching a 160+ LB tarpon was a lifetime dream fulfilled. We love helping our guest fulfill dreams, and mark of yet another wish on the bucket list. Come visit.

We had a couple of lawyers from South Africa, Paul Truter and Amy Jones fished with us for 4 days. They jumped 21 tarpon and brought 15 to the boat for release. In addition, they caught numerous jack, mackeral and smaller fish. The weather was great with nice seas sporting large schools of fishing feeding just outside the river mouth. Their comment on the check out comment form was, "Fishing trip of a lifetime". We get that often, if you haven't had this experience, you need to visit soon. Looking forward to hearing from you, just call 1 800 243-9777.

Longtime friend, and repeat guest Pat Hillard of the UK visited us again. He was with us for 6 days, and fished 4 of those days for tarpon. He jumped 15, not sure how many he got to the boat for release. He fished part of the time for snook, and unfortunately caught only 2 which as he says " was slower than usual, but the visit is not just about the fishing, it is about the experience, and the camaraderie gained during these visits". Pat met 2 other anglers the same dates as he was at the Lodge. These 2 anglers came to us through the International Game Fishing Association, Scott Conlee aka Dr. Dredd and Glen Maranga, what a great time was had by all with Dr. Dredd being a real instigator of all sorts of things! The 3 became fast friends. Just another reason to visit Rio Colorado Lodge, you just never know what you'll encounter, the friends, or not, you'll meet, but the experience will be unforgettable. Fishing was a bit slow during the time they all were at the Lodge, but they made up for it with shenaigans! Scott and Glen caught two Jack Crevelle, jumped 4 tarpon and brought one to the boat for release.

Greg Sprague fished 2 and 1/2 days. Greg jumped 11 tarpon and brought 3 to the boat for release. Again nice size tarpon. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the fishing buddy of Greg's, and his family, that was scheduled to come with him.
