Animal - Monsta Tarpon Sportfishing

Crews Inn Marina
Port Of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago

If you’re looking to do battle with the notorious Silver King, what could be better than exploring the bountiful waters of beautiful Trinidad and Tobago on a super-established charter? Monsta Tarpon Sportfishing charters can’t wait to take you on a world-class, fast-paced Tarpon-hunt, combined with some incredible scenery!

Captain Johnathan De La Rosa has fished these waters for the past 25 years, and has built up a serious wealth of knowledge and experience. This has helped him become the island’s top Tarpon guide – how’s that for an impressive title? Come battle the Silver King alongside serious sportfishing royalty!

You’ll be setting sail onboard ‘Animal’, a top-of-the-line 36’ Ocean Master offshore sportfishing vessel. She can accommodate up to 4 anglers, so this leaves you with plenty of room to battle hard! There are also outriggers on board to maximize your trolling experience. She’s fully decked out with top-notch navigational equipment, life jackets, and a full, private toilet—so you’ll be traveling to the hotspots in maximum comfort and safety.

As for the species you’ll be targeting? How does Tarpon, Tarpon, and more Tarpon sound?! These hard-fighters grow up to a seriously impressive size here – Capt. Jonathan has reeled in 250 lb beasts before, so get ready to fight hard. You’ll also be reeling in whatever else happens to be biting, so expect to come face-to-gills with King Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, and more. 

Between October and March, you’ll also have the chance to go on an offshore adventure with Capt. Jonathan. This means going nose-to-nose with Mahi Mahi, a variety of Billfish, and other impressive big game species. Just discuss this with him in advance!

You’ll be equipped with top-quality rods and reels to help you land your dream catch, as well as live bait. Fishermen of all ages and skill levels are welcome to come aboard. Join Monsta Tarpon Sportfishing charters for an incredible angling adventure – just bring your best game face!

Fishing trip was a fun adventure. Guide was very professional and he has done his part well

Downside:  not enough info on what to do once we got to Crews Inn! Where do we go? Have to pay to park. Where do you pay to park? Who are we looking for because they are not looking for us?

Fishing part was great, but the meet up not so much. But I would come again.
