Experience the true value of Tortuguero National Park as you work your way along its shallow waters with Tortuguero Sport Fishing. Get your fish on, as you seek out some prized game fish to do battle with. Captain Elvin “Primo” Gutiérrez has been fishing these seas and rivers for over 25 years, and knows everything about them and their impressive wildlife, and can’t wait to show you the area’s incredible beauty.
These skinny waters require a low-bottomed boat. Thankfully for you, the 25’ Mako and 26’ Super Pangas are exactly that. With very little to choose between them, they both comfortably fit 3 guests, and come fitted with a fighting chair each. Settle in as you do battle with some monster fish, before you kick back, and relax on the open deck.
Throughout the year, you’ll have the chance to work your way up and around the saltwater rivers. Calm and protected from the choppy seas, they offer an ideal opportunity for families to get out and fish in comfort. Home to incredible fish, you’ll get to target the world-famous Tarpon as they migrate inland, while also going after some local delicacies like Rainbow Trout, Machaca, and Mojarro.
With the exception of November and December, Tarpon can be caught out on the nearshore waters, too. These beasts will feed on a range of different bait, along with sea turtles that will be hatching. Your captain will use the appropriate bait as you try to lure these monsters, before engaging in an intense battle with one. Bring your own fly fishing equipment and choose from a range of flies, too!
You’ll be picked up from your hotel on the water and taken straight to the fishing spots. Just get in contact with your captain to arrange the meeting point. You’ll get to keep some of the fish you catch, so end the day with a delicious, well-deserved treat. All you need to do is bring some lunch to stay refreshed, and get ready for a fantastic fishing experience in luscious nature with Tortuguero Sport Fishing.
