September 25, 2009 – Tarpon Fishing Costa Rica




One of my friends just got back from a couple days of tarpon fishing out of Los Chilis, Costa Rica.

They actually fished the San Juan River in Nicaragua.  They averaged 3 tarpon hook ups and one tarpon release per day.  The fish were all 100 to 150 pounds.

The area is very beautiful and very remote.  I fished there a few years ago and hooked up with a 200 plus pound tarpon for 15 minutes before she spit the lure.
