Recommended Gear for Tarponville Lodge, Costa Rica

Tarpon fishing is nothing new in the Caribbean so it’s hard to believe that there are still unexplored regions to be found. In recent years there has been a concerted effort by a handful of individuals to find untouched water. For years, fishermen have heard rumors of large Tarpon in great numbers on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica near the border with Panama. Over the last few years those efforts paid off and the “mother lode” has been found.

After numerous trips, sportfishing specialists have now developed a fishing operation in this previously unknown area. Twenty hook-ups in a morning have been accomplished and Tarpon over 200 have been landed on a fly. Best of all, the fishing waters are located in a wildlife and marine reserve, which insures management and protection of fish and habitat.

Tarponville Lodge is Costa Rica's southern most fishing lodge located on the Caribbean coast. Located just above the border of Panama, Tarponville offers the best chance at some of the most powerful Tarpon you will ever encounter. Fishing shallow waters with intermediate and floating lines, the excitement of these fish will leave you breathless.

The fishing in this region could set a new standard for Tarpon and Snook fishing, with new information about unfished lagoons and uninhabited coastline emerging every day. The staff at Tarponville have spent over 90 days in the past three years exploring these new Tarpon and Snook waters, with more still waiting to be explored.
