Trinidad Silver King!

Fish Call Adventures now offers trips to Trinidad to fish for the mighty silver king, TARPON!! Trinidad offers arguably the best tarpon fishing in the world. Double-digit tarpon releases are common, and fishing grounds are mere minutes from the dock. These fish range anywhere from 10 pounds to over 200 and bite better than any tarpon I've ever seen. It is a deep water fishery so the tarpon are not spooky. On our trip there in 2017, my clients averaged 16.5 tarpon per day releasing 101 tarpon in 6 days fishing. Our largest fish was an estimated 200 pounder! There are more cooperative tarpon here than anywhere else in the world. In 2017 our captain landed over 2300 tarpon! Trinidad is located in the southern Caribbean just above Venezuela. Flights to Port of Spain, Trinidad are easy and readily available from major US airports. Another plus is that Trinidad is an English speaking country. We offer all-inclusive fishing packages to this amazing tarpon fishery hosted by Capt. J.R. Waits. We fish with renowned local captain Jonathan De La Rosa. J.R. will be there to document your adventure. Let's fish Trinidad...

Austin's 200 pounder!

Trinidad's tarpon fishery is mostly a live-bait drift fishery, but we caught them on artificial baits and fly as well. In between the two groups, Capt. Jonathan and J.R. fished the fly for 3 hours and went 2 for 2 on tarpon. The first fish was estimated around 100 pounds. The fish won the battle against the 12wt fly rod but we won the war releasing him to swim again. The second tarpon on fly was a much more manageable 20 pounder. We also caught several tarpon on soft plastic lures. It is much harder to get the hook set than the live bait fishing so you jump a bunch fishing plastics. Capt. Jonathan and crew are ready to target them however your heart desires.

We fish with local captain Jonathan De La Rosa who is the innovator of Trinidad's tarpon fishery. Jonathan grew up on these waters and knows the movements of Trinidad tarpon better than anyone. We fish on the 34' Ocean Master "Animal" with Jonathan and mate. For groups larger than 4 anglers, Jonathan has two other boats as well. We stay on a private residential island off of Trinidad. Super neat place nestled in a cove, only accessible by boat, and owned by Capt. Jonathan's family. There is club house bar area (with green roof) that we eat our meals and socialize. Awesome swimming in crystal clear calm water right off the deck. The main house (to right) has 3 bedrooms 3.5 baths with a huge TV area and second kitchen. Then there is a secondary house with 3 more bedrooms and 2 baths. Each bedroom has at least 3 beds so we can fish a big group if needed. Groups of 3 to 10 anglers work good for this property. We have a chef, a maid, and a house manager on hand. Chef Marlou cooks up excellent traditional meals, and the house and boat are both stocked with soft drinks, water, and beer. There is also good WiFi and Direct TV at house.
