Trip Report from Tarpon Cay Lodge (July 17 - 24, 2010)

We just received a fantastic fishing report from repeat Yucatan customer, Jon H. of San Jose, CA. For the past few years, Jon has made bi-annual trips to Tarpon Cay Lodge and/or Isla del Sabalo to pursue Tarpon. He is an avid Tarpon-holic, as he also makes multiple annual trips to the FL Keys to pursue Tarpon and other flats species.

Well, Jon just returned from a great week of fishing at Tarpon Cay Lodge. Despite the unseasonal windy conditions at San Felipe, he still managed an impressive 51 baby Tarpon landed in a week of fishing. Even more, he said that he jumped and lost equally as many throughout the week. Wow, impressive!

Unfortunately, the windy conditions did not provide an opportunity to successfully pursue the migratory Tarpon last week. This seems to have been a common theme across the Gulf and Caribbean this past spring / summer. Once this wind lays down, the fishing should be excellent. August is normally the lowest wind month, so we have our fingers crossed for some stellar reports on the big Tarpon next month.

Well, thanks again Jon for checking in with us and giving us a nice report about your fishing success at Tarpon Cay Lodge. Good fishing to all and Fish On!
