Catching Large Tarpon CR
Silver King Lodge is located in "Barra del Colorado", which is approximately 140 miles from San Jose in the extreme Northeastern Caribbean Coast and is the second largest rainforest preserve in Central America.
Costa Rica is home to the some of the largest Tarpon in the world. Tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) are the "Silver Kings" of our coastal waters and can grow beyond 6 feet in length and weigh as much as 350 lbs. The world record for Tarpon caught using a hook and line is 281 lbs.
There is nothing more impressive than feeling the line come tight and watching a 100+ lb. Tarpon come rocketing into the air or its tail walking across the water with your fly in its mouth!
This is why we call these fish the "Silver King". Nowhere else in the world are your chances at landing a Tarpon over 100 lb. or hooking a tarpon of 200 pounds more likely than at Tarponville. The Tarpon fishery at Tarponville caters to all levels of fly fisherman from beginners to experts, form blind casting to sight casting.
