Nicaragua: Unique…Original

Nicaragua: Unique…Original.

 

Sport fishing is truly one of Nicaragua’s greatest draws. With two oceans, gigantic lakes, multiple rivers and inviting lagoons, Nicaragua has something different to offer every fishing enthusiast. The International Sports Fishing Tournament takes place each September on the San Juan River and on Ometepe Island, recognized as the world’s 10th largest island to be located in a freshwater lake. In addition, the first International Fishing Tournament took place May 2005 in the lush Solentíname archipelago near the Rió San Juan Region. Still undiscovered, over-fishing has not plagued Nicaragua as it has other nations, and so most bodies of water in and around the country still teem with sea life. Anglers can battle Blue, Black, or Striped Marlin on a Pacific excursion or look on in amazement while reeling in a 100-pound giant tarpon on the San Juan River. Lake Nicaragua (the second largest lake in Latin America) is considered one of the most interesting freshwater fishing spots in the world with bull sharks, “róbalos”, 30-pound snook and mammoth tarpon. Popular fishing outfitters includehttp://www.nicaraguafishing.com/ for Rio San Juan, Surfari Charters (www.surfaricharters.com) and Pelican Eyes Sailing Adventures (www.piedrasyolas.com/pelicaneyes) for Pacific coast fishing.

2012 Barbados International Game Fishing Tournament: March 29 – April 2 | Barbados Game Fishing Association.

 

The Barbados International Fishing Tournament is one of the premier fishing events in the Southern Caribbean, and attracts participants from across the region and internationally each year for five days of fun and competition.

The 2012 Barbados International Fishing tournament is expected to continue to be a big success, and previous years have seen an average of 35 boats and 200 anglers participating, with some spectacular catches being recorded as the teams revel in the magnificent conditions. Prior years averaged 40 Billfish caught and released, of which the majority (30-35) are Blue Marlin, and then a few Sailfish, White Marlin and Spearfish to keep things interesting, along with scores of Wahoo and Dolphin landed that help the drive to assist the needy children of the island.

Sportsfishing has made remarkable strides in the USA and around the world in rebuilding and enhancing fisheries and the marine environment worldwide, while at the same time providing for enjoyment of terrestrial species such as the fishermen themselves. This union has resulted in a huge following with the latest survey in the USA confirming that there are twice as many Sportsfishermen (40 million) as Golfers, and even more than Golfers (24.4 million) and Tennis players (10.4 million) combined! With a combined economic output in the USA alone of $125 Billion, the economics of Sportsfishing make it a remarkable case study on the marriage of man and the environment. When you combine all of this with some great dockside fun and frolic on a Caribbean Island, well then as they say “the rest is history”!
