A true Billfish Mecca, the bountiful offshore waters of Venezuela continue

Venezuela Offshore Fishing
In Venezuela blue marlin can be caught year around, but it's the winter and spring (Jan - May) that bring their larger concentrations to La Guaira waters. It is then that our boats average 4 to 8 shots per day, and have caught as many as 12 during a single full day charter. In the spring of 1999, 40 boats fishing the La Guaira Shootout set a new world record for most blue marlin caught during a tournament, amassing an incredible 256 blue marlin releases, more than 300 total billfish catches, and 11 grand slams achieved by participants in 3 days.

Los Roques is an archipelago located in the Caribbean, north of La Guaira. For its beauty and ecological importance it was
declared national park in 1972. There are more than 50 islands here. El Gran Roque is the only one populated and is where the

larger than anywhere else in the Hemisphere. Los

While some fishermen search the world's waters for giant Tarpon, those
that weigh well over 100 pounds-perhaps even more anglers look for areas
where schools of small Tarpon are found. It is not as tiring to land a small Tarpon as it is to land a giant.
Secondly, the sporting challenge is preserved by using light tackle.

Venezuela Tarpon Fishing
Known locally as Tacarigua Lagoon in Río Chico is not just an excellent Tarpon fishery, but a spectacularly beautiful setting for days of great fishing. This is the place for the angler who wants lots of action and, as a bonus, gets to see immense flocks of Scarlet and White Ibis, occasional Osprey and many other birds as the entrance to the Lagoons is a prime nesting area.
