    That is a huge croc that hung around the dock. Steve Dean got his tail. He has no room to turn around

    Good deal Mr. Iwaters, congrats on a successful fishing trip. I was born in Nicaragua, and I have fished the Rio San Juan for monster tarpon & snook. We also caught some saw fish in Lake Nicaragua, and caught some Rooster Fish as well. BTW, that is not an alligator, it is probably a Yacare Caiman, and they grow very large in Nicaragua. I remember reading of Caimans eating humans, not as aggressive as a croc, but not something you don't want to mess with.

    Looks like fun! Nothing beats bowing to the king! When it comes to fishing, a flats fishing trip to Belize/ Honduras has been on my radar for a while now. Congrats on the fish

    Actually in Nicaragua it was getting to the point where I hoped to not hook up with another tarpon.

    How was your resent trip? Did you do a fish report? Hope you had a wonderful time. My parents are back in the US, and they do not know when will they head back. I hope the country goes back to normal, it is a great place to visit. It's a shame these dictators f*ck it all up for everyone.

    We are back and had a good trip. The tarpon fishing was not as good as the last time but I did manage to land two. I also got a big jack to the boat and he caught off. We had a lot of tarpon that would crab the bait jump and spit it out. Caught a nice barracuda which we ate. The lodge and staff was great and we ate a lot of fresh caught shrimp. The hurricane has slowed up the river fishing but the group before us caught a lot if fat snook. I will go back down next spring for more fishing. Here are a few pictures.
