The fishing

From his 21’ fibreglass boat, Primo focuses predominantly on tarpon (fly-fishing, lure fishing or bait fishing), although there are plenty of other species in the area too. Aside from tarpon, species you are likely to encounter are snook, snapper, jack, barracuda, kingfish, grouper and mackerel. In the river you’ll find guapote, moharra, machaca, snook, and sometimes tarpon.
Primo can provide all the equipment you need although you are welcome to bring your own.

    I fished with Primo a couple of years ago and had one of the best day’s fishing of my life. Set out about 6am, had boated one tarpon by 6.45am and a further five by lunchtime (all were between 50 and 90lbs). Not on the fly I hasten to add.
    We headed in for a rest at lunchtime for a couple of hours before spending the afternoon back on the water. Boated one more fish, with a couple of bonus jacks (very big they were too) before the sun started to set.
    All in all, it was sensational – one of those real one- off days. For once, the old “you should have been here yesterday or tomorrow” thing didn’t count. I guess everything went right.
    Primo himself was a great guide – good fun, really excited about fishing (fishes on his days off – that kind of guide), great gear, great boat. Can’t ask for more than that, really. Top marks…

    October, 2011 Primo put us on the fish!! I have never been so ‘worn out’ while having so much fun in my life! These tarpon were HUGE! Primo is an all-around good guy, great fishing guide with fun-loving personality. I can’t wait to go back!
