FAQ’S | Central America Charter Fishing

Central America Charter Fishing is good all year round. You will find different species to be more prevalent in certain months. Please refer to our Year-Round Fishing page for more info.
On a normal fishing day here at El Rio Negro, the day starts at 5:00 AM. Breakfast, beverages and coffee are served in the Cantina at 5:15 A.M. Our boats head out between 6:00 – 6:15 A.M. First stop is to catch bait. We try to mix the day up between trolling, jigging, popping and live bait. If you prefer to fish for certain species with a certain technique let us know and your Captain will gladly fish accordingly. Lines come in at 3:00 PM. Of course if someone is hooked up the fight continues. Being back to the Lodge way before dark is our only priority. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our fishing director if you prefer a certain type of fishing technique or species. Our captains and crew speak limited English.
