Is Guinea-Bissau the world's ultimate giant-tarpon destination? Without a doubt, the answer is yes. However, there are many more species to fish for besides tarpon in the Archipelago de Bijagos. The incredible number of voracious, plug-slamming jack crevalle, many of which exceed 40 pounds, seem to be the region's strongest draw, followed by barracuda, one of which exceeded 70 pounds this season. Then there's the 20 species of shark (five of which commonly exceed 400 pounds), amberjack, Senegalese jack, cobia, drum, bonefish, permit, pompano, grouper, guitarfish, ladyfish, leer fish, sierra, sea bass and tripletail.
