Trinidad Tarpon Bash

Got tarpon? Trinidad does, and lots of them!

Not so long ago this island was a hidden gem, known only to the most adventurous tarpon hunters. This August, you can experience this incredible fishery firsthand and discover an island setting that's second to none.

A celebration for seasoned tarpon anglers as well as fun seekers looking for a true fishing adventure, this tournament is centered around the large schools of these fish that line up every morning and evening in the bocas along Trinidad's northwest coast. These passes offer some of the most consistent action in the world -- just 15 minutes from your hotel room! You'll also meet great people and enjoy fun parties, so why not make Trinidad one of your travel stops in 2005?
We promise you won't be disappointed.
