Top 12 Hosted Fishing Destinations
Every year our hosted trips become increasingly popular and sell out very quickly. This is due to them being cheaper than travelling as a single angler, the expert advice, the experience of our hosts, and the exclusive destinations we have. Below we have listed our top 12 hosted trips, in no particular order.
Crocodile Bay fishing resort – Costa Rica
Every year our customers achieve unbelievable results on this hosted big game fishing trip. Many personal best Marlin and near-record sized Roosters have been caught by anglers who have joined us on this fishing holiday.
The fishing on offer at Crocodile Bay is very varied and appeals to many different fishing types from fly fishermen to lure anglers. The offshore fishing offers many different options too, including trolling big Marlin lures and rigged baits for the Billfish. Whilst fishing offshore you will come across huge shoals of Tuna and Dorado which can be caught either with lures or by fly fishing and the standard trolling.
Mefjord – Norway
The fishing around in Mefjord benefits from a huge run of Skrei Cod during the early season. The Skrei Cod then give way to huge shoals of Coalfish that push in the fjords searching out bait shoals to feed on.
As the season progresses the Halibut then start to wake up and this is a perfectly located camp to take advantage of the grounds that Halibut look for. Other smaller species can be found in this area and well worth targeting including fish such as the Scorpionfish, Plaice, Dabs, and the lesser-caught Tadpole fish. Sea fishing in Mefjord really does offer lots of potentials to tick many species off your lists.
Christmas Island fly fishing has something for all anglers. There’s fly fishing to suit both complete beginners right through to more experienced anglers. Christmas Island fly fishing gives you the opportunity to catch a vast array of species. These species include amazing numbers of Bonefish.
Even novice anglers can easily learn the craft of fly-fishing and catch 10 plus fish a day. For the experienced fly angler, the opportunity to cast your fly at large Bonefish also awaits. For anglers keen on the challenge of Trevally, (Giant, Golden, Blue Fin, and Striped) the guides at Christmas Island are highly skilled in their pursuit.
Palmas De Cortez – Mexico
Our Palmas De Cortez Mexico destination is one of the hottest big game fishing destinations around the world. For over 10 years we have been running hosted trips to this destination and each year it just gets bigger. The offshore species will include Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and Dorados. These can all be targeted on the same day which is a major pull for the sea of Cortez.
The inshore fishing at Palma De Cortez is excellent. You can expect to catch Roosters, Jacks, and Snappers. Occasionally the Dorado come in very close to feed on the huge inshore bait balls. Along with all of the above, if you decide to fish the many reefs you will also catch many different types of Snappers plus the very hard fighting Amber Jacks which grow to a very good size.

Sea Trout fishing at Las Buitreras Lodge in Argentina is like fishing for Atlantics or Steelheads.
