    Default Pearl Lagoon Complex March 2011

    A report from my friend Dave whom I went to Bluefields with two years ago. They just returned from staying with Randy at Rumble in the Jungle, a Bluefields area fishing resort.

    Got in late last night and am still getting acclimated to cold and rain. Too tired/lazy to do a full report, but here are a few photos.

    We arrived in Bluefields full of hope and optimism.


    A three hour panga ride brought us to the area north of Pearl Lagoon, where we were to stay for four nights.



    The locals - Moskito Indians - remembered us from last year and helped us unload our gear.



    In minutes we arrived at what we jokingly called the Karawalla Hilton





    Our rooms were as luxurious as we had remembered.



    To say Karawalla is romote would be a major understatement.



    But the people are so friendly we felt right at home.



    Truth be told to fishing was only fair. But we did manage to jump about 20 tarpon and landed three. We also got a few nice snook.














    We got out to the blue water for a few hours. KK hooked and lost two absolute screamers. We never got a look at either of them. We did land one nice barracuda on the fly





    In spite or only fair fishing we both had a great time. In part because of the people of Karawalla.

    This is a the local fish vendor with his turtle meat for sale.



    We give this man and wife one of our fish. They were VERY apprecative.



    This family is farming in the jungle. Their nearest neighbor is miles away.



    We gave the village kids baloons. They loved them!



    All and all, a great trip. But all good things come to an end.

    Thanks John and Jon, that shouldnt happen this time around as I don't believe these pics are destined for a magazine...yet

    I'm looking to make a trip down next year myself and try to time it as best as possible for the end of the dry season to get the best water conditions possible. Seems you guys had a wet year this year and rivers are still muddy.
