    Default Fishing Ometepe-Lake Nicaragua

    This post was inspired by Marti suggesting Lake Nicaragua for some great Fishing :-).

    The best Fresh Water Fishing in ALL of Nicaragua is in Ometepe and Solentiname.

    Here During the months of July-September, the fishing is Sureal.

    Best Lures are.

    1): Deep Diving plugs in Red Colors.

    2): Rattle traps, in Red and Silver Colors

    3) Shallow running crank baits, Rapalas are my number one.

    It is best to Cast parallel to the shorelines(Rocks) in the early morning, 5:00-9:00AM, then troll the reminder of the day. then After 4:00PM cast the shore lines again.

    Expect to catch:

    1). Guapotes from 2-8 pounds.

    2) Mojarras-Read and Black Kind, from 1-2 pounds

    3) Machacas from 1-5 pounds

    4) an ocational Snook and a rrare Pez Sierra(Sword Fish) that can exceed 100 pounds.

    Tackle:

    6-7 foot medium action Rod, preferably with a spin casting rod, spooled with at least 20 pound test line of 50 pound test Spider wire braided line.

    Lodging:

    I always Fish out of San Ramon, at Estacion
    Biologica San Ramon, I have never fished Solentiname,so I can't reccomend any lodging there.

    Hope this helps,anyone trying their luck in Lake Nicaragua.

    Hey Felix,

    I being a salt water fisherman, have heard tales of Bull Sharks in those waters, is it so?

    To be called a "Has Been" I must surmise, is much Greater than to be called a "Nevah Been"... JW...

    Default nop buddy

    I think that I may have hooked a pez cierra/saw fish once, but no sharks.

    there are plenty of bull sharks in the lake,specially near the Rio San Juan area.
