    I purchased a track of land on the beach and proceeded to clean up what would have appeared to be a dump, built a ranchito.

    Had plans of building some permanent buildings and setting up a small business with the employment of several people in mind with a projected budget of or investment of around $60,000.00 per year for the rest of my life.

    Tried to be open and friendly with the people, inviting them to come into the protection of the ranchito when it was raining, or hot, but some of the group obviously mistook my initial friendliness as being weak and started stealing right away.

    One might tolerate a bit of mischief, however, when they will not respect the property as defined by known markings (cerca), a five wire fence was constructed around the place.

    When not on the property, the intruders would molest the roof of the ranchito (kids in the rafters), poop in the center of the floor and of course make a little woopee, leaving their trailings behind.

    With continued disregard of another's property, it was close to the point of killing someone or being killed, so I fired the ranchito for no further use by the savages.

    Responding, they stole the fence.........wire, post and all.

    When I return, or should I return, I will bring a pit bull bitch dog full of pups and raise them on the property under guide of an electric fence. At that time entry past the wire will be at their own peril.

    I love Nicaragua and have since the early 60's, but there are laws for the gringos to obey and none to be enforced against the indigenous people. The cards are stacked.

    Understand that there are many good people in this zone, however, there is no, and I repeat no enforcement against the delinquents.
    Most Nica"s have no concept of private property. Unless it"s theirs.

    So it's like, what is yours is mine and what is mine is mine. Or is it like what is mine is his or what is his, his. Ok, got it or maybe he has it. BANG! OK now it's mine.

    He said the restaurant was in La Trinidad. I can't recall the name of the restaurant but I have the show recorded and can find out.

    Hi guys, I'm new here and glad to find many other persons that love Nicaragua.
    I'm Italian, but married with a Nicaraguan, and I spent more than 1 year working in the Volcanoes country.
    I'm an addicted angler as well as sportfishing journalist and I have fished in many spots with not so bad results.

    I was two times in Rumble in the Jungle Lodge for making some videos and I enjoy a lot, even I wasn't in the tarpon season...
    well I hope to participate more at the forum, greetings from Italy

    Thanks,
    No I have fished in Kukra, Cacao, Torsuani and Escondido rivers, not so far from the Lodge (all comes to Bluefields lagoon).
    It was Dicember and the water was still bit dirty for Tarpon full activity. I go out for bluewater (near outside cayos) the last day and hooked six kings (20-60 lbs max), all out at the first jump, except for two that goes out at the leader (BSTDs!) ...
    bye

    I am glad somebody had a good trip there. I went there last year and was highly disappointed, all the way around, with my experience.

    Nope, no tarpon, only saw a couple roll. 2.5 days of fishing and caught about 3-4 snook, one nice sized one. The guides were all about trying to have us catch Jack fish, and when I made our reservations I explicitly explained to them that I would rather have anal herpes than catch Jack fish. In the days of my youth working on the Texas coast I caught and saw enough Jack fish to last me a lifetime. I have never landed a Tarpon and have only hooked like 7 thus I was more interested in pulling out all stops to try and catch a Tarpon.

    They only fish with trolled rapala's, actually I think that is the only way they know how to fish. The boat we were on was uncomfortable and not readily reliable so that added to the whole experience. To get into Tarpon I was basically told that an upsell was necessary in order to run up to the Pearl Lagoon area, OK. I wish I would have known that when I booked the trip as I might have planned for it.

    The food for the most part was good, and they surely did make us feel at home and it was not an unpleasant experience, but for the effort and expense involved I thought it should have been a little more productive. The guides were young and were a little lacking in "on the boat" customer service, but that is due to experience.

    I was not mad or upset at all as the scenery is great and I realize the expense of having that kind of operation in that kind of place. But, with a little more effort it could have been much, much better. I am glad I did it and have no regrets, but I will not repeat, that is the gist of the matter.

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

    There is one of the reasons that I like you so much JPJW, not factoring in that you are Carolina boy.

    But I refuse to cheat at catching Jack Fish........
