Costa Rica is home to the some of the largest Tarpon in the world. Tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) are the "Silver Kings" of our coastal waters and can grow beyond 6 feet in length and weigh as much as 350 lbs.
The Tarpon is known for its spectacular leaps when hooked in an attempt to get away. The world record for Tarpon caught using a hook and line is 281 lbs. When afraid, the tarpon produces sound in the form of thumps using its swim bladder.
At Silver King Lodge, we specialize in finding these silver beauties.
