VENEZUELA - MAIN

Overview

Venezuela's varied landscape includes the rugged Andes Mountains, parts of the Amazon Jungle, a diverse selection of National Parks and a beautiful Caribbean coastline. Major attractions include Caracas with its cultural attractions and shopping venues; the world renowned Angel Falls; Isla Margarita with its miles of unspoiled coastline and sandy beaches; Andes Mountain vistas, including Pico Bolivar; the Orinoco River and the Guiana Highlands with its wonders of the Amazon Jungle.

From an angling perspective, Venezuela has a great deal to offer the destination angler and we feel that the country has two of the best fisheries available in this hemisphere. Los Roques and the La Guaira Bank are both outstanding angling venues and it is our opinion that neither of these locations gets the angling respect that they each deserve! Situated 90 miles off the Coast of Venezuela, the Los Roques National Park is a bonefishing paradise and, in many respects, remains one of the best kept secrets as a saltwater fishing destination. Los Roques is a world-class flats fishing destination in its own right and there is something at Los Roques for just about every angler who enjoys fishing shallow water. This is a varied and interesting fishery where excellent bonefishing is complemented by a variety of other hard fighting skinny water species.

The plankton-rich Caribbean waters off the north coast of Venezuela drift west and flows over the natural ocean ridge named El Placer (meaning The Pleasure) It's a natural phenomena similar to that found at the Zane Grey Reef on the west coast of Panama as well as parts of the Galapagos Islands. The El Placer Bank in La Guaira holds one of the world's most impressive billfish concentrations found anywhere. This underwater fishing paradise rises nearly 50 fathoms from a 140-plus fathoms depth of the surrounding bottom.

About 4 miles wide and 14 miles long, La Guaira Bank is just a brief 30-40 minute run from where the boats are docked at the marina. Aside from the incredible blue marlin action, the run of white marlin that takes place in La Guaira during the Fall (August - December) is unparalleled. Many anglers easily amass double digit releases during these months and some boats have recorded over 30 in a single day. Sword fish, sailfish, wahoo and tuna are all available in the same area throughout the year.
