    I have fished Kodiak Alaska, and the Florida Keys, enjoyed them both. Am planning a trip next spring for another adventure. Any past experience with other areas would be appreciated. Thanks Jim

    Try blue and black marlin fishing in Panama (Tropic Star Lodge) with a shot at huge yellow fins (tuna) in the 200-300lb range; Pacific sailfish in Costa Rica (Crocodile Bay Lodge). Been to both places multiple times and have come back with great memories and pictures.

    Jim, not sure as to what kind of fishing you might pursue but I can tell you of a place where you can camp and catch the most largemouth bass of your life. It is in central California and is an extremely well kept secret. I have fished it a number of times and often caught over 500 bass a week.(two of us fishing out of the same boat) Early in the morning and late in the evening fish a buzz bait for an awsome time. I have made 7 casts and reeled in 5 smallmouths which weighted over 5 pounds each. The largest bass(they are Florida strain largemouths) I caught was 9 lbs 2 ozs. Not the biggest bass but definitely top catches. Give me a call or email me if interested. Jackie B.

    I just had a friend that got back from Yellowstone and he said it was somewhere between incredible and unbelievable. I never fished much, but I'm definately thinking about making a trip out next year with him.
