The fishing at San Lazaro is similar to Las Salinas, however, the water is generally a little deeper and the area bigger so that most of the fishing is from skiffs that are essential to fully explore the fishing grounds and flats. Typical fishing grounds in this area are Mangrove islands, sand bars, shallow flats and creeks. This is mainly a bonefishing destination although there are other species such as a Tarpon, Permit, Jacks and Barracuda. This area is completely unexplored, so as the operation develops over the years consistent tarpon and permit fishing areas are sure to become a feature of this destination.
The crystal clear waters which are up to a metre deep offer great opportunities to spot fish a long way off. Whilst many will prefer to fish from skiffs, there are opportunities to walk and wade for those who want to and the bottom is a mix of hard sand and coral. Bonefish tend to be in the region of two to four pounds in weight but bigger fish are around and have been seen and caught up to a staggering twelve pounds.
A typical day starts after breakfast at 07:00am, leaving with skiffs at 8:00am. You will return to the boat for lunch and siesta and will fish again from 15:30pm to dusk, when you will return to the Georgiana for aperitifs and cocktail followed by dinner.
We would advise all anglers to bring their own equipment - rods, reels, lines, flies, wading boots, polarized glasses etc and any spares that you might need. There is no rental or spare gear at this location.
