Arrecife Los Roques
Los Roques Archipelago,which lies 80 miles off Venezuela’s mainland, along the Caribbean Sea, is considered to be among the best bonefishing places in the World.
The Archipelago consists of forty-eight keys or islands; when overlooked from airplane, they look like a string of pearls against the azure blue of the Caribbean.
Los Roques has been appointed as a National Park, thus no new building can be constructed on the islands; besides that, long-line fishermen have been forbidden and others kinds of fishing have been restricted or regulated. As a result, the amount of fish dwelling there was increased steadily, while other types of game fish have emerged into these protected waters, like big Tarpons weighing 80 lbs. and even up to 100 lbs. which can be sight cast either by wading or from the boat, big Permits, Jacks and enormous Snooks weighing around 20 lbs. have been hooked and released too.
No matter how one fishes for bonefish, perhaps the most challenging way is to wade the flats, spot tailing fish, creep slowly within casting distance and then make a presentation. If the fish are not startled, they will most likely pick up a jig or fly, and within seconds, the angler is hooked to a miniature-size express train. Of conventional tackle anglers may choose to fish from within the boat in deeper waters, where huge schools of feeding bonefish can be found. In those cases, 20 or more catches can be expected in a short period of time. Regardless of their size, bonefish can strip more line faster than any other fish of comparable size.
We have 28ft. fiberglass boats fully available for our clients, with equipment that includes 75HP Yamaha engines, VHF radios (in constant communications with the Main Island ), every emergency device for insuring a safe sail, as well as tee-tops.
Now to give more comfort to our clients and safety for the equipment in the case of Rouge Sea, we have adapted very comfortable cushion seats well as rod holders. Every boat has a captain and a guide, so fishermen will be left on the flats and the captain will pick them up at the end of the flats. This way fisherman will not have to walk back to the boat and lose time.
Our clients visiting Los Roques can stay at Posada Arrecife, a tastefully furnished lodge. Many amenities await you at Arrecife, since every room is equipped with air-conditioning, satellite TV and a phone. Meals will turn into a most enjoyable experience, as Arrecife offers a superb international cuisine served with European grace, as well as open bar (domestic rum, beer and a selection of red and white wines for dinner time)
To ensure your comfort, Arrecife has its own back-up electric generator to provide power for both air-conditioning and Arrecife’s industrial ice maker in the event of an energy failure. At Arrecife you will count on outstanding, top-quality service, provided by the new lodge keeper, as well as his warm staff, willing to meet any need or desire you may have.
