Tapam is a remote jungle fishery that focuses on fishing for tarpon in the 50 to 200-pound class. The fishing grounds include a large brackish bay, channels, and more distant inland lagoons which are the winter home and feeding ground to a great number of massive tarpon. Although a good portion of the day is spent blind casting for these beasts in 10 to 30 feet of water, guests can at times witness large tarpon slashing and crashing bait with reckless abandon in plain sight. In addition to tarpon, many guests get shots at snook up to 20 pounds. With a new rustic lodge featuring single rooms, custom fly fishing boats, and new management, Fly Water Travel is back in the game of sending guests to this unique and challenging trophy tarpon destination.
The video below was originally released in 2010 and shows the exploratory fishing at Tapam. Enjoy!
