Nicaragua has the best spots for dropping a hook. San Juan del Sur has deep-sea fishing, with sailfish and dorado the catch of the day. Jacks, roosterfish, and snapper are other species fished out of the inshore waters. Sport fishing also turns up some huge and colorful specimens in the gorgeous waters of the Corn Islands. Kingfish, red snapper, and barracuda are in abundance, and bonefishing from the shore is also possible. Lake Nicaragua provides the best opportunity for freshwater fishing, with huge tarpon and guapote often ending up on restaurant dinner plates.
