Host / Founder TV's Offshore Adventures
Mothershiping around the world allows us access to world class fishing to super remote locations. We don't often find ourselves fishing in places where there are lodges, but we are regulars in Pinas Bay, anchored right in front of the Tropic Star Lodge®. The fishery there is truly world class.
World Renowned Marine Artist
"Down at Tropic Star Lodge, every fish is big. Having been there so many times, I still don't get any sleep the first night because I am just thinking about the marlins. It's the best place, the best value for the money, and the best marlin fishing in the western hemisphere."
Tropic Star Lodge® was absolutely first class and we were totally taken care of. We can't thank you enough! It was one of our favorite adventures so far!!! If you have some other celebs that are not sure, I'll be happy to convince them what a great time it is.
Host, TV's The Hunt for Big Fish
"I'm making my third trip to Tropic Star, and this time I'm bringing my wife! Great food, staff, boats, captains, and 5-star accommodations, plus excellent fishing for tuna, sails, cuberas, dolphin, blacks and blue marlin make this one of the top fishing destinations in the world!"
"As a traveling angler who's seen some of the best our sport has to offer, I don't think you'll find another fishing lodge in the world that can match the consistently excellent service and fishing opportunities found at Tropic Star Lodge®."

Host – Escape to the Wild – VERSUS
This trip to Tropic Star Lodge® will go down as one for the ages! Our show winner, Gary Babineau landed TWO blues, FIVE sails, a 70 lb rooster AND oh by the way a 50 lb dodo! All in three days! How awesome is that? I told him, he doesn’t know what he’s accomplished. The fishing was fantastic, as was the food, fellowship and service. Everyone at Tropic Star Lodge® treated Gary like the hero he is and made his trip one he will never forget. On behalf of Gary and our film crew, thanks for all you did to make a deserving young man’s fishing dreams come true. You folks are simply THE best!
Writer, Professional Photographer
I come to Tropic Star Lodge® because the place is like a Royal Angling Jurassic Park. The world's best captains and mates are the guides, putting clients in regular and intimate contact with some of the world's most exciting fish. Going there as a photographer is like getting a ringside ticket to fishing's main event, and when the boats start racing away from the dock as the sun rises over Pinas Bay, the feeling that a big black might be rocketing skywards just off the transom within 30 minutes- that very real potential- as an angler, or sports journalist photographer, that's where I want to be more than anywhere on earth. I've enjoyed documenting the Tropic Star experience, and having my photos chosen for use in Guy Harvey's book on Tropic Star Lodge® is an honor.
Legendary Fly Fisherman
"I first fished at Tropic Star Lodge® in 1964, and I'm pleased to say that the fishing is still spectacular, and the accommodations, food, boats and crews - are better than ever! I try to fly fish there once or twice a year."
Host, ESPN's Walker's Cay Chronicles
"Fabulous location, easily reached, opulent accommodations, friendly people, excellent equipment, knowledgeable crews, and, oh yes...incredible fishing!
Two words pretty well sum it up: MERELY SPECTACULAR!"
Executive Producer/Host, Mark Sosin's Salt Water Journal
"Tropic Star Lodge® ranks as one of the world's premier fishing destinations and is one of my favorite places to fish. I can hardly wait to go back."
President - International Game Fish Association
“No matter where my travels have taken me around the world, invariably the anglers I speak with all list Tropic Star Lodge® as their top dream destination to fish. Its combination of incredible fishing, 5 star accommodations and service, set in such a beautiful wild environment, truly make it a magical place. Whether it is inshore fishing for the rooster fish and monster snapper or offshore fishing one of the world’s most phenomenal marlin bites, I strongly recommend TSL to any and all serious fishermen.”
Legendary Captain of The Hooker
Talk about local knowledge. I've fished against (and with) the very best Captain's and crew around the world and I'd put the Captain's & crew at Tropic Star Lodge® against any of them. A once in a lifetime experience."

Absolutely wonderful trip as usual! We fished a half day the first day and had 8 sailfish and 1 rooster. Second and third days we had tuna to 80lbs and a blue marlin around 300lbs... the last two days we focused on rooster with dads pushing 70lb and my buddy Josh's pushing 60lbs... my biggest around 55 or so... many others in the 30-45lb range and some nice snappers to boot... the best inshore fishing I have ever seen!!!!
