Located 10km south of Tarponville just above the Sixiola river mouth is the "Gondoca Lagoon". Surrounded by mangroves and coconut trees, Gondoca offers another option for anglers to catch baby tarpon, snook and snapper. This can be a great option if seas are high and the tarpon fishing is slow.

Gandoca lagoon is your best chance at catching a snook for those anglers that are working on there bucket list.

While fishing the lagoon take some time to fish the ocean side along the shore casting into the current breaks and seems of the waves.

Tackle

Rod/Reels
8-10wt rods (same as permit set up) with a fast action for tight loops and strength to pull flies out of snagged mangroves. Mid to large arbor reels with reliable drag.

Lines (fly lines, backing)
A floating line matching the weight of rod. Intermediate sink tips can be added if more depth if needed. Backing should be of 25- 30 pound (heavier is fine) and a minimum length of 150 yards.
