The Richiest Waters in the World
The Colombian Pacific is one of the last unexplored saltwater fishing frontiers, with over 500 miles of uncharted, pristine coastline. Deep canyons start just a few miles offshore, providing anglers an incredible mix of inshore and offshore species. In a typical day anglers will fish for offshore species like sailfish, yellowfin tuna and mahi in the morning, and seek inshore species like cubera, pargo, roosterfish and snook in the afternoon, while using a variety of light tackle fishing techniques with top quality gear provided by Black Sands. Weather is stable year round so anglers will make the most of their precious vacation time. Bahia Solano is a well kept secret among a small group of hardcore anglers, but prior to the launch of Black Sands there wasn’t a world class sportfishing operation commensurate with the fishing opportunities.
The Colombian Pacific is virtually unknown among anglers, as until recently there were no international quality fishing operations available. The lack of infrastructure and big marinas has kept this area in pristine condition with very little pressure on the fishery, making it one of the true last frontiers for sportfishing.
The water depth drops to thousands of feet just miles from shore, so often you will be fishing for pelagic species with the mountains and jungle as your background. Depending on what you wish to target, we will try different techniques, trolling lures or dead bait, bait and swicth or live bait trolling.
The inshore fishing is very stable throughout the year, as most of the prime species are resident. The area has a very defined and characteristic coast line with sharp edges, strong currents, rocky shores and numerous river outlets that feed fresh water and baitfish into the ocean. The shoreline extends for hundreds of miles of untouched waters that offer some exceptional opportunities for popping and jigging. Slow trolling live bait while cruising and casting tends
to produce some amazing bites
Fly fishing with Black Sands is a unique experience. Depending on the targeted species you will find yourself sight casting to massive schools of busting Yellowfins, teasing Sailfish or casting among beautiful structures among the shorelines and rock formations in search of Roosterfish, Tarpon, Snook or giant Cuberas.
