Stress Reeliever, Quepos, Costa Rica Fishing with Reports
Had a double Marlin hookup today, that's been 4 marlin hook ups in 3 trips, fishing has been really hot. I haven't had my camera with me, so these are the best shots, but what a beast. The biggest of the group was a 500 pounder, and the smallest was around 250, three blacks and a blue. Lots of Marlin action, bringing the camera out the next few days and see if I can get some aerial shots!
Another huge Trophy Roosterfish by Mike on the SR 1, look at the size of this one. The first picture kind of makes me laugh, looks just like our last president a bit, at least I thought so. Awesome day out rooster fishing in Quepos with a huge Rooster released!
Been a ton of Huge Dorado out the last couple days! We have also really been getting in the sailfish, our best day with 19 releases. Check out the pics!
Great day out Roosterfishing today, we really got a trophy. Captain Mike on the SR 1 was really dialed in today and this Roosterfish was at least a 50 pound beast. Over an hour fight on the light spinning rod, what an awesome time inshore fishing!
Just got all new Shimano Reels for the Stress Reeliever 1 with captain Mike. This is how we break in reels Costa Rican Style!
Fishing has been really really hot lately. There have been tons of sailfish out, we are getting over ten shots a day and have been for the last 3 weeks. Today, I also got a new camera, so I will finally get some good pictures up here. I bought one of those new Nikon DSLR cameras with the polarized lens and everything. Check out the awesome jumping photos above. It also has a video option, so check out the You Tube Video above! Today we also had a Albino sailfish pass the boat, that's the first part of the video and it's also the photo below. We were actually hooked up to a different sailfish when we saw this one swimming around and around the boat. We tried to cast out to it, but it was just curious about us and not hungry. Lots of sailfish out today, I think we have gotten a sailfish for everybody on the boat every trip out for the last three weeks, been a great time! Enjoy the Costa Rican fishing pictures, more to come soon!
Wow, Christmas fishing has been awesome! We went out today and boated a nice Marlin and three sailfish. We also had another of those crazy customers who jumped in a swam with the Marlin before we released it, it was an awesome time! This week has been really good for the Marlin, we've had 3 in the last four trips, two blacks and this one, and every week seems to get busier! Check out the awesome photos!
Check out our latest video we took showing our radar finding birds:
Marlin season is upon us! Here in the summer are when the big Marlin come out and we are so looking forward to some awesome billfish action! Starting in late April and lasting through August, Costa Rica is one of the best places in the world to snag a big Black Marlin. There should also be some Blue Marlin out as well, and it will be an exciting time! Last year during these months there were also a ton of sailfish around. This year we have tons of new tricks in addition to the old ones so we should have some really great numbers! We just added 8 large tuna tubes to the Stress Reeliever 1, allowing us to hold a ton of live bonita. Bonita are the favorite food of any billfish, so this will give us a huge advantage when we come across the floating debris! In order to find this debirs, we just installed a 25KW Furuno 6 foot Open Array Radar on the Stress Reeliever 1 as well. This is the biggest, most powerful bird spotting tool available today! It gives us a constant map of all the boats within 10 miles, and more importantly, all the schools of birds within 6. Since the birds hang out on top of the Tuna or floating debris loaded with bait, we can scan a 12 nautical mile circle as we troll for the Marlin, and the results are going to be awesome! We have some new FinNor spinning gear on board for throwing poppers at Tuna as well, so we are going to have an awesome year! We also added a new trolling gear to the boat, so trolling live bait is going to be much more effective. The bottom bite also is super famous in May-August, so we expect to use our new Tuna Tubes with our Top of the line Furuno Sonar and start nailing the big Amberjacks and Cubera Snappers! Speaking of live bait, the inshore bite is going to be crazy! This new live bait trolling gear will allow us to troll our live bait inshore much more quietly and slowly, making for some awesome Roosterfish! We still have all our old tricks as well, with the high end Furuno Sonar, $10,000 dollars in sound deadening, downriggers, and full line of Penn, Shimano and Avet reels, just waiting for those big Roosterfish! May-August is going to be awesome!!!

Costa Rica is more than just pretty beaches and year round summer!

There is an awesome beach only 5 minutes from the boat dock called Manuel Anotnio beach and it's amazing! Also, there are active volcanoes with hot water parks, cloud forests, ATV rides, zip line tours, white water rafting, and awesome hiking and horseback trails scattered all over this sportsmans paradise. With so much to do, there will never be a dull moment. We can take care of all the details so you can just a have a great trip.

Costa Rica Fishing
Costa Rica is one of the premier places in the world not only to fish but to vacation. Boasting Several different climate types from cloud forests, volcanoes, and many tropical beaches, there is something for everyone here. On the Pacific side, there are an abundance of Marlin and Sailfish. On the Atlantic side there are tons of Tarpon. We are located and focus on the Marlin Sportfishing on the Pacific side of the country.
Quepos is one of the premier fishing spots in Costa Rica. Located in the dead center of the Pacific coast, it gives us access to fish various fishing grounds, including the same fishing grounds fished by Los Suenos and Dominical. Also protected by two large peninsulas, The water in front of Quepos is also the calmest water in Costa RIca, with wave heights rarely measuring over 3 feet. Great for first time fisherman, or fisherman who don't like to go home with bruises:)
Quepos Sportfishing / Charter Boats
Quepos has a pretty nice charter fleet. There are about 35 charter boats that are fishing in Quepos, about half of those are well maintained with good captains. If you are looking for a smaller or bigger boat, I am friends with almost everybody here and I can give you my discounted "agency" price on any charter boat fishing in Quepos. That price is usually similar to the price I offer the public on personal charter boat (for a simliar sized boat).
Manuel Antonio Hotels
Quepos is the town that is located next to Manuel Antonio park and beaches, which are the most sought after beaches in Cosat Rica. Low currents, clear water, great fishing, and cliff dwelling-ocean view hotels make this an unforgettable place to stay. Hotel prices are on par or lower than most average American hotels, but with a much nicer views!
Costa Rica Sportfishing
Costa Rica doesn't have fishing seasons and limits like the US, but that doesn't mean we can kill everything we hook. We release all billfish unless they come in dead (1 per year), that includes releasing both sailfish and Marlin.We are allowed to keep other gamefish though, and finding either a Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Amberjack or Snapper for dinner is almost always a possibility.
About Quepos Fishing Adventures
Unlike most websites in Google, we are not a booking agency. I own and drive the boat, so you are communicating directly with the captain of the trip, not someone upselling a friends boat to make a quick buck. Even if you don't book here, always book directly with the boat owner to get the best prices. Ask the person you talk with if they will be driving the boat. If they say no, they probably don't own it.
