John W had a stellar day out there today, landing this really nice 350 pound Blue Marlin and 4 sailfish! The Blue Marlin put up a great fight, over an hour to get to the leader and it made several 800-1000 yard runs like the one in the picture, making us use the full reverse to keep it from getting away! Great day of fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Just got in some new toys for the fishing boats! This year out fishing, we seriously wore out some reels with several double digit 100+ pound billfish days. So here are some of our new sailfishing rigs. We also ordered a bunch of FinNor powerlite rods, so we are ready for some more Epic fishing battles. Gotta love New Shimano fishing gear! On to the Quepos fishing reports!
Top Water fishing has been pretty good. We have been averaging about 2-4 sailfish bites a trip, releasing about half of those. There have also been some good floating debris finds offshore, there were a couple of days this last week we found a floating trees loaded with 15 to 35 pound dorado. One of those days, John W really wore out his customers catching 21 dorado and a sailfish. We have also been passing by a deep water reef on the way out, and that has been some hot grouper and snapper fishing. Weather has been good, ocean has been calm, great fishing weather! July has been some great days with food fish and sportfish, really great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Been some really good weather out here as well, it's been really predictable so far this rainy season, it's hasn't rained yet before 5PM, so we have had super sunny days out on the water! Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Mike had an amazing day out today on our 32 foot Stress Reeliever 1! The first thing the customers asked Capt Mike for was a full cooler, so he went out to one of his honey holes and filled the cooler up with grouper and snapper. Around lunch they decided to switch it up and go for some sails, and in just a half day Mike managed to get all four customers their own billfish! Check out the cool action shots above of the sailfish looking at the teaser, biting it and then running off with it. Great day of Fishing out here in sunny Quepos Costa Rica!

Just received these awesome pictures from some customers that went out with capt. John W and mate Alex on the Stress Reeliever 2. They ended up releasing 5 sailfish and then hooking into a really nice blue Marlin to finish out their day! Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
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 summer we also did really well with the sailfish, releasing several each trip and there were quite a few dorado around for food. There is also an offshore reef that heats up sometimes for the huge snapper, so that will start being an option soon as well. Inshore fishing during the summer will be great as well, the bait is generally good, and good bait means big roosterfish! May-August is going to be awesome!!!

Thinking about doing something tropical but don't know where to start? I'd love to get everything setup for you! I have stayed at almost every hotel here, I know which ones you will like and which ones are prettier on their webpages :) Let me handle all the details like hotel reservations and transport, so you can focus on just relaxing. Also, Costa Rica is the safest country in Latin America, and with us guiding your vacation, you can experience the very best parts of this amazing country. Costa Rica is more than just pretty beaches and year round summer! After you have been out on the cobalt blue pacific in my 32 foot Ocean Master catching huge fish, you should explore the rest of this country. 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. Even if you can't fish, I love to answer any questions you have at all about the country. I have been to just about everywhere there is to go here, and I'd love to share what I loved. But a bit of warning, after my first trip here, I was hooked, so be careful or we just might become neighbors :)
Providing a personal touch to the World Class charter boat offshore and inshore sportfishing in Quepos Costa Rica. Directly serving the Manuel Antonio and Quepos area of Puntarenas, Costa Rica. 45 minutes south of Herradura, Los Suenos and Jaco, 30 minutes north of Dominical, or a 30 minute flight from San Jose. Our main focus is sportfishing for large billfish including Sailfish, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, and Striped Marlin. Other offshore and inshore fish that we target are Dorado, (aka dolphin, Mahi Mahi) yellowfin tuna, amberjack, snapper, and rooster fish.
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 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).
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 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.
Unlike most websites in Google, we are not a booking agency. John S owns all three of our boats, so you are communicating directly with the owner of the company, 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.
