Had some swimmers out there today! Seeing lots of sailfish out there every trip, several days over 10 releases a few over 20 (and one slow day :) but that happpens). There have also been some big mahi around, and one day this week we had some tuna. Weather has been perfect, water a nice 78 degrees, and no rain. These guys decided they wanted to jump in with some of the sailfish and "do it right" taking pictures with the fish! Great fishing lately here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Some great pictures from out there today! Been several several days with double digit sailfish. And check out that nice double dorado hookup, one bull and one cow! Also, the shot below is of an awesome school of yellow fin tuna. Check out how flat the water is below, that gives you a good feel of what it's like out there right now! You start with super flat deep blue ocean, then imagine 80 degree weather with a 5 mile per hour 70 degree breeze :) Great fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Fishing has been really good lately, with John W releasing 9 sailfish today and a pair of big bull dorado! We are still seeing schools of sardines offshore, they are pretty easy to spot when they are around by all the birds. Check out the great shot of the birds below, and then as we went through the school, we landed a nice double hookup! Been some huge bull dorado around as well, check out the photo a customer just sent in of a bull dorado the same size as her! Weather has been perfect for fishing and the ocean has been flat as well, great fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Fishing has been off the charts lately! John W had his very best day ever with 70 sailfish raises and 40 hookups! There have been little schools of what are referred to here as "Red Sardines", which look like a little red spot in the water. They drive the birds nuts, as you can see below. When we come across these schools, it's game on for the fishing. The red sardines attract small yellow fin and bonita and skipjack, which in turn bring tons of sailfish and Mahi. When we pass by the school, we usually have multiple sailfish strikes, and there have been several times with 5 sailfish on the lines at the same time! Been some nice dorado around as well, big bulls, and the weather has been perfect! Great fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Billfish season has officially begun here in Quepos! Today John W went out on our 32 footer Stress Reeliever 1 and released this awesome 300+ pound Black Marlin, 6 sailfish, and a nice Mahi! It was all day action and exhausted customers, Quepos Fishing Style! Check out how nice calm and blue the water is as well! Right now the fish are just starting to bunch up right in front of Quepos, all the fish today were caught right at 20 miles out, so it meant a short drive and more REEL TIME! Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica, I'm sure we're about to see quite a few more nice fish pics up here in the next 6 months of our billfish season!
Billfish season is here! November through April is when all the sailfish and Marlin come out and we are so looking forward to some awesome billfish action offshore! Inshore this is also the best time of the year, we usually have big scools of sardines run through the area bringing with them roosterfish, snapper and sometimes snook. Johnny alos has some hidden seabass spots, so inshore fishing will be great! This is also the time of the year when the ocean really lays down and there are no waves or rain. Great for families or people who like to catch lots of fish without getting beat up! The weather will be 70 at night and 80 during the day for the whole 6 months, so Costa Rica is a great escape from the snow and ice of up north. This year John W's Stress Reeliever 2 just received a corecell foam floor to help deaden vibrations as well. This 30 thousand dollar upgrade should be good for at least 2-4 extra sailfish a trip. Going to be some great fishing out here in Sunny Quepos Costa Rica!

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. We are based in the Manuel Anotnio and Quepos area of Puntarenas, Costa Rica. We are only a short 45 minute drive South of Los Suenos, Herradura and Jaco. We are only 30 minutes north of Dominical and Uvita, and it is only 20 minutes or 2 hours by car from San jose. Our main target species we sportfish for include Sailfish, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, and Striped Marlin. Other sportfish species that we go after 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.
