Fishing has been really good this week. Today John W was out and released 8 nice sailfish out of 11 they hooked up. The sailfish have also been super active once we get them on the line, jumping flipping making long runs, it's been super exciting. When the sailfish get mad, they turn bright blue, check out the electric blue fins on those first two sailfish pictures! We have also gotten into a ton of dorado, which is a little atypical of February, two days back we released 6 huge ones, check out the size of the one below. Dorado are fun because not only do they fight like sailfish, and not only can you eat them afterwards if you so choose, but they like to come in groups! Check out the nice double and triple hook up pictures below! Been great fishing here in sunny and warm Quepos.

Been a ton of sailfish around, this is one of our best years ever with the offshore boats releasing more than 10 sailfish every other trip, and always releasing more than one per person on board. Been some Dorado around as well, averaging one a trip, and the weather has been awesome! Yesterday John W also hit a nice big black Marlin, offshore fishing here in sunny and warm Quepos has been awesome!

This nice Mahi definitely didn't want to be dinner, but Alex is really good with that hook! :) Fishing has stayed hot, lots and lots of sailfish offshore, usually releasing several and we've had quite a few days releasing double digits. Since the rain stopped in late November, the blue water is coming closer and closer to Quepos and the run out is getting shorter which means more fishing time! Fishing a bit closer to Quepos also means we are starting to see more and more dorado each trip, and we are averaging around two big ones a trip with the sailfish. Been great weather, perfectly calm seas, great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Here is an awesome picture of a sailfish jumping behind Mike on our 32 foot Stress Reeliever 1!
Sailfish have been out in numbers lately, regularly seeing 20-50 bites a day with 10-30 releases, a few slower days but most have been crazy busy! Really great pictures have been pouring in as well, here's just a few of the 100 or so pictures I got in from just this week!

John W really went crazy today, hooking up with 47 sailfish and releasing 27 sailfish, most over 100 pounds! And they were crazy sailfish, jumping up to ten feet out of the water when he hooked them up! Check out the picture the customer shot of a huge sailfish up really high! Great day out, lots and lots of sailfish and the season just got started. They also released a few sets of Quad Sailfish (four at a time)!Both Mike and Johnny did really well today as well, Johnny has been getting lots of big roosterfish every trip and there have been some snook, snapper and triple tail out by the schools of sardines. Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Here are some other Quepos Fishing Pictures that I got in from this month:

Here's a neat picture and note I just got in today from a customer, thought I'd share!
Wow what a trip, so glad we booked an adventure with you! My girls had a great time - memories of a lifetime. Your crew was above expectation and for a party of 3 in one day we did really well releasing 8 sails and 9 Dorados.
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! We just got all three boats painted up and we just bought a ton of new reels and teasers, this will be our best year yet! In addition to the billfish, there should also be a great shot at Mahi offshore, and sometimes we will come across schools of Yellow Fin Tuna. If we can find floating debris offshore, not too hard a task with the big radar, we might be able to come across some Wahoo as well. Inshore fishing should also be off the charts as well on our new 28 footer. We spared no expense on setting up the live bait tanks and tubes, and our 28 footer is ready to catch some monster roosterfish! Johnny is more than excited about his new boat, going to be some busy days inshore!

Who We Are:
Providing a personal touch to the World Class charter boat offshore and inshore sportfishing in Quepos Costa Rica. We are very centrally located in the Manuel Anotnio / Quepos area of Puntarenas Costa Rica, only 45 minutes South of the Los Suenos sportfishing marina in Herradura / Jaco. We are also a short 30 minute drive from most of the Exquisite Vacation Homes located in the Dominical, Uvita, and Whale's Tale areas. We specialize in offering World class sportfishing for billfish species 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.
