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!

Wow, this has got to be some type of record! Here is a photo of the monster 73 inch dorado from yesterday with mate Alex, it took three people to get it up for the picture, one of the best dorado I've seen so far. Fishing has been off the charts lately, our best day this week the guys released a nice 250 pound black marlin and 11 dorado. Weather has been really nice as well, we have been having overcast mornings (so it's nice and cool), sunny afternoons and then it has only been raining at nights. Great fishing out here in sunny Quepos Costa Rica!

Offshore fishing has been doing great for billfish so far this month! Johnny released a huge Marlin his last trip out, and John and Alex have been releasing multiple sailfish every trip out as well. Ocean has also been really flat out there, and we've only had one daytime rain so far this month, been some great September fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Been some pretty good Quepos fishing offshore lately. Today John W released 3 sails, Mike was out yesterday and released 3 as well, that seems to be the typical catch offshore for the last month. That is when they don't get the big marlin, two days back, John landed a really nice Blue Marlin and got into a pod of Killer Whales! Very neat to see the killer whales out here, they aren't super common, but these whales hung out around the boat for a good half hour and let us get a ton of video as they jumped and cruised with us! It was a great break from all the reeling after the big Blue Marlin! Flat ocean today, been really nice out lately, with some big fish and great summer weather! Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Here's a cool video of Alex freeing a sea turtle!

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, it's how we do fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

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!
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!

We are personally involved in making your trip a first class offshore and inshore sportfishing experience in Costa Rica. We are a personally run SportFishing Chrater boat operating out of Beautiful Quepos Manuel Anotnio in the state of Puntarenas, Costa Rica. A short distance to most things here on the Pacific we are only 30 minutes from most of the Rental houses in Dominical and Uvita. 45 minutes to the North, we have Los Suenos Marina in Herradura, Jaco. We are also a 2 hour drive or 20 minute flight from the capital, San Jose. Our main target species we sportfish for include Sailfish, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, and Striped Marlin. We also catch other offshore and inshore species including 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.
