Wonderful offshore fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica! John W landed a nice Black Marlin and a sailfish before lunch. Since the customers were worn out, but didn't have dinner, he spent the afternoon over a reef and loaded up on some snapper and grouper. Ocean was like a big swimming pool and the weather was bright and sunny! Glad to see the Marlin showing up, last year we had lots of Marlin from August to November and hopefully this year will be the same!

Great day out there today! John W landed a nice Blue Marlin and then had a couple of sails. He also stoped on the way out and racked up some snapper and grouper, so everybody got some filets to take and eat out! I'm not sure if the Marlin are in for good, or if just this week, but we should be coming into Marlin season so I'm hoping to see some more big ones out there every week!

Great day out there today! Average boat in Quepos released 1 sailfish, but John W on our boat the Stress Reeliever 2 went 6 for 6 on sailfish! John W really had a good bead on where to stop running, they had the first fish on in 30 minutes, and then around 1 PM the customers had released 3 sailfish each and were worn out and ready to go in! Weather has been really nice as well out here, and it's been some fun trip out! We have been breaking up the offshore days lately with some great bottom fishing as well, there have been some really nice snapper down there, and we have also been getting everybody some nice grouper for those fish dinners! Great fishing out here in Quepos!

Fishing has been really amazing lately, today John W finished with 13 sailfish releases out of 16 hookups and then ended the day with a nice Dorado! Early this month there was a huge tournament, the biggest billfish tournament in the world, and on the second day Quepos Costa Rica set a record for billfish released with 67 boats releasing 920 sailfish! Never before has that many billfish been released in a single day of an IGFA tournament, putting Quepos on the fishing map as the best place in the world to land 100+ pound Pacific sailfish! As we get closer to May, I expect to see more of these big Dorado and we expect to see more Marlin as well. Sail fishing usually slows down to 4-6 releases per day in May, but we haven't seen that yet as John W is going double digits everyday out there. Ocean has been staying pretty flat, we've been seeing some overcast mornings, sunny mid days and then the rain has been coming in around 4PM pretty regularly, and fishing has been off the charts! Great day of fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Another amazing day or fishing and more importantly catching fish here in Quepos Costa Rica! John W was especially fishy today, and released 11 sailfish and had several more big fish hooked up. Water today was crystal blue and like a warm swimming pool loaded with big pointy nosed fish! Add to that a great cameraman and we had a great day of fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

24 Sailfish and a Dorado released today by John W on the 30 foot Stress Reeliever 2. Amazing day of fishing, so far the hottest this year. Also a really nice day out there, 78 degrees, 5 mile an hour wind, totally completely flat ocean, lots of big fish, great day of fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
August to November
Starting to see some big Marlin, and hopefully this year will be as good as last year. Last year we had tons of nice marlin from August to October, and we also saw lots of sailfish and Dorado. There is also a reef on the way out that has really heated up and we should have the chance on most offshore trips to nail the snapper, grouper and tilefish. Lots of action and plenty of food fish every trip! Inshore, we are also seeing more snapper and I think that should be consistent. Roosterfish are going to be bigger during these months, it will take a little more work to find them, but I don't think we will have any full day trips where we don't get into at least a few. Weather should be good during the day, some good rain at night, and usually the ocean is flat out here. Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Giving you the best fishing experience for your dollar, providing a top notch experience at both inshore and offshore fishing sportfishing in 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 focus is sportifshing for Sailfish, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, and Striped Marlin. Other fish we like to go after are Dorado, (aka dolphin, Mahi Mahi) yellowfin tuna, amberjack, snapper, and rooster fish (inshore).
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.
