Wow, John W had HUGE days out there last Friday and Saturday. Friday they released 10 sailfish (and this isn't sailfish season), and then Saturday they had 15 sails and 2 Marlin in the spread! Check out the awesome Marlin above with his brightly colored "lit up" fins!

Just amazing fishing lately! I don't ever remember an August like this one. On the billfish side, John W has been averaging 3 or 4 sailfish AND and at least one Marlin hookup per trip. Today they spent more time looking for food fish and still managed to release 3 sails out of 5 hookups, and then had a really nice dorado, 11 Wahoo and around 20 YF Tuna. Crazy good Quepos offshore fishing lately, flat oceans, great Quepos Fishing Trips!

John W has been doing incredible lately! His three day sailfish total is 34 releases, and this is the "slow season"! Right before this great run of sailfish, we also saw quite a few nice marlin, and it's amazing how many billfish are out there! Alex also did a half day offshore yesterday and running to the bite and only having two hours to fish before running home still boated 4 sailfish. Been some amazing fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

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!
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!

Who We Are:
The best value and personal experience for first class offshore and inshore sport fishing in Costa Rica and Pacific Central America. 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. 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 four 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.
