Wow, really great day offshore with John W on the Stress Reeliever 2 releasing 17 sailfish out of around 30 hook ups and they also got to brought a nice pair of dorado home as well! Offshore fishing has been really hot, the tournament last week set a world record of 2314 sailfish released in 3 days, that many billfish have never been caught in a 3 day period of any tournament, awesome fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Sorry for the lack of posts. Been getting the boat ready for the IGFA World Championships. Today we just finished day three and in the first three days of the tournament we have had over 100 sailfish bites on the Stress Reeliever 2 with John W, been some crazy amazing offshore fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica! Last day of the tourney is tomorrow and then we'll start posting more regularly, but this has been the best offshore fishing anybody can remember here in Sunny Quepos Costa Rica!

Mate Alex and the customers finishing up the last two fish on of a Quad sailfish hookup!
Just finished up the second day of fishing with two of our new friends from Michigan on the Stress Reeliever 2 with John W, and we had some serious fishing fun! The first day out the bite was a bit better and we released 16 sailfish, including a quadruple header, a triple header and a double header! In addition to the sailfish bite, we also had a 300 pound blue Marlin hooked up for a while before he started grey-hounding right next to the boat and popping the leader! The second day out, we had a few less sailfish but released 3 big dorados that the customers brought over to have cooked several different ways at the Gran Escape here in town! Been some really amazing days out here fishing in beautiful Quepos Costa Rica!

Fishing offshore in Quepos this last week has been almost all sailfish, with lots of sailfish each trip and then one day we landed the nice Wahoo below. Today John W released 15 sailfish and had a Marlin on for a few minutes! The 30 gamefishermen has really heated up this month, John W has been top boat 5-6 days a week out of the Quepos fleet, it's been some busy busy trips with lots of catching of the big pointy nosed fish! :) Great fishing days out here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Been mostly sailfish out, going double digit releases often, but the dorado above still made for the best picture this week! Check out the size of that thing! I also really enjoyed the family picture, I really enjoy taking kids out fishing, nothing more fun than watching the kids' faces when they land fish twice the size of them! They were hooked up to a 120 pound sailfish, that was on one of our shared charters, and everybody on board reeled in at least one big sailfish! Great day of fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

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.
Marlin season is upon us! Here in the summer are when the big Marlin come out and we are so looking forward to some awesome billfish action! Starting in late April and lasting through August, Costa Rica is one of the best places in the world to snag a big Black Marlin. There should also be some Blue Marlin out as well, and it will be an exciting time! Last summer we also did really well with the sailfish, releasing several each trip and there were quite a few dorado around for food. There is also an offshore reef that heats up sometimes for the huge snapper, so that will start being an option soon as well. Inshore fishing during the summer will be great as well, the bait is generally good, and good bait means big roosterfish! May-August is going to be awesome!!!

We are personally involved in making your trip a first class offshore and inshore sportfishing experience in 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. 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.
