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!

Had some swimmers out there today! Seeing lots of sailfish out there every trip, several days over 10 releases a few over 20 (and one slow day :) but that happpens). There have also been some big mahi around, and one day this week we had some tuna. Weather has been perfect, water a nice 78 degrees, and no rain. These guys decided they wanted to jump in with some of the sailfish and "do it right" taking pictures with the fish! Great fishing lately here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Some great pictures from out there today! Been several several days with double digit sailfish. And check out that nice double dorado hookup, one bull and one cow! Also, the shot below is of an awesome school of yellow fin tuna. Check out how flat the water is below, that gives you a good feel of what it's like out there right now! You start with super flat deep blue ocean, then imagine 80 degree weather with a 5 mile per hour 70 degree breeze :) Great fishing out 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.
