Been some good sailfishing out there lately, just like there is every January. But what we usually don't see are the Massive Yellow Fin Tuna! Check out this beast that our boat, the Cowboy, got last week! Other than the tuna and sails, the weather has been perfect and there has been no rain. Great days fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Really great day out there offshore today, John W and Alex hooked up 13 nice sailflish getting 9 to the boat. With only two customers on board, they were pretty worn out! Fishing has been getting better lately, seeing some good sailfish out there most trips, and then we even had a rare day where we got into some Yellow Fin Tuna. Tuna are typically not around this time of the year, but it was a lot of fun and we got into some nice ones. Weather has been better than perfect, nice cool breeze, no waves or rain, great fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Been some great fishing lately. Alex took out the Stress Reeliever 2 today, and they had 9 sailfish hooked up, releasing 6. Even with all that sailfishing, they still had enough time to get over to the reef and grab some nice groupers. Although the marlin weren't out today, there have been quite a few marlin around as well. Above is a great marlin release picture from this week. Below is captain Alex with some of the bottom critters he hooked up for dinner. Weather has also been PERFECT, no waves, great breeze, 75 Degrees and no rain. Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
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!
Mid September 2015
Been having a great September out here so far offshore! Been lots of sailfish out, several shots per day, and we've also seen some nice mahi and Wahoo. Check out these awesome action shots!
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!

One of the most diverse places on Earth, Costa Rica has much more than just the awesome beaches which are 5 minutes from the docks.

The best value and personal experience for first class offshore and inshore sport fishing in Costa Rica and Pacific Central America. 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. Other sportfish species that we go after are 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.
