The last week of May was a wash for fishing in Costa Rica…literally.

Tropical storm Alma decided to form above Costa Rica. We had heavy rains and strong winds for a week. It was so bad CNN was in town and a dozen boats sank in Quepos.

We had power outages, downed phone lines and landslides…it was a mess.

The sun did come out eventually and things are getting back to normal.

Captain Kevin on the “Hoo’s up” had a decent day with 3 nice dorado, a wahoo, 3 snappers and 4 roosterfish.

RJ Lilley had a interesting day on the beach. He caught a 10 pound snook on a crappie jig fishing in the river mouth in Jaco. Moments later RJ had a save a drunk lady that tried to cross the river mouth not realizing it had been washed out by the rain and in now 8 feet deep with strong currents. Way to go Reggie…karma points.

I fished in front of my house in Esterillos the other day and had a 20 plus pound snook follow a mullet colored Rapala up to my feet. I plan on going back every morning until I get that slab.

Thanks for your time
