January 29, 2010 – Costa Rica fishing heats up

Everyone expected the fishing to get good soon and it kinda started yesterday and the bite was much improved today.  There were lots of sailfish and mahi mahi caught, lots of marlin seen and even some yellowfin tuna came in range.

My buddies went out 25 miles in our boat and caught 3 sailfish, 4 mahi mahi and missed a 300 pound marlin.

The guys on the 38′ custom got into a big batch of yellowfin and caught a bunch of 20 pounders on topwater poppers.

The guys on the 32′ Irwin Forbes found a cargo net and caught more than a dozen nice mahi mahi…away from the net they releases a half dozen sailfish.

The guys on the 32′ Albermarle hooked also caught good numbers of sails and mahi mahi but the best fish was the 150 ish pound tuna that they hooked and fought for a while before it broke off.
