Mardi Gras – Costa Rica

My assistant Martha helps organize a Mardi Gras in our town of Esterillos Oeste on the central Pacific coast.  This is the second year and they had a parade with motorcycles, floats, bands, ect.  They throw beads and candy to all the local kids that line the parade route.

This year one of my many dogs got some beads and one of my neighbors built a float replica of my boat the Disco Pirate.  I have taken him out for some fun fishing and he loved it… I think this is his way of trying to secure more fishing trips in the future.

The first reports I heard today were not very good.  The water was a little rougher than usual and the sailfish bite was slow…it even looks like we are going to get some rain tonight…weird weather for February in Costa Rica but I guess this was a weird weather week all over.

One of my best fruiends is coming into town tonight and we are fishing tomorrow on our boat and then Tuesday in Quepos on a brand new 43′ Maverick with the guys that just won the Harry Grey fly fishing tourney…and then we are heading to the Caribbean side for 3 days of tarpon fishing with the most famous tarpon guide in CR.  I sure hope the bite heats up.
