February 27, 2010 – tsunami warning and fishing

I woke up this morning to a tsunami warning after one of the largest quake ever recorded hit the coast of Chile last night.  So I figured it was a good morning for a couple shots of Bailey’s Irish Cream with my morning coffee.  I warned my neighbors without tv, put all my animals in […]

February 26, 2010 – Costa Rica Fishing

It seems like guys are seeing fish but they are still biting strange. My buddy on the 32′ Irwin Forbes went 3 for 10 yesterday.  Captain Jorge on the 28′ center console raised 7 and released 2 today and the guys on the 28′ Carolina Classic went 3 for 6 yesterday.  I think everyone caught […]

February 25, 2010 – Costa Rica photos

  The first report I received today sounded good.   The guys on the 32′ irwin Forbes raised 10 fish including 2 marlin…the fish were biting wierd so they only ended up with 3 sailfish releases.  The big marlin just came and went.  They fished about 25 miles down south. Above are a few pics […]

charter do’s and don’t

I had a group contact me a few days ago and told me they needed a 50′ boat for 2 days offshore.  They said they are upscale customers and wanted something really nice.  I told them there were a couple big, old, smokey, slow, crappy charter boats in the charter dock but I wouldn’t put […]

February 24, 2010 – Costa Rica Fishing

The fishing the past few days out of Los Suenos has been good but not great.  Most of the boats are getting anywhere fron 2 to 6 sailfish per day as well as a mahi mahi or two.  Most of the captains I talk to agree that the fish are out there…they also say that […]

great boat and crew available

  Through a series of very unusual events one of the best boats in the charter dock has come open from March 22 to March 30.   This newer 42′ is a beautiful boat with quality equipment, air conditioning and one of the best captaina nd crews in the marina.  I hve fished with these guys […]

February 21st, 2010 – tarpon, snook and lots of rain

  I just returned from a couple days fishing on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica and unfortunately it was a wash out.  A cold front moved in the afternoon we arrived and the next morning it started raining at 7 am and never let up.  It was cold and windy with hard rain.  It […]

February 17th, 2010 – Sailfish and fishing tourney

  The 2nd leg of the Los Suenos Billfish tournament starts tomorrow and everyone is being hush hush about the bite.   The sailfish bite has been hit or miss this last week and there have been very few marlin around.  Most guys I have talked to have been getting anywhere from 3 to 6 sailfish […]

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 […]

February 12, 2010 – Costa Rica Sailfish

Today was a strange day offshore…some guys that got out really early had 10 to 15 sailfish bites and then it slowed down in the afternoon. My buddies went out in our boat while i was working like a rented mule all day and they raised 4 sails and 2 mahi mahi before noon and […]
