The fishing at the Los Suenos Marina the past few weeks has been decent.  There have been a half dozen boats going out of the charter dock everyday and everyone has been catching some fish inshore and some sailfish offshore. …a couple boats have had big days.

The Cormier family recently fished with Captain Jerry on the Estrella de Mar and they caught 5 sailfish and 3 nice dorado.   Ken Cormier said they had an action packed vacation in Jaco with the great fishing, canopy tours, quad runner tours and horse back riding.  The captain fished inshore

Captain Bill Kieldsen on the Sailfish took Steve Lansch and his wife offshore at the beginning of August.  They released 3 sailfish…the captain said one of the sails was over 180 pounds.  Steve said he’s caught plenty of sailfish but never one that size.

A lucky group of guys from the states went offshore with the guys on the Barbarrosa and came across a big log about 30 miles out.  The log was a “honey hole”…they raised 9 blue marlin and released 4.  They also released 4 sailfish, 2 shark and they kept a couple tuna for dinner.  The lesson here is even if the fishing is just average you should go.  You could be the lucky guys that stumble across the next “honey hole”.

Captain RJ Lilley on the Predator fished the 26 rock (a submerged rock 20 miles from Los Suenos) with a couple from Cuba.  The fishing was a little slow but they stuck it out by the rock and were rewarded with a small tuna, small wahoo and a 400 pound black marlin.  That’s 3 blacks for Lilley in the past 2 months at the 26 rock.

Jason Betker fished inshore and offshore with guys on the Scorpion out of Los Suenos.  They caught a handful of nice dorado with a few over 40 pounds.  They also caught yellowfin tuna and roosterfish.  Jason froze 15 pounds of mahi mahi filets and was lucky enough to get it back to the states in good condition and he had friends over for a fish fry.

Captain Dave Mothershead on the Miss Behavin took a honeymoon couple from Florida out to the 26 rock and caught 3 sail, 3 wahoo, a tuna and a dorado.  A guy couldn’t ask for a better wedding present.

I went fishing with the guys on the Dragin Fly last week and we ran 35 miles offshore and fished out by Cabo Blanco.  It was my buddies birthday and he was a little hung over so we got a late start.  We fished 4 hours and went 3 for 4 on sailfish.  Birthday boy caught a fish, had a few cold beers and took a nap.  

Anglers Dave Toxie and Sabine Roes from the Washington, DC fished with Bill M aboard the Straight Up out of Los Suenos.  The lucky anglers caught a monster roosterfish northwest of the Los Suenos resort.
