August 10, 2010 – swordfish in Costa Rica


The owner of the 60 ft in Los Suenos called me today and said they are going to start doing a special swordfish trip. You will leave in the morning…run 25 miles out then troll another 30 or so miles fishing for sails, marlin, tuna, mahi and wahoo along the way. At night they’ll fish for swordfish and what ever else bumps in the night. The next morning you will start trolling back towards Los Suenos fishing until you get about 25 miles out and then they will run in. So it’s really like 3 full days of fishing for the price of two…fishing in waters that are lightly fished by private guys and never fished by charter boats. The price is $6500 and includes food, drinks, snacks, bait. The boat is normally $3200 for 9 hour day offshore.

This is fishing in luxury…last fall I watched Texas and Oklahoma play college football on direct tv while we were 30 miles offshore on this boat catching yellowfin tuna, sailfish and mahi mahi. The AC was so cold I needed a blanket as I napped on the leather couches. There maybe nothing better than college football and fishing offshore…spoiled.

They are going on a exploratory trip and said I may get an invite.
