Costa Rica Good Fishing Inshore in Quepos
From start to finish, my second visit to use Quepos Sailfishing Charters
for my charters and hotel booking was executed flawlessly and I could not
be more pleased, especially considering the last minute nature of planning
the trip. Sam was an absolute blast to have around during my visit, and he
was one of the highlights of the trip, for sure! On the first day of
fishing, Sam joined me on the Flyatcher for a full day of inshore for
Roosters. Captain Nano and his mate got us hooked up on 5 fish, and we
landed two Roosters. It was great having both the mate and Sam give tips
and pointers to reel in my very first and second Roosters, as it required
more finesse than what I am used to offshore. All three of the guys were
On the second day of inshore fishing with the Flycatcher, a half day, we
had many bites and landed 2 Jack Crevalles and it was a ton of fun to reel
them in! The mate and I also casted the popper from time to time and both
of us got very excited when we spotted a school of Jacks materialize out
of nowhere agressively pursuing the popper, that was an awesome sight!
Just before wrapping up the day I had a big bite on the rod that I was
freelining and set the hook into what we think was a decent sized snapper
and thought we had a shot at a fish dinner, but that bad boy took off for
the rocks about 10 minutes into the fight and managed to hide in a cave
somewhere and we broke the line clean. Great experience! Nano and the
mate were true professionals and I really enjoyed being out on thier boat.
Can't wait to get back down again, and looking for a way to get back
during the peak Sailfish season. Hope to see you soon!
