Quepos Inshore
Leanne Batten

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!
