We went out from Riu Guanacaste resort for an offshore fishing charter on board the Tuna Fish boat. Captain Misael took them to north  of the Gulf of papagayo looking for our best fishing grounds, after 45 min running we use some bonito live bait to try catch some roosterfish. Captain Misael always know whats he’s doing, after some hours a huge 60lbs rooterfish hooked up. It was our clients first roosterfish on their entire lives, were so happy with it!! At the end of the day we caught 1 shark, 3 bonitos, 3 jack crevalle, 1 needlefish and roosterfish. This is a reason why you have to book a charter with us. Contact Capt.
