Patience is the key to bagging a really nice fish and no-one does it better than regular guests Jim and Leighanne Nunes. They brought good friends Gary Deems and Ron Harney down with them and introduced them to their first Pacific sail.

The Nunes stayed a couple of days longer and worked the waters offshore without much success until their captain ran across a trash line that held small tuna and dorado. They ended up raising 7 marlin, boating and releasing two, the largest going  400 lbs. A very wise and accomplished fisherman once told me, “your chances of catching a really good fish are directly related to how much you deserve it.” Jim must really deserve it because he bags a marlin nearly every time he comes to the resort.

Costa Rica Marlin Fishing

Thomas and Patrick Hayden were our first father/son visitors for the school break and they also took a nice 350 lb blue marlin. Bill and William La Fuze were the first to take advantage of our “Dad’s and Grad’s” special and started inshore with a real nice cubera snapper and followed yesterday with a pair of dorado, the largest tipping the scale at 50 lbs.
Another frequent client, Bill DeDeugd and son Daniel, brought another father son team, Jim and Nick Rice who spent their first day catching a mixed bag of bottom fish.


More marlin keep moving in offshore, following the migration of tuna and dorado. It is a hunting game, but there are fish out there to be had. Fishing inshore has been changing day to day, changing from fair to good. Some nice snapper and a few roosterfish are cooperating with anglers
