March 2017 – Costa Rica Fishing Report

costa rica fishing report Costa Rica Fishing Report by Fishing Director Todd Staley – They told me it had been 170 some years since the last hurricane hit Costa Rica but strange things sure have happened since we got hit last November and it is not good for my mental health.

There are lots of sailfish out there. People report seeing fish on the surface and free-jumpers everywhere. One day they come out to play and the boats see double digit numbers in the teasers and the next day they don’t want to play. Marlin have hung around longer this year. Lisa from “Luxury Tours” and her husband Bill started their group’s trip with a nice blue. A few tuna and a wayward dorado have made their way to the kitchen. Inshore remains the constant.

“Thank you for the video!! It made me cry and was icing on the cake. The idea of bringing our friends to CBR was to make memories, and we did. The entire staff was incredible especially Olimpia. She held me up when I really needed it. You guys just can’t know how great you are, not just as a vacation spot, but as caring people who have etched a spot into my heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you…” – Donna Piraino
