New Fishing and Resort Photos

We’ve had a great month here at Crocodile Bay and Botánika… with a full-house of wonderful guests!

The fishing has been consistently good and our eco-tours and adventures have been getting amazing results and reviews with lots of animal sightings and jungle adventures. Here are some pix and video from Crocodile Bay and Botánika this past month…. Starting with two photos of our guest, Richard V. in the Osa Peninsula rainforest taken with the same tree 19 years apart.

Captain’s Corner with Anthony – January 2023

What’s the difference between inshore and offshore fishing? Captian Anthony tells us that at Crocodile Bay; it’s all about the distance away from land, the depth of water we are fishing, the techniques we use and the species we target.

Captain’s Corner with Anthony

This month we catch up with one of our guest’s favorite Captain: Anthony Rhoden. Capt. Anthony is inviting everybody to come down and fish with us: no matter the season. Anthony feels there is a misconception about fishing in the fall. The green season gets a bad wrap because the people perceive that the fishing isn’t as good when it rains. That’s not true. In fact, the fishing is better during the wet season. The captain explains in the video in this post.

Crocodile Bay Resort Opens November 1

On November 1, we start fishing again. I feel like we are getting paroled, and there is nothing like the salt air and a cobalt sea to liberate ones soul. After being prisoners for so many months there will be nothing more exciting than the sound of line racing off the reel when a big fish makes the first run. I so need that adrenalin rush. And what a great time to re-open. The fall marlin season will be in full swing and historically, and the dorado bite will be going on with the yellowfin tuna busting bait shoals offshore. The sails are not here in big numbers yet, but there are some cruising the area and they are usually hungry.

Crocodile Bay Resort Experiences Staggering Numbers of Fish and Wildlife Since COVID

I have always made it a habit, especially when I travel in the ‘third world’, to seek out the oldest person I can find and start up a conversation. I have found that is how I can get the true flavor of an area. One example of this insight was when my boss at the time, many years ago, kept a boat in Havana, Cuba.
