Chaser Sportfishing, Sportsman

Chaser Sportfishing invites you for a day of fishing in the beautiful waters near Playa Herradura in Costa Rica. Captain Brent Moyer has almost three decades-worth of experience fishing in the Pacific. He knows these waters like the back of his hand and will do his best to make sure your stay here is unforgettable.

You’ll be fishing from his 46’ Omie Tillet Sportsman that’s powered by a single 800 HP Caterpillar engine. She’s quite a spacious vessel, boasting plenty of room to host up to 8 anglers in comfort. And what comfort it is! With an air-conditioned interior, fully-stocked galley, private head, and more, you can look forward to a most pleasant time on the big blue.

Fishing out of Herradura Bay is an absolute treat for any sportfishing-oriented angler. From Black, Blue, and Striped Marlin, to Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Snapper and more, it’s a buyer’s market out there. If you’re a Billfish fanatic, you’re sure to appreciate the boat having LP 1200 electric dual dredge reels. The deckhands will use these to lure the feisty fish in and hopefully nab some big ones.

The crew is well-acquainted with the tournament scene in Costa Rica and will be happy to help you if you’re hoping to compete. The price of any given trip includes high-quality rods, reels, and tackle to help you make the best of your day out. If your wish is to catch some Billfish, come on down and hop on board!
