On the Pacific coast of Costa Rica since the 1970’s, Randy Wilson pioneered the sportfishing in this area with Tamarindo Sportfishing. Located close to the deep water, Tamarindo is the perfect base of operation. Spectacular year-round fishing for Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, Wahoo, and assorted other inshore species are all accessible with a short run time. Spend your day fishing, not running towards the fish!
The ‘Talking Fish’ is a 38’ Topaz Express and with twin 671 Detroit diesels and lots of comfortable seating in the shade. Bring your music and hook it up to the sound system!
Mates Eithel Rosales and Max Campos are fun and knowledgeable and speak English. Fishing is their passion and they work hard so you’ll have the experience of a lifetime!
All equipment is top of the line with Penn International and Shimano tackle. The crew is happy to accommodate novices and families, as well as experienced anglers.
Conservation of the resource is important for the team, and Randy has developed techniques to make sure the billfish are released unharmed. With edible fish, they are happy to keep your catch filleted and on ice for the day so you can have it cooked at one of Tamarindo’s many superb restaurants. We look forward to taking you fishing!
