WetAss II Sportfishing offers charters targeting anything from Roosterfish to Marlin in the warm Pacific waters around Playa Flamingo. On half day trips you fish for hard-fighters like Roosterfish and Jacks, and bag plenty of tasty table fish too. Full day trips will let you travel as far as 30 miles and target a real who’s who of big game pelagics. Blue, Black, and White Marlin top the list, closely followed by Sailfish, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and more.
The WetAss II is perfectly at home wherever you are fishing. Freshly restored at the end of 2017, this 31’ Bertram sportfishing boat can carry groups of five in comfort and style. She will also carry you at speed, thanks to her twin 350HP Caterpillar engines. The vessel has tons of space above and below deck and has an enclosed head for extra comfort and convenience on longer trips.
But this is more than just a pleasure cruise! The WetAss II comes ready for battle against even the biggest of big game pelagics. Her outriggers and downriggers will maximize your spread and a choice of live ballyhoo fresh from the tank or a selection of quality lures will make sure nothing can resist your hooks. There are also tuna tubes on board for those looking to work their way up the food chain
Once you do set your hook, you can trust in the boat’s tournament-grade tackle from Shimano and Penn International to give you the best chance of bringing in your fish. If it is a real monster, the vessel’s fighting chair will let you hold your own in the long battle to get it to the boat.
You truly could not ask for a better boat, and she has a crew to match. Captain Glen Cortes has spent his whole life fishing the waters around Playa Flamingo, and first mate Oscar has been training for over 15 years to get where he is today. This all comes together with little luxuries like drinks, snacks, lunch (on six & eight-hour trips) and cleaning and filleting of all your catch to make what is, quite simply, the trip of a lifetime.

So I will start off by saying that we had a 6 and 9 year old that had never been deep sea fishing. I was nervous at first as a mom…......no need to be the crew was amazing with them! Glenn, our Captain let the boys come up and sit in his chair. Willy and Manuel took special care when my new little anglers took the fighter chair. I cannot say enough how impressed we were with the men! It also didn’t hurt that 5 minutes in to the trip we started catching fish! If I was giving 1 out of 5 stars…......they would get a 6! Oh and they even picked us up and dropped us off at our house!

I love to fish and done it so many times in USA, Mexico and the Caribbean. I was reasearching about fishing in Costar Rica and realized how great fishing is there. We had really good communication with Vicky and Capt. Glen before the trip and booked a full day charter.
We’ve been offered by them to pick us up, but we had a vehicle so we met them at the Playa Flamingo. Captain Glen and mate Oscar were waiting for us on time and the boat was there as well. Everything prepared on time. Boat is top notch!
We went out about 15 miles and then throw the lines. About half an hour after we departured, first sailfish was on board. It was 9.5 ft sailfish, really nice one. Around 9:30 we already had 3 sailfish on board. After that caught a 20 lbs Mahi and another Sailfish was hooked.
The swells became bigger so we decided to get inland, but that caused a bit less fight. To make things more interesting, we were lucky enough to catch the biggest Mahi I ever seen in my life! That was the best fight of a day and definitely made this trip memorable.
Oh, what a day with Wetass II crew! These guys really know what they’re doing.
I look forward to fishing with you guys again! Highly recommend!
