Fishin Off Charters

Known as a popular tourist destination, Herradura, Costa Rica is also popular among hardcore anglers. The name Herradura refers to the horseshoe shape of the bay, and fishing these bountiful waters with Fishin Off Charters is bound to be lucky!

Come fish with them on their comfortable 29’ Luhrs tournament flybridge boat. It’s powered by twin 240 HP Yanmar 4LHA-STP Turbo Diesel engines and comes with a restroom, a kitchen, beds, outriggers, tuna tubes, a livewell, and ice-boxes. You’ll find the best navigational and safety gear on board, as well. This fishing machine can carry up to 8 passengers.

Their experienced captain, Juan Carlos, speaks perfect English and will bring you to the most productive fishing grounds to catch your desired fish, be it Tuna, Wahoo, Roosterfish, or others. This can include offshore fishing for Mahi Mahi that you can bring home for dinner, (filleting included) or catch and release fishing for species such as Striped Marlin and Sailfish. You can also do bottom fishing or a combination of both deep sea and bottom fishing. Inshore fishing is also an option.

Fishing gear on board is mostly Shimano and is included in the price, along with lures. Frozen ballyhoo is provided as well, along with licenses. Soft drinks, beer, sandwiches, an experienced mate, and hotel pick ups and drop offs in the Jaco area are also included.

To Fishin Off Charters, it’s all about you and your wishes, so you can expect to have a fantastic fishing trip perfectly tailored to your needs.

I always loved the ocean and have been running boats my whole life. For over 5 years, I have been running charters in beautiful Costa Rica and I know how to entertain my guests. You'll be fishing with Captain Juan Carlos, who has been fishing for more than 16 years and used to manage a 60' boat and everyone and everything on it. He is also bilingual and speaks English quite well. It will be our pleasure to have you aboard the Fishin Off.
