I Got You Sport Fishing

When you want to experience spectacular fishing and Costa Rican hospitality in all its light, I Got You Sport Fishing is the charter company to turn to! Bountiful waters to explore, plenty of fish to catch, and rich local culture are more than enough to fall in love with Quepos and keep coming back to it time after time.

Your friendly guide, Captain Jessie Ponce, has been casting his lines in the area as soon as he could hold a rod, and he has more than 20 years of expertise to offer to his anglers.

He will take you out to the best fishing spots on his 21’ center console, comfortable enough to seat up to 4 people. The vessel is stable and efficient, thanks to its 70 HP Suzuki engine, so everyone on board can fish freely at the same time.

Inshore fishing is your captain’s specialty, and it’s hardly a surprise – Quepos is known for its excellent year-round inshore fishing. All the favorite species are on your to-catch list, including Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle, King Mackerel, Mangrove Snapper, and much more. If you head out a bit further, you will be on the hot trail of delicious Mahi Mahi, and the best time to chase these gorgeous fish is in November.

You don’t need to worry about quality fishing equipment, snacks, or drinks, Capt. Jessie will provide everything. It’s up to you to pack sunscreen, long-sleeved shirts, and hats to be protected from the unyielding sun. Your guide is all about fishing responsibly, and while you can keep the fish you intend to eat, the rest of the catch will be released.

With I Got You Sport Fishing, you get to enjoy an exciting fishing expedition and experience firsthand the famous Costa Rican culture and spirit. It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro angler or a beginner, Capt. Jessie will make sure your time on the water with him is unforgettable!
