Sport Fishing El Gato III specializes in private and personalized fishing trips on Isla Tortuga and Playa Blanca. Operating off the beautiful coast of Herradura, Costa Rica, Captain Luis Sandi will do everything possible for you to have a productive and fun fishing trip!
His vessel is a 26’ custom-built center console that can accommodate up to 4 guests. The boat had a full makeover in 2019 and features the latest Garmin navigational technology and safety gear (including 6 adult and 2 kid size life jackets). The boat also comes with a reliable Suzuki engine, a private restroom, a live bait tank, and 2 ice boxes – one for the catch, and one for food and drinks.
Capt. Luis will take you exploring the best nearshore, offshore, and reef spots in pursuit of the biggest A-listers in the area. Depending on the bite, you could be reeling in the likes of Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Roosterfish, Amberjack, Snapper, and more!
You’ll be provided with top-quality Shimano gear and Ballyhoo lures. The captain’s equipment consists of 4 heavy tackle, 3 bottom fishing, and 5 trolling rods. If you’d like to use live bait, you can purchase some for an additional cost at the beginning of your trip.
The charter will also cover soda, water, ice tea, beer, fruit, and snacks, and on full day trips, you’ll be provided with sandwiches as well. At the end of the day, the crew will clean your catch so you can take it home to enjoy a delicious meal with the family. Fishing licenses are not required for this area, so just arrive on time ready to fish and the rest will be taken care of.
Please note, kids ages 3 and older are also welcome to join in on the fun. As long as they are accompanied by a responsible parent or guardian, Capt. Luis is more than happy to have them aboard.
