Aguja Sport Fishing

If you’re looking for a great and affordable fishing experience in Jaco, Costa Rica, then look no further than Aguja Sport Fishing. Discover the riches on offer just a stone’s throw from shore in the Pacific, as you go after some huge and delicious fish.

Who better to show you these waters than a local guide? Captain Alejandro is just that guy. After spending some time in the US where he learned his impeccable English, he returned home to fish his native waters. A passionate fisherman, he promises to take you to the best spots, showing you the best that Jaco has to offer.

The 23’ Liston center console is perfect for fishing. Boasting plenty of space for up to 6 guests, you’ll have the benefit of 360 degree views throughout. Take cover under the shade, or lay out in the sun and catch the rays – everything is possible. Capt. Alejandro and his first mate will provide plenty of snacks and drinks, so settle in for a smooth ride out to sea.

Using the latest rods and reels, you’ll try your hand at bottom fishing the reefs, while also trolling the open waters. Start your day by catching your own bait, before heading out and witnessing first-hand the thrilling fishing opportunities on offer in Costa Rica.

Fishing here is no mean feat. Despite some monster fish coming right up close to shore, you’ll need to use all your strength to hook ‘em aboard. Get ready for some rod-bending action as you go up against Snappers, Groupers, Jacks, Barracuda, and even such beauties as Tuna and Sailfish. Try to fill the boat with these delicious creatures and head back to shore with a treat ahead of you.

Let your captain know how far offshore you’d like to go, and he’ll try his best to accommodate your wishes. At the end of the day, the first mate will even clean and fillet your catch for you, so you should bring a tip as a token of thanks. Everything else you need will be waiting for you on board. Let Aguja Sport Fishing take you on the trip of a lifetime to the Pacific!

    The beauty of fishing out of Jaco is that you don't need to go far for some monster fish. Out of Hermosa and Herradura, you'll discover rich waters just a stone's throw from shore. Head to the Pacific first thing in the morning to take advantage of the cooler water and go after some prized fish. Using live bait, or casting lures like poppers and plugs, you'll go after species like Roosterfish, Jacks, Mackerel, Snapper, Mahi Mahi, and Grouper. Expect an intense battle to get 'em all aboard.
