Bahia Rica Adventures can be easily described in 2 words – Roosterfish specialists! They are located on the Eastern side of the Nicoya Peninsula, which is a prime Roosterfish area. Captain Thomas Jones is so sure of his and the crew’s experience, that he guarantees you will catch Roosterfish between May 1 and November 21, or your full day trip is free!
This voracious and aggressive predator can reach the size of 100 pounds. The captain usually catches 50–70 lb fish on a fairly regular basis but the average fish is around 25 pounds.
Roosterfish is not the only target, of course, and you can catch an array of other species, such as Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Jack Crevalle, Needlefish, or Cubera Snapper. The captain has the equipment for serious popping and jigging, which is really fun, even though it can be hard. If you want to try fly fishing, please bring your own equipment.
Your adventure starts on a 25’ fishing machine. This Super Panga center console accommodates up to 4 guests and there’s enough room for everyone to fish in comfort. She can reach the fishing spots very fast, as she’s powered by a 150 HP Mercury engine. The boats also features a private toilet, a tower, and lots of shaded area.
Capt. Thomas will provide your fishing equipment, lures, and live bait. The trip price also includes drinks, snacks, and lunch, whether you booked a half day or a full day. Fishing licenses can be bought online.

The fishing is on as this is some of the best time to enjoy inshore fishing in Costa Rica. We got a big roosterfish and had great action from jacks and skipjack tuna on jigs and topwater. Read Full Report →
