Pelagic Pursuits Costa Rica—Go Fish

Los Suenos Marina
Herradura PU, Costa Rica

Pelagic Pursuits Costa Rica offers exactly what the name implies - awesome fishing trips targeting big game pelagic species such as Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. Pelagic Pursuits also offers other water-based activities, from island hopping to inshore fishing and snorkeling. All aboard a clean, modern boat with an experienced captain and crew.

You will be spending the day aboard the “Go Fish”, a 31’ Luhrs sportfisherman with room aboard for up to five guests. Built in 2000, this iconic vessel provides a stable and comfortable ride and tons of deck space, allowing for multiple hookups offshore.

The Go Fish is equipped with outriggers and downriggers to get you fishing for the widest range of species and tournament-grade tackle to make sure you can hold your own against whatever the ocean can throw at you. You will be provided with a range of lifelike lures and will also have the option to purchase live bait for your trip.

With the ability to fish both inshore and offshore, the boat is loaded with tackle for a wide range of techniques and weight classes. Choose between light and heavy tackle, with the option to troll, bottom fish, spin, jig, pop, and even bring along your fly fishing gear if that is more your style.

Whatever you do on your trip, Captain Randall will make sure you have a great time doing it. With many years of local experience and a lifetime on the water, Captain Randall has the credentials for some real record catches, and the friendly, adaptable attitude of someone who really loves what they do.

A great boat, an experienced crew, and some of the best fishing grounds on the planet - what more could you ask for? Trips come with all the equipment you will need, and the crew will even clean and fillet your catch for you at the end of the trip, ready to take home and enjoy.

I have been fishing professionally in Costa Rica for over 16 years. I grew up fishing in Guanacaste on the Northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica, but Los Sueños has been my home port for the past 10 years due to its fishing diversity and consistency of fishing quality. Captain of the Go Fish since June 2015, I have a wealth of knowledge and extensive experience of both inshore and offshore fishing on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

We did not catch the targeted fish (Rooster fish) which is fine we understand fishing. The guides were very organized and put us on Bonita and yellow fin tuna. The only thing upsetting was the crew acted as though “our” catch was “their” catch. We were going to share the fish with them but were handed a bag with probably 1/5 of our catch. It should have been our option who we gave our fish to.

Captain and mate were competent and nice.  We caught two sail fish in about three hours of fishing.
Reasonably priced
