Straight Up with a Twist
One of our top picks in Jaco. Straight Up with a Twist is a newly-refitted and customized 31’ Bertram, powered by twin 350hp Caterpillar diesel engines. The vessel has an air-conditioned cabin with a full galley, as well as a large cockpit with a single fighting chair.
The boat is outfitted with a stereo system and a variety of marine electronics, including GPS, fish finder and radio. There’s also a blue water fighting chair on board in a spacious cockpit. For fishing, the crew uses tackle by Penn International, Fin Nor and Shimano.
Straight Up’s bilingual crew is committed to putting you on fish in both style and comfort, and wants to make sure you have the most enjoyable and exciting trip possible. Captains Memo and Erick are both seasoned Costa Rica fishermen with years of experience fishing the Jaco waterways.
The Straight Up team offers its guests full day fishing trips, be it inshore, offshore fishing, or both. On offshore trips, the crew will take you to the productive fishing grounds abundant with Sailfish, Blue and Black Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo and more, depending on the season. For those preferring inshore fishing, there’s a variety of light tackle species you can target as well, particularly popular being the Roosterfish. Inshore fishing trips generally last for half a day.
The crew is also happy to arrange additional activities during your trip, including a visit to the Tortuga island (about 1 hour away), or incorporate snorkeling in your package as well. All bait and tackle are provided by the Straight Up team, as well as snacks, drinks and a complimentary cleaning and fileting of the day’s catch.

Outstanding trip! I caught and released 4 beautiful bill fish! The boat is very nice and the captain and crew very friendly and helpful.
I’d highly recommend Straight Up with a Twist to anyone interested in fishing out of Jaco/Los Suenos, Costa Rica.

Ramon (sp) and Marcus were absolutely the very best. We could not have had any better service or client care. We would give them the very best rating possible and will certainly recommended them to our friends that are planning on coming to Costa Rica some time within the the next year. Thank you FishingBooker very much for all of your assistance for this trip also.
Some very satisfied customers.
Rick Adkins and Family.

We had a great time fishing on this legendary and beautifully restored 31’ Bertram. Captain and crew are top notch. They have great tackle and they will switch out baits if they aren’t working or get washed out. I’ve fished on plenty of boats and these guys know what they’re doing and they fish hard. I strongly recommend this boat to anyone who wants to catch fish.
