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.

Well, we knew we were fishing out of season so kept our expectations reasonable.
Crew constantly worked on bait and lines to make every chance possible.
We hooked two marlin but they not pulled off; we were able to reel in a sail and a mahi.
Boat is clean, well stocked and ready to go when you get there. Lunch was surprisingly good! But it’s the crew that really make he trip suck a joy…view doesn’t hurt!

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.
