Megacatch has some of the best fishermen in the area who know the best fishing spots in Papagayo Gulf. They are at your service year-round, so anytime you decide to go fishing, they will be ready! Your adventure starts at Playa Del Coco, but get in touch if you need a pick up from another place.

The crew welcomes you to their 29’ Fiberglass boat. She can accommodate up to 6 guests, where 4 of you can fish at the same time. The boat has a private toilet, flybridge, a fighting chair, a live bait tank, and lots of other features that will make your ride more comfortable and your fishing successful.

Depending on which trip you choose, you can target Marlin, Sailfish, Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, or Tuna. These species are very fast and hard-fighting, so you’ll definitely experience great rod-bending action if you encounter them. For those interested in something calmer, target Groupers and other species closer to the shore.

Some species, such as Roosterfish, have to be released. The ones you can keep will be cleaned and filleted for you after the trip.

The crew will cover your fishing equipment, lures, baits, and also your drinks and snacks for the day. Longer trips will usually have a wider range of beverages and food prepared. Shorter trips are family-friendly and kids need to be at least 5 years old.

If you’re ready for an active, unique, and exciting day on the water, Megacatch invites you to join them!

"I've spent all my life living in the ocean or near it, surfing and fishing are my passions." Captain Miguel has been fishing for 6 years, exploring many places in the country and in Panama. He is from the south, but has been living in Playa del Coco for almost 4 years. He participated in his first local tournament in 2018. He and the first mate speak English and Spanish, so you'll be in safe hands when you embark on an adventure with them!
