Allin Sportfishing - 28’ Mako

Playa Herradura
Jacó PU, Costa Rica

Allin Sportfishing operates out of Playa Herradura, offering half and full day trips target the area’s top table and game species. Spend the morning fishing for Jacks, Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, and more, or book in for a full day offshore, targeting Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, and Yellowfin Tuna.

The waters around Playa Herradura are famous among offshore anglers for their huge billfish, matched only by the short travel times to get to them. Captain Henry has been running charters in the area for almost a decade, giving him the knowledge and the skills to get you on the best catches the area has to offer.

You will be spending the day fishing aboard the “Allin”, a 28’ Mako with room aboard for up to 5 guests. Completely restored in October of 2016, the vessel can now cruise at 22 knots to get you to the best fishing grounds, and features plenty of tech and equipment to get you reeling in some awesome catches once you are there.

The Allin is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to sound out the deep and lock onto the best fishing spots, outriggers and downriggers to reach the fish wherever they are, and a fighting chair to help bring them in. There is also a livewell bursting with bait to make sure nothing can resist your hooks.

All trips come with tackle, bait, lures, and drinks. All you need is a license and a big cooler, because you are going after some seriously big and seriously tasty fish!

Even though what I was initially looking for was a marlin, we had an excellent day of fishing, 10 mahi-mahi, of which, the first one escape, another the line broke, we took 6 to eat (perfectly prepared and zip bagged by Will) and two released , we also catch and release 8 black tunas. Jorge the captain, excellent knowledge of the area and Willburg the assistant, also, excellent knowledge and treatment. I will definitely go back for that “UNICORN” at the beginning of January 2018

Overall it was a good day fishing.  We were a bit disappointed that we had a different boat and captain than we booked.  It kind of defeats the purpose of these reviews.  It seemed to be a thing over there as it happened to us twice- we would book a trip with someone we had researched and someone else would take us out.  In both cases, the replacement captain was fine- we caught lots of fish… but no marlin.  I’m not discouraging someone from booking here, but be aware that it may not be who you get.

The captain (Jorge) and deckhand (Will) were fun, professional and efficient.  Actually, Will is the best deckhand I’ve ever seen.  The boat was comfortable and fast.  We were on fish in no time.  Well stocked cooler - the deckhand made fresh sashimi from the yellowfin we caught.  All in all a beautiful day with special treatment.  Saw pods of whales spouting and breaching - magnificent,
