Crocodile Sportfishing

Crocodile Sportfishing is the right choice when you want to catch the fish of your dreams. Join Captian Chichi and target monster pelagic species all day long. Your guide is a pro when it comes to offshore fishing and has a successful career in Quepos. Capt. Chichi has won many fishing tournaments, including both offshore and inshore.

You’ll be fishing on a 27’ boat, named Cocodrilo XVII. This Mako center console was custom built and restored in 2019. She features enough space for 6 anglers to fish in comfort. The boat is powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine and reaches the speed of 25 knots. Besides navigational electronics, the boat also has a private toilet, a livewell full of fresh bait for inshore fishing, and Tuna tubes for anglers with bigger fish to fry.

During the summer months, it’s great to start an inshore trip. This is where you get to target Cubera Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Roosterfish, and other tasty species. But if you’re ready for something more challenging, take an offshore trip and target big game species, such as Black, Blue, and Striped Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, and Tuna.

You can choose between light and heavy tackle, depending on your targets. All fishing equipment you’ll need for the day is included in the price. Fly anglers are also welcome to bring their favorite fly fishing gear. Your snacks and drinks are also covered.

Some days I have the pleasure of taking people out to the ocean for their first time ever. Those trips have been some of the most memorable. I fish with anglers of all skill sets, and often times our goal is catching a personal best, Sailfish, Dorado, Marlin, and other big game fish, as well as inshore species such as Roosterfish and Snook.
