Description

At Samara Local Fishing, angling is more than just a sport - it’s a way of life. Join Captain Frank, a professional and passionate local fisherman, on a Costa Rican fishing experience to remember. With trips running all year round and for all types of angler, they are sure to have a fishing package to suit your individual needs.

Captain Frank’s boat is a Boston Whaler that was first launched by Samara Local Fishing in November 2015. Immaculately presented and loaded with top quality gear, the vessel is a comfortable and effective platform for groups of up to five people to fish off. It features Garmin electronics for navigation and safety, and has plenty of comfortable seating as well as a shade canopy to ensure that everyone on board can enjoy their experience to the full.

Samara Local Fishing offer both full- and half-day trips, and they give you the option of fishing either inshore or offshore. When fishing inshore, you can expect to practice your fishing skills by jigging, popping, bottom fishing, and trolling for species such as Mahi Mahi, Cubera Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, Black and Yellow Fin Tuna, Wahoo, and more. When fishing offshore, you will mostly be trolling, and will be able to try the effective ‘bait and switch’ technique for thrilling big game fishing for Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna, and Wahoo.

Drinks and snacks are included in the price of all trips, and the charter company also offers a pick-up service for guests who are staying in the local area.

The boat and equipment were all in good shape.  The morning started off slow trolling and casting, but then we went out a bit further to bottom fish and between the 3 of us we caught more than 14 snapper.  I was hopeful we would have caught a little more variety of fish, but what we did catch made for an awesome fish fry for family and friends that evening!
