Sportfishing on the Predator

Marina Los Sueños Resort
Jacó PU, Costa Rica

The Predator is located at the world famous Los Sueños Marina, Herradura, Costa Rica.
It the best boat of its size and price range in the area.

The boat has recently been totally restored, and features new engines and tackle. The excellent, experienced crew is bilingual in English and Spanish, so you will not have communication problems.

You will be able to enjoy the amazing fishing accessible from Herradura Bay, having the opportunity to target the area’s unique and exotic Roosterfish inshore and then travelling further out to target Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and even the area’s most sought after game fish, the Blue Marlin. If this isn’t enough, you can also try bottom fishing for tasty Snappers, Groupers, and anything else you might find deep under the sea.

With snacks and drinks included on board, this is the place to come to enjoy an all inclusive sport fishing vacation in the sun!

Tough day for me and my sweetheart on the Predator. It was slow slow slow. We trolled around for most of the morning with no fish. Then Capt. Javier suggested head out 10 more miles and try for Yellowfin tuna. We each landed a tuna! Each 30# & 60# respectfully! I had the bigger of the two. Very attentube mate & Capt.

The crew was great! We wanted to catch some fish for dinner so they took us bottom fishing first. We caught 6 nice groupers, tilefish, and some scorpion fish. Tried for a black marlin got a bite but no hook up.. finished the day with a double header on sails. Landed both of them! Overall a good day and a good experience for the money.
