Sportfishing on the Predator

Marina Los Sueños Resort
Jacó PU, Costa Rica

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.

One of the best experiences I’ve had fishing. We ended up catching two blue Sailfish and a huge Blue Marlin. The captain and mate were so professional and yet so fun. It was a great bonding experience before my wedding.

The captain and mate on the Predator are top notch. We caught nine foot sailfish and a 11.66 foot 400 pound blue marlin. The marlin was a strong, noble fighter and battled for over an hour.  We could not have brought him to the boat without the combined skill of the captain and mate.  I highly recommend the Predator to any serious sport fisherman.

The boat was slow. We ran north of Los Suenos to make bait which took longer than it should’ve because their gear kept malfunctioning. Then ran south to fish - we left the dock at 7am and didn’t actually start fishing till 10am and had to quit at noon due to being a half day trip. We spent a week in Los Suenos and fished on other boats and noticed this boat does not get chartered very often and I can see why after our experience

Mister Stephens, let me clear you something that you don’t know.
- First you can’t go really fast when you go inshore fishing you going in shallow water.
- catch the live bait is part of your “half day” of fishing.
- you talking about gear, we have 3 more spinning road on board I don’t see any problems if one off.
- your “half day” fishing was great you catching 2 beautiful ROOSTERFISH, 25 pounds and 15 pounds and two big needle fish. Is my answer about you say you talk with the others guys about we don’t catch many fish.
- Your wife and daughter look happy in this pictures.
- A real fisherman know what iam talking about, iam sorry if you don’t know.  Many fisherman wish a “half day” fishing like you have it.
Your review don’t affect ours reputation.
