Description

The Dream Raiser is a 35’ vessel with a maximum passenger capacity of 6 persons per outing. The boat features a bathroom on board and sports a range of navigational gear, including GPS, radio and Fishfinder. It is owned by captain Mel Erickson, a seasoned fisherman who has been running fishing trips in both Costa Rica and Alaska for years.

The Dream Raiser team specializes in both big game, bottom and light tackle fishing. Fly fishing is also an option, although the group should go ahead and bring their own fly fishing gear if that’s their preferred fishing technique. Conventional rods and reels, as well as live bait and all the necessary lures are included in the fishing package, as is the cleaning and filleting of the daily catch.

The boat is located at, and departures from the Los Suenos marina. The waters surrounding Jaco and Heradura have been known to be productive virtually all year round, with double digit catches of trophy pelagics being common in many instances. Dream Raiser is usually targeting Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Tuna, Roosterfish, Tarpon and a variety of other species Costa Rica is known for.

Captain Mel can also arrange for a complete vacation package for his guests, organizing luxury accommodation with their fishing trips. Snacks and beverages (water and soft drinks) are included in the trip’s price.
