First off, Captain Boos was very responsive to emails and easy to keep in contact with. He was waiting at the “marina” when we got there and introduced us to the captain who would be taking us out for the day. The marina is really just a boat ramp, no structure or facilities available so plan according if you are traveling a distance to get there, make any restroom or food stops prior to getting there.
The fishing trip was an overall good experience, our Captain Walter and mate Eduardo were very friendly and we had a good day on the water with them. The bite was very slow (I get it, it’s fishing, no worries) and we trolled for several hours. We finally got a bite and it was a nice sailfish, which was awesome as I’ve never caught one before. We got it in and posed for a quick picture and a safe release of the fish. That was it for the fishing , we caught one small Bonita late in the day while trolling home.
They worked hard to find us fish until the very end, it just didn’t really happen. It wasn’t for lack of effort.
Now the reason for the average review, I specifically request to go rooster fishing, I came to Costa Rica with one goal in mind, CATCH A ROOSTER FISH! I made that very clear but when we got on the boat I was told they couldn’t find bait, that there were no rooster fish around anymore. I’m a fishermen I understand difficulty finding bait. But that was the one thing I wanted to fish for and we didn’t even try. I get trying to put people on fish, however I booked for one specific reason and we didn’t even attempt to make it possible. What was even more frustrating was when we got back to our resort at the end of the day, the people who fished (in the same area we were in most of the day) caught 2 big rooster fish.
Overall experience was a good day on the water, frustrates me that I was very clear with type of fishing and didn’t even try. Just trolled baits all day long.

Hola Dan thank you very much for taking the time on your vacation to leave us the 3 star review our lower review so far

I would take every positive word that your mentioned because the people who is going to read this for some reason the always remember the bad ones so let me a list of the good thinks

1- Captain Boos was very responsive to emails and easy to keep in contact with.
2- The fishing trip was an overall good experience
3- Captain Walter and mate Eduardo were very friendly and we had a good day on the water with them
4-We got a bite and it was a nice sailfish, which was awesome as I’ve never CAUGTH one before
5-They worked hard to find us fish until the very end
6-Overall experience was a good day on the water.

About the Rooster fish I would like to star mention that my crew arrived to the marina at 5 am every day looking for bite, some days are plenty, some days are only a few, some days are nothing, and is that the way the ocean works for us, I been to United States and here in Costa Rica is VERY DEFERENT the way you find the bite we don’t have any body with big tanks or anything even closer

Captain Walter had two options keep trying to find bite all morning and maybe don’t catch anything or go offshore and try at less to give you a nice larger fish. And they found a nice sailfish for you. (Btw Im agree with the call he make)

When you target only one fish the pressure is on, and is no very easy thing to do.

Have a nice day and thank you again for your positive words we are a family that work hard to make everybody happy and is some thing very hard to do

And btw we love your BIG smile on the picture

Pura vida and enjoy your Sunday

Pretty rough storm rolled through the area the evening before and threw some fishing off, but our experience was incredible. I was very satisfied with the communication behind the entire process. Christian Boos reached out to me about the storm and suggested going out before everyone else so we trolled about 2hrs before other charters arrived. If you are wanting to fish the Flamingo area I highly recommend this charter because of the intangible communication. Beautiful area of CR and incredible waters.
