Go Fish Costa Rica – 26'

If you want to explore the fish-rich waters of Costa Rica, join Go Fish and have a memorable adventure! Fish love this terrain, and once you hit the waves, you’ll see a variety of species. Captain Jose is a great young captain from a line of fisherman, and he’ll make sure your trip is as productive as possible.

Come out and enjoy your time on a 26’ Mako center console boat, restored in 2015. It can take up to four people, so it’s an ideal vessel for a day out with a few friends. Whether you decide to go offshore or stay closer to the coastline, the boat has navigational equipment to put you on the fish.

Capt. Jose will supply you with all the fishing equipment, and you’ll be fishing using live bait. If you’re interested in the taste of your catch, the crew will be happy to clean it for you so you can have a nice dinner upon your return. To honor their efforts, please do remember to include gratuities.

You can target Tuna, Grouper, Roosterfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, or some of the Billfish. To land them, use heavy or light tackle, do bottom fishing or trolling. If you’re up for fly fishing, you’ll be provided with the gear, just let your captain know in advance. There is a lot going on around Costa Rica waters, so why not come along?

Kids are welcome, so feel free to bring them on an exciting family trip, just bring some life jackets for them. The crew will have snacks and drinks for your refreshment, but make sure to bring sunscreen so you can relax.

Stop planning and join Go Fish for an amazing experience in the beautiful waters of Costa Rica!

I started guiding at age 19, and for 40 years have operated boats from Alaska to Panama. I love my work as it really has never been a job. I get to go fishing everyday. Please come and join me to share some of the knowledge I have acquired over the years.
