Wing Man Sportfishing Charters

Los Sueños
Herradura PU, Costa Rica

Captain Carlos Arguedas has been fishing out of Herradura bay and Los Suenos marina for the last twenty plus years and is known for his confidence and success in near shore as well as offshore fishing. The combination of his expertise and our set up for fishing aboard the Wing Man has lead anglers of all levels of experience to amazing results for BOTH near and offshore fishing styles.

Capt. Carlos consistently produces days unmatched by other boats for near shore and has produced many 30, and a few 40 plus Sailfish release days. The most remarkable was 41 sail releases with just Capt. Carlos, his mate and Angler Ross Darling form Virginia. Those are impressive numbers for 6 anglers and two crew let alone just the three guys! #2 would be 46 Sail releases With Capt. Alan DeSilva and the boys from Bermuda who were practicing for the Offshore World Championship on Wing Man. My personal favorite part of having Carlos as Captain on Wing Man is he truly cares about YOUR DAY and every other group’s day.

He loves kids and they seem to be very receptive to his style. Carlos is just fun to fish with. We provide all food and drinks like coke, diet coke, tropical tea, bottled water and always have lots of cold Imperial brand beers. We can take up to 4 adults. If you are planning on a family trip with kids and that brings the total number above 4 contact us and we can discuss that. We can normally accommodate you in those situations. We tend to customize trips for our people more than average.

The Wing Man is American owned and it is insured by a United States-based insurance company. We have all the safety equipment needed to ensure for a safe passage. We have global positioning devices Gpirb and On Spot for redundancy and can locate the boat to 30ft of its true position.
