Wing Man Sportfishing Charters

Los Sueños
Herradura PU, Costa Rica

Wing Man Sportfishing Charters is run and operated by Captain Carlos Arguedas. An avid angler. He has been fishing the beautiful waters of Herradura Bay for 2 decades. His confidence and success in nearshore and offshore fishing has gained him an excellent reputation.

Capt. Carlos operates out of Los Suenos Marina. He combines the expertise and a great set up for fishing aboard his 30’ ’Wing Man’ to ensure all breeds of anglers make outstanding catches possible.

One of the crew’s most remarkable catch-and-release fishing trips consisted of 41 Sailfish being put back to the water. As well as that, Capt. Carlos caught and released 46 Sailfish when fishing with Capt. Alan DeSilva and anglers from Bermuda who were practicing for the Offshore Wold Championship on board the Wing Man.

Capt. Carlos truly cares about his guests’ day on the boat. He keeps the Wing Man in excellent condition and always works hard to put everyone on fish. The Wing Man comes powered by twin 300 HP Cummins engines and has enough room for up to 4 anglers. She is fully outfitted with everything you need for a productive day on the water.

All gear, tackle, soft drinks, tea, and water, along with beer will be provided for your party. Your potential catch will include anything from Cubera Snapper and Marlin to Roosterfish and Tuna.

All trips are customizable and family-friendly so kids are especially welcome to join in the adventure. Younger anglers are very receptive to the captain’s style!
