Good Day Team - 36’ Good Day Too

The Good Day Team has been in the charter business for more than 17 years, employing seasoned and experienced crew, intimately familiar with the local fishing grounds. The team takes pride in providing their customers with a local expertise on fishing charters, as well as tours and overall vacation arrangements.

The Good Day Too is a 36’ Hatteras powered by twin engines and with an airconditioned cabin, able to accommodate up to 7 anglers at a time. The boat is outfitted with a GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, tuna tubes, and a fighting chair. There is also an enclosed head for extra comfort on longer trips.

Good Day Too is equipped with a variety of rods and reels, based on whether you’re interested in big game fishing, bottom fishing, fly or light tackle fishing. Lures and live bait are included in the package, as well as a complimentary cleaning and filleting of the catch.

When it comes to conventional tackle, the crew provides Penn International rods and reels, from #10 all the way up to #80. Fly fishing gear consists of #13 Sage rods with Billy Pate reels, as well as a #14 Thomas & Thomas rods, matched with an Orvis reels.

The Good Day Team runs an eco-conscious fishing operation, doing what they can to contribute to preservation and conservation of Costa Rica’s environment. To that end, there’s a ‘Catch and Release’ policy practiced aboard Good Day Too whenever possible.

So whether you want to spend the day battling Marlin and Sailfish offshore, or pulling in tasty food fish and some hard-fighting Roosterfish in shallower water, these guys have the boat and the know-how to get you on that fish of your dreams.

Felipe Fernadez and his team at Good Day Sportfishing have been in the business of providing sportfishing charters for 20 years. They have fished all across the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, in Flamingo, Quepos, and beyond, and have spent many years operating out of Los Suenos. While the team have a strong history of tournament fishing, what they enjoy most of all is providing enjoyable experiences for anglers of all ages and ability levels aboard their charter boat, whether that involves targeting Billfish on the fly or introducing young anglers to the unforgettable sensation of feeling a huge fish on the end of their line.
