Bushwacker Sportfishing

Playa Potrero Grande
Playa Flamingo GU, Costa Rica

After globetrotting and fishing all over the world since 1981, Captain Skeet Warren decided to buy his own boat and settle down in Costa Rica. He considers Costa Rica one of the best places overall to enjoy a great day of bluewater angling, an opinion formed by his solid, worldwide experience and many years of travel. The year-round warm climate, calm seas, and the abundance of fish combine with Costa Rica’s stable economy to make this an easy first choice for anglers and adventurers. The friendliness of the people, the general atmosphere of resource conservation, and the safety of the country all contribute to an unparalleled offshore experience.

Skeet has captained many boats in his 30+ years, and he’s long considered the 42’ Bertram one of the best overall for fishing. Its fast, dry ride gets out to the fish faster and more comfortably. With air conditioning to escape the heat, the Bertram’s agility and large cockpit accommodate the anglers. Combine this environment with state-of-the-art electronics, full safety equipment, all new Shimano reels with custom rods, and a very experienced crew, and you’re sure to have a great day on the water.

Take advantage of Captain Skeet’s many years of experience and come fish with him on his 42’ Bertram “Bushwacker.” Whether you’re a hard-core angler or a curious beginner, you’ll have the knowledge and resources of an excellent fisherman. He’s a veteran of the seas, and he’s sure to give you 110%.

I have captained boats all over the world before deciding to buy my own boat and settle down in Costa Rica. The year-round warm climate, calm seas, and abundance of fish, make it the perfect location for saltwater fishing.

This was my first trip out of the country and was amazed from the beginning till the end! During our full day trip, my crew and I were treated so well. Captain Skeet is a natural at knowing where to go for the big catches!
This was my first fishing trip and to say that I was thrilled is an understatement. Our expectations were not so high because we were all informed about fishing there in June - the fishing was slow and were advised that we could reschedule if we wanted.
The crew was attentive and as helpful as could be! We were offered snacks, drinks and even the lunch was outstanding! I was impressed with the knowledge and the way they all worked as a well oiled machine together! Thanks for the experience!
