My wife and I had a wonderful time fishing with Capt Gerald. The rainbow runner is perfect for two people.  The cooler was loaded with cold drinks, fresh fruit, sandwiches and snacks.  Having caught marlin, yellowfin, mahi,  and big eye in the northeast canyons,  I selfishly only wanted to target roosterfish.  We trolled up some skipjacks after a 30 minute run and immediately put them down for baits.  Gerald bumped trolled around structure for a few hours then switched to deep dropping for grouper and snapper.  After loading up on meat, we moved back inside for another shot at the roosters.  After trolling a live skippy for another hour we decided just to head in. As a charter captain myself, if I make it back to that area I would absolutely fish with Gerald again. Thank you my friend!

Jack, thanks for fishing with us. It was a pleasure to meet you in the morning and talk shop about the great differences between your fishing area and ours. Sorry the roosters were being elusive as your target fish, but I’m very glad you had a great day with Capt. Gerald nonetheless. If you plan another visit to Tamarindo in the future, please don’t hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can do to help with your travel plans. Thanks again, Steve.

Captain Gerald was knowledgeable and did a great job leading us to our catches - 2 sail fish! It was a great first time experience for us as novices.  Would have loved it if we had been able to use the glove and hold our own fish, like we see in the pics…but overall it was exciting to reel them in.  Had to wait until past 7 am to get out, and came back 30 min early, but nothing was biting and it was getting a bit choppy.  Thanks for a great experience
