JP Sportfishing Tours - Wild Lady

JP Sportfishing Tours welcomes you down to Quepos, Costa Rica, to enjoy the beautiful waters which have made this town a household name among sport anglers the world over.

Operating in the area since 1993, these guys are one of the most experienced and reliable charter companies in town and are the perfect option for some truly incredible fishing.

The Wild Lady is a 34’ Ocean Master sportfishing boat, beautifully-maintained since the day she was built and rigged to the gills for some serious sportfishing. She has room for up to six anglers and cruises at around 20 knots.

The Wild Lady features GPS and fishfinder to get you on the best catch. She has a livewell to keep your bait fresh and tuna tube for those with bigger fish in mind. Once you’re in position, her outriggers will give you the best spread while her fighting chair lets you take on whatever the ocean throws at you.

Every fish is caught differently and the boat is equipped to catch them all, with light and heavy tackle and the option to troll, bottom fish, spin, jig, and pop the day away. You can also bring your fly gear along if that’s more your style.

All JP Sportfishing Tours charters come with snacks, drinks, and lunch to keep you going. At the end of the trip, your catch will be cleaned and filleted, ready to take home and enjoy. All you need to bring is your fishing license, your camera, and a cooler big enough to fit all your delicious fish.
