Costa Rica Fishing

Costa Rica's glassy blue waters are home to over 84 different IGFA records, 18 set for billfish alone. The locals struggle to remember a year without at least 3 Super Grand Slams reported, meaning that Sailfish, Blue, Black and Striped marlin were all caught in the same day, by the same boat. Could it be you this year?
