Understand it is into the rainy season, so the weather and waves can be rough. Still big fish to be caught.

Full day is best to get out as far as you need to fish for the big fish. Bathe yourself in sunscreen!

Live bait for rooster is definitely the best, especially if you're looking for a big one ! Once done, move to popping and jigging around the rocks... soooo good !!

Remember that it's called "fishing" and not "catching" for a reason. Some days the fish just aren't there. Understand which months are best for the type of fish you're hoping to catch. If you've got specific questions, contact the respective charter contact for details. All of them seemed very willing to assist and answer any questions.

Bring plenty of sunscreen and if possible bring a hand towel to wipe your hands when you get fish juice on them! Don't eat a big breakfast before going out, because the head on some boats aren't like what you'd find at a 4-Seasons resort! And if the bite is on, you'll be dead tired by the end of the day!!

Probably some of the best fishing in the world out of this port. Bring lots of protection from sun, long sleeve fishing shirts and pull over masks are great

Great guys, they put us on fish, we saw lots of whales. The Capt. and Crew were 1st class! They had all the right setups to catch fish. The boat is twin motors and with wide Carolina bow flare, litter water spray. Highly recommend these guys. No need to pay for a big sportfishing vessel, when you have these guys. See you next year!!

My wife & I had a wonderful Roosterfish trip with Jose and Jorge. I really wanted a rooster as we can’t catch them in FL, and these guys didn’t disappoint. They worked hard the entire morning for us and got us on several roosters. They came with the cooler well stocked with food and drinks. We even got to see some humpback whales and sea turtles. I’ll definitely book my next Jaco, CR fishing trip with Jose & Jorge. They’re top notch!

Awesome family fishing day. The crew were professional, friendly and totally focussed on making the day as special as possible for us and our 3 children (aged 12, 10 and 8). We caught several fish snd they moved around to keep the fishing fresh. We caught a 25 lbs grouper and a wahoo, as well as marguerita snappers and other snappers. The boat is in very good condition and very clean, and also goes very fast when needed. Thank you for a terrific day out.

Capt Jorge and First Mate Kelsey made this fishing trip a memorable and fun experience! They were professional, hilarious, and so kind! My boyfriend and I mistakenly went to the wrong meet up spot and Capt Jorge was kind enough to drive and pick us up at the wrong location. I felt safe the whole entire time and we even caught a fish! Recommend them A+!

Had an enjoyable trip with these guys. Although fish weren’t biting much of the trip, we did get some action and guys were great about trying different locations, trying both lures and live bait, and even gave us an extra hour to try and find more action. Still had a great 6 hour trip. Highly recommend as trip was very reasonable for the 2 of us.

We caught LOTS of fish, more than we could eat! The crew was great, and filleted the fish for us on the way back to shore. We took the fish to Puesta de La Sol afterwards and they made us a fantastic dinner with our catch!

Captain Randy and David did a wonderful job of keeping my wife and I involved in the fishing experience. I had told Captain Randy when we booked the trip that I wanted to catch a Rooster Fish, this being a fish I had yet to catch. We trolled several different spots, managing to catch two very nice SeaBass, before finally catching a 42 inch Rooster Fish. Very happy with the boat and crew and would recommend to all.

Great day fishing despite rain and choppy sea. We caught enough fish to eat for the remainder of our trip including mahi-mahi and tuna. We also caught other varieties of fish including a nice sailfish. The captain and first mate worked very hard and did a great job. The captain and first mate had great personalities and was lots of fun especially when reeling in the larger fish. Would highly recommend this trip and will use the same captain if ever in Costa Rica again.

The first two hours we were just riding around. All of a sudden, fish were jumping on our hook as we caught a couple of sailfish, Grouper and Mahi Mahi to name a few. Great experience, great captain and first mate, music and food. I would definitely go out with FishingBooker again on my next visit to Costa Rica 🇨🇷 😊!
