This is a great boat for experienced and new fisherman. Stable and fast. Plenty of room on board. Capt. had some great music while traveling which helps make a good day. David was great deck hand, kept all the gear and landed fish in order. Helpful with landing this fish, but gave us plenty of latitude to do what we where comfortable with handling the rods.

The fishing isn’t as good as other points of the year, but still better than 95% of other countries.

It was a little choppy for us, weather was a bit overcast. Show up early, bring your seasickness medicine of choice (we used peppermint oil which was great), sit back and relax and enjoy your time!

Summer is the slower part of the season so if possible book a longer trip to give more time

Know what fish is available and butting in what months so you go in the correct amount to catch what you want.

Most boats are not at docks. You will take a water taxi so your feet will get wet. Make sure you have water shoes or are willing to go barefoot on a rocky beach.

Find a local captain. Bring some big poppers and top lures. White feather jigs are also good.

Not the best time of year to catch fish, but the charters out of Quepos give you the best chance of catching them. The port was very well kept, clean, and professional. A great experience.

Use Gitana! Tell them you're a novice and ask to practice proper use of the reel beforehand. It is a bit of an art to keep a large fish in the hook.

Quepos in June produces, the weather might put you in a bind depending on how the storms line up but the fish are there and eating.

Be open to bottom fishing to increase your chances of success. We had some success trolling, but bottom fishing was much more successful.

Temper your expectations and listen to your crew. We had an idea of what we wanted - we communicated that and were open to being agile on the bite.

Try shoreline first because it is more accessible and there are plenty of fish. DEEP SEA: At least 2 persons, spend the dollars for a larger boat, try to avoid turist season.

I'd definitely recommend fishing out of Sierpe - it's totally different that fishing out of a large marina... Super cool experience. You get to see the Sierpe River and experience great fishing conditions in a very nice area of Costa Rica.

Go for a full day if you want to catch multiple fish. Don't get too worked up over the little things, they work hard for you. Enjoy the experience come what may Pura Vida.

The weather tends to be nice in early May. Low chances of rain, especially during the mornings. It's not usually too windy, so not very choppy. There's mahi to be had at this time of the year, though they tend to be on the smaller size. You can go chase yellow-tail, but it might be too far offshore for a half-day trip, so if yellow-tail is your target I'd go for a full-day trip. Bring lots of sunscreen and sun protection (long sleeve shirt, hat, sunglasses)
