What People Are Saying About Sailfish Fishing in Costa Rica

"Half Day With Chino"

Joe Hall fished with Chino's Sportfishing on May 12, 2018

We were lucky enough to ride with the man himself and it was a blast. Hooked 3 sailfish that popped off after the big shake and jump, but many Mahi were landed. We were late for the shuttle home because they kept hitting as we were trying to reel all the lines in and return to the marina. Good problem to have. Book this one, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Chino!

"Full Day with a Capt Jeorge "

Richie Lincoln fished with Disco Pirata on May 10, 2018

Awesome experience went for my 22nd birthday with 4 friends landed 19 mahi before 11am and threw a bunch of little ones back, they were definitely experienced fishermen when fishing for marlin and sailfish no luck but caught a huge Dolphin at the end. Lunch, beer and snacks were included. 10/10

"Full day with Rommel and the captain "

Pierre Dupreez fished with Straight Up With A Twist on April 22, 2018

Seemed to be the only boat out actually catching anything! For a slow day we missed a marlin , landed 4 good sailfish and a very tasty mahi mahi . By the end of the day we were the most exhausted and happy fishermen. The captain and crew worked non stop ! Dont know they lasted in that heat ! Hats off to them .
