Quepos, Costa Rica

Background
Captain Manuel Gabuardi has been fishing the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica for 30 years and has been the captain of the GOOD DAY for 12 years. Capt. Manuel knows the Quepos waters immensely, and is so passionate about fishing and loves nothing more than taking our guests from all over the world to experience the best fishing that Costa Rica has to offer. Owner & mate of GOOD DAY Benn Gilmour is from the UK & has been fishing around the world all of his life. Benn loves Offshore fishing for Marlin, Sailfish & Big Tuna. Inshore his favorite species are Roosterfish, Snook & Cubera Snappers.
Techniques
Inshore I love flyfishing and light tackle lure fishing with plugs, spoons and softplastics for Roosterfish, Snook & Snappers. In Costa Rica, a freelined live bait works so well also and provides excellent and often very visual sport. Offshore, I love Billfish and have a total obsession with Marlin!! In Costa Rica we are lucky in that we have Blues, Blacks and Stripeys so together with our excellent Sailfish fishing a Grand Slam is always a possibility! I love fishing for Tuna, Mahi, Wahoo, Grouper & Amberjacks also. The lighter the tackle, the better!

Very happy to endorse Benn Gilmour and Jackpot Sport Fishing. Benn worked tirelessly on our behalf to tailor the trip to our specific angling and wildlife photography needs. An unforgettable experience.  If you’re thinking of, or planning an overseas fishing expedition somewhere later this year or next year, drop him an email…..you won’t be disappointed.

My brother came down to visit me for the first time in Costa Rica and I wanted to take him fishing.  I’ve been out with Jackpot Sport Fishing before to catch my first sailfish, so I knew this was the perfect choice for my brother.  They delivered!  Within minutes of throwing out our lines, Nick’s drag was screaming with his first snook.  Several species later he was hooked up to his first rooster fish.  Benn and the crew did an amazing job and they captured our experience on camera too!  If you are thinking about fishing in Costa Rica, you only need to make one phone call and that’s to Jackpot Sport Fishing!  Awesome!

What a day! We enjoyed so many parts of the day, I can’t say enough about the level of professionalism of Benn and his team ensuring we had the experience of a lifetime. Benn was excellent at explaining the process, helping us by identifying various aquatic species and taking amazing photos and videos of our catches and helping by snagging our catches with Jackson.

We succeeded in landing all the fish we had set out for. Captain Manuel’s years of experience and knowledge of the waters directed us to the perfect locations and his skill at the helm make bringing the fish in as easy as possible.

Jackson was so attentive to our needs as well watching that everyone remained in good form. He was seeing the fish hit before we had any idea they were there.

I being limited in mobility and physical strength and endurance was made feel like an able bodied member of the team and when I had any difficulty there was someone available to help me out at all times. I would like to thank all involved for this amazing experience.
