Captain
Marc Delvaux

Member since January 2019 La Fortuna, Costa Rica
Background
I live in Costa Rica since 1981 and since I was 6 years old, I always loved fishing. Although I studied to become a bookkeeper, I knew an office was not my style and wanted to make my hobby into my job. I started fishing Lake Arenal about 25 years ago and since I like the surroundings, I made it my base to make some money. I am pretty successful in what I do and pretty well-known in the area by my nickname "EL BELGA."
Techniques
I offer spinning and baitcasting Rods and like casting in the early morning and late afternoon and trolling and jigging when it gets to warm and fish go to deeper waters.
