Background
Fishing has been my passion since I was small. I love the ocean and have lived and worked by the ocean my entire life. I love to surf and fish, so I made this my everyday hobby and job.The ocean is my office. Pura Vida!
Techniques
When I go fishing inshore I like to start trolling around 5 knots looking for live bait around the Islands. Then I go and use my down rigger between 10 and 30 + ft deep and look for roosters, amber jacks you know 'big boys". When I go offshore I use Ballyhoo as bait, and I head out for sailfish, marlin, mahi mahi and yellow fin tuna.

Bad luck. No fish. Not for lack of trying. Walter, the captain did everything right and tried several different set ups. They just weren’t biting. I am thinking this is a slow season, early December, and would suggest Sept, Oct or later in Jan.

First off, Captain Boos was very responsive to emails and easy to keep in contact with. He was waiting at the “marina” when we got there and introduced us to the captain who would be taking us out for the day. The marina is really just a boat ramp, no structure or facilities available so plan according if you are traveling a distance to get there, make any restroom or food stops prior to getting there.
The fishing trip was an overall good experience, our Captain Walter and mate Eduardo were very friendly and we had a good day on the water with them. The bite was very slow (I get it, it’s fishing, no worries) and we trolled for several hours. We finally got a bite and it was a nice sailfish, which was awesome as I’ve never caught one before. We got it in and posed for a quick picture and a safe release of the fish. That was it for the fishing , we caught one small Bonita late in the day while trolling home.
They worked hard to find us fish until the very end, it just didn’t really happen. It wasn’t for lack of effort.
Now the reason for the average review, I specifically request to go rooster fishing, I came to Costa Rica with one goal in mind, CATCH A ROOSTER FISH! I made that very clear but when we got on the boat I was told they couldn’t find bait, that there were no rooster fish around anymore. I’m a fishermen I understand difficulty finding bait. But that was the one thing I wanted to fish for and we didn’t even try. I get trying to put people on fish, however I booked for one specific reason and we didn’t even attempt to make it possible. What was even more frustrating was when we got back to our resort at the end of the day, the people who fished (in the same area we were in most of the day) caught 2 big rooster fish.
Overall experience was a good day on the water, frustrates me that I was very clear with type of fishing and didn’t even try. Just trolled baits all day long.

Hola Dan thank you very much for taking the time on your vacation to leave us the 3 star review our lower review so far

I would take every positive word that your mentioned because the people who is going to read this for some reason the always remember the bad ones so let me a list of the good thinks

1- Captain Boos was very responsive to emails and easy to keep in contact with.
2- The fishing trip was an overall good experience
3- Captain Walter and mate Eduardo were very friendly and we had a good day on the water with them
4-We got a bite and it was a nice sailfish, which was awesome as I’ve never CAUGTH one before
5-They worked hard to find us fish until the very end
6-Overall experience was a good day on the water.

About the Rooster fish I would like to star mention that my crew arrived to the marina at 5 am every day looking for bite, some days are plenty, some days are only a few, some days are nothing, and is that the way the ocean works for us, I been to United States and here in Costa Rica is VERY DEFERENT the way you find the bite we don’t have any body with big tanks or anything even closer

Captain Walter had two options keep trying to find bite all morning and maybe don’t catch anything or go offshore and try at less to give you a nice larger fish. And they found a nice sailfish for you. (Btw Im agree with the call he make)

When you target only one fish the pressure is on, and is no very easy thing to do.

Have a nice day and thank you again for your positive words we are a family that work hard to make everybody happy and is some thing very hard to do

And btw we love your BIG smile on the picture

Pura vida and enjoy your Sunday

Pretty rough storm rolled through the area the evening before and threw some fishing off, but our experience was incredible. I was very satisfied with the communication behind the entire process. Christian Boos reached out to me about the storm and suggested going out before everyone else so we trolled about 2hrs before other charters arrived. If you are wanting to fish the Flamingo area I highly recommend this charter because of the intangible communication. Beautiful area of CR and incredible waters.

Captain Walter did an excellent job putting us on the fish.  We caught 9 fish including a jack crevale and a yellowfin tuna.  We only kept the yellowfin.  He was kind enough to filet the yellowfin.  We had a wonderful family meal back at our hotel.  The boat was very good as well.  I highly recommend this company and Captain Walter.

We caught 4 nice yellowfins and 2 snapper. Would recommend these guys to anybody near Flamingo Beach. Ill be booking with them the next time we are in Costa Rica for sure!!! Pura vida!!!!

Great guys, we caught lots of fish and hooked a huge fish. We were fishing inland expecting to get into big fish but we hooked onto something that was massive. It ended up breaking the steel leader before we can see it. This was after a 45 minute flight. Unbelievable!

Amazing fishing day! Started early in the morning, the boat was there on time, and in great shape, very comfortable. We caught some live bait, and replaced the lures on the rods. After a little while my friend got a tuna, the captain Walter was super kind and friendly, he even cut some of the tuna for us and we ate sashimi on the boat while fishing. Minutes later I got lucky and started fighting my fish, it was the strongest fish I´ve ever caugth, after a long fight I finally got it on the boat to find out it was a big beatifull rooster fish, first one of my life, we had to release it because it is a protected specie but it was great to see it swimming away. an experience I´m sure will never forget. My friend and I brought our wives so we had some snacks and drinks that Walter had for us and he took us to a nearby spot so they (and we) can do some snorkeling….they loved it too. Then we got back on the boat and returned to the marina. Great trip, strongly recommended!!

I contact Capitan Boos though the website and Cristina reply in minutes will all the info we need, she was super helpful.
Then Capita Christian Boos took care of us, he is very friendly and knows all about the fishing in the area, we went out i a sunny Costa Rica day in the Orange Machine ( that is how he call his boat), we had amazing day catching Black and Yellow find Tuna, some Red Snapper as well. After that day was no more restaurants for us cause we had so much fresh fish for all of us for the next 4 days we spend in Tamarindo.
Thanks Very Much to Boos Adventures Crew especially to Capitan Boos
A+ Highly Recommend .

I’ve been to Costa Rica 9 times since 1999, and have been out with Boos Adventures on my last 6 trips, and let me tell you they absolutely live up to the hype… “All we do is Surf & Fish”!!!
These guys have the fishing grounds and surf spots on lock, they know exactly when and where to be every day based on tides, winds, etc.  My most recent trip last weekend I landed a monster Almaco Jack, Amber Jack get much bigger, this Almaco is the biggest any of my friends have ever seen, he was a true stud!  I highly recommend hooking up with these guys on your next trip down, coming from this Texas boy I can guarantee you will not be let down!!!

I went fishing with Boos, July 13 on a full day! My husband and I had an amazing time!!
We caught a HUGE sail fish, just what my husband had always dreamed of seeing in person, and they made it happen! We also caught other great catch throughout the trip.
The attention was phenomenal, the snacks were great! These guys know what they are doing!
I have no words to express what a great trip we had with them! This company is recommended 100% as one of the best fishing charters I have ever been on. Highly recommended!
If you want a good time book with them!
