Background
Captain Merlin on the Mar 1 and Marlin B and owner of the Marlin Restaurant, on the beach, outside of the Manuel Antonio National Park. Merlin grew up here in Quepos, and has been fishing ever since he remembers, every river, estuary and rock around. I can say that fishing is his true passion, one that he always had to combine with the time dedicated to school and work, but the last few years has dedicated much more time to fishing, since I started taken people on fishing charters.

Went fishing on Wednesday, February 11, 2015

We had a good day.  Sardines were not available, so we used look-downs for live bait.  The are large and bony and I believe that they interfere with good hook-ups using circle hooks.  We had several nice hook-ups but pulled the hooks on 3 nice fish.  We landed one decent jack and a Spanish mackerel.  The Captain and mate were knowledgeable and helpful.  I would book them again when in Quepos.
