What anglers said about fishing in Guanacaste

Jose told us that off shore fishing in this area at this time was not the best. At first trolling we did not catch much. But when we started drop shotting, it was one fish after another!

Carefully select the boat and captain. Most of te boats at Tamarindo do not have a toilet, an AC cabin

Seek out Capt. Randy and the Talking Fish boat. He is an expert in the Tamarindo waters.

Feb. is not the best fishing month. Never the less we caught 3 nice mahi mahi .But just as exciting for the women aboard were the hundreds of dolphins & jumping stingrays , with many turtles & flying fish. All in all it was a great time.

Choose what you want to catch. Fishing is different for the species targeted.

Bring a hard sided cooler so you can get your catch home. They fillet it right in the boat.

pay a little more if you want more variety and gamers. we went for Dorado (mahi mahi) and tuna. we hit Dorado during our trip and were happy because all 6 of us caught fish! it's one of the only charters I could find in this price range for 5 hours. most others were 4 hours for the same price. crew made it effortless. highly recommend! Also saw a lot of Dolphins and Leatherback Sea Turtles as an added bonus!

Our trip was action packed - a hit about every 15 minutes with a good fight to reel in each one. The crew was positive, helpful and informative.
