Those anglers lucky enough to fish over the past week or so had some great moments. Everyone on charters with Costa Rica’s leading sportfishing charter captains caught fish.

Pez Vela Marina in Quepos has been a beehive of sportfishing action. One family from the UK had fun catching – and releasing – jack inshore on the 31ft Good Day with Captain Manuel Gabuardi. Meanwhile, anglers on the 46ft CaribSea with Captain Glenn Morales had planned to spend two days at the FADs. But they called it quits and headed back at 2 PM on Day 1 after releasing three blue marlin, a striped marlin, and sailfish. They got their Grand Slam! And then, another family with Manuel caught six sailfish, this wahoo, and this dorado (below).

Family fishing appears to have been a recurring theme of the past Costa Rica fishing week. Up in Tamarindo on Costa Rica’s North Pacific coast, this family on the 36ft Capullo with Captain Manuel Leal had a fun day catching wahoo, dorado and yellowfin tuna.

Still in the north, but this time in Flamingo, anglers with Captain Junior Bustos on the 31ft Gamefisher II went 2-3 on sailfish, and caught three 20-35lb dorado, and two yellowfin tuna 20-40lbs.
