The Ultimate Fishing Adventure with FishCostaRica

May might see a slowdown in the billfish action off Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast, but the magic of catching marlin and sailfish is still very much alive.

FishCostaRica offers thrilling two- or three-day overnight fishing trips to the FADs with IGFA award-winning Captain Bobby McGuinness. Recently, our client Charlie Atwood, his wife, and friends embarked on this adventure, releasing five blue marlin and 11 sailfish in just under two days.

Enjoy the serenity of the ocean as you spend one, two, or three nights in peaceful tranquility.

What are FADs and Why They Work

FADs (fish aggregating devices) are buoys located 40 to 120 miles off the coast, attracting marlin and sailfish in large numbers. Bobby McGuinness, honored by the Billfish Foundation in 2016, tagged more Pacific blue marlin than any other captain at these FADs.

We had a great trip with Bobby! He is an amazing guide, and we got the marlin we needed for our bucket list!
Each of us caught at least one marlin, and we topped it off with some sailfish. Bobby was on a roll! We look forward to doing this again!”
