Great day out there today! John W landed a nice Blue Marlin and then had a couple of sails. He also stoped on the way out and racked up some snapper and grouper, so everybody got some filets to take and eat out! I'm not sure if the Marlin are in for good, or if just this week, but we should be coming into Marlin season so I'm hoping to see some more big ones out there every week!

Great day out there today! Average boat in Quepos released 1 sailfish, but John W on our boat the Stress Reeliever 2 went 6 for 6 on sailfish! John W really had a good bead on where to stop running, they had the first fish on in 30 minutes, and then around 1 PM the customers had released 3 sailfish each and were worn out and ready to go in! Weather has been really nice as well out here, and it's been some fun trip out! We have been breaking up the offshore days lately with some great bottom fishing as well, there have been some really nice snapper down there, and we have also been getting everybody some nice grouper for those fish dinners! Great fishing out here in Quepos!

Quepos Roosterfish Fishing Quepos Roosterfish Fishing

June has been a great month out here for the fishing! The big story is the snapper we've been seeing. We are used to seeing almost all roosterfish, but Johnny has really been mixing it up this month, and we've probably landed about as many nice snapper and grouper as we have roosterfish. And then there were a couple of days when we really laid into the snook. Unlike typical June fishing, there have been nice schools of sardines up and down the coast. Night Bait for lookdowns has been really good as well, but when we get to use both lookdowns and sardines, the fish seem to like the variety!

One day this week, Johnny found a school of sardines loaded with tons of Snook chasing them. This was the result:

We got a call a couple days back around 2:30PM from a frustrated customer who had fished 8 days with other inshore companies in Costa Rica, but had still never landed a Roosterfish. He had talked with some of our customers from that week who landed 9 roosterfish with us, so he was upset because he was leaving the next day and wouldn't have time to fish with us. Even though it was 2:30 PM and we had no bait, I called Johnny up and we got all setup and left the dock about 45 minutes later. And we landed the customer his first roosterfish, and got this great night shot!

John,

Thank you so much for accommodating us at the last minute. Captain Johnny, is an absolute professional and was committed to my goal of catching a rooster fish. Previously, I'd spent 8 days on the water searching for by first respectable rooster and this was the first I've landed. Johnny resisted to give up and ended up getting me on one in the pitch dark at the marina before we got to the dock.

I will absolutely be back to fish with Johnny soon!

Here is some awesome drone footage of the Stress Reeliever 2 running the coast in front of Quepos! The hull on the Stress Reeliever 2 was designed to make little wake at slow speeds so the fish can see the lures better, this video shows how clean the water behind the Stress Reeliever 2 is! Check out our latest video we took showing our radar finding birds:

QUEPOS FISHING FORECAST

Black Marlin Quepos Costa Rica

Billfish season is here! November through April is when all the sailfish and Marlin come out and we are so looking forward to some awesome billfish action offshore! Inshore this is also the best time of the year, we usually have big scools of sardines run through the area bringing with them roosterfish, snapper and sometimes snook. Johnny alos has some hidden seabass spots, so inshore fishing will be great! This is also the time of the year when the ocean really lays down and there are no waves or rain. Great for families or people who like to catch lots of fish without getting beat up! The weather will be 70 at night and 80 during the day for the whole 6 months, so Costa Rica is a great escape from the snow and ice of up north. This year John W's Stress Reeliever 2 just received a corecell foam floor to help deaden vibrations as well. This 30 thousand dollar upgrade should be good for at least 2-4 extra sailfish a trip. Going to be some great fishing out here in Sunny Quepos Costa Rica!

Costa Rica Fishing


Costa Rica is one of the premier places in the world not only to fish but to vacation. Boasting Several different climate types from cloud forests, volcanoes, and many tropical beaches, there is something for everyone here. On the Pacific side, there are an abundance of Marlin and Sailfish. On the Atlantic side there are tons of Tarpon. We are located and focus on the Marlin Sportfishing on the Pacific side of the country.

Quepos Fishing


Quepos is one of the premier fishing spots in Costa Rica. Located in the dead center of the Pacific coast, it gives us access to fish various fishing grounds, including the same fishing grounds fished by Los Suenos and Dominical. Also protected by two large peninsulas, The water in front of Quepos is also the calmest water in Costa Rica, with wave heights rarely measuring over 3 feet. Great for first time fisherman, or fisherman who don't like to go home with bruises:)

Quepos Sportfishing / Charter Boats


Quepos has a pretty nice charter fleet. There are about 35 charter boats that are fishing in Quepos, about half of those are well maintained with good captains. If you are looking for a smaller or bigger boat, I am friends with almost everybody here and I can give you my discounted "agency" price on any charter boat fishing in Quepos. That price is usually similar to the price I offer the public on personal charter boat (for a simliar sized boat).

Manuel Antonio Hotels


Quepos is the town that is located next to Manuel Antonio park and beaches, which are the most sought after beaches in Cosat Rica. Low currents, clear water, great fishing, and cliff dwelling-ocean view hotels make this an unforgettable place to stay. Hotel prices are on par or lower than most average American hotels, but with a much nicer views!

Costa Rica Sportfishing


Costa Rica doesn't have fishing seasons and limits like the US, but that doesn't mean we can kill everything we hook. We release all billfish unless they come in dead (1 per year), that includes releasing both sailfish and Marlin.We are allowed to keep other gamefish though, and finding either a Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Amberjack or Snapper for dinner is almost always a possibility.

John S owns all three of our boats, so you are communicating directly with the owner of the company, not someone upselling a friends boat to make a quick buck.
