We returned to Costa Rica the last week of January 2013 for more R&R and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Fishing was back on the menu - 3 full days of it. This was more of a guy outing this time (only because my wife wanted it that way), 2 of my sons ( 22 and 26 ) and myself took to the ocean. It was a great week. The seas were 1 to 2 slight over cast and no rain.
The Boat: A 26 foot Shamrock, a little aged but it's a fishing boat and I got 3 trips for the price of one. Other boats wanted up to $3500 a day (and we were right there with them fishing) - Our Captain was Cesar and First mate was Frank. This boat was again a great choice especially since we had it in years past, they are very affordable, always put us on fish and very accommodating. Both of the crew members speak fluent English and both worked hard to make sure that we had fish and fun.
The crew put the lines out and in the first hour not a single bite, nothing at all then Cesar decided to change baits and teasers.
Within only a few minutes of the lines going back out the knock downs started. I can't tell you how many double hook ups we got and that's when the fun really began. Sail after Sail and it didn't stop until Cesar said we had to go 8 hours later.
The bite stayed HOT for all 3 trips out that week and Cesar stayed on top of it. To be honest I lost count after 25.
The last time I went out on this boat with this Captain I labeled it a Trip of a Life Time when he put us on a bunch of Roosters. This trip matched the last. I think Cesar has some high expectations to live up to when we return and I know he won't let us down.
All food and beverages were provided, we wanted for nothing. They were a great crew. When you think the trip is over I get an email from the owner Hal making sure everything went as well as possible.
Excellent Follow Up, Excellent Crew, Excellent Fishing and Sara, a very supportive part leading up to the reservation of the boat was Fantastic. We highly recommend this Boat. Call Hal and tell him Tommy sent you. We'll be back and thanks for a very memorable trip.
