Robert was delighted, within a fifteen minute ride, a line in the water and bam!
Robert came down to Costa Rica with his wife on a normal vacation to see our Nature. While at the resort he decided to kill some time and go out fishing for a half day trip, he enjoyed the verbal banter the night before with Luis Chavaria, our boats Captain and felt the $240 for a half day trip would be fun. They needed a second mate and Aliro, our resorts gardener wanted to go and help out, he being from the Central Valley and fishing for him here in Guanacaste in the bay and coastal waters was new.
Well, when they came back their stories were loud, their pictures in hand and delight at offering everyone some Mahi Mahi for dinner. Bob was so excited with the catches, he could not believe that right there, but 15 minutes from the resort they could catch so many fish with fighters such as the Mahi Mahi. In fact, Bob had so many hock-ups with fish, he wanted to give the rod to Alirio to bring in the second Mahi Mahi so he could get the feeling of brining in a bigger fish. Robert left Costa Rica amazed, never thinking that just going out, 15 minutes from the resort out to our islands would result in such great fishing.
Our waters are protected, the sailfish are returned to the sea, the Mahi Mahi is dinner. Fishing required a permit which Luis purchases and provides all the gear. Luis was born on the white sand beach across the bay from us, Jicaro Beach, has lived and worked in these waters his whole life. Our Front Desk staff will set up an interview with Luis prior to heading out as Bob did. Different times of the year produce different results due to migratory and wind conditions.
