shad roe?

One of the things that I miss with a late season here in Costa Rica.  I may get some this year! 
Thanks Greg for sending the pic, he caught over 50 in 3 hours today
Down the river there is some excellent speck fishing happening.  Lots of action and a few keepers.

Newsletter forthcoming

Keep an eye out for it.   I am about caught up from all of Anna's honey do's. 
The fishing down here was red hot but slowed down quite a bit this week.  I am hoping for a chance to get out there,  at the very least for some inshore action before the last leg of the Triple Crown in a couple of weeks.

Sorry I've been slack on reports

Just been working my butt off.   Seriously, fun day at the beach yesterday, first one in a long time.    Other than that big roosterfish from the beach earlier in the season, one catfish while fishing with Roy and the tournaments, I have been tied down to the office.....

Slack in reports

Dragin Fly Fishing Reports

I was advised that I have been slack with my fishing reports.   Yup, I have been overlooking this site, but have been posting reports from Costa Rica and the Dragin Fly at the above link.

It sounds like things are starting to turn into spring in NC with some shad and stripers around, a few trout in the creeks, drum at the beach......but still too cold for me to head that direction, especially with the good fishing here in Costa Rica. 

We just finished up the 2nd leg of the Triple Crown, landing 57 sailfish in 3 days, but only good enough for 11th place.   I hope that great sailfishing continues.

I'll be in the office all week, still catching up and trying to get that newsletter out.   Don't wait on us, if you are ready to get out on the water, shoot us an e mail and we'll make it happen.

NC booking for this season are very busy and we have had a rash of inquiries for  Costa Rica 2020.

Office week

We love entertaining friends in Costa Rica but this week we have no house guests, so Anna and I will be in the office catching up. 

Starting to book up for Costa Rica 2020, so now is a good time to reserve your fishing dates. 

NC is looking very busy this year, we will be finalizing details and sending deposit requests shortly. 

When we have our head out of the swamp, maybe we can get a newsletter together. 

In the meantime, down here in Costa Rica the boats are picking away at them.  A few sails each day, dorado for dinner, an occassional marlin and school of hungry tunas.  Nothing crazy red hot, but decent fishing and great times being had by all.

We should have let the ladies fish

Three days in Solar Detention.   Wow, tough tourney.   We managed to hook some really nice dorado and a few sails, but for us marlin were elusive.  For the charters we had fishing on other boats but not in the tournament caught marlin every day!  Plus sails, tuna and dorado.

Maybe next month in leg 2.

Los Suenos Ladies

They were in it until the end with a striped marlin and 3 sailfish.

Hot and Dry with double digit day

Unpacking and settling in.   Double digit day on the Dragin Fly today.  Decent start to the season.

Big goofey yellow dogs

One of the things I am going to miss this season in Costa Rica.

Merry Christmas

Slack on the reports.
We've had some guides chasing the trout with good success this past week.   Messing with a few ducks.  Getting geared up for Costa Rica where the Dragin Fly is fishing each day and more reports are posted at that site.
Merry Christmas
