Costa Rica Report

I'm down here on "business", lining up details for next year and sending Capt. Jake Jordan and his friend Danny off on the Dragin Fly for some fly fishing for blue marlin.   Last year Danny caught several blues on the fly with us and they are hoping to duplicate that success.

Yesterday afternoon I got the call that the seas were calm and the tarpon were biting at Silver King Lodge, so I hopped on a helicopter with my friend Marc and we were tarpon fishing at 1 pm this afternoon.  By 4:30 we were spent, landing 15 tarpon!!!!!   Pretty much a continuous double header every time we put a bait in the water.    We had 3 or 4 little 20-40 pounders but most of them were respectable fish approaching 100 pounds.....which is about as big as I want 'em.
