Costa Rica blue marlin fishing

I did not get the last day report yet, but James was a little bummed by the "slow" fishing.   They caught 6 blue marlin each day, plus 3 sails and pulled off a yellowfin well into the triple digits.  

"Slow" fishing?   Guess it was the full moon, only 12 blue marlin releases in two days.   Ask the guys in the Big Rock how many days they would have to fish in order to see 12 blue marlin.

Still some around

This one caught behind the outerbanks and out of the wind with Capt. Greg

Shark Fishing

"George.....put me down for that Tuesday July 12th......Our trip today was a first time for me in many ways.   I caught my biggest blacktop shark by far at an easy 150lbs.....I caught my first spinner shark and the jumping was really cool......and I never experienced seeing that amount of sharks Ina feeding frenzy in my life in person ! .....I hate most sharks, but I love black tips, lemons, and spinners nc they fight with speed and behave more like a gamefish than a lazy shark.   Luke hooked up a huge blacktip and a huge spinner on the fly rod but both were too big to deal with and broke I said, black tips are more like gamefish than sharks.    I told Chris we can do this again in July no problem if weather doesn't allow for us to get out to amberjacks!"   ---Frank

Closer to home

A nice cobia from Capt. Justin Haddock.   Took a little longer to catch bait than usual, but we've all been there.

One big snook

Caught on the Pink Panga out of Quepos while we were at the sea mounts.   Also got a report of 17 tarpon releases in one day on the other side.   

Back on line

Series of posts and pics from the Down East Guides as I catch up on e mails.   check out the fishing reports at to get the full report from the sea mounts.

Excellent fishing

Reports from the last couple of days.   Still plenty of cobia in the bait balls, even a gaffer dolphin with as many as a handful caught by one boat at the sea buoy.   We had a 3 boat trip on the Pamlico that worked out really well with healthy mixed bags of trout, flounder, puppydrum and even stripers.
