Great fishing continues in Costa Rica

Consistent double digit days
Good tournament fishing, check out the report at www.draginflycostarica.com 
Thankfully some are willing to come and jump through the hoops, which are really not that bad and Anna made easy.

Roanoke River Striped Bass Season one week only at Weldon

 Upper River open season (above 258 Bridge at Scotland Neck): April 24th – April 30th.

Lower River open season (below 258 Bridge at Scotland Neck): April 10th – April 16th.

 These weeks (Saturday through Friday on the calendar this year) were picked because the harvest in each zone on these dates is the highest we’ve seen on average over the last nine years. The season changes were made because the quota was reduced from 68,750 pounds to 12,800 pounds.

more hoops. Epic fishing

 More hoops through which to jump but EPIC fishing awaits those who are willing

 After 9 months of pointless Costa Rica travel restrictions the USA is now taking the lead in dumb ass rules that do nothing but stifle tourism and small business. 

As of Jan. 26 a negative COVID test is required to enter the USA.   No problem making that happen on our end down here.  Testing is on site and available here at Los Suenos with results within 24 hours. 

This unfortunate restriction will not slow the ongoing spread of the China virus in the US but it is very effective at discouraging travel, which I guess is the point? 

As a result of this new bone-head restrcition, we have plenty of last minute openings on the Dragin Fly. 

Book 3 days and get a 4th day FREE.

short day in Costa Rica


Short day quit fishing at noon catch 4 sailfish 1 mahi mahi 2 yellow fin tuna and 1 blue marlin

Our calendar is like playing "Whack A Mole"  .  Coronapanic cancellations and vaccine rebookings have given us very rare scattered openings during the peak season. 

Great deals on conods, stay a week but only pay for 5 nights at reduced Green Season rates. 

Seamount season is looking good, we are completely booked for seamount trips from mid-june through mid-August but we still have openings May/early June and later in August through mid-November which is typically the peak of our seamount season and opporutnity for double digit days on blue marlin.
