I know there is no ice in Costa Rica (Tamarindo Beach) but I will be there next week.
Any of you guys ever fished there? I will be there for quite a few days and am planning to fish at least one day. Can any one recomend some launches or guides? Any advice will be appreciated!
Mike

Can't give you a guide but hire a guide that can take you out after roosterfish.

I honeymooned in Puerto Vallarta in May, from my experience I suggest you take a cab(hold on baby!!!)to the bigger marina in the area and spend a little time going into the shops and look at their photo albums and see what they have been catching lately and what their boats are like and if you even like the guys. I fished with a guide on a small boat and was dissapointed, didn't have radio or sonar but caught a few bonito,$150 usd. The next day we went 20 or so miles to the marina, talked to some serious anglers at their store, went out for the full day trip, they supplied lunch and all beverages, had top of the line gear, 25'+ boat everyone caught fish (marlin) and was happy. They would even refund half your fee if you didn't hook into anything $200 usd. Well worth it to spend the little extra to show your buddies back home what a 100# sailfish looks like.

When I was in Puarto Vallarta there was a bunch of cold water in the area and even the locals said the fishing was horible. I would have liked to go though.

WP do a search on these folks. These are the guys that I have seen Sharra, Winkleman and I think the Capras fishing with. There is a link for them on lots of Sportfishing pages.

All I can say is I wish I were going along. Make sure you eat lots of the local seafood dishes, (Huacinango Veracruzana - Camaranones Diablo - banana leaf tamales )

Another good Language tip - "Otras cervezas, por favor" ... (another round of Beer please)

Buenas Suerte !!!

You should charter a boat and go out! I was in Mazatlan over Thanksgiving, and caught an 8 foot sailfish and a 40# mahi mahi. I could have fished longer if two of the kids hadn't gotten seasick frown.gif . You're going to be in one of the best places in the world for marlin fishing! You HAVE to look into it and GO!
Good Luck!
(Take dramamine or bonine if it's even a little rough though wink.gif )

When did I indicate that it was the same country? Costa Rica has some great fishing.
At one time, the waters off of Costa Rica held the world record for Blue Marlin.
Sheesh.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
