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

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.

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
