FishingNosara’s Costa Rica Fishing Report features the best catches from our Captains plus includes news, fishing advice, and updates on all of our Costa Rican projects.
What started as a simple mailing list has grown over time to include full-color photographs of the best catches, links to videos and client-submitted reports.
We hope that the Fishing Report keeps our community of clients feeling connected until they return to Nosara and helps upcoming clients get properly excited for their Costa Rica Vacation!

Captain Fico reports an excellent Sailfish release from his trip on March 26.
Michael Graham joined up with the Discoverer on March 24 and started the day off right with this Striped Marlin release:
Throughout the rest of the day they bushwhacked ten small Dorado, yielding this sweet sack of filets:
Great day from Captain Carlos on the big battleship!
FishingNosara Hall of Famer Derrell McCrary returned to the Wanderer for a full day of legendary blue water action.
His posse of Tampa-based anglers has been fishing on the big blue beauty since 2011, but nothing could prepare them for this Marlin assault.
This feisty Striped Marlin came calling early in the trip, and was well-handled by Mate Johnson.
Less than an hour later the real monster came calling…this MASSIVE Black Marlin is one for the ages!
She put on a show but Captain William stayed one step ahead of this Marlin to keep the fight as short as possible.
The final piece of the Grand Slam puzzle fell into place at the end of the trip. This Sailfish release puts the finishing touch on the most difficult feat in fishing: Billfish Grand Slam!
The Discoverer and Dan Wood group posted an amazing day of billfish action on March 22. They nabbed a 200lbs. Blue Marlin early in the trip:
Later the Sailfish bite heated up with this challenging Double Sailfish release followed up with a third Sailfish right at the end of the half-day trip.
Pretty sweet for just a half day trip!
The offshore bite has been heating up, and Captain Carlos has been stalking his offshore prey in the big battleship Discoverer.
A day after scoring this big Sailfish release, he returned to the offshore blue water and piled up some nice Yellowfin Tuna filets:
Captain David welcomed client Jan Schroers for a fantastically productive half-day of fishing with 10 Red Groupers in the fishbox.
Anybody ready for a grouper sandwich? How about a few dozen?
Dan Wood and his group found world-class success with Captain William on the Wanderer.
The highlight was this excellent Black Marlin release…they don’t get much better than this!
The action continued with an sweet Sailfish release later in the day.
Great work by the mighty flagship!

Excellent work by the Super Panga!
Lauren Merriam and Larry Schenavar knocked it out of the park on March 16 with a beautiful Striped Marlin release on the Discoverer.
Backed up by a nice Sailfish, these Crystal River anglers clearly put up a great day of billfish releases.
