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.

The Captains, crew, and staff of FishingNosara


September 2, 2015

The Discoverer has built a reputation as a billfish battleship, and on September 2 they scored a pair of Sailfish releases.

The blue water has retreated a little farther out from shore, expanding the area where the behemoths can hide…but there is no escaping Captain David and his view from the top of the Discoverer‘s tower.

Great work on these excellent releases.

The Adventurer‘s hot streak of Rooster Fish releases continued into late August, with some 40lbs.+ pez gallos meeting their match.

Captain Fico continues to master the art of Rooster wrangling, as evidenced by these photos.

Of course the 23-foot switchblade can always be counted on for some meat…check out this 15lbs. Cierro Mackeral:

All in a day’s work for the inshore assassin!

August 26, 2015

The staff of Nosara Paradise Rentals took some much-deserved time off on the 26th to celebrate Marino, Alejandro, and Grevan’s birthdays. They joined Captain William on the Wanderer for an afternoon of inshore fishing and scored this sweet Rooster Fish release:

Later they enjoyed some tasty cake back at the campus.

Happy Birthday fellas!

Joe Netti spent a great week in Nosara chasing billfish on the Super Panga Explorer.

Check out these beautfiul Sailfish releases:

Great work Captain Carlos and Mate Kevin!

August 23, 2015

Client Jay Evart joined the flagship for a morning half day and scored the fish of a lifetime:

This feisty Striped Marlin is an angler’s dream, and the Wanderer proves that you can catch the ocean’s baddest fish in just a short time on the water.

Excellent work all around by the mighty Wanderer.

August 22, 2015

Captain David scored a MAMMOTH Blue Marlin with client Chad Grimes of North Carolina on August 22.

This beast is every bit of 300lbs. and is truly the fish-of-a-lifetime.

They followed up with a nice Sailfish release later in the day.

Fantastic work by Captain David, Mate Juan Carlos, and Fico from the Adventurer.

August 22, 2015

The Wanderer keep up her strong performance into late August as Captain William delivered three great Sailfish releases for his clients.

First Mate Alex put on a demo for our new boathand Mate Johnson on the finer points of Sailfish releasing.

Looks like it’s rubbing off!

Wonderful work by the flagship!

August 20, 2015

Captain David is dialed-in on the Discoverer and his clients reaped the rewards this month.

Sailfish releases have been plentiful, headlined by this 200lbs.+ monster:

The big battleship backed that up with several more great releases:

Meat fish have been on the menu for Captain David’s clients, with Yellowfin Tuna ranging from 20lbs. to well over 50lbs.

Most recently Craig scored a sweet Rooster Fish release:




August 19, 2015

After their excellent action offshore, Buz Underill returned to the Wanderer and opted to stay in close to ply the reefs just outside Garza Bay.

They deployed our exclusive Cubera Snapper Tactic and scored big:

This monster weighs at least 50lbs. and its filets will pair nicely with the 80lbs. of Dorado they scored earlier in the week.

Great work by Mr. Underill and the crew of the flagship Wanderer.

August 18, 2015

Chad Grimes and his posse of North Carolina anglers put a hurtin’ on the inshore reef dweller on August 18 with the flagship Wanderer.

This monster Rooster fish release at the start of the day was just the tip of the iceberg.

They followed up with a MAMMOTH Cubera Snapper (unusual for so early in the day) and then added a late-day Rooster fish release.

Great work from our friends from CCA North Carolina!
