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!

The Captains, crew, and staff of FishingNosara
Kevin and Stephanie Bickers of Jacksonville had a big time with Captain Fico on the Explorer. They nabbed several nice Yellowfin Tuna and scored a wonderful Sailfish release.
The Discoverer kept rocking with Captain Sergio’s group reporting countless Yellowfin Tuna releases.
Anglers James Koslowski, Mary Roberts, Gus Martinez, and Wayne Fernandez have plenty of filets for their time in Nosara.
They also nabbed a pair of Sailfish releases for the trophy case.
Captain Carlos kept up the good time for Captain Sergio’s group on day two with anglers Gus Martinez, Jerold Long,
Christine Long, John Martinez, and Judy Martinez.
These two Sailfish releases were the highlight of the day which also included two Dorados and two Yellowfin Tuna.
Tampa based fishing personality Captain Sergio Atanes has brought another group of fun-loving Florida anglers down to Nosara to shoot a few episodes of the critically-acclaimed La Buena Pesca TV Show.
On day 1 the cameras were rolling as anglers Doug Weeks, Inman Lanier, William Mulcahy and Luke Mulcahy nabbed SEVEN Sailfish releases.
These monsters kept Captain Carlos and Mate Kevin busy all day long.
Great work by the big battleship Discoverer!
On July 10 Captain William headed offshore to Sailfish City and nabbed four lovely releases.
It’s great to see that the Sailfish have returned in numbers and that they are hungry!
They finished off the day with this juvenile Sailfish release. We’ll see this little fella again in about a year when he is all grown up.
The Discoverer scored an excellent Sailfish release on July 10, with Captain Fico of the Explorer filling-in at the mate position.
Great work by the big battleship and angler Mike Hollis.
The Wanderer delivered a fun memorable trip for angler Mike Hollis and his group with a scorecard marked up with Marlin, Sailfish, and Yellowfin Tuna.
After an early Yellowfin Tuna, this Striped Marlin came in after a feisty battle.
She weighed at only 100lbs. but fought like a tiger.
Later in the day the flagship scored a second billfish release with this sweet Sailfish.
Even though it’s Yellowfin Tuna season, that didn’t stop Captain Carlos from walloping this awesome Dorado on July 8:
Backed up with some more reasonably sized Yellowfin Tunas, this was a excellent haul for the Discoverer.
Nick Czerok’s group had a great send off with Captain Alex reporting nice Rooster Fish and Sailfish releases.
Here’s what Nick had to say on Facebook: “I’d like to welcome Jess to the billfish club. Released her first pacific sailfish today. She also did her first triple header. First yellowfin tuna, first rooster-fish and first sailfish. And as tradition, I made her jump in the water after the sail. Another great day in Costa Rica.”
Mike Winner had a big day on the Discoverer as Captain Carlos kept them on the fish all day long.
Nice work by Mate Kevin (on loan from the Harvester) handling the safe release of this monster Sailfish.
