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!

Mario Hoffman’s group scored big inshore fish with the Explorer on February 11th and 13th.

Early scores of meat fish were welcome in the fishbox, and these Rooster Fish releases were also a thrill:

Also they nabbed one of the larger Rock Snappers that we have seen in a long time:

Great work by Captain Fico on the Explorer!

Eric Weissman and his friend Zev enjoyed great action with Captain David on a pair of trips in mid-February.

After their first trip delivered catches of Pompano and White Tunas, the returned on the 20th to score tasty Yellowfin Tunas:

Great fishing and pictures by Eric Weissman!

The Explorer welcomed a great family for fun fishing action on the 18th.

This big Amberjack and Snapper score led to big smiles all around!

February 19, 2017

The Adventerer scored a wonderful quartet of fish on the 19th with client Ann Viitala.

White Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Jack Crevelle, and this big Pompano…now that’s a haul!

February 18, 2017

Our good friend Scott Hed had a big day on the Adventurer with a Jack Crevelle, White Tuna, and Yellowfin Tuna on the scorecard.

Captain David is on fire this month and shows no signs of letting up…bad news for the fish!

February 14, 2017

Tommy Laborde filled the fishbox in a major way on a 5 hour afternoon trip.

Multiple Tunas and a big Pompano swarmed the Explorer and Captain Fico worked them masterfully.

February 13, 2017

John Difilippo got into town a few days before the rest of his group, so before attacking the blue water on the big boats he chose to gather up meat fish with Captain David.

Nice scores of Yellowfin Tuna, Pompano, and Queen Snapper means that the Difilippo group will be well-fed upon their arrival. Excellent work!

Great day for Mark Sherod on the Harvester…check out this wonderful Sailfish release:


In an email we got from Mark: “The 32′ Harvester is the perfect boat for fishing, large enough to handle any water, agile and nibble enough to keep you on your trophy during the catch.”
“Alex the Captain & Kevin the First Mate, are experienced, they knew exactly what to do at all times. Plus their positive attitudes were a joy to hang with. My wife Sherri wants to adopt them!!”
“These are very large sporting fish used to ruling these waters, if your crew isn’t on their game, these hombres (fish) will make short work of your moment and be gone in a flash. Alex & Kevin were instantly up for the moment. Loved the experience of hanging with them!!”


“Pura Vida”

Excellent fish handling by Mate Juan Carlos to see these beauties safely returned to the water.

February 8, 2017

Mario Hoffman and his group came all the way from Europe to get a crack at Pacific Sailfish, and Captain Fico delivered on back-to-back trips on February 8.

Mission Accomplished!
