Also clients John, Joe, and Bruce Sabine finished their week of fishing in Nosara by making life miserable for the big Yellowfin Tunas.

Jet Poppers and ceder plugs were the hot lures, and the trio of Tampa anglers had a legendary good time. The fishboxes were so stuffed that they released this 70lbs. Yellowfin.

FishingNosara is pumped to offer Kayak Safari Tours as a new way to explore the Costa Rican wilderness. Also, these brand-new 13′ Ocean Kayaks are the only way to get to the Mangrove Snappers and supersized Snook at the estuary between the Nosara River and the Pacific Ocean.



To test the new vessels we sent the best of the FishingNosara team to explore the river. On Thursday November 11th the fellas put the Kayaks through their paces and scouted many spots for future fishing expeditions.


Captain William made his way to the train bridge overpass to make sure the boys were staying out of trouble. Our crews certainly look out for each other.

Our first Kayak Safari client was Eduardo Barrios on Saturday November 13th. Accompanied by Guide Johnny, Mr. Barrios explored the river and the saw tons of wildlife. Also he did some more preliminary scouting for Snook.



Recently client Hal Breedlove and his group went out with Javier on Thursday November 18th for a 3 hour trip down the river. The saw incredible natural beauty and had an absolutely fantastic time.






Kayak Tours provide an economical way to fish and explore the wilderness of Costa Rica. Check out the Safari Tours section of FishingNosara.com for all the details.

The boys went offshore on Tuesday November 16th and had a field day on the Yellowfins, this time the mack daddy weighed in over 75lbs.

The bite was so thick that eventually they started catching and releasing; unheard of for nice meat fish like these, but there was enough tonnage that ice consumption was a concern.

Captain Eduardo and the legendary fish-catching Nice n’ Tight are back in the water and the fish are already running for cover. It’s a futile effort, because once again Captain Eduardo’s clients are going home with full fish boxes and big smiles.

On Tuesday November 16th newlyweds Miles and Vanessa Anderson had a fantastic day on the Nice n’ Tight with Captain Eduardo. In no time at all they yanked a nice 25lbs. Yellowfin Tuna off the inshore reefs.


Later, the line popped off as a massive Amberjack challenged Miles to a fight. With Captain Eduardo guiding the action, Miles Anderson prevailed and the happy couple celebrated their last day in Nosara with a Tuna filet lunch and an Amberjack dinner.

On behalf of the FishingNosara family, Congratulations and Good Luck to the Andersons.

John Harbord, Bruce Sabine, and Joe Ronnlof represent some of the best anglers in Clearwater, FL and on Monday November 15th they went on their first of four full days of fishing on the Wanderer. While these fellas are used to pulling Snook and Tarpon out of the north side of Tampa Bay, they were more than ready to tackle the big Costa Rican meat fish.

On their first day Bruce was the hot rod catching two magnificent Cuberra Snappers. As with Matty’s Broomtail the day before, these fish were given to the villagers in Garza to make one heck of a sopa de pescado (fish soup).

November 14 was a big day for the Wanderer. In the morning, Matty and client Eduardo Barrios caught two little White Tunas, then deep jigged for a nice 25lbs. White Tuna. Then Matty hooked up this massive 50lbs. Cabrilla (Broomtail Grouper).

The fight was short but violent, and about three minutes after this picture was taken, Matty took a 45 minute nap in the cabin.

After picking up Craig at Garza, they went 25 miles offshore seeking the blue water.

After boating several 20-30lbs. Yellowfin Tunas, Eduardo hooked up a beautiful Striped Marlin. He put on a show, but managed to cut the line off on a stray piece of driftwood less than 100 feet from the boat. Eduardo did everything right, but the Stripey got away.


All told they caught eight Yellowfins with the big one weighing 40lbs. Great trip!
