Captain Eduardo’s performance has been outstanding the last month, but you must look past the catch count and poundage to really understand what make Captain Eduardo special. Check out this email we received at FishingNosara last week…it is unedited by our staff and represents a true testimonial:

WOW, what a thrill the fishing trips with Captain Eduardo were during our Nosara Costa Rica vacation this past week. Yes I said “trips”, we had so much fun our first half-day we went back the next week for a second half-day on the Nice n’ Tight.

I have to start with the whole group in the office of Fishing Nosara from Craig and the reservation I made a few months ago to Manuel in the Nosara office. He made me and my family feel so welcome and was so helpful. This is such a top notch outfit!

What can I say about Captain Eduardo, not just a great Captain, but an equally fantastic human being. He represents everyone in Costa Rica so well. We didn’t feel like we just went fishing, we made a friend. My boys are 10, 12, and 16 and he really made this fishing easy for them to do.

As far as the fishing, we got off to a slow start on the first trip, but hit some Mahi Mahi about 2 hours in, and we landed two and lost one big one. Then we caught a really nice sized Yellowfin tuna. We caught and released a big Needle Fish. In our five hours we saw hundreds of porpoises, manta rays jump out of the water, a marlin fly in the air, and a few sea turtles.

On our second trip it was just me and the two older boys. Twenty minutes out of port we hit tuna by using popper lures on the top water and in three hours landed 7 tuna, 2 Bonitas and a Rainbow Runner. We were beat and don’t think we could have reeled any more in so we headed in early.

Man, were the tuna fillets awesome and a local cook made Ceviche for us with the Mahi Mahi. It was out of this world.

I don’t know I can say “thanks” enough to cover how much fun we had and how much we look forward to visiting again.
