After two solid days of offshore billfishing, the Captain Sergio group stayed inshore with clients John Martinez, Judy Martinez, Jerold Long, and Christine Long.


The strikes were constant over the eight hour trip with 13 Snappers caught along with other fun fish.

This nice-sized Rainbow Runner is certainly a tasty treat.



After loading up on Red Snappers (big and small), the crew hit paydirt with this 80lbs. Amberjack:

Everyone lined up to take a picture with this beastie.

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!

Captain Sergio Atanes assembled a large group from the Tampa, FL area for an all-inclusive week of fishing, safari tours, and big family fun!

 After getting settled at Nosara Paradise Rentals, the posse enjoyed dinner at the variety of restuarants in Playa Guiones.

Throughout the week the fishing was on full-bore!


They ended up with 49 Sailfish releases through the course of the week, but there was more going on than just fishing; they also plied the waters of the Rio Nosara via Kayak.

As always the highlight of their experience was the Horseback Mountain tour featuring a tour of the Hernandez family farm.


The food alone is worth the ride, and of course the Pura Vida hospitality was in full effect from Sra. Hernandez.

After a full week of excitement, they closed out their time with Beers at sunset at Playa Guiones.

What a great group! If you want to book a similar trip, check out our Large Group Package page for all the details.

The Discoverer delivered the goods for Sergio’s Costa Rica Adventurers Loren and Viv Keen, James and Christie Lawson, and Frank and Susan Kinsinger.

After some early morning Sailfish releases, they scored a big hit with this Double Sailfish Release:

Great work by the big battleship Discoverer.

Sergio’s group stayed hot on June 9! The Wanderer and Discoverer seized upon a bait ball frenzy near shore scored a ton of fun-fightin’ Rainbow Runnner, some with decent size to them.

The big one of the group came late in the day as both boats were just about to pull up anchors and head for home…goes to show why you always leave a bait in the water, even when your are packing up!

The great fishing continues for Captain Sergio Atanes’ Costa Rica Adventure group. On June 8 the Discoverer welcomed Jack Walker, Alice Trautman, Sue Garcia and Beverly Lanier for some great inshore action. 

A great trio of Cubera Snappers is the perfect filet haul to keep the party going on shore.

Great catches by Captain David!

Sergio’s group of Tampa anglers have found excellent action on the inshore reefs outside Garza Bay. On June 8 the Wanderer scored this excellent specimen of Rooster Fish:

We released this beauty as usual, but this group didn’t leave empty-handed. They got this monster Pinfish, and also released a small Dorado…c’mon back when you’re 50lbs. buddy!
