April Fools’ Day was no joke for client Curtis and Liz Coley! These guys put the chokehold on a swarm of Sailfish and didn’t let up until the big billfish tapped out.

Captain David tracked a feeding school of fish and that led to four big Sails on the trip, with Mate Kevin seeing to the safe release of all billfish.

These Jacksonville anglers showed off the dominance that has made Northeast Florida legendary in these waters.

“Dear Craig and Matty,”

“Curtis and I had a “once in a lifetime” trip to your place in Nosara! The fishing trips were fabulous with Capt. David & Kevin on the barroom brawler Explorer (10 sails total for Chuck) and Capt. Carlos on the “pocket knife” Adventurer.  I caught 3 sails on the Explorer and five bonitas and one tuna on the Adventurer. What a special treat to see the beautiful reefs jut out of the Blue Pacific (which I had never seen before).”

“We also took a horseback ride with Rafael and had lunch with Jesus, his Mama.  She prepared a delicious native lunch, and it was a pleasure meeting them both.”

“Also, Cumi, Marino, Javier and Ahias took great care of us!  I would be remiss without saying how much we adored Freddie and Jenny, too.  Freddie hauled us to and from the boats to Garza, Jenny did our laundry and cleaned up Casa Jardin during the week, and Jenny had fried chicken as a treat on one of our fishing trips.  Everyone was very amenable to answering any questions we had.  We put several miles on the Safari Cart, and our transfers to and from the San Jose airport were impeccable.  One big happy family.”

“It was an amazing adventure which we will always cherish.  You run a top-notch operation, and we will recommend Paradise Rentals & Fishing Nosara to anyone who is headed to Costa Rica.  Best wishes in your future endeavors and your new boat, the Discoverer.  Thanks again for everything!!”
