Marlin, Costa Rica fishing,

Wow is the best way to describe our #fishing right now. In the last 5 days we have landed 18 blue #marlin with the average size being 350lb. We have also seen the biggest #Marlin in my 7 years at the lodge with a 600lb+ blue and a 500lb black. In the 5 day period we also boated over 100 sailfish with a few dorado mixed in. Inshore is steady as well

Call for a trip special on the Contender 32st for April 21-24 don’t miss it while its hot.

Next year season is already filling up so if you thinking about a trip and want specific dates please call and make a reservation
