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

Fishing continues to be HOT at Zancudo Lodge

This season we have had the best Blue Marlin Bite since I purchased the lodge 7 years ago. Over 150 blues have been landed so far. Carter Andrews has just left the lodge and had great offshore fishing landing 5 Marlin in two days. His new show The Obsession of Carter Andrews has already started airing on the Outdoor network. Check it out it’s one of the best new fishing shows. http://theobsessionofcarterandrews.com

We also have had great success with our fly fisherman this year both sailfish, roosters, marlin and dorados have been landed on the fly. I also want to thank the guys from White Water Boats in New York who just left and put on a fantastic event.

Fishing is good. Its sunny and 85˚ in Costa Rica. Come see why 80% of our clients keep coming back. We have few spots left in late February and March.
