From our White Water Marine event last week — a killer whale with its baby. Check it out the baby she has a turtle in its mouth! Only in Costa Rica!
The annual White Water Marine tournament was held after the New Year holiday and it was a blast with a lodge full of east coasters competing for the prize title. Offshore, there were triple digit yellowfin tuna with the biggest one caught at 180 lbs and many in the 80-110 lb range.
Check out some amazing footage shot by Matt Rissell of a jumping blue marlin. We are averaging one blue marlin a day right now at Zancudo Lodge — a very good start to the season!
We broke in our new Contender Boats Inc. 32st today and experienced a wide open tuna bite. Our biggest tuna was around 110 pounds but most fish caught were in the 40lb-50lb class. It’s going to be a fantastic season! Stay tuned and enjoy photos from today’s trip below.
It is just one week away from our 2019/2020 season opening and we are all so excited to ring in this new year. A new Contender, electronics and lodge improvements and top the list of upgrades for this year.
