The big fish just keep on coming. Today every boat caught a blue marlin with a total of 19 over the past three days. Tons of monster dorado are keeping both the blue marlin and anglers happy. The tuna action remains consistent for those wishing to target them and we’re starting to see the sailfish action pick up. Sailfish numbers will only increase as the season progresses.

This was truly a most tremendous sight. This melee was at least 1/2 mile wide and 1/2 mile in length. It was a massive feeding Frenzy. We saw hundreds of Tuna and only needed one.

Cruising out of The Zancudo Lodge for a day of Costa Rica fishing is one of the most amazing experiences an angler can have in his or her lifetime. The private pier is located on the back side of the lodge and is situated on the entrance to the Rio Coto, a few minutes from the river mouth and is home to their fleet of high-end 32’ Contenders. The mangrove laden riverbanks are teeming with crocodiles and caiman (a safe distance away from the pier). When heading out for a day of fishing the sunrise will literally make you stop and gasp a couple of times. A myriad of aquatic birds like spoonbills, white ibis and tetradactyl-like frigates circling overhead add to the primordial jungle ambience.
