Latest Costa Rica Fishing Reports
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.
