Fishing here at The Zancudo Lodge in beautiful Costa Rica is ON FIRE this week!   Over the past few days, every boat has been landing multiple hook ups on Blue Marlin.  Huge schools of tuna are feeding on massive bait balls with some of the fish breaking that 100lb mark.  Dorados are everywhere with each boat releasing double digits daily.  Last but not least, rooster fishing is off the charts with Captain Tito ringing the bell with 35 fish in one day; the largest being 45lb.

  • 35 Roosterfish released in one day
  • 18 Blue Marlin Released over 3 day period
