Exciting new video featuring Zancudo Lodge Chef Cosmo Goss as he explains all the details that make offshore fishing at The Zancudo Lodge, Costa Rica some of the best in the world.
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. Well, I don’t have to tell you what happened next, because you already know. Yes, we got the Grand Slam (my first) and we came home.
Costa Rica is very active in billfish conservation. Local groups like FECOP the sport fishing lobby to the Costa Rican government pressure the restriction of commercial fishing practices that harm fish of touristic interests. Most recently purse seine vessels have been forced out 60 to 100 miles from the coast which has lead to a resurgence of sailfish, marlin and especially yellowfin tuna in the coastal waters
