EPIC fishing in Costa Rica

01.24.12

Yellowfin tuna are efficient predators and incredible fighters.

Carrie and I recently converged near Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica, with a group of friends for a little fishing and to celebrate the 40th birthday of longtime friend and fishing buddy, Jake.

Although my first preference is to grab a fly rod and stand in knee-deep water, it’s always a nice change of pace to use conventional tackle to chase big, powerful fish in blue water. On this trip we were treated with 3 EPIC days of inshore and offshore fishing in Golfo Dulce (“sweet gulf”) and the nearby Pacific Ocean.

We hope the idea of some warm weather fishing in the middle of January will help soothe any winter blues you may be experiencing now. Or, it may just make them more painful? Well either way, we hope you enjoy!

By the way, our guide was Cory of Tropic Fin Adventures. I’d fish with him again in a heartbeat… does anyone turn 40 next year?

(More to come on jungle hiking, monkeys, flat tires, injured rental cars, surfing, tree climbing and waterfall repelling in Costa Rica (be ready if you go… it’s always an adventure on the Osa Peninsula), then on to cool weather and coffee plantations in the mountains near Boquete, Panama.)
