"So... The 700+ pound black marlin broke the line before we could get him into the boat. However, we were able to catch, photograph, and release the 400+ pound blue marlin. My son also caught a real nice 12 pound rainbow bass. Volcano Arenal erupted on us while we were fishing. Volcanic ash floated down upon us like small snowflakes. We then brushed off the ash (figuratively and literally) and returned to our fishing. The photo of the volcano was taken immediately after it stopped erupting. Terrific vacation."

"HI, just wanted to let you know that we had a great time. Even with flight delays, which got us to Arenal Springs late, we still got up at 5am to go fishing. Everything at that resort was perfect. Our trip to the coast was outstanding, the resort, people there and the two days of deep-sea fishing was out of this world, something we will never forget. We caught 7 sailfish and 9 Mai Mai, which we cooked one at the resort. No Marlin, the captain said the Mahi Mahi were hogging the bait, it didn’t matter, we’re hooked on that kind of fishing. We will tell people about your company and give you a great recommendation."
-Ed and Chris

"Hi Ed, Fishing,weather,pickups from Arenal to Manuel Antonio were all great. Weather was clear for pictures of Arneal Volcanio. We caught rainbow bass and muchaca. In Quepos we went out the first day 45 miles out and each caught a nice sailfish and I also caught a 300 pound blue marlin. The next day we fished closer to shore off Manuel Antonio and each caught two rooster fish. I will send you some pictures when I get a chance. Thank you !"
-Larry and Cory
