Let’s start with one of Americana Sportfishing’s repeat clients, Tracy Malone. On a full-day charter December 7 with Captain Alex Holden on the 32ft Miss-Behav’in out of Los Sueños Marina, Tracy and two buddies released 29 Sailfish – that’s right, twenty-nine! – and also caught a nice Mahi-Mahi for dinner, when we can be certain they did some real celebrating.
More from Los Sueños… A really fruitful two days for Captain Carlos Arguedas on the 28ft Wing Man with a client who wanted to hook his own fish. On the first day they went 5-25 on Sailfish; the next day 21-39 on Sailfish, and caught three Dorado. As well as Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna are showing up. Captain Juan Carlos Fallas on the 42ft Spanish Fly not only released 18 Sailfish, but caught 12 Yellowfin Tuna between 20 and 40 lbs (photo).
Meanwhile, Captain James Smith, 42ft Dragin Fly, achieved an IGFA Grand Slam this week, releasing a Striped Marlin, a Black Marlin, and 14 Sailfish on a full day charter.
Just south of Los Sueños the bite has been equally good. Out of Pez Vela Marina in Quepos, Captain Jesus Montero on the 44ft Makaira, released 10 Sailfish, and caught eight Yellowfin Tuna and a Dorado. Moving north, up in Guanacaste, despite the winds, boats are finding fish. Captain Skeet Warren, 42ft Bushwacker out of Flamingo, released a Blue Marlin, a Sailfish, and boated five nice Dorado.
