Charles & Melanie from Against The Grain Charters in Florida joined us last week Offshore Fishing in Quepos Costa Rica.
The guys had a blast experiencing fishing in Costa Rica for the first time. The day started off slowly but all that changed quickly when Capt. Manuel Gabuardi found a floating platform which was loaded with bait & larger fish. On the first pass of the platform there were football sized Yellow Fin Tuna all over the teasers and huge Dorado Swimming visibly below. Charles caught some Tuna on the Popper on the bow of the boat and then the guys caught two HUGE Dorado which tipped the scales to 65lb & 70lb! Wow!
Charles was looking for his first Marlin & almost got it only to lose a nice sized Blue whilst live baiting. The guys catch plenty of Atlantic Sailfish in Florida but this was the first Pacific Sailfish release for Melanie!
1 for 4 on Billfish catching 1 Sailfish & losing a Blue Marlin
2 HUGE Dorado 70lb & 65lb plus smaller fish
