Offshore fishing with the Reel In Crew! I have been fishing before in Costa Rica, this is my first time booking with Reel In Sport Fishing and they came through, 3 sailfish, 1 marlin and a couple of nice yellow fin tuna.

Having a captain with 20 years of experience made the difference for our deep-sea fishing trip in Costa Rica. I chartered the 36 Bertram for 2 days. Michael and his crew are excellent at their job. The boat cruised around 26 to 27 knots, got to the fishing grounds around 8:20 am and right away they pulled out the lines. Took us a few minutes of trolling but we finally found a good spot. I caught Sailfish and Dorado, I was very happy with the trip, and it was worth the money.

Amazing offshore adventure with Captain Merlin! Family of 4 fishing deep sea on the 31 ft Bertram, we absolutely recommend this crew, my brother has never fished before and the first mate helped him reel in a big sailfish.

Everything about our fishing charter was excellent, we even arranged for round trip transportation from our hotel. Since offshore was slow, the morning before, we got a call from the owner, and he recommended we do half day inshore. Ended up releasing 2 rooster fish and getting 4 nice red snappers. Very happy with our experience.

Not my first-time fishing in Quepos but I can say this has to be one of my top fishing experiences. I was going to book a regular offshore trip but then I spoke with the Owner and he suggested an overnight trip to the FADs as my goal was to catch a Marlin. We left the dock around 5 pm, spend the night and early morning fishing was on! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, snacks, everything was provided. If you are looking for Marlin Fishing, this is the way to go.

Took my family for a full day inshore, crew was fun to be around, love that the 36 ft boat had air conditioning, it can get pretty warm while fishing in Costa Rica. Boat had lots of drinks and the food was really tasty, it was prepared on the boat. We spent the morning fishing and the afternoon just having fun, cruising around and doing some snorkeling. We had a great time.

This fishing trip was easy to organize, I spoke with Mandel and he recommended I do a half day inshore on the 28 ft boat since my main goal was to target Roosterfish. I had a blast fighting 4 Roosterfish and I was lucky we got 1 Big Red Snapper, took that back to the hotel and I had the chef prepare it fried with some rice and avocado, all around this was top notch experience for me.

The 36 ft Bertram is a great fishing boat and captain Michael is one of the best captains I’ve fished with. Took me straight to the action and within the first 2 hours we were hooking a sailfish. First mate also spoke English which was good as I don’t speak any Spanish. They cooked up a Costa Rican meal, was very good. Rod and reels were in top condition. I’m planning my return trip and I will be in contact for my next charter. Pura Vida
