Re: Action in Costa Rica.

Pretty nice weather during the last 2 days, blue water...
Caught today 2 dorado at about 30 miles.
We spotted by chance there a big drifting log with baitfish, sharks and pelagics. I missed a huge wahoo at the time it was taking off: I was playing the flasher and instinctively felt a fish was in my back observing me. I turned over and check the surface, nothing at the horizon except the big log. I suddenly spotted a fish head wich exceed the log end. I slowly swam up to the surface, the wahoo was completely motionless and hidden behind the log. I could not shoot. At the time I get close to it, the wahoo took off like a missile, I shot the fish but the shaft hit the caudal fin and it vanished...
Saw a lot of friendly dolphin schools, tuna empty.
Pura Vida!

Yes! a little school made of max 2 to 3 lb fish. Was dreaming about massive AJ there, but the depth was about 3500 meter depth and it should be exceptional to see AJ so far from the coast. ( no pinnacle).

Re: Action in Costa Rica.

Back to the Nicoya coast... probably 5 days b.w. hunting if mother nature would agree!
DAY 1:
Pretty lucky to get today a sea becalmed and a possible nice UW visi. Last week was windy+ green water. However we have to boat to about 25miles off the coast , there is blue ( dirty) water.
The main goal was again to spot yf tuna. They are usually found swimming far offshore and close to a dolphin school.
After about 5 hours patrolling in vain, we could spot a little spinner dolphin school: They cruised to the boat. Suddenly we could observe a dorsal fin swimming fast among the dolphins.
I jumped from the boat and checked the school. A massive sailfish came fast at about 20 feet range, changed suddenly its path and took off. The cpt yelled from the deck: Just at the time I got back to the boat, a marlin was swimming under the surface in my direction. It seemed to me to be blue...
I shot the fish at about 12 feet range and the fight lasted about one hour: Well known that stripped marlin are the toughest of the marlins, a lot of stamina and strength.
On the deck I could check the shaft: it hit the gill in the middle, but at the time I pulled the trigger, the fish changed its path in a split of second and the shaft hit oblique. Was Amazing to observe the remora stuck to the fish and multiple parasites on the whole marlin body.
One's say marlin jump out of the water usually to get rid of these parasites.
Pura vida!

Re: Action in Costa Rica.

DAY 2:
Water is again ugly inshore and we have to head on far off the coast at about 30 miles...
And boating again for hours to the tuna party: Nada.
I was told that 2 weeks ago a huge fishing (South Korean) cargo made a net fishing razzia (tuna+ dolphins) there ...including in the 30 miles limit.
We spotted by chance a dead turtle drifting in the upwelling current. Lot of bait fish, small bonito ( these fish make the marlins crazy) there.
I did diving non stop about 3 hours there, playing the fish with the flasher:
3 dorado (a nice over 40lb)
1 wahoo
and a (shy) black marlin short visit...
Blue water hunting needs to be patient...
Pura vida!
