How we fish?
We will fish any way you like to fish.
Normally during sailfish season we fish four trolling baits two dredges and pull two teaser.
For Sea Mount fishing we prefer to bait and switch just pull for the teaser and two dredges.
We also have spent a lot of time fly-fishing and have been on the team for several world records.
We are very seasoned in light tackle fishing also.
If you choose to fly fish or light tackle we recommend bring you own tackle.
During Sailfish season the weather is very calm and very little to no rain. We have never canceled a trip for weather in 18 years of fishing. Here is Costa Rica from November thru May it’s slick calm glassy.
During the Sea Mount season from April thru January is rainy season also with some storms starting in June mostly in the afternoon.
As for the sea conditions at worst 5 to 8 feet, that happens 2 or 3 days out 50 days fishing, 40% of the days are 2 to 4 feet the rest of the time is very calm.
