Huge Broomtail Grouper and lots of Marlin - Quepos Report
 
Inshore fishing has been crazy good here with lots of big school of sardines running up and down the coast pulling all the fish out of their caves and rivers. Check out this huge BroomTail Grouper from last week:

In addition to the gruoper, there have been lots of snook around lately too inshore:

Offshore has finally started picking up again for the season. The offshore was a bit slower after the hurricane in November, but finally yesterday we started seeing good fish again. Yesterday Junior released a pair of nice Marlin, 6 dorado and 2 yellow fin tuna.

I've seen a few T-shirts and stickers in the marina, but i don't personally have any info. I have heard of him several times, but I don't think I've seen the boat yet.

the Hooker (G&S) is in marina pez vela, not sure if it available for public charter

to be a legal charter boat here in CR means it must be Costa Rican flagged, which is a whole mess of legal work if the boat is not made here, it means removing it from forgein registry, paying import duty of 33% the value of the vessel, registering it here, and jumping through hoops for a business license, tax reporting inspections etc
not saying people don't charter their boats illegally,I know of plenty that do

Even worse, in Quepos they are dropping the Hammer on US captains that don't have Costa Rican captain licenses. They just quit letting charter captains leave out with the US international captain license, there are a lot of unhappy people here :o
