Fishing Report 1-6 December 2016

As we kick off our 2017 season the inshore bite has been excellent with loads of roosterfish showing up along the coast at Matapalo. Costa Rica scores high on the destination list when it comes to trophy roosters and our guests are having a blast catching some really big fish over the last few days. George Hoffman scored several roosters, including a 60lb. monster “Gallo” on his first day out.
Roger Puccinelli was also here last week with his daughter Kristy. These two anglers experienced some epic action both offshore and inshore. Roger released 2 blue marlin, both in the 200-250 lb. range, a sailfish, 2 good size dorado, several trophy roosterfish, and tuna. Kristy also released her share of roosters inshore.  We will be very busy this month as more and more eager anglers head down to Zancudo Lodge for some big-game fishing action so be sure to tune in for more fishing reports. The bite is on and we’re ready to catch em’ up!

Tight Lines,
