The north east area around Tortuguero and Barra are where to
In the past most of the tarpon action in the area was in the
rivrs and backwaters but now with more seaworthy boats equipped
with radios and electronics, anglers can get thru the river
mouths to find tarpon for what looks like square miles of them.
Many times every cast will almost land a tarpon.
The big snooks are caught fishing from the beach around the
river mouths mostly on jigs. Also trolling on jigs close to
Most of the lodges now have 23 ft. center consoles and you can

Just a note to thank you for informing us about the fishing boat and
the accommodations in Golfito, Costa Rica. Our trip went extremely well
as all reservations and accommodations were better than expected. We especially
enjoyed the boat we fished on for three (3) days. The boat was called the
Happy Hooker. It is probably one of the most beautiful, well equipped boats
we have ever fished from. We were especially pleased with the Captain and
his crew. They were all very friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable.
The fishing was great also. If you see the crew of the Happy Hooker any
time soon, please give them our regards and tell them we look forward to
fishing with them again in the near future.

Sorry so tardy in replying to your mail. Our trip on the Perfect Hooker
was without fail one of the best fishing charters. Captain Yens and crew
were extremely helpful, accomodating, and knowledgeable. We fish the Florida
Gulf and Atlantic quite a bit and were very please with this charter. The
vessel was beyond expectations and we were all very pleased with our catch.
Hope to return another time to go for Marlin and/or Tuna.
Our visit to Costa Rica was fabulous! We hope to return very soon. The
car rental company was very helpful and convenient, and provided no problems
coming or going. Our only complaint was that we did not have enough time
to do everything.
Thank you for your help and advice. We were very impressed at how easy everything
was. You will be the first that I contact on our return trip.
Thank you, Thank you!!!!
