The first three months of 2012 have flown by and we have had a mixed bag of fishing. January started out great! We had lots of Tarpon and a few really nice Snook. February we had some great days of fishing with big numbers jumped and boated. Toward the end of February we had a winter storm that pushed down through the USA and caused some rough seas and rain. The first part of March was typical with some high seas and rain, but still some great days of fishing. We have truly had an international clientele for 2012! Anglers from Russia, Argentina, Brazil, Africa, Canada, Poland, USA and Venezuela have tested their angling skills here in the famous waters of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica!

The Snook run has been phenomenal this year! Lots of Snook in the mid to high twenty pound range and one Monster Snook of over 46 pounds caught by George Ferguson of New Jersey. Only a handful of people have ever caught an Atlantic Snook in the mid to high 40 pound range. What a trophy fish! This was George's first ever Snook! All of us Snook fishermen are green with envy!!!

The last two weeks of fishing have been stupendous! Big numbers of Tarpon jumped and boated and a lot of monster Tarpon in the 150 lb range. The Tarpon have started to spawn a little late this year.But, make no mistake, the large schools of hungry Tarpon are here! A lot of our boats. are catching double digits in the mornings! Most of the boats have enjoyed hooking three to 4 Tarpon at once with only two anglers fishing! Great Action and sore muscles! We still have a few choice spots left for our spring season.
