Frank Weston was staying at the Andaz Papagayo hotel and went fishing with us for 4 days plus a family tour with his family of 4. The first 3 days he was bottom/roosterfishing on board our MAHI-MAHI boat. The first day he caught 7 hamberjacks and one cubera snapper. The second day was not very productive since only caught a hamberjack and one cubera snaper, mainly for the lack of live bait. The third day, on August 10, one more person came along and they had a very productive day again. The last day was on board our LA CHILA-G boat and was also very productive. Here a couple of pics from his trips: andaz papagayo fishing
