Fishing June & July 2012
Ben Crabtree was fishing for two days on board our LA CHILA-G boat. He has two days of good fishing and caught many different species including sails, wahoo, dorado, roosterfish and others.
This day, Eric Rudge and his wife were fishing with us on board our CORMORAN boat for a full day and here their feedback:
"Just wanted to say thanks for an amazing time out on the water last Thursday. My wife and I went out on the Cormoran with Miguel and Louis. I could not have asked for a better crew. Capt. Miguel definitly knew where the fish were and Louis worked harder than any deckhand I've ever been out with. Everything was awesome! From picking us up from out hotel to the beer and food, and of course my Sailfish!. Everything was first class! Please pass my thanks on to Miguel and Louis. They are a great team and gave us memories that will last a lifetime. We are already planning a return trip to Costa Rica and can't wait to be back out on the Cormoran! Thought I would attach a few pictures from our trip. Feel free to use them for marketing purposes if you wish."

Fishing has been good for both : inshore and offshore lately. Good sailfishing, almost all boats/captains have been reporting between 4-8 sailfish almost all charters; however, sometimes a few charters with little success; you know, fishing is fishing does not matter how is the fishing.
