Marlin Joven



Fishing report December 2016

This is Erick Heigold from Stay in Costa Rica, at Los Sueños Resort and Marina.


Some changes have been made through this month on our boat the Sunny One, Captain Ismael Oporta is no longer part of the crew at Stay on Costa Rica. One of our favourite Captains of all time, Captain Walton Smith is behind the wheel of the Sunny One once again, and he began his new chapter with quite a count of 3 Marlins and 2 Sails.


The Sunny One went out 15 times, more than last month, this is because of the high season starting to peak, getting ready for the months of January and February, we will notice an increase in Marlin and Sail, it is the prime time for both of these species. I hope you are here by then and don’t miss out on the excitement.


Sunny One Count


Marlin 9

Sail 23

Dorado 26

Tuna 8


Comments like “Awesome! We love our crew and caught lots of fish. So much fun! You guys know what you´re doing”, motivate us to fish with passion day to day.


And, ¨Another great day on the Sunny One. Added a beautiful yellow fin Tuna to our 2 day collection of fish. Jeremy and Walter worked very hard to make sure our day was enjoyable. Great guys! Thank you again Sunny One¨.

Emi with Tuna

Well Im going to jump back to March 10th with Mr. Issacson fishing on Sunny One… They hook up a monster Dorado, Capt. Walton thinking this could be a World Record hails up some people on the radio and reports a 95 Lb. Dorado that they just hooked up. He seems to have gotten some misinformation and is told the record is 120Lbs. Which finding out later is not true, it seems the record is around 87Lbs. However by then the fish has been consumed. But the good news is some photos were taken of the weigh-in… so I’m waiting to see what is going to happen if anything – will keep you posted. At any rate, we know Sunny One bagged a world Record Dorado. Congrats Issacsons. Advance to 13:24 on the time line to see the monster dorado.

That will wrap it until next time.You can see the record Dorado and other Sunny One fishing action by going to Remember the best deals on luxury Condos and Villas in Costa Rica and of course some of the Best Sportfishing on Earth – check out our Web.

Until next report, keep your tip up & catch’em up
