"Just wanted to take a moment to give our highest regards and appreciation to Captain Bryan, Hansel and Steven who made the charter aboard the "Scatterbrain" our best yet! The boat was outstanding and the fishing was absolutely epic. 2 sails, 1 dorado and more tuna than I remember. It was a perfect day. As always, thank you for your help and stellar job in arranging this for us. We'll be sure to call on this boat again." Bryan - February 2018
"My son and two very good friends fished the Scatterbrain. Lots of fish, great boat, super captain and crew. We have been fishing Los Suenos for many years and this boat and crew is as good as it gets. We know the difference.” Jim - January 2018
"Our group had a wonderful time with Jake and the crew of Pescadora! We really appreciate how responsive you’ve been during the booking process. Always nice to have someone respond quickly and professionally. Thanks again for your help!" Matt - January 2018
"Truly a memorable fishing trip…….2 dorado, 8 sails and a black to the boat. Kevin and Jose are some of the best crew I have ever witnessed and Mainor is one heck of a captain. He can spot a ghost in the dredge! Worked two doubles and got all fish to the boat, including the black and a sail on one double. Pescadora is clean and roomy. There were 6 adults and 2 children on our trip, plus crew. Never really felt cramped. Our only complaint was that some of us had trouble being able to drink a beer from sore arms!" David - January 2018
"Just got back from great fishing FADS/Seamounts 3 night, 2 days 100 miles offshore from Quepos. I read about it in fishing magazines, was trip of a lifetime. The crew, Captain Mainor and mates Kevin and Jose, were the best. Is my 6th Costa Rica fishing trip and was the best. The Pescadora is a beautiful boat as well with first class equipment, good food and sleeping accommodations ideal for 3 fisherman. The package was arranged by Kelly Curcio of Blue Water Sportfishing Charters. She always does a great job and made this dream trip come true!" Dr. M - December 2017
"We had the best two days we have ever had in Costa Rica. Day one we caught three yellowfins, a couple of dolphin and a 350 pound black marlin. On the Geaux fly we caught 13 yellowfins, one dolphin and a 118” 450lb blue marlin. Both crews are outstanding and very fun to fish with."
“Thank you Kelly it was a great fishing trip your captains were very nice along with their crew members we really enjoyed ourselves and we will definitely refer you in the future to anyone we know they may be looking to fish in Costa Rica.”
"Cindy- I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for such an awesome trip you put together for us last week. To put it plainly, it was the best fishing trip that we've ever had. We ended the trip with 81 sails, a mahi, a wahoo, and hooked up with 2 marlin. The crews were fantastic, the gear was flawless, the lunches on board were great, and the boats were a super smooth ride. From what I gathered around the dock, we out fished every other operation down there on all three days. I speak for the whole group when I say that we'll be talking about this one for a while. Thanks again for running such a great operation down there. It was great to meet you! We'll definitely get the group together to start looking at dates for next year."
“We fished the Spanish Fly on Jan 4th and the Sea Fly on the 5th. All of the crew was great on both of the boats. They worked hard to hook fish and they worked hard to land fish. In addition, they treated us as guest and were a pleasure to get to know. I would absolutely hire these boats in the future and would recommend them to others.”
“Wonderful day fishing, crew was very friendly and professional. Fire Fly brought in 8 sailfish, 6 mahi and one beautiful blue marlin. We could not have asked for a more perfect day.”
