Enjoyed a full day of deep water fishing with Skeet and his crew. Two dads and two teenagers. What a great "once in a lifetime" experience for the kids. They each caught a sailfish....one about 80 lbs, one about 100 lbs. The crew did all the work, we relaxed on the boat's upper deck, enjoyed the few, consumed lots of... More

Raised 3 of 5 sailfish and 1 Blue Marlin. Capt Skeet is a Pro and the Bushwacker is a great boat. We had a great experience and really enjoyed the day. Highly recommend Skeet and the Bushwacker if you visit the Tamarindo area!

We fished with Captain Skeet on Bushwacker St. Patrick's Day. The boat is a tried and true 42' Bertram-- super clean. The wind was howling everywhere north of Tamarindo, so Skeet ran south, got us out of the wind and the whitecapping, and put us on the fish- 6 Pacific sails in one hour span- 6 in 60. All 7... More

We booked a trip with Bushwacker early in January not realizing that there can be a problem with winds at that time of the year. Captain Skeet was very accomodating and shifted our schedule by a day to find the best weather conditions that were available while we were there. Also, we fished further South than where they normally fish... More

We booked a full day of fishing with Skeet and his crew. Even though the water was very rough, we had a fantastic time catching fish. Skeet is amazing and his boat is extremely well maintained. The equipment he uses all great. I will definitely use Skeet again the next time I go fishing in this area.

Just returned from my 5th fishing trip with Captain Skeet, Daniel and Jose on the Bushwhacker. On this trip we caught Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi-Mahi and, of course, lots of Sailfish. About 30 lbs of beautiful Ahi steaks came back with me this time!!! Skeet and his crew fish hard. Great bait, top of the line gear,... More

I've been fishing with Skeet for almost 10 years at least once or twice a year with my father and we are continually impressed. The Bushwacker is a great boat for recreational or tournament fishing, small or large groups, and experienced or novice anglers. Skeet is hard core dedicated to find the fish. If they are there, he will find... More

On my first trip out of the country, I was amazed from start to finish! While out on our all day trip, my friends and I were treated so well. Captain Skeet is a natural at knowing where to go for the big catches! This was my first fishing trip and to say that I was thrilled is an understatement.... More
