We shared a charter and had a fabulous day fishing with Captain Mike and Jose. The Captain and deckhand were very professional. No sooner did we get out to sea and Jose put baited the hooks the lines were cast we had the first Sailfish. For a while they were coming so fast and furious that the guys were getting... More

Me and my mate pent a day out inshore fishing with Quepos Fish Adventure and Capt. Johnny. Was an absolute fantastic day. We managed to land mutiple big Roosterfish despite being told it wasnt the best time of year for them. But Capt Johnny knows his stuff to the max and got us onto our first Roosterfish within about 20... More

We booked two days offshore and one day inshore. My Father Brother and I fish together once a year. Normally we go to Las Cabos, but this year we went to Costa Rica. The reason was to catch Roster Fish. We saw the reports of sailfish offshore and thought this would be a good filler between the Dorado. First day... More

My son and I booked 2 offshore and 1 inshore trip at the end of June. The first day offshore was with Capt. John and Alex. They are a great team and a lot of fun. 9am we were hooked up and my son brought in a 116" sailfish. Then we fished for bait and were able to EACH catch... More

I want to thank owner John S, captain John W, and mate Alex, for the most incredible day fishing my sons and I have ever had. This is slow season, but they did everything possible for us, and we managed to catch one big sailfish, and had another bite but lost it. We spent a couple of hours bottom fishing,... More

Just got back from Costa Rica and fishing INSHORE with Capt Johnny. I feel compelled to share my experiences. I fished Thurs (Aug 7) this week. Thursday I went out with Father in law, and two sisters. Now, before we left for Costa Rica I did my research and July-October are the slowest months- that's not a fishing charter's responsibility.... More

My girlfriend and I did a full day offshore fishing trip on August 9th. All we wanted to do was catch sailfish. We went out on the 32ft Stress Reeliever with Capt. Mike and Johnny. We went out about an hour and half before we started trolling. We caught a Mahi Mahi right away and lost another. Then had a... More

You get what you pay for but 500 $ was the best deal. We go out 400 YARDS from the marina there is 4 poles, 3 for fishing and one for bait, Johnny (Captain) says only two rods out is best. There are 4 of us???? two hours we caught nothing. Move to some rocks in the water which were... More

Inshore fishing was very slow, many boats out, nobody catching fish. ALL the other Quepos Boats stayed inshore doing circles for nothing, Johnny called me and without charging more, we took these guys to an offshore trip where they caught 40 fish. We didn't make any money on this trip as we took these guys 13 miles offshore to make... More

The roosterfish boat apparently broke just before we showed up at the dock. We were set up with another captain by Johnny and caught one small spanish mackerel in seven hours of fishing. After trying to catch bait with very little luck we tried bottom fishing, but just caught very small trigger fish. Living on Padre Island you catch these... More

Sorry guys. We have a Suzuki DF175 4 storke outboard on our inshore boat, and in the morning before the trip, while we were fueling up, the motor started making noise. We don't go out with motor problems, so since I knew these guys were already coming, I found them another boat. The problem is we have really nice equipment... More

Excellent trip. Spent two days deep sea fishing targetting different species. On day one we targeted bill fish and dorado. We hooked up and landed two nice sail fish, hooked up and broke off a Marlin and hooked up and landed a nice dorado. During this time of the year locals report that fishing is generally "slow". I have to... More
