My wife and I just returned from four (4) days of fishing with Capt Skeet and his fine crew. Even though Capt Skeet said the fishing was slow, we had an epic time, and over our 4 days fishing we were 1 for 2 on blue marlin (275 lbs), 20+ yellowfin tuna in the 25-35 lb range, 9+ mahi maki, and 7 sailfish. Capt Skeet allowed me to use my 16 wt fly rod to catch quite a few yellowfin tuna, at least until my arms couldn't handle any more. He and his crew worked super hard to make sure we were successful. The Bushwacker is a comfortable sport fishing vessel, and the crew made some pretty tasty sandwiches every day for lunch! My wife and I had a fantastic time and sincerely enjoyed being hosted by Capt. Skeet. We plan on fishing with him again, and I would recommend booking with him over anyone else in the region.

I have been fishing the Pacific waters off Panama and Costa Rica for over 24 years and have fished with every major fishing outfitter there is. Captain Skeet has more knowledge of the fish and the waters than all of them combines. He is a true professional who is willing to share his knowledge and fishing skills.He is also deeply passionate about your group catching fish. We went on the water with Captain Skeet for three days in mid August and we slammed the sail fish , mahi and even bottomed fish for grouper. Myself and friends cannot wait to get back on Bushwacker and nail some Blues. Thank you Capt Skeet see you this winter.

We fished with Captain Skeet on the Bushwacker for the fifth time and as always he did not disappoint. He and his crew are extremely professional and the and the Bushwacker is comfortable and setup to catch fish.

We love Flamingo Bay and the surrounding area. Check out the Bushwacker and Capt. Skeet.

Captain skeet and his crew on the Bushwacker were all very very professional and knowledgeable. It was an all around top notch private fishing charter from start to finish. Possibly a day we’ll never forget. We had a great day going 2/3 on Mahi and 2/3 on Blue Marlin!! He is definitely the boat to use when coming to this area to visit!! Regardless of the day we had you can see he did his absolute best to get on us the fish and his mates were just as good and quick with rebaiting and getting lines in the water. Highly recommend. -Mike

My son and I had a full day of fishing off shore with Skeet and his crew. Caught 6 sail fish, 1 Mahi and an Albacore. Boat, gear, skipper and crew were all first class. Fishing with a pro meant that we could catch versus trolling out over areas that weren’t productive.

Honest and honorable! Important when you’re paying. All safety equipment and electronics are first rate. You’re not fishing with an amateur.

I hope to get back and catch some Marlin with Skeet and crew.

Captain Skeet and crew run a world class sportfishing charter. We spent a fantastic two days on the Bushwacker.
I have fished many charters in many locations and this one tops my list!
The crew works very hard and are constantly trying to get you on the fish.

Skeet and his deck hands are the best of the best. Fishing trip of a lifetime. If you go fishing in Flamingo Bay Costa Rica I would always fish with Skeet on the Bushwacker. We will be going back for sure. Best experience ever. Thanks Capt. Skeet. You are an amazing Guide.

I have fished all over the world, with top captains and winning boats, both competitively and leisurely, and the Bushwacker and Capt Skeet are among the best! Part of my family and another family to Costa Rica on vacation that included a day of fishing. This 42 Bertram is a fish catching machine! It's perfectly maintained, the tackle, mates, food, and equipment were all incredible. Great family day coupled with great fishing. We had 15 sailfish in the baits, caught and released 11. We WILL be back and ONLY on this boat again soon! Tight lines......Kelley Erwin, Houston, TX.

I just fished with Skeet for my 2nd time. I went by myself this time around and i caught 9 Sailfish! While i was fighting one sail i had 4 sails swimming behind it. Another time i had 2 sails swimming behind my fish. We had a Wahoo take our bait and a Dorado come check it out.

Skeet is hands down the best capt i have fished with outside the US. He has 2 very good deckhands and his boat and equipment are top notch. I'm already planning our trip for 2017 with Skeet!

During 2015 I was fortunate enough to fish a week in Quepos, a week at Los Suenos and four days in the Tamarindo area. Although all the Captains that I fished with were outstanding, Captain Skeet on the Bushwacker at Playa Flamingo was a level above anyone who I have ever fished with (including the U.S.A.). The 42 Bertram is a great ride, the tackle was the highest quality and the crew was outstanding. But the highlight was Capatin Skeet! He really knows how to fish! More importantly he is a pleasure to have as your Captain. Being out on the water 8+ hours a day you get to know people, you can tell that he really enjoys his profession and he wants to make sure that you enjoy the time as well. Spend some time up on the bridge with Captain Skeet for great conversations unbelieable views and top notch fishing
