I going down there for a week late December this year. I think John arrives before Christmas. I've already booked a boat for three days in the Puerto Jimenez area for jigging and popping. The guy is telling me that we should catch plenty of 50# roosters that time of year. Also he told me that it is common to run across schools of big YF's , some reaching in the 225# range. Grouper and snapper fishing is also very good for jigging in that area.

The drive from Los Suenos to Puerto Jimenez is a nasty 8 hour drive. I'm going to fly from Los Suenos as long as the Marriott confirms my dates. If I do end up at Los Suenos for a couple of days, I will try to book John for one day of billfishing. I'd love to tease them up and just toss swimbaits and pencil poppers to them. I've caught enough pacific sailfish using traditional methods to the point that it now bores me. I want something different.

As I recently heard, if you can fish in Texas, with a little time to get used to a different area, a good Texas sportfisherman can dominate anywhere else.

Tom, I don't know about the Spanish Fly. I was wondering too. I bet the tournament would make a great TV show, so it wouldn't surprise me if it is and they filmed it.

Rooster on popper--now that would be fun.

Ditto Snagged!

Scott - Is that 2nd boat, Spanish Fly, the boat that belongs to Jose Wejebe?

MrBill - the rooster on topwater is one of my dreams!

The Spanish Fly, Super Fly, and The Bite are all 42' Maverick boats...built locally in Costa Rica. They tend to dominate the tournaments there in los suenos, but John had his day on the Muy Calliente. I fished with him a couple of weeks after the tournament and our best day was 13 for 19 on sails, plus a couple of large dorados. He runs a great trip. I highly recommend it. BTW, he is NOT at any marina, they anchor their boat outside the lodge at night and use a Majek to ferry guests to the boat in the morning. The extreme tides prevent tie-up. However, it is not an inconvenience at all.
