    Our season is off to a great start and with the Christmas holidays right around the corner we are pleased to report that the fishing has has been nothing short of spectacular. Sailfish are showing up in good numbers offshore and the Yellowfin Tuna bite has been crazy!

    Our captains are busy chasing birds huge schools of porpoise out on the edge, in search of these brutes. Pound for pound, tuna are perhaps considered one of the strongest fish that swim in the ocean. Ask Keith Brossard, who caught one in the 90 lb. range on stand-up tackle while fishing with Capt. Raphael Lopez.
    What about Cosmo Goss's double Yellowfin Tuna caught on a single popper while casting into a school of feeding tuna. Check out the video!

    Zancudo Lodge also hosted Bruce Bochy, Manager of the San Francisco Giants came to experience some of Costa Rica's fantastic game-fishing. Randy and Deborah Houston founders of the Purple Heart Foundation were also at the lodge. The foundation is a fundraising engine of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, who raises money to support The Order’s programs and services. This group had an awesome time; Bruce, Randy, Jay Johnson and Gary Rufa also fished out at the seamount and released 3 Blue Marlin. Joel and Wanda Davis also accompanied the group and Joel had a great day catching Roosterfish inshore.

    There was certainly no shortage of great fish stories at the dinner table; and the good news is that we just getting warmed up. Things are going to get really heated up after the Christmas holidays so stay tuned for more great fishing at Zancudo Lodge.

    Tight Lines!
