Thank you for visiting our fishing intellegence network website!

My name is Robert aka CRgunner



I am the "man on the ground" (and on the water) fishing and networking with all the Captains
here in Playa del Coco. What I have found ...when anglers are doing research online they get outdated information and as most fisherman know conditions and species change overnight. So we wanted to
provide an accurate up to date daily contact portal for the latest reports.
We provide daily updates with all the vital up to date information on sportsfishing
in the North Western Papagayo Bay Area. All of the charter boats in this Region of Guanacaste fish the triangle south between Tamarindo (Catalina Islands) Bat Island (Santa Rosa Parke) and Playa del Coco.

We know all the captains...their boats, their range, rates and what species of fish they raise. A problem most anglers have is putting a group together to lessen the cost of sports fishing....that's what we do....get like minded anglers together for a great day in the Papagayo Bay.

We realize pictures of other anglers catches mean nothing to you so you will not find them here. You will not find pictures of boats for hire they may be out of commission next week. You will not find charts of of species of fish and what their season is. All you need is a daily update of what is being raised by what Captain and the location of the school.

ad·ven·ture
noun: adventure; plural noun: adventures
an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity.
daring and exciting activity calling for enterprise and enthusiasm.
More risk, danger, hazard, peril, uncertainty, precariousness



Most adventurous travelers want to experience the local activity/customs of the indigenous people of the country they visit. Fishing is no different, any angler with plenty of cash can charter a luxury vessel anywhere in the world. But why? Would you take a cabin cruiser down the Amazon or a dug out canoe? In a local handmade Panga you can touch the water and the pilot whales or rescue a turtle snared in a plastic bag... and back up right on a deserted beach for some snorkeling and a fresh fillet open fire picnic. If you want to try fishing with a hand line (yoyo) like the locals we have them on board....or a fly rod...or a Shimano Stella spinning reel...or Penn 50 International conventional reel....your choice.

Life is about choices...and happiness in your heart... so please don't like us on Facebook (we don't subscribe to the NSA spy grid) ...Trip Adviser?.. Who cares about a stranger's solicited experience on a boat ride....someone else telling you what THEIR certain experience was on an adventure?...the definition of adventure includes "uncertainty".

So why not save a few bucks and fund your retirement or your grandkids college fund or some clients come back the next day and fish for a different species...now that's a testimonial.

We design a customized trip for the species you want to raise.

Come experience a real adventure (you never know what will happen) ...your smile is the only tip this crew needs.

New Fishing Report

 

MAY 2019   

The Papagayo Bay food chain has been restored due to the moratorium placed on Shrimping 2 yrs ago. The shrimp nets yield are only 20 percent shrimp the rest is cullings ie fry, krill, sardines, anchovies and small fish that are needed to complete the food chain. The Bay is flourishing with Mahi, Snapper, Yellowfin, Sail ...virtually all species are back stronger than ever. An Orca Whale was spotted several weeks ago next to our panga...very rare sight indeed.
We are using Yo-Zuri top water 3D poppers on the light spinning tackle for both yellowfin, jacks and Mahi. Rooster and Wahoo on the downrigger. Jigging for large snapper along with cut bait on the ocean floor. Shared charter is available.


 

January 2019

 

Currently there are plenty of large Mahi in the Papagayo Bay due to warm water and a large school that was here all year. The Red Snapper are moving in and we are boating various sizes. The Sail, Marlin and Jumbo Mahi are South outside Catalina towards Tamarindo. Towards Nicaragua 25 miles north there are some remaining Wahoo, AJ's, Cuberra, Rooster and Yellowfin Tuna, but high winds prevent smaller boats access to the grounds.

 

 

Papagayo Bay Report April to October 2018
 

We have had a great 18 months in the Bay. All the species are in with the exception of Wahoo. We are currently boating Yellow Fin, Mahi, Snapper, Grouper, Rooster and Mackerela Spanish and Sierra. Sail and Marlin are 25 miles offshore further south and will move in closer with the increase in ocean temperature. Wahoo should arrive in the coming months.

 

 

 

June 2017


All the species are returning to the Papagayo Bay!!!

Plenty of small Mahi around Witches Rock and in the Bay...

Loads of Wahoo around Roca Negro and Bat Islands

Yellowfin !! Boated North of the Bats....

Also large Pargo and Cubera Snapper north of Bats...

Rooster are biting and Sail Fish in and outside the Santa Rosa Parke
 

February 1, 2017 

A few Mahi around Catalina ...as they are heading south to warmer waters. Currently boating Makarela Sierra (my shashimi favorite), Red Snapper (larger this year) Rooster 50 to 70 lbs , Jack Cravelle ...Atune negro aka Bonita ....a few Grouper are starting to move in to the colder waters of the Papagayo Bay....the wind is the big factor this time of year and we are mostly bottom fishing for Red Snapper and Grouper or inside the along the coast for Rooster.
 

 

Report for June, 2017

 
Warmer water has returned to the Papagayo Bay.... Sailfish, Wahoo, Dorado (Mahi Mahi), Marlin and Rooster. There  are sightings of Yellowfin Tuna and there are plenty of Black Tuna (Bonita).
We are catching plenty of Mackarela Sierra at night on cut sardine...
