Report Description: The fishing in Flamingo, Costa Rica has been excellent for the last two months. The inshore fishing has been good with cubera snapper, amberjack, roosterfish, wahoo, jack crevalle and plenty of bonitos. The offshore fishing has been excellent with lots of marlin now, sailfish, tuna and dorado(mahi-mahi). Every trip offshore for us in the last two months has produced at least one marlin. Last week I had a group from Georgia and in only five hours of fishing we raised 4 blue marlin and released 2. Because of the economy the tourism is slow so there are not many boats out fishing. Plenty of dates open on the calendar and plenty of fish.
Regards,
Capt. Skeet Warren

Report Description: I fished the Los Suenos billfish classic in Costa Rica with Dr Decarrol Williamson and Mike Latham of Latham Cams a unique waterproof digital camera system he designed for use both on the boat and an underwater stick cam available to view under the boat. We fished aboard the El Jeffe a 38 ft Out Islander a boat that has no problem raising the sailfish. On the 3 days we fished the boat released 48 sails bringing the team to 3rd place overall for both legs of the tournament. My first tournament ever for billfish and there is a lot of action in the cockpit I can tell you that in a tournament. Thanks for the lessons guys good luck next year I have a feeling this boat may win the tournament next year as they were only out of first by a few sailfish. Go El Jeffe!!

Click here to enlarge Report Description: I had the honor of fishing on the El Jefe out of Los Suenos Costa Rica a 38 foot Out Island dayrunner with a top notch crew and the owner of the boat and operation along with his daughter this past weekend. Although 2 days of fishing was hardly enough I managed to catch one billfish each day I went out. We only fished about 6 hours each day as time was an issue with my trip but the time spent was phenomenal and productive. The captain of the boat Victor Julio Lopez is one of the top 5 billfish captains in the world as written in Marlin magazine and is for certain one of the best captains I have ever fished with to date. His tactics enabled me to catch a 130 lb sailfish and a 250 lb black marlin on 20 lb test almost making the task easy. I was amazed at the quality of the crew Daniel Arrieta was the first mate and the owner of the boat was very helpful to me in my excitement. Dr. Decarol Williamson set the patterns for the teaser/ballyhoo combinations in the trolling spread. Once a fish had been raised which we only managed to raise 2 fish on the trip he without panic dropped baits back to both fish. I could see that Dr. Williamson was a very professional angler in his actions setting up the fish on 20 lb test and Penn 20 International reels. The equipment onboard his operation is top notch and I tried to sneak in a photo of his rigging techniques on the ballyhoo but some things are secret and best kept that way. Unfortunately this is not the peak season for fishing in Costa Rica but none the less I had sore arms on the plane ride home. If you ever get a chance to go to Costa Rica make it a point to stay no less than one week. The scenery will amaze you the people are very friendly and the food is out of this world. El Jefe Sportfishing is just getting underway in Costa Rica and only waiting for the season to get started and will become the best package available once they get into full swing. For more information on pricing etc. feel free to send an email to eljefesportfishing@2catchfish.com I will help you where I can or forward any questions you may have regarding this outstanding operation. I hope to return to Costa Rica soon with a friend and spend some real time there to explore this country a bit more. Thanks Dr. Williamson for a great time hope to see you soon..........Steve
 Sep 10, 2003; 06:59PM - 1000 pound plus Black Marlin caught in Los Suenos Costa Rica
 Category:  Costa Rica
 Author Name:  Dr. DeCarol Williamson

Click here to enlarge Report Description: On Saturday, August 30, 2003, Dr. DeCarol Williamson from North Carolina landed his first grander Black Marlin of his lifetime. This is reported to be the largest fish ever brought into Los Suenos, Costa Rica to date. Dr. Williamson told me by phone his story – and what a story it was. He decided to go fishing north of Los Suenos scouting out the area as he was a new arrival to the resort area. While fishing on his 38’ boat “El Jefe” trolling Williamson lures, one of the reels started screaming out line. He was fishing a Penn International 50TW loaded with 50 lb. Ande monofilament line, trolling a large lure, usually a teaser, but had anticipated a Black Marlin was possibly in the area as some had been hooked during the previous weeks. The fish, estimated at 1,000 to 1,200 pounds, was only seen two times popping his head out of the water to a point where it was known in the early stages that the fish was in fact a Black Marlin. The size was underestimated in the early stages of the fight due to the distance it had popped up out of the water (700 feet away from the boat). Only the captain on the bridge was able to see the fish clearly. After a 1 hours 45 minute battle, the fish was about to be leadered and as the deckhand reached for the leader, he took a half wrap on his hand and got his first look at the monster below. Shock and awe is what happened next as he turned to look at Dr. Williamson, his eyes had grown to about double their normal size. The deckhand was about the tell Dr. Williamson just how big this fish really was, but before he could speak, the monster took off and the leader was no longer in his reach. The Black Marlin proceeded to strip off of the line from the reel as if the drag not been set at all. The drags were set at 17 lbs. strike and this monster peeled it off the reel like it was in freespool. The angler had seen the bottom of his spool on four separate occasions during this battle that was to be a tagged and released fish from the start of the fight. As with most large Marlin, the fish sounded straight down, and when the captain observed this, he put the throttle down and drove away from the fish hoping to plane the fish up or walk it to the surface. It worked but the fish had nothing left and, unfortunately exhausted his strength in his last attempt to escape. The fish floated upside down to the surface about 45 minutes later. A gaff was used by an inexperienced angler who turned his head away from the fish to gaff it and placed the gaff horizontally into the fish. Dr. Williamson was saddened by the death of the fish as he had every intention to release the fish from the beginning of the battle. Once the fish was gaffed, more problems were encountered as the fish would not fit sideways through the Marlin door because its girth was far too wide. With three people trying to get the fish through the door, they finally decided to try to get the fish inside of the back of the boat by backing down on it with the door open. It took over 30 minutes to get this 1,000 lb. plus fish into the cockpit area of “El Jefe.” Even though the beam of the boat is 14 ft. with more than 12 ft. of space in the rear of the boat, the fish was brought in and placed on one side of the boat. Unfortunately, the boat was listing so badly the giant had to be repositioned in order for the boat to return to port. With a great deal of difficulty, the grander was moved to the rear of the boat and placed from port to starboard as well as possible given the work area available. Once they returned to the port, the issue of removing the fish from the boat had just begun. Calling for the forklift used to lift large boats out of the water, the fish was finally lifted out of “El Jefe.” There was no scale large enough to weigh the fish in the Los Suenos area, so the Marlin was loaded onto a flatbed truck only to find that it would need to be moved again as it required an even larger vehicle. The weight of the fish was collapsing the leaf springs and bottoming out the shocks to the point where the bed of the truck was resting on the rear tires. The fish was cleaned and donated to anyone who wanted it right there at the docks. Dr. Williamson stated after the battle that he was retiring from fishing grander Marlin, but I truly believe this is temporary idea – he will return to fishing granders once all of his muscles and bones have healed.
