Target: Roosterfish


This package is for anglers on a mission with one single target: roosterfish. This inshore trophy is on the bucket list of many anglers due to their hard fights, unique dorsal fin, and beautiful markings. The tried and true technique or landing monster roosters is trolling with live bait, but they can also be caught with poppers and stick baits. Depending on what time of year you visit we will send you to Manuel Antonio or Tamarindo where you fill fish with a dedicated inshore guide to fish for roosterfish all week long.

Location: Manuel Antonio or Tamarindo

  1. Day One

    Let’s go fishing! Your full day of inshore fishing starts early as your guide loves to be the first one on the water.
