Flamingo Sportfishing: 29’ Dusky

Flamingo Sportfishing run charters on the lovely blue waters of Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica. This highly experienced and local crew can take you on exciting, and some of the best priced, inshore or offshore fishing trips targeting various hard-fighting species.

The ‘Cala Luna’ (Cove Hunter), a 29’ USA Dusky, is a perfect boat to charter for groups of up to four anglers. It is powered by twin 115HP Yamaha outboard motors, making it very light and fast, and also comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder and VHF radio to get you finding fish in no time. It features a roomy deck, which is partially covered, as well as a flybridge with cover. It is well equipped to get you reeling in fish, with its fighting chair, outriggers, downriggers, live bait tank, and snorkeling equipment in case you are wishing to meet the fish below. The vessel is also fitted with a bathroom, as well as a stereo to add to the enjoyment.

The Flamingo Sportfishing crew will be happy to guide you through a range of fishing techniques, including light and heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, handline and fly fishing. They use quality Penn and Shimano fishing equipment on all of their trips, so no matter if you are heading on a half day inshore, or three-quarter or full day offshore trip, you will be well prepared to target species such as Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Roosterfish, Wahoo, Red Snapper, Amberjack and more. Trips include fishing gear, lures, fish cleaning, snacks, drinks, and sandwiches. The crew prefer to practice catch and release for all Billfish and Roosterfish.

All of the captains are either local anglers or have spent decades and decades exploring the waters of Costa Rica. A day with them will not only result in great catches from the secret spots, but will also leave you wanting to come back time and time again.
