Member since April 2016 Quepos, Costa Rica
Background
Captain Manuel Gabuardi has been fishing the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica for 30 years and has been the captain of the GOOD DAY for 15 years. Capt. Manuel knows the Quepos waters immensely, and is so passionate about fishing and loves nothing more than taking our guests from all over the world to experience the best fishing that Costa Rica has to offer. Owner & mate of GOOD DAY Benn Gilmour is from the UK & has been fishing around the world all of his life. Benn loves Offshore fishing for Marlin, Sailfish & Big Tuna. Inshore his favorite species are Roosterfish, Snook & Cubera Snappers.
Techniques
Inshore I love flyfishing and light tackle lure fishing with plugs, spoons and softplastics for Roosterfish, Snook & Snappers. In Costa Rica, a freelined live bait works so well also and provides excellent and often very visual sport. Offshore, I love Billfish and have a total obsession with Marlin!! In Costa Rica we are lucky in that we have Blues, Blacks and Stripeys so together with our excellent Sailfish fishing a Grand Slam is always a possibility! I love fishing for Tuna, Mahi, Wahoo, Grouper & Amberjacks also. The lighter the tackle, the better!

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES!
WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES!
Jun 10, 2019 Quepos
WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES! 9th June Yesterday we had the Manhart family from Florida & California aboard GOOD DAY for a half day Inshore fishing in Costa Rica. We got 9 bites from Jacks, Mackerel, Needlefish & possibly a Roosterfish and were unlucky to lose a few fish aswell as several bit off leaders from the Mackerel. We stayed out longer & literally did not want to go back to the Marina but sometimes you just have to accept that today is not the day and that the fish gods have won. Catch report - zilch!! This was our first skunk/blank day for the current season which started on 1st November! Always a horrible feeling but it is fishing after all & not catching! Thankfully, the weather was great, scenery along the coastline was beautiful and the guys enjoyed their time on the water! 10th June After our super slow day yesterday, today we headed offshore fishing in Costa Rica in search of Billfish & Tuna with Gary from Texas. Within 5 minutes of putting the lines in the water we had a triple Sailfish in the spread!! We caught 2 of the fish and the other played with our teaser but would not eat a bait! Just about the perfect start after the previous day! The Sailfish bite proved to be excellent today and there were birds, dolphins and Baitballs everywhere. We were marking Baitballs from 20 foot under the boat, right down to the bottom at some points, which was 300 feet deep schools of bait. Gary went on to release 6 Sailfish, we pulled the hooks on 3 more and raised around 12-13 Sailfish in total plus a couple of missed Dorado bites. Two tags deployed for Gray FishTag Research supporting the research effort! Back out there tomorrow, wish us luck!
