We wanted to let you know that we had a great time. The crew were true gentleman with a lot of patience and taught us ladies how to catch some great fish.

We had a great time!

Great outing last Saturday, and so grateful to have been part of an incredible day of fishing. Thanks so much to Randy and his crew for an awesome job. I will never forget the day. Catching four Dorado was most exciting, but landing TWO BLUE MARLIN in one day is without a question the hi-light of my entire sporting career, including catching a monster walleye in Minnesota, and bagging a Bonne and Crocket white tail buck in North Dakota. Those pale when compared to landing a giant Blue Marlin. “Second Best” isn’t even close to the excitement of that.

God willing, and all things being equal, I’ll be back down again in February, and we’ll do it again. I’m thinking of a full day trip for the “big stuff”, and then half day in shore for Roosters, etc.

Thanks, again to all for the privilege,
Rick F.

Great Outing!

Catching that huge Blue Marlin was the thrill of a lifetime! You cannot imagine how much I prayed the fish stayed on when I was fighting her. Fishing with Randy on the Talking Fish was a very enjoyable experience. The crew was excellent and they run a first class operation. They worked hard all day and I think that they wanted to catch fish as much as I did. They were also very friendly and a lot of fun to fish with. When there was action, they operated like a well oiled machine. I learned much fishing with then and consider them the best crew I have ever fished with. I look forward fishing with them again some time in the future.

Thrill of A Lifetime!

Many thanks to the crew of the Talking Fish and Outcast for an amazing experience! 7 Marlin, 1 sailfish and yellowfin tuna! These guys are the best!

Many Thanks!

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the fishing trips last week. The kids loved the half day coastal trip even though several got sick. They could’t wait to tell Patty and I about the fish that they caught. And the off shore was tremendous. I would have never thought that in two trips we would catch 6 sailfish, 2 marlin, tuna and dorado. We had fresh fish for dinner twice during the trip.

Our youngest son , who has billed fished off the Louisiana coast, is hooked on Costa Rica. He can’t wait to schedule another trip with you sometime in the future.

Thanks again for everything,
Andy M

Kids Loved It!

Our first trip to Costa Rica was wonderful. The highlight was the fishing trip. It was great to catch a sailfish after all of these years. Arturo and Leo were great. They really work at making the trip a success. If we return in the future I will schedule another trip with you.

Thanks again,

Arturo and Leo Were Great!

If you would, please pass along to Randy and Willie that we really enjoyed our time. That was the 4th time I’ve fished with Randy and after fishing with some of the other folks in CR, I can tell you that Randy is head and shoulders above the rest – a real pro and a pleasure to do business with.

I wish you all the best,
Steve G.

Our 4th Time!

Just want to let you know that I had a dream come true. The Salsa and Capt Maikel lead me to some of the best fishing ever. Caught 2 of 5 Sailfish which provided me a thrill and spectacular moments I will always remember.

We finished off with the catching of Tuna, again a great experience. Thanks for everything and hope to see you all again.

Best regards,

A Dream Come True!

Tamarindo Sportfishing has outdone itself again!

Holy Moly!

I had a great experience yesterday on the OutCast and thank you so much, The marlin was a monster fish!


A Great Experience!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a great fishing experience. As an avid outdoorsman, this trip was definitely well worth taking. My wife and I spent a whole day with cpt. Maikel on the Salsa and landed a nice mahi-mahi as well as a nice sized sail. We also chased many other billfish. The next day, Maikel and I were able to land a very nice Blue Marlin, which was my first. A 34 minute exhausting fight is an understatement, but was worth every minute. Maikel estimated the fish to be approx 350 lbs. We had clean releases on both fish after a couple minutes for nice photos. I cant say enough about capt. Maikel as he was very accommodating and worked hard for hook ups the whole time we were in the water. He is alo very fluent in English and educated us on the Costa Rica culture. I realize I was very fortunate to land both species of billfish in 1 1/2 days of fishing but I can honestly say that I would have been satisfied regardless. I would definitely recommend your charter service and will send you a couple photos for your use. I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for a great experience,
Jacob L.

Tamarindo Sportfishing and Captain Maikel:

I just wanted to give you some feedback about our fishing trip on the Talking Fish. My family and I had the best fishing experience of our lives. We had a great day fishing and our Captain was amazing at finding the fish! My son caught one blue marlin (the fish that he has talked about catching for years now), 3 sailfish and a mahi mahi. Out of everything we did in Costa Rica this is by far the best memory we have. I just want to thank everyone again for an awesome day and if we come back, we will definitely be doing the fishing from the Talking Fish!

Many Thanks,
Callie, Gene and Colby
