Extremely productive trip!

Working with Steve and Liisa, the ones who advised and booked our offshore trip, was so pleasant! I was so pleased with their responsiveness, thoroughness, and patience through the process of booking us with the perfect crew and boat. We caught a super nice Wahoo, about 48 pounds, which provided us with a NICE dinner! The crew was good to recommend the best places to have our fish cooked and served up with sides. Not long we hooked up a Blue Marlin, somewhere in the 250 lb range. After a great fight, we released the beauty. After a short wait, we hooked another Blue Marlin, this time about a 350 lb. fish. So awesome!!!!! He was brought to the boat and we got some great pics and videos. It was finally my turn to catch a Sailfish -- my son and husband had caught one each on previous charters. It took me 15 minutes to get him to the boat and he was gorgeous! We figured he weighed about 100 lb and that was all I needed. Got a strike with a third Marlin on the way in - the crew turned around and did their best to get it to strike again, but it wasn't in the cards as it was getting towards the end of our day out. I could not have been more pleased with the Captain "Carlos" who was extremely friendly and obviously worked very hard to make it a great day. The crew Annan (?) and Arturro were awesome also. They definitely worked their tails off to hook and keep those fish on. One of the best fishing trips we have been on. It made our trip most incredible. Thanks Go Fish CR and the crew onboard our Blackfin

Fairytale trip

This was the best fishing trip of my life so far. I went to Costa Rica specifically for fishing and reached out to these guys for information along with several others. I chose to fish with Liisa based on the comfort and constant communication. I maxed out on Tuna, caught a Dorado, and a sailfish that I'm mounting all without have to go that far offshore. We cut up some tuna and had some fresh sushimi on the boat. They also arranged for transportation to and from my hotel. Perfect!!!

b2362015..... We are so glad that everything fell into place for you on this trip and we look forward to seeing you again one day.
Thanks for taking the time to post this review.

Steve and Liisa (GoFishCR) are in constant contact to make sure your expectations are being met or if they can help you with anything. Great folks and dedicated to make sure you enjoy your holiday!

The fishing expeditions were well planned (thanks to GoFishCR) with a talented crew and great fishing!!

They made us feel safe, at home and even spent several hours with us on an ATV excursion.

I strongly recommend GoFishCR, We started planning next year's trip on the way back to the airport and will definitely use Steve and Liisa!!

Phil W...... Safe & at home is always our main goal. See you next year.

Everything I had hoped for!

We stumbled upon "Go Fish Costa Rica" as it was right next to our accommodation. Walked in and was greeted by Steve, this guy really looked after us! He gave us good advice on what we should do to get the best chance of a good fishing trip.

I have tried to get Marlin and Sailfish before, shelled out heaps of money, got nothing. This was the opposite, everyone got a sailfish ~100lbs each, 45lb mahi mahi's, good size tuna (SASHIMI!), and one huge Marlin. If you go out on one of Steve's recommendations and you don't get anything, you know no one was! I even talked to some people who went out the same day on other charters, they didn't get anything like what we did. Steve really knows his stuff!

I will never forget this trip for the rest of my life!

Costa Rica vacation

My first time to CR and brought along my son who is 15 for a father/son trip.
Steve and Liisa couldn’t have been more helpful in assisting me with my numerous questions regarding fishing and ATV rides.
ATV ride was great in fact my son asked to do the 4 hour ride a second time.
When I return I will connect with both of them again for all my activities and would recommend anyone do the same.

Awesome Fishing trip

We booked a fishing trip with Go Fish Costa Rica and were not disappointed!!!I asked Steve and Lisa to make sure there was plenty of beverages and food on board and that we wanted to be set up in a good location to possibly catch some good fish. Well the cooler was stocked and we caught 4 sailfish, a bunch of grouper and some Mahi-Mahi. Great day fishing. Additionally, the boat was in top notch condition and the boat captain and first mate (Victor and Freddy) were great guys with first class service!!! Could not have asked for a better boat crew. Highly recommend and will use them again!!!

Bud W
Here's to many more stocked coolers and plenty of fish, appreciate the time taken to post this review.
Please give our best to the others and thanks for trusting us with your plans.

Amazing experience and hassle free vacation

Friends of mine won a fishing a vacation package at a Ducks Unlimited auction through Go Fish Costa Rica. Go Fish set us up with a beautiful condo, two days of offshore fishing and helped us plan and book other activities during our stay. The entire experience was amazing and easy. Steve and Lisa were extremely kind and helpful, anything we needed they could help with. The condo was a perfect place for the four of us, and it felt like a home away from home. The boat and crew we were with were also amazing, we caught some fantastic fish (sailfish, tuna, mahi) and everyone in our party (some new to sport fishing, others more experienced) had fun.

Steve and Lisa have put in a lot of time exploring the area and vetting different tour companies and activities. They know who to use and can guarantee a good experience. It took all the guess work out of planning and the pain of coordinating logistics. I HIGHLY recommend using them to book your fishing and vacation plans!

Tuna and Mahi

We had a great time on the charter that Steve and Lisa set us up with. We ended up catching about a dozen tuna and five mahi. At the start, our captain Chepe told us that we could catch tuna which he was confident in, or go for the billfish which may or may not produce. We opted to start by going for tuna which was good action, trolling in and around a giant school of probably over 1000 spinner dolphin. Most of what we caught was smaller (10 lbs) but good action. After doing that for a few hours we asked to go for the big ones so we spent the rest of the day doing that. We caught a few mahi, again smaller (5 lbs), and didn't get any billfish. The crew was great and we had a good time...of course wish we caught bigger fish but that is fishing, right! I will say that Steve really put effort into getting us out with a good captain at short notice, and you could tell he genuinely cared about us having a good experience, so that was great and much appreciated.

BrianBTampa,,,,, We are so glad that you appreciated our efforts while out there and appreciate you taking the time to post this review...

Tons of Tuna

If you are looking for tuna then this is the trip for you. We took a full day trip out on the Blackfin in June 2018. We were originally supposed to go on the Carolina Classic but there were transmission problems so we got upgraded to the Blackfin. The boat was very nice and the crew worked very hard all day. We caught 9 tuna before 9AM which was a lot of fun, but we wanted to try catching anything else so we went to trolling for the rest of the trip. We did not catch anything after that so it was a long day on the water after the morning rush. I was really hoping to catch pretty much any fish other than tuna but I wont complain too much about catching fish because we did catch a lot of them. We saw tons of dolphins swimming along the boat too so that was really cool. Overall we really enjoyed our time and Steve and Lisa worked great with getting us accommodated, I just wish we had caught more of a variety of fish.

Jared S,,,,,So glad everything worked out in the long run. And really like the fact that you got to enjoy the 1000's of dolphins while out there.

2 bucket list items

We first reached out to Go Fish Costa Rica because of their trip advisor reviews. Our first contact was through their website. They replied immediately and after a couple emails, Steve asked if he could call to make the communication smoother. When talking to Steve, I explained my situation of wanting to cross off a couple of bucket list fish. I am not a professional fisherman by any stretch of the imagination but I have been offshore many times in both the GOM and Pacific in Alaska, Washington and Oregon. My main goals were to: catch a Rooster, catch Bill fish and have a toilet so my wife would go with. Steve said he would email me a couple of recommendations and explained the booking process. I really appreciated this because this allowed me to have everything important in emails so I could look at them later. I was admittedly skeptical of paying someone in a foreign country a thousand dollars three months before I was going to use their services. However, the entire transaction couldn’t have been smoother or more professional. I had a very quick response from him with his recommendations. The prices were a little more than I had in mind but I decided to trust the expert. My decision was a good one. The first day I booked was a half day in a center console. I REALLY wanted a rooster. Steve and the crew informed me in the morning that they hadn’t been biting much. I still wanted to give it a shot. In the first pass trolling within 5 or 10 minutes of fishing, we caught our first rooster. We ended up with a total of 3 landed and my wife’s got off. We also ended up with some mahi mahi and a few different jacks. The crew was absolutely on point and friendly even with a language barrier. The second day was two days later, it was a full day. Same story with the bill fish bite not being great. I heard that from others at the resort as well so it wasn’t just them. We fished for several hours without even a bite. Then the excitement happened. We caught a nice sailfish in the early afternoon and an hour or so later we caught a bigger one. My wife’s got off. We saw a total of 4 sail fish. 2 hit the boat, one got off and the fourth came up at the same time as the second and we didn’t hook it. Same story with the crew. Very professional. There is pressure on these guys to produce and even with a slow start they kept after it. At no point did they suggest quitting and going after something easier just to make the trip seem more productive. I would absolutely use them next time and recommend that anyone wanting to fish in Costa Rica to use them.
