Freaking huge bull - Quepos CR

ive Fished Costa Rica about a half dozen times. It’s great. First time out of Jaco/ los Suenos we got 19 pacific sails averaging 100 lbs each. We told the captain to,go home as my buddy and I were beat. 


But you need to see this bull caught last week, credit to quepos fish adventure on fb.

    That fish could eat most of the dolphin caught off South Florida!

    Yeah , John's guys get it done down there . Dolphin that size and bigger are pretty common in CR , it's amazing how the fishing is down there with no commercial pressure .

    That's bigger than the one I got out of Los Suenos in May, mates estimated mine at 55 lbs... That one is closer to 75 I'd think.

    The Dolphin are bigger in CR and Panama because they ran the commercial fleets out of their waters a while back . It dramatically improved the entire fishery . We used to catch fish of this size off of Florida , but our fishery has been in a steady decline the last 5+ years . Unfortunately it is only going to keep getting worse .

    Steady decline the last 50+ years according to those who have been fishing that long :(  As much as people don't want to hear it, marine sanctuaries will help.

    Yup, used to get em jumbo sized back in the seventies off Miami. Shows what happens when you kill all the little ones every season.
