Near World Record Snook - Nosara, Costa Rica

Check out what local angler Martin Ramirez pulled out of the Nosara River Mouth:

I checked the IGFA All Tackle Records for Black Pacific Snook (57lbs. 12 oz, 1991), White Pacific Snook (47 lb 8 oz, 2001), and Common Snook (53 lb 10 oz, 1978) and I think this one is certainly in the argument with these record fish. Also, Martin claims he caught a bigger one last year that was basically the same girth but was longer.

Of course we are off the beaten path here so no digital fish scales or IGFA observers, ergo no record application.

Still one heck of a fish! This is what I mean when I tell people that the Snook fishing in Costa Rica is world-class just like the offshore billfishing.
Pura vida!
