    Wow, what a trip! Truly awesome to be on a boat catching trophy marlin and some very nice sails...and on top of that one frickin huge grouper! Surprised no mahi or tuna? We are heading down to Manuel Antonio this coming week and fishing next weekend, should be a blast.

    Sounds like a great trip, nice report. Now please stop bringing fish into the boat for photos--it's illegal in Costa Rica and we've gone through this before.
