The Best Sport Fishing in Drake Bay
7 Days 6 Nights Drakes Bay Fishing Package – Osa Peninsula – Corcovado National Park and Cano Island
No frills fishing at Hotel Ojala on the Osa peninsula. At Big Fish Costa Rica we seek out the best, and sometimes the best tour or expedition isn’t the most expensive … it’s just a beautiful place, great value, and a fun time. That’s what we have created with our Drake Bay fishing package.
Captain Fred, a North American expatriate, and his wife and two daughters have a small six-room hotel on Drake Bay. They offer the hotel to divers and eco-tourist who sometimes frequent the area but it’s just perfect for fishing.
All rooms have an ocean view, air conditioning, hot water showers, room refrigerators, and safes.
Fred is a lifelong fisherman and has fished these waters of Costa Rica for 15 years. His boat is a 28 foot Garrett powered by a quiet, smoke, and vibration-free four-stroke Honda. The boat is equipped with a tower, head, outriggers, electronics, tuna tubes, Penn and Shimano stand-up rods, and lots of shade.
Experienced flyrodders to the novice angler are all welcome. Fred fishes using flys, lures, teasers, live and dead rigged bait. Fishing the calm Pacific waters for Marlin, Sailfish, Roosterfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Snappers is almost always productive regardless of the time of the year.
Fishing days have drinks, snacks, and a great lunch packed and ready to eat while trolling. In fact, food is one of the things that makes this package unique; Fred and his wife are “foodies” and prepare some of the best meals on Drake’s Bay.
Fred loves to grill on live fire and has a rancho specifically designed for wood fire grilling and baking. Grilled steaks, jerk chicken, pork oven baked over live coals for hours, veggies, potatoes, sweet potatoes, yucca platanos, bananas, and even grilled bread, and of course the freshest fish in town. They have very tasty green salads and fresh juices straight from the juicer. When not fishing, Captain Fred says “Beach, shorts and a grill and I’m a happy man.”
