I'm glad that you guys had a great trip. Capt. Lee is the only one that I trust with my boat and my clients when I am not in Costa Rica. He always does a great job. Good luck Thursday.

The fish I caught were so cool. It wasn’t a great day to go fishing though. We caught a sailfish and a mahi-mahi. The sailfish was super cool. I definitely would go on this charter again.

Thanks for fishing with us CC. I hope that you enjoyed the mahi for dinner. You guys come back and see us again soon. I'm sure that the fishing will be better next time and you can catch some more of those cool sailfish.

Captain Skeet knew just where to go for a great day of fishing. Perfectly organized trip, top notch gear, immaculate boat, and hardworking crew made for a stress free day. We highly recommend booking your trip with Bushwacker Sportfishing.

Great outing for the full day trip. Captain Skeet and his crew are hardcore about finding the fish and focused the entire time. It's a well oiled system they have down. The Bushwacker is a beast on the water and very comfortable and well kept....More
