Tom Sewall his wife and son and his wife released 3 Sailfish and 6 tuna. A few words from them.
"We just returned from Costa Rica and wanted to send an email to let you know how very much we enjoyed our trip It was our desire to show two of our grown kids and their significant others a fishing trip of a lifetime. Boy, did you exceed our expectations! First, Tom and I visited Costa Rica 15 years ago and spent most of our honeymoon in the Quepos area. We did not fish on that trip. I have longed for Micah Ward, our expert angler son, to experience Costa Rica ever since. Well, he and his wife Amanda made it down with us as well as my daughter Sarah and her fiance Josh. At some point early in the trip I told the crew that Micah had been a deck hand in his youth. They set out to challenge his abilities and hooked a 100# sail that was following the teasers with a left handed reel rigged with 20# test! He grabbed the reel and had the fight of his life with the challenge and the crew kept calling him "Big Boy" as he is 6'4" tall and not left handed. It was a joy to watch him land the fish when the odds were so against him. The crew - all of us were so very proud of him but mostly his wife as she cheered him on and jumped in for the picture which made it that much more precious to me. Well, we landed 6 tuna and released 3 very nice sails. It was a great day and we appreciate Captain Rafa, Kevin and Keller as they performed with the utmost professional efforts. We all marveled at how hard they worked for us and would highly recommend the crew to anyone - anytime"

July 8 Wow, Wow, Wow, Fishing here in Quepos has been great. I came down this week in the hopes of landing my 2010 Marlin. Wells Folks wishes can come true. As we headed offshore on Thursday morning with Capt. Franklin at the helm, his plan after fishing the 26 two days before felt that the bite might be a bit further South. We headed to the Furuno to fish for live bait and bottom fish at an undisclosed point there. This is where the action started! All the lines started going first on was Randall with a beautiful Amberjack followed up with another Amberjack for Leanne, Sam followed with a Red Snapper, followed by a blue runner then 2 more Amberjacks, 2 Roosters another Snapper and Blue Runner, I gotta tell ya, there was so much going on, we had such fun and it was only 10 am we headed out a bit to 35 miles offshore when we had a estimated 700 lb Black Marlin on the bait, however he broke off. I say that my three favorite words are the captain yelling the magic words MARLIN! MARLIN! MARLIN! and just as Dempsey 1st mate handed me a sandwich around lunchtime those Magic words came bellowing down from above, This was it, I was in the chair as this magnificent Blue Marlin danced across the water. It was 28 minutes to get him close when he shot out of the water just 8 meters from the boat. Talk about a breathtaking moment as he boasted his Mad Marlin Face and incredible colors. Total of 30 minutes to the Leader for the release of the 300 lb. Blue Marlin. As I am still running on the adrenaline rush we followed this by the release of another 2 Sailfish. Really an incredible day Total numbers for day 4 Amberjacks, 2 Red Snapper, 2 Blue Runners, 2 Roosterfish, 2 Sailfish and 2 Marlin Raised and 1 Release.
