We’ve fished with these guys the past 3 years because they are the best !! Franklin and Alex work seamlessly together to make your fishing trip a great experience. This year we caught 2 blue marlin, 2 sailfish, 3 dorado, and 3 yellowfin tuna!! Highly recommend these guys for any fishing charter out of Quepos.

Great day of fishing! Can’t wait to come back & fish again in April 2022. Fishing with Captain Franklin & first mate Alex are the best in the business. If you are Fishing for Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi-mahi, Tuna, Rosterfish they will put you on the fish. All the best equipment & a day of fishing you will remember for a lifetime!!

I booked a fishing trip for myself and my two adult children for April of 2020. Because of COVID the airline cancelled our flight. I stayed in touch with Franklin over the year and booked 2 full days of fishing in March of 2021. I have been lucky enough to fish many places in my life including the United States, Canada, and Mexico, all the way from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico. I wasn’t sure what to expect but the three of us had an unbelievably great time! I don’t know where to even start but every part of the two days we spent with Franklin and Alex were outstanding. In my 56 years this was the most enjoyable and fun fishing trip I have ever experienced! My goal was to have my children catch some big fish that we have never experienced before. Fishing was a little slow the first day but Franklin spent extra time and made sure we all caught some nice sailfish. The second day more Sailfish, Yellow Fin Tuna, and Mahi-mahi. It was outstanding! We were treated like royalty and fed like kings! Everything about the two days was top notch and we had a great time! We will go back next year and will be fishing with Franklin! Thank you Franklin and Alex for an outstanding two days!
