Costa Rica – February 2015 – Part 2

After a week of fishing inside the bay of Nicoya we had yet to see any big fish, something we usually do. There are several hotspots in the area, but the regular schools of big jack crevalles and other predators were just not there. We did see some baitfish, but not in any great numbers….

After returning to Norway we have suffered from serious depressions. I actually cried while driving to work the day after returning. Norway is not like…

Roosterfish
