    We flew into Liberia from SJ to meet up with Melvin and the guys at Marina Papagayo . They had just come into CR after a 16 day trip from Cabo . They got beat up pretty good crossing the Gulf of Tehuantepec , it's usually a rough crossing with all of the wind ripping through there . We had originally planned on fishing out of Guatemala , then fishing our way back to CR , but the fishing was slow there around that time so we met them here . Everyone was happy to be back in CR again , we had dinner at the marina , and got ready to head to Quepos in the AM .

    We headed out in the AM and ran for a while before stopping to put lines out . We worked our way south and released 6 sails and got a bunch of dorado . Pulled lines in early and ran the remaining 50 miles to Quepos . It sure felt good to be back there after 5 months . The guys took a couple days off after being away for so long . We went and did some tourist stuff that we normally don't do . Went up to Manuel Antonio , checked out a waterfall south of town , walked into town for dinner etc . Was nice to leave the marina for a change .

    Mon 1-28-19

    We got a late start after doing paperwork and renewing our fishing licenses . Missed the morning bite , and kept going past the fleet . Saw a pod of Pilot Whales . Decided to spend the night out by Furuno bank on the chute . Got 1 sail , 0/1 blue marlin and a couple dorado .

    Tue 1-29-19

    Got into the YFT first thing in the AM , lot's of smaller ones though . Went 2/4 sails , 0/1 on blue marlin and a couple dorado . Fishing was kinda slow so we called it early and headed back in .

    Had a good time and was great to be back in CR again . Can't wait to go back next month .

    Nive report!
    We've stayed at the Andaz there in Papagio Bay and fished out of the harbor, beautiful place.
    Are those Dorado tied up? I've never seen that done before.I must be to keep the mess to a minimum.
