Henry is down in Costa Rica sampling some of the amazing deep sea fishing to be found there. What's unusual in Costa Rica is that often the best fishing is close to the shoreline with big predators feeding in the deep water and structure here. The skipper starts by trolling along the shoreline and Henry is soon into a big Roosterfish of around 75lb, a great way to get off the mark. Just as a storm starts rolling in, Henry hooks up again with another massive Roosterfish, this time the skipper estimating it be around 90lb. As the weather clears, the crew see a Sailfish cruising on the surface and when Henry gets his lure in front of it, a spectacular aerial fight ensues. In the tips section, Jamie from Big Fish Charters, shows us how to correctly set the drag on these saltwater reels which is crucial to get right when targetting big game fish. In the recipe section, Chef Brad Townsend cooks up a sumptious Jerk Rub Mahi Mahi.
Once you watch this episode, you'll soon realise why the deep sea fishing in Costa Rica is simply world class.
