C Tales Sportfishing

 

C-Tales sportfishing charter guides use bait & switch techniques by trolling artificial baits. Conventional tackle is provided; however, fly fishermen need to bring their own fly fishing tackle for fly fishing in Costa Rica. We practice catch & release for big game Sailfish & Marlin. The option of bringing home Dorado, Tuna, Snapper, and other sport fish for snacks is up to the fishermen.
