I've fished down there quite a bit, but I've never been to Playa Tambor. It looks like you'll be on the inside of the Nicoya peninsula, so the surf should be minimal.

I don't really fish the...

Anyone planning on attending?

I'm dragging a few guys from Maine down there with me to try and impress upon the managers the dire state of things up our way. With any luck, at least they won't...

Juro, I got 3.5 seasons out of my last pair of Patagonia waders, and I'm on my 2nd season with my current pair. I had a pair of Bean's waders in between there, but the fact that I'm back with...

It is possible to buy good beans down there, but it's next to impossible to find a decent cup of coffee - the Ticos like their coffee very thin, and usually serve it half coffee half milk - "cafe con...

Shore fishing on the Pacific coast of CR is a crapshoot at best. I've heard that there are more Roosters around Quepos than in other areas, but more is still certainly not a lot. I've fished CR...

This is a red herring. Banning the commercial catch AND not transferring the quota to the recreational sector would certainly help the stocks, resulting in a roughly 25% drop in dead stripers in the...

Just a clarification-- According to the ASMFC science, stocks are down. Both overall biomass and spawning stock biomass (age 8+ fish) have been in decline since at least 2002-2003, and overall...

Fred,

I saw that this morning. The scariest thing about it is that the managers use a constant in all their models to represent natural mortality (M=0.15). It seems to me that mycobacteriosis...

I voted #1. Numbers have been declining for 6 or so years now, and it's finally reached the point where it's starting to show south of Maine.

The fish that we're hearing about offshore have...

Fliboy,

Like gseries said, it's starting to pick up a bit, but it's still very spotty. I live up here and fish every day, and this year I consider any trip where I don't get skunked a success. ...

Well, I'm finally back from MV- the winds kept the boat on the mooring Monday and Tuesday, but we got in a good day ahead of the blow on Sunday, and did a lot of shore fishing Mon & Tues.

Vineyard this weekend?

I'm planning on heading over in a friend's 18' Parker for a long weekend. We'll be moored in Menemsha, but we'll also have a car, so shore fishing anywhere on the island is a possibility.

After reading some glowing reports elsewhere, and chickening out because of the weather last night, I finally made it over to the coast tonight.
