On May 4th, 2011 I will be heading off on an exciting 1-year trek across Central & South America. I will be carrying two fishing rods in my backpack - one spin casting & one fly rod. Join my adventure as I search for each country's best fishing spots, learn local techniques, and show you how to get in on the action. Rainbow Bass fishing in Nicaragua, Machaca in Costa Rica, and Peacock Bass in Guyana are only a few of the adventures on the itinerary.

Fishing photo of the week - Guapote on Lake Arenal, Costa Rica

Chris & Captain Marc with a Guapote on Lake Arenal, Costa Rica

This is a photo of a female Rainbow Bass (locally called 'Guapote') caught on Lake Arenal, Costa Rica. Lake Arenal is one of the best places in Costa Rica to catch a trophy sized Guapote. Since we were fishing in the rainy season and water levels were high, we trolled with deep diving Bomber lures to get down about 30 feet. 


  1. I'm taking a Costa Rica Vacations, next summer. I'm already planning on spending most of it fishing. Where are the best spots to take a boat?

  2. Recently, I have become very interested in Costa Rica Vacations. They seem so enjoyable and relaxing

  3. This is a photo is really good sounds amazing and a rare case. Thanks for the sharing, i enjoyed reading it.

  4. Alaska is the perfect place in the world to have the fishing experience of a lifetime. With an infinite number of fishing resources, Alaska is the location to go to fish for rainbow trout, king salmon or halibut.
