In a few weeks my brother Dan, my good friend from Endicott College, Brendan Eppley (Go Gulls), and I will be heading to Costa Rica to fish with local guide Tom Enderlin…for seven days!
This will be my first time fishing in the Pacific Ocean and am super excited to do so. I am pumped to share my adventures, and make connections and learn different fisheries to hopefully bring other TeamWhyKnot members on trips like this in the future!
Follow along over the next two weeks as I share my prep for the trip. This post will give you the basic outline for the Trip’s plan, the next blog will focus on the specific species we will be targeting and the tactics to target them, and the third blog will feature the gear we are bringing on the trip!
Upon arrival in San Jose we will drive seven hours through gorgeous terrain and jungles to Osa Penninsula. This area is said to be ‘one of the most biologically intense places on earth’ by Nat Geo.The plan is to fish both inshore and offshore for bucket list species including Roosterfish, Snook and Pacific Sails, with both spin gear and on the fly rod.
