Golfito Throw Back?

Postby AMJohnston » Wed Mar 04, 2015 11:17 am

It's the middle of winter so I sometimes find myself watching fishing shows. Larry Dahlberg's "Hunt for Big Fish" shot a show about fishing for sail fish in Costa Rica while fishing out of Crocodile Bay resort. The captain on his boat was a guy named "Giovanni" (or maybe only one "n"). Wasn't there a captain at Golfito Sailfish Rancho by that name?

I saw that show, also, and had the same thought. Olympia's son, Anthony, was a captain there, as well. I've seen him on some shows.

I recently found a CD with all of our photos from 2005. That was the year one boat hooked 3 marlin and caught 2. Fun times. The last pictures were taken by Hamilton, Peeler and Davis.

they were some of the best of times --great friends --good fishing beautiful place

sadly it cost about two arms a leg to get there now and the fishing is not what it should be. I wish they had a handle on the inshore fly fishing --i would be back

And as I remember, we didn't have to pay extra for the "wild ride" we had.
