    Why fish with “Good Day?”
    That is the question I asked myself when looking for a fishing charter in Quepos Costa Rica, why them? Who knows the real reason I did, but now after the trip I am glad they are the ones I picked.
    Let me tell you about the adventure my wife and I had with them. As always we had a full vacation planned with lots of activities in several different cities…. and we had this one day free to do an off shore fishing adventure. Rain or Shine, that is the day we were going to go!

    As we woke up that morning it was a beautiful day with only a few white clouds in the sky and sun was shining bright. We got to the boat late, which is very not like us! But hey, the boat was ready and waiting when we got!
    Quickly made the greetings and off we went….
    it was an hour an half out till we dropped the lines, and in that hour and half the clouds changed and the waves grew! You could see on the horizon it was a heavy rain coming our way. But we dropped the lines in and with in minutes, my wife caught the first catch of the day, a nice Mahi!

    Offshore fishing on the “Good day” with Jackpot sportfishing
    Took my 17 yr old son on an offshore fishing trip with Benn and the Good Day crew and they did not disappoint. The bite was slow but Benn was very attentive especially with my son and after a few misses had him on a sailfish. Was most definitely worth the time and money to go with them. Highly recommend these guys for how they treated not only me but taking care of my son and seeing how happy he was catching his fish. Great group of guys that do it the right way. Important to educate and promote conservation and Benn was knowledgable in taking care of the fish. Excited to come back and catch more with these guys!
