The Rainbow Ends in Puerto Jimenez

By Todd Staley,

Fishing Director

If there is gold at the end of a rainbow, then it ends here. Dorado (dolphinfish) are everywhere. Most are going above 25 lbs and anglers are averaging 10 to 15 a day. They are being got using several methods. They are hitting trolled lures with hooks, teased up and doing a bait and switch a few lucky anglers are finding floating logs loaded with dorado and triple tail.

Regular visitor Mike ( break another rod ) Pizzi found such a log and fooled them with a fly rod. The biggest one going around 30 lbs broke his brand new fly rod, but he still managed to land the fish with half a rod. While the dorado are stretching lots of string, the sails have been playing hide and seek, but had a good showing two days ago. Seventy-seven year old Boyd Hardesty landed three in one day. He wanted to sign on for a couple of more days fishing, but son Brian had to get home for a wedding, his own. Why would anyone pass up good fishing for a wedding?

Bio: Todd Staley Director of Fishing Todd carved his niche in the fishing community as a lure manufacturer and outdoor journalist specializing in light tackle in Florida and Costa Rica. He has been published in many magazines and newspapers in both countries and invented a lure that was banned from tarpon tournaments in Boca Grande, Florida as an unfair advantage over live bait. The late Archie Fields brought Todd to Costa Rica nearly a decade ago to manage his famous tarpon resort on the Caribbean coast. Since Archie's death he has managed Golfito Sailfish Ranch and worked with America Sportfishing in the Hotel del Rey. He is a world record holder and has guided several others to world records.
