GDGFA/golfo dolce game fisherman’s Assoc.

April 24th was the annual fisherman’s ball at FishHook Marina,Golfito.CR….Local Professional Captain’s and mates from the Osa,Zancudo and Golfito got together for an end of season fiesta and awards presentation with Capt.Ronny Calvo as master of Ceremony… Hardcore rock and roll by the Robby Clark Group provided the beat.Capt.Bobby McGuinness got Capt. of the Year (same award he just took last month at the annual IGFA awards banquet in Miami). In his acceptance speech he stressed the conservation of the resource to keep Golfito the top world record destination. Thumper’s own Carlos Lobo Vargas(Beto) won Professional Mate of the year with his fleet topping 20 Black and Blue Marlin,wired,billed and released.Beto will start Captain’s school in the off season this year.

Inta and I have arrived Golfito after a fun filled (even went to Sea World) trip to Ocean Beach for grandkids party.Capt.J.W.Teal from Last Stall just returned from 5 days at Banko Hannibal and had nothing good to report on the Marlin bite but 80 lbs. yellowfins were thick. (red tide covering much of area,Agura reef and Isla Montuosa were clean)so we are off tonight (full moon)to the 79 mile bank in CR with cousin Jimmy and family…Local inshore sailfish bite is red hot (20/30 shots a day) and the Mahi have come on…..We’re going to go deep for the Marlin then fall back inshore if they don’t show.
