Jackpot Sport Fishing reviews
I was hesitate a lot about go or not, as im not on high budget, but the positive reviews helped me in decison as i didnt find any bad. And its worth it :) 1 marlin, 1 sailfish, cca 20 dorado on one... more »
After being on several boats I can say this was my favorite - Benn and Manuel are awesome, super comfortable people to spend a day with, and really make an effort to make sure you get what you want... more »
one word ... WOW. There really isn't a better way to describe our trip with Ben and his crew. This was hands down the best fishing charter I have ever been on, and I have been on many charters. The crew worked harder and faster than any fishing charter crew I have seen. They were constantly attending to our needs and making sure we had a productive fishing trip. We caught over 40 mahi mahi! Ben, the boat owner, takes so much pride in his boat, crew, and trips that he personally went with us to serve as one of two mates to his very experienced captain. These guys put us on fish almost immediately and never stopped. In addition, Ben took time to explain different fishing strategies and setups, which we all appreciate as fishermen. We had a blast cutting up with Ben, Carlos, and Jackson. We felt like we walked away with new friends. Ben and his crew made our trip to Costa Rica an experience we will not forget. We will certainly be back to see the guys hopefully next year!!
Me and a few buddies went out with Jackpot and the crew last week after reading multiple reviews and doing phone interviews with a few other guides. I've been hunting and fishing my whole life. I've never had a guide that was this attentive and engaging. We had a blast and caught all the fish we could handle. My friends and I were talking about what we felt made the difference and it was definitely the dynamic of the boat owner(business owner) being on the boat. Having a captain and a first mate to concentrate on the fishing lets the owner concentrate on making friends out of his customers and to teach them a little about the "why's" behind the fishing. When I'm back in Costa Rica, there's no reason to book any other service than this one. Top rate in every way!
