This is our second trip and second time fishing with Benn and Manuel. Once again the friendly atmosphere onboard the Good Day was awesome. Over two days of fishing we caught 8 sails, 5 tuna, and a big Darado. We were treated first class all the way! As a matter of fact, Benn went above and beyond — helping us get COVID test at the marina. We look forward to the next time we can get back to Quepos!

Fishing with Benn and Manuel was an amazing experience. I have fished with many Sportfishing companies in many countries. It is not too often you get a lifelong Captain with 15 years on the same boat, with the owner, who has fished the World for years and accomplished what we dream of as a fisherman, as your crewman. We fished live bait and squid for tuna, boating 3 nice yellowfin, then switched to sailfish, going 6 for 7 with doubleheader’s on all 3 hookups. The boat was tip top shape, the gear too. The experience of spending the day with Manuel and Benn is amazing. I will be back with good friends for a 7 day trip. If you want an amazing experience, look these guys up, you won’t be disappointed, and will be back

I HIGHLY recommend Benn and Jackpot Sport Fishing. It was an incredible experience. Benn is very professional, kind, knowledgeable, patient, and will make sure you have a one of a kind experience. It was the best part of my 10-day trip in Costa Rica!

My friends & i came back to the states with a ton of tuna. It doesn’t get better than that! Can’t wait to do it again!

True masters of their craft!! My fiancé lost a huge marlin the first day and Manuel and Benn went above and beyond and were able to somehow find another one for him!! This made our trip to Costa Rica and we can’t wait to come back fishing on the Good Day!

Anyone looking for an outstanding inshore or offshore experience needs to call Benn at Jackpot Sport Fishing. As an experienced off shore fishing family we booked the Good Day for both off and in-shore trips. Benn knows his stuff, I learned alot and the family had an amazing two days on the water. Completely exceeded expectations. Thanks again Benn, see you next year.
