The teams fishing the Presidential Papagayo Cup witnessed some fine Guanacaste fishing this year! Famous for world class marlin fishing, the target species showed up to prove what a great area this is to sport fish. Our small fleet released 20 blue marlin and 17 sailfish during the 2015 competition.

Coming in third was Tranquilo with anglers Amanda and Ken Cofer, Bill Pino and Dennis Barbour. They scored 1600 points to come in third.
