Deep Sea Fishing Fun or Not


Deep Sea Fishing Fun or Not

I am not a big fan of fishing and when I was younger, around 10-11 years old, I was known as a tomboy. I used to fish with everybody, rip those worms apart, and go fishing. Not only that, but I really used to enjoy it. As I got older, I also became a vegan. So for me, fishing is a big no. However, I decided to try deep sea fishing, especially sports fishing, and here’s my full experience, that way you can decide if it’s for you or not.


At this point, we were living in Costa Rica, and we had a good friend that own a sports deep sea fishing charter. I guess you call it operator, they had their own boat. It was a really cool thing, and they invited us to go out. Normally these types of tours are between $$4 to $800 per day. So we’re like, yeah, why not? And it’s a catch and release. He totally does not believe in catching and not releasing. So that was a massive thing. We went on this boat. I have to say it was definitely exciting because the majority of fishing is being out in the water, and it can get quite boring.

So we ended up catching a massive fish, and it’s super exciting.

Beware of the tour operator you choose

I would recommend looking into the trustworthy ones, the ones that do catch and release like this one, there are a lot of operators and tours that do this. The ones that are shady and sketchy, don’t, and it is completely illegal for the most part.

You need to do your homework because you as a tourist who knowingly went into this tour operation will have to pay massive fines. So please be aware of all of those different things before you actually pay the money and get on with a trustworthy unit.

I’ll be honest with you, for me, I don’t think will ever, ever do that again. Even with the catch and release, you do end up ripping their face with a hook. It is pretty gruesome, even though they do stay alive. But they’re damaged and traumatized. But if you really don’t mind that, you can give it a try. It’s different, a whole experience.
