Throw a dart at a map of Costa Rica right now, and if it sticks near the water you will find good fishing there. The weather has also been cooperating, and as of last Sunday everyone on both coasts and inland was getting fish.

The top catch reported was a 750-pound black marlin, caught and released on Saturday by Michigan angler Craig Hunter on Randy Wilson's Talking Fish out of Tamarindo, on the northern Pacific coast.
