I have been fishing the Pacific waters off Panama and Costa Rica for over 24 years and have fished with every major fishing outfitter there is. Captain Skeet has more knowledge of the fish and the waters than all of them combines. He is a true professional who is willing to share his knowledge and fishing skills.He is also deeply passionate about your group catching fish. We went on the water with Captain Skeet for three days in mid August and we slammed the sail fish , mahi and even bottomed fish for grouper. Myself and friends cannot wait to get back on Bushwacker and nail some Blues. Thank you Capt Skeet see you this winter.

Skeet and his deck hands are the best of the best. Fishing trip of a lifetime. If you go fishing in Flamingo Bay Costa Rica I would always fish with Skeet on the Bushwacker. We will be going back for sure. Best experience ever. Thanks Capt. Skeet. You are an amazing Guide.

We fished with Captain Skeet on the Bushwacker for the fifth time and as always he did not disappoint. He and his crew are extremely professional and the and the Bushwacker is comfortable and setup to catch fish.

We love Flamingo Bay and the surrounding area. Check out the Bushwacker and Capt. Skeet.

My wife and I just returned from four (4) days of fishing with Capt Skeet and his fine crew. Even though Capt Skeet said the fishing was slow, we had an epic time, and over our 4 days fishing we were 1 for 2 on blue marlin (275 lbs), 20+ yellowfin tuna in the 25-35 lb range, 9+ mahi maki, and 7 sailfish. Capt Skeet allowed me to use my 16 wt fly rod to catch quite a few yellowfin tuna, at least until my arms couldn't handle any more. He and his crew worked super hard to make sure we were successful. The Bushwacker is a comfortable sport fishing vessel, and the crew made some pretty tasty sandwiches every day for lunch! My wife and I had a fantastic time and sincerely enjoyed being hosted by Capt. Skeet. We plan on fishing with him again, and I would recommend booking with him over anyone else in the region.

Captain skeet and his crew on the Bushwacker were all very very professional and knowledgeable. It was an all around top notch private fishing charter from start to finish. Possibly a day we’ll never forget. We had a great day going 2/3 on Mahi and 2/3 on Blue Marlin!! He is definitely the boat to use when coming to this area to visit!! Regardless of the day we had you can see he did his absolute best to get on us the fish and his mates were just as good and quick with rebaiting and getting lines in the water. Highly recommend. -Mike

We could not have asked for a better fishing day. Captain Skeet and his crew were amazing and went out of their way to make sure we had a great fishing experience. Myself and another dad took 4 excited boys out wanting to catch some big fish and we were not disappointed. Each boy caught a big fish--3 big sailfish and 1 marlin which was a whopper. 11 feet long and 350 pounds. Took him an hour and a half to get him in. Great experience and would highly recommend Captain Skeet.
We will definitely be going back to Costa Rica and definitely will call on Captain Skeet again.

The captain is a first class professional sport fisherman and his crew was outstanding. Our rookie group was able to catch Marlin and sailfish and we had a blast at the same time!
