Worldwide Popper, Jig & Big Game Fishing Holidays
Superb fishing, and totally excellent accommodation. The highlight of the week for me was a 26lb Jack Crevalle caught from the beach, it took line so fast I had to run 200 yards to keep up.
Another excellent stay in Funchal, Madeira at Casa Velha do Palheiro Estate's Quinta or Manor House Hotel. 5 Stars does not do it justice. It is beautiful and it's gardens exquisite. The food at hotel excellent, staff very friendly and go out of their way to assist you. The third visit now, and they remember us each time.
Everything laid on very well. Best part was the quality of the boats, the Skipper and towards the end of the trip, the fishing. Fishing improved as our technique improved but also moving into more productive GT water. Tips for GT Popper fishing- read and view more about GT popping techniques, talk to others who have popped before. we learned some more after our trip had finished which could have improved our landing rate success.
Thanks to all at Sportquest , we have just returned from a trip to Los Barriles, Mexico and everything was fantastic! We fished the 1st day from a panga boat inshore mainly for Tuna and it did not disappoint, we boated about 25 Tuna & Benito, tried for some Roosterfish but no luck. Would highly recommend Sportquest to anyone who is looking for a fishing adventure, this is the 2nd time I've used them and they are very good at what they do!
From the airport to the catamaran, fishing and back to airport everything extremely well organised and stress-free. Fishing was world class as usual with 7 days of non-stop action on the new bigger boats - which comfortably fishes 4 pax. A beautiful part of the world with many islands to stop and swim for lunch during the midday heat. We managed 32 species.
For my second trip to Costa Rica, I decided to take along my non-fishing partner Janine and once again left it to Sportquest to arrange 5 days fishing and a few extra spare days to relax with some excursions around the local area. Just as it did last year everything turned out to be absolutely fantastic.
This is the ultimate deepwater trip. Nothing pulls pound for pound like Yellowfin! We had several triple hook - ups and all landed fish up to 190 lbs. The hotel is great, 5 mins from boat, huge rooms + great food (cheap). Best boat + skipper you'll ever get. Thought Guatemala was unbeatable, I was wrong!
I just wanted to drop you all a line to say a huge thank you for making such a place that you can not only have fishing that's out of this world but the accommodation, hospitality and organisation that takes care of you from the second we arrived until we departedâ€¦with a small tear in your eyes. Well-done Sportquest Holidays.
We had an absolutely amazing time. Our guide Salamao Lopes on board the Balancal was an absolute gentleman from start to finish. You are dealing with a really good person and fisherman here so I'd advise to keep working with him into the future. Overall, we were very happy and I'll be in touch again in two years time to book another trip of a lifetime. Thanks for all your help.
Thanks everyone for giving me an unforgettable fishing trip with all the smashing of poppers and stick baits from GTs' and Tuna run with all the great services and nice accommodation provided at the Guesthouse. I will be back soon for another fishing trip.
