The Pelagic School of Fishing - Costa Rica

At the Pelagic School of Fishing, we make fishing fun while coaching you through a wide variety of techniques and angling styles to make you a better fisherman. Join us at Club Pelagic - Costa Rica, where our highly experienced Pelagic Pro Instructors will teach you their tips and tricks from decades of experience in competitive sport fishing ventures around the globe. Whether you have fished once and simply have a passion to learn more, or you have the skillset of a lifetime big game angler, the Pelagic School of Fishing will hone your skills and elevate your angling prowess for wherever your next adventure takes place.



Costa Rica offers the best and most-diverse fishing waters on the planet, and at the Pelagic School of Fishing our professional instructors offer personalized on-the-water instruction on how to locate, hook, fight, and land a variety of big game offshore and inshore species while providing an incredible curriculum on prepping and rigging tackle for a multitude of fishing situations. Our coaching staff went above and beyond to provide hands-on instruction for techniques when wiring billfish and for gaffing large tuna, which our students really enjoyed.

During our recent Pelagic School of Fishing session in April 2021, our students released double digit numbers of Pacific sailfish each day offshore aboard our custom 58' Garlington Sportfishing Yacht "PELAGIC". The class also boated yellowfin tuna up to 100-lbs and dorado up to 40-lbs, which made for some incredible fish tacos back at home-base, Club Pelagic. Fishing inshore along Costa Rica’s rugged Pacific coast, our students landed trophy-sized roosterfish up to 50-lbs as well some hard-fighting cubera snapper and beautiful corvina while taking in some breathtaking scenery.
