The MFCC Group Trip to Costa Rica

Jim Murphy

This past December myself and a group from My Fishing Cape Cod traveled to Costa Rica, where we met Ryan for a week of fishing. During that week, we spent two days fishing by boat in the waters of the Golfo Dulce.

The Blackberry is a typical Tico boat, about 18 feet long, crafted mostly from fiberglass, with a shallow v-hull, low freeboard, and a blue roof supported by steel and wood framework.

We’d go on our way, and meet up with Chas and Dan later on.

We trudged down some stairs, through a short wooded slope, and walked on a sandy path amid the beach grass alongside a large bay.
