The morning of January 27th began like any other morning in Costa Rica. Lauren cooked the crew an amazing breakfast, while we kept a lookout for monkeys in the trees.
Over breakfast I chatted with MFCC members John Silva and Mike Hollander about the action along the beach. A couple days earlier Mike had lost a good fish on the beach, and John had received a few hits.
The surf casting had not been "lights out" by any means. We had been working very hard for not so many bites. Yet the action in Costa Rica can change abruptly. Along this beach, the fish seem to always be on the move.
We finished our breakfast by 9AM and were eager to start making some casts. Lauren, John's wife Michelle, and Mike's wife Lisa grabbed their beach towels and books and headed down to the shore. Mike and I grabbed our fishing poles.
