Fishing slows in Guanacaste off Pacific coast

first_imgThe wind has hampered most of the fishing off the Guanacaste area. Still, those who put up with the bouncy ocean off Playa del Coco are getting a marlin once in a while. Most of the fishing has been restricted to the inshore areas protected from the wind, and lots of snapper and roosterfish have been keeping inside anglers happy.The fishing has slowed some off Los Sueños, and anglers are having to run far offshore to find much action. Again, inshore has become an option and reports of a few nicely sized grouper have been phoned in. Roosterfish and jacks have been active around the shoreline.Down south, captains have been scratching their heads because the action is so different from day to day. Two days ago, it was tough to raise a half-dozen sails and then the action turned on yesterday with boats raising 18 to 30 sails apiece. Only a couple marlin have made an appearance lately.The big story down south was Oscar Villalobos’s photo of a hundred-pound roosterfish. The owner of Las Isles Lodge reports that they have had several big roosters this week at Matapalo but it has been a long time since anyone has seen a monster of this size. The world record is 114 pounds.Over on the Caribbean, the tarpon action is hot on the days you get outside and a few snook are still hitting jigs and trolled Rapalas on the inside.Fishing was much slower on the second leg of the Club Amateur de Pesca National Sailfish Tournament. Doming Dominquéz came from behind to win the second leg followed by Luciano Beeche and Alberto Laurenchic. There is one leg left before a National Champion will be declared.Current Standings: 400 SAMBA 1200 Pinto Fernando 2000 GALLO PINTO Alonso Guillermo Ortiz Henri Paul Saborio Alvaro 200 Molina Jaime Estrada Gustavo II Round 800 Dominguez Domingo Laurencich Alberto Poma Claudio PARTICIPANT 900 BOAT Liberman Luis TOTAL 400 300 Schifter Jose 400 Soto Orlando 100 2400 300 Seevers Ricardo 1200 400 Gutiérrez Carlos Edo. 200 400 Pinchanski Johnny 300 300 300 1100 1100 400 400 400 Rudelman Melvin 1000 200 TOTAL 100 Carvajal Rodolfo Guzman Adrian MARTINI 12000 200 600 400 100 0 400 900 200 2000 200 TOTAL 200 IV Round 300 100 TOTAL 300 0 III Round SIRENA Gutiérrez Jorge N. 400 700 200 100 I Round 1200 400 Sesin Orlando 100 Chacon Luis Ml. 1200 200 III Round 400 TRITON Beeche O.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Oakland selected Iowa offensive tackle Robert Gallery second overall, and he would go on to start for seven years and play in 104 games.Fifteen years later, Fitzgerald is 227 games deep in his career and set to break another record.With eight more catches, Fitzgerald will surpass Jerry Rice’s 1,281 as a member of the San Francisco 49ers for the most in NFL history with a single team.“The records are really not that meaningful to me,” Fitzgerald said. “I don’t ever talk about them, I don’t ever go home and talk to my kids, ‘Hey, you know I’ve caught more passes with one team more than anybody in history.’“‘That’s cool, dad, let’s go play lacrosse now.’” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments   Share   Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Trent Sherfield (16) makes a catch in front of cornerback Deatrick Nichols (39) during an NFL football practice Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) In the midst of the rookie’s live lessons Sunday, Fitzgerald surpassed Terrell Owens for second on the all-time receiving yards list.“Being able just to share that field with him, I’ll be able to tell my kids I was on the field with Larry when he got that. It’s just a blessing, man. I’m grateful for the opportunity.”FITZ THE RAIDERFitzgerald admitted this week that there was a time when he thought his career could begin with the Raiders.In the 2004 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers drafted Eli Manning first overall and traded him to the New York Giants in a package for quarterback Philip Rivers.The Raiders held the second pick.“Mike Lombardi, who was the general manager at the time, you know, he went to Valley Forge Military Academy where I went,” Fitzgerald said. “We kind of connected at the combine. He kind of told me what he felt about me and the plans they would have if I were to come out there.“I remember right after the Giants drafted and the Raiders were on the clock, Mike actually called me. I was thinking that they were going to take me. He was calling to let me know they were going in another direction. Mr. Davis (Owner Al Davis) decided they were going in another direction. It was a real class move to let me know and I appreciate that.” Top Stories TEMPE, Ariz. — Garnering buzz throughout training camp, Trent Sherfield wasn’t a surprise to make the Arizona Cardinals’ 53-man roster.The undrafted rookie out of Vanderbilt beat out veterans Brice Butler and Greg Little to stick, but he’s needed to be patient as his team forged through the 2-7 season so far.By its actions, Arizona made it clear that youth development alongside future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald was a priority in the wide receiver room. The Cardinals committed to Sherfield, fellow rookie Christian Kirk and second-year pro Chad Williams from the start of the year, but Sherfield was the last of those players to get a chance to play. When it came to that Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, he knew the significance.“It felt good, man, just being able to go out there and get my feet wet a little bit,” he said Friday. “I did OK. I had a few mistakes here and there.”Related LinksCardinals leading tackler, Budda Baker, ruled out against RaidersThe Pat Mahomes Challenge is bad for the worldWeek 11 NFL injury report: Oakland Raiders vs. Arizona CardinalsBené Benwikere continues patching holes for CardinalsSherfield didn’t record a reception, but he’ll get another shot to shine Sunday at State Farm Stadium against the Oakland Raiders as Williams sits out once again due to an ankle injury.Sherfield’s debut beyond special teams duty was a learning experience. Cameras captured him taking cues from Fitzgerald, the 15-year pro in the middle of the game. The rookie said his mistakes in 53 snaps were mostly about recognizing coverages.Spending time with Fitzgerald has been a gift in itself, Sherfield said. The rookie has hit up his veteran about everything from budgeting money to relationship advice.Sherfield is taking in all of that — and his snaps alongside Fitzgerald — as he attempts to build on the beginnings of his own career.“Being able to have one of the greatest to learn from is such a blessing. Being able to just talk with him back and forth, he’s letting me know what I can do better on this route or whatever it may be,” Sherfield said.last_img read more
