Dan Ross is from Ilwaco, WA. Born at the mouth of the Columbia River, fishing has run its course and she has spent most of her life traveling and fishing in the great states of Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia. Dan spent the last 15 years in Costa Rica, what Dan calls the “best fishery in the world.”
Dan’s experience in Costa Rica is extensive, since it was fished from the southern tip of Costa Rica (Golfito) to the northern region (Papagayo), and everywhere, including the Caribbean side; one of your favorite places for some of the best fishing Tarpon in America. From the size of the hook and the brand, to the size of the leader and the leading team, to the proven and reliable techniques to hook Bill Fish, even the type of boat is taken into account, including those who raise fish and those who do not. has one Dan’s Maverick yacht fleet was built here in Jaco, Costa Rica and they are among the best boats to fish in the deep waters of Costa Rica.
