BOTE SUP Fishing Machaca In Costa Rica

When it comes to having a blast on a SUP board, floating a machaca river in Costa Rica is probably as good as it gets!

If you follow my youtube channel then you know this post is a little late. However, I felt this trip was worthy of some limelight on my website as well.

We took BOTE’s Inflatable HD SUP’s down an amazing river here in Costa Rica and ended up with some absolute cow machaca!

Take a look!


That machaca I caught was my personal best machaca and I am so stoked to have been able to land that fish. To get it via paddle board added an entirely new level of awesome to the day!

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of as well as our online fly shop, The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
