Good week all-around for Costa Rica fishing

August 9, 2012

Good fishing all around this week, which pleased both operators and anglers.

There was a fantastic bite still going on in Guanacaste, espescially off the Catalinas, where sailfish and marlin are keeping anglers busy, while a little further north – just outside Santa Rosa park – wahoo are being taken in big numbers. Inshore anglers are taking amberjack on both bait and jigs. Roosterfish as well as a few grouper have been reported.

The fish returned to the Los Sueños area, with some boats raising four to eight sails a day. Fishing had been a little slow lately, so this is good news. An occasional marlin is also popping up in the spread. One charter company in Quepos reported the recent appearance of a few sails and some tuna.

The marlin finally made the annual show in the Southern zone. Most of the fish are coming near floating logs. Tuna are also still present, and anglers are finding them almost daily. Jerry Sabino and Ron Wilson hit it just right, landing seven marlin in three days offshore. On their top day, they had 10 in the spread. Another day they caught and released 20 yellow fin tuna in the 30- to 60-pound range.

The ocean finally flattened out on the Caribbean side, and boats working outside are hooking tarpon. Inside, the snook bite is really strong a result of better patrolling against netters.
