Costa Rica Fishing Report February 11, 2011

Postby DRSportfishing » Fri Feb 11, 2011 2:38 pm

After taking a trip this past Wednesday with two new clients, it is clear to see that the sailfish and marlin are still lurking here in Costa Rica waters in GREAT numbers. We must have seen three dozen sails and a half-dozen marlin a few miles out from of Jaco and Los Suenos in the Central Pacific. We were able to raise a few of those sails and marlin to the teasers, but our client didn’t have much luck getting them on his fly, as it was his first time fly fishing for billfish. He also had a chance at a beautiful dorado, and fortunately we got one of those to the boat so that we could enjoy it for dinner.

Reports on both coasts of Costa Rica have been solid, and the fishing is picking up again after a bit of a lull for part of January. Boats out of Quepos are reporting consistent marlin action every trip, while also running into huge schools of yellowfin, with tuna up to 250 pounds. Some boats are getting 10-12 shots at sails per day and at least 1 shot at marlin, while one of our captains in Golfito reported going 9 for 16 on sails in a recent trip. These marlin coming to the boats are huge, with reports of 300 and 400 pound blues being released a few times a week, along with some nice stripeys and black marlin. Roosterfishing has been very strong recently in Golfito and around the Los Suenos area as well, with one of captains getting 5 to the boat yesterday, one over 80 pounds. Other anglers are also reporting catching a few wahoo, snapper, snook, grouper, and some jack, just some usual suspects here in Costa Rica.

On the Caribbean side, snook fishing has slowed down a bit, but the tarpon fishing continues to be great. The canals in and around Tortuguero as well as near Rio Colorado are very productive, as they usually are. Reports have anglers getting at least 6 shots at tarpon per trip, with one trip having nearly two-dozen on in one day. Snook are being caught, just not as frequently as normal. Even still, some boats are landing 5 or 6 fat snook per trip, along with machacas and jack, among others. The fishing continues to be incredible here in Costa Rica, and we at DRSportfishing are more than happy to help you plan your amazing adventure here. Please visit us at for more information.
