Marlin and more Marlin!!! It is going crazy everywhere... There is great fishing going on right now down south as well as a here in the Jaco/Los Suenos area. Out of Golfito, Bobby reported raising 20 in his last trip and he had a blast releasing as many as the clients could pull-in. There has been some Tuna in close popping as well, so everyone has had a cooler full of Yellow fin. I recommend you hurry and get in-touch with us for a Marlin trip that you will never forget.
We are hard at work putting our Vacation Rental pages together and should be there in a couple more weeks, so please keep an eye out for them as there will be a few of my hand picked Hotels listed as well as Condo's and Private Villas both on Jaco Beach, Los Suenos Marina area, and the rest of Costa Rica too.

Costa Rica Fishing Report - June 2008

June Fishing Report

It took a couple weeks for the fishing and the water to get back to almost normal after tropical Storm Alma pounded Costa Rica at the end of May.

We had more than 2 feet of rain that week and it turned the ocean a muddy brown. Sometimes when we get heavy rains followed by hot sunshine we are prone to getting an algae bloom in the water that’s called “Red Tide”.

The Red Tide started down by Dominical and within a week had moved into the Jaco area. The Red Tide is never good for fisherman…but the impact has been less than expected. Boats are still going out and guys were still catching fish.

RJ Lilley had an interesting day on the beach. He caught a 10 pound snook on a crappie jig fishing in the river mouth in Jaco. Moments later RJ had a save a drunk lady that tried to cross the river mouth not realizing it had been washed out by the rain and in now 8 feet deep with strong currents. Way to go Reggie…karma points.

Captain Kevin on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” has been banging around the inshore rocks all week and picking up good numbers. The highlight of the week was probably the 125 plus pound goliath grouper they caught on a butterfly jig. Yesterday Captain Kevin caught a nice cubera, a mackerel, a couple roosterfish and a half a dozen big jack crevelle. Today they caught a 50 plus pound Cubera and 4 Roosterfish with one of them being in the 70 pound range.

Captain Jerry on the Estrella del Mar took a group offshore because they wanted Tuna. Jerry fished out by the craters and caught 2 big Mahi Mahi in the 45 pound range, a sailfish, a striped marlin and a 50 pound yellowfin tuna. That group ate well for a few days.

Captain RJ has had a good week…on Monday he took a family out that had never fished…they ended the day with 2 big wahoo, 5 nice yellowfin tuna and a 700 plus pound black marlin…once again the area around the “26″ produces a big marlin. RJ followed that up the next day with 7 roosterfish, 6 nice tuna and a 40 pound wahoo.

The guys on the “R&J” did a 1/2 day inshore trip with some friends and caught a half dozen roosterfish not far from the marina.

Captain Brandon on the Fish Whistle has been fishing up in the gulf and having good luck on the inshore and bottom fishing. Brandon has been using butterfly jigs in 60 - 80 feet of water and has been catching some big sea bass, roosterfish, snapper and groupers.

Captain RJ on the Predator has been at the rock almost everyday the past week. They have been averaging 5 or 6 fish a day including some 35 pound wahoo, some 25 pound tuna, some 20 pound mahi mahi and a 400 plus pound black marlin. The big marlin hit a ballyhoo while trolling for wahoo. As most marlin will do he put on a good air show with some great leaps. One of the leaps was too close for comfort when mr marlin almost landed in the boat. The big fish slammed into the boat tower just a couple feet from the captain and clients. RJ said it was like being hit by another boat and they were lucky no one was hurt.

Captain Dave on the Missbehavin took a group out to the rock and caught 6 nice wahoo and several 25 pound yellowfin tuna.

July Fish Forecast --

Look for July to be similar to the end of June. Hopefully the Red Tide will clear out so things can get back to normal.

Expect the 26 rock and inshore rocks to be fished hard as guys try and put clients on some fish.

When boats go offshore the tuna bite will be good if the foreign fishing fleet will stop fishing inside the legal boundary. The big foreign owned tuna boats seem to be more aggressive than ever and I predict more “run ins” with sport fisherman in the near future.

The mahi mahi fishing should also be good around the trash/current lines and the sailfish and marlin bite should be average for this time of year.

They boats may need to run farther until the chocolate brown water disappears…look for the bite to past 30 miles.

July Fish of the Month – Yellowfin Tuna

Over the next few months there should be good numbers of Yellowfin Tuna caught on the Pacific coast. Tuna are one of the oceans most prized fish. Fishing boats from all over the come to Costa Rican waters to fish tuna…sometimes legally and sometimes illegally.

Yellowfin Tuna are caught throughout the year on the Central Pacific coast. It’s not uncommon to pick up a 100 plus pound Yellowfin when fishing for Sailfish. The big Tuna come and go all year long but June through September are normally the best months for 200 pounders.

Tuna are generally caught 10-30 miles out. Yellowfin will bite on the same lures and ballyhoo rigs that are used to catch Sailfish. Tuna are usually found feeding with Dolphins especially Spinner Dolphins. If you can find feeding dolphins you can target tuna with cedar plugs and deeper running trolling lures like the green machine. Live bait is best for the big Tuna…get in front of the feeding pack and drop your live bait down and hold on.

If you are targeting Tuna make sure you bring some wasabi paste and soy sauce with you on the boat. Few things can compare with eating fresh sashimi caught an hour ago. A couple cold beers and you’re set.

Send me your reports and photos today!!!

Good Luck and Good Fishing,

Costa Rica Fishing Report - Los Suenos - Fishing returns to normal

Howdy,

There has been some red tide move into the area the past week but it hasn't hurt the fishing as much as expected. There were a couple days that were slow but for the most part everyone has been catching some fish.

The 26 rock has been hot with this past week good numbers of wahoo, tuna, dorado and a nice marlin being caught.

Captain RJ on the Predator has been at the rock almost everyday the past week. They have been averaging 5 or 6 fish a day including some 35 pound wahoo, some 25 pound tuna, some 20 pound mahi mahi and a 400 plus pound black marlin. I heard the news of RJ's marlin before he was back at the marina. The big marlin hit a ballyhoo while trolling for wahoo. As most marlin will do he put on a good air show with some great leaps. One of the leaps was too close for comfort when mr marlin almost landed in the boat. The big angry fish slammed into the boat tower just a couple feet from the captain and clients. RJ said it was like being hit by another boat and they were lucky no one was hurt.

Captain Dave on the Missbehavin took a group out to the rock and caught 6 nice wahoo and several 25 pound yellowfin tuna.

Captain Jeremy and the guys on the Desperado went way out a few days ago...they ran out 50 miles for a 35 pound mahi mahi...luckily the guys on The Bite found the tuna and contacted Jeremy. They picked up and ran 15 miles to join the tuna bite and caught some nice fish. Most of the fish were in the 35-45 pund range...they did have one hogg on that was estimated at over 100 pounds, that fish was lost.

Thanks and good luck,

Bubba

Costa Rica Fishing Report - Los Suenos Marina - May 2008

May Fishing Report

May is a transition month for the weather in Costa Rica and the last week in May proved it. The first three weeks of the month started out like April ended. The bite was average with most boats catching a few sailfish, a few mahi mahi and maybe even getting a shot at a marlin or tuna.

But then the rains came and kept almost everyone from fishing the final week of May. The storms pounded the fleet in Quepos sinking a dozen boats. Some of the nicest boats in Quepos were no match for Mother Nature.

Captain Carlos on the “R&J” had a great day with 4 Sailfish, a Stripe Marlin, a Blue Marlin, a Yellowfin Tuna and a Dorado….That’s a super slam in CR I think. Then today they went 3 for 5 on Sailfish and caught a nice Dorado….they were fishing out by the craters.

Captain Bill on the “Sailfish” Caught 2 Sailfish, a Striped Marlin a few Tuna and a Dorado.

Captain Brandon on the “Fish Whistle” caught a Sailfish, a Blue Marlin, a Striped Marlin, a Yellowfin Tuna and three 50 pound Dorados.

Captain Dana on the “Hoos your Daddy” caught a Sailfish, a Blue Marlin, several Yellowfin and a couple Dorado.
Captain Jorge on the “Barrilata” did a half day trip about 15 miles out and caught 4 Dorado…a couple 30 pounds and a couple 20 pounds.

Captain RJ ran the “Tres Amigos” and caught 7 Sailfish and a couple Dorado.
The guys on the “Dream 2″ caught a big big Yellowfin Tuna…rumored over 200 pounds.

Captain Kevin on the “Hoo’s Up” caught 2 Sailfish and 2 Mahi Mahi.

Captain Dave on the “Missbehavin” took Dave the dental patient out for a day in the rain…they did catch a couple sailfish and a few dorado.

June Fish Forecast --

Look for June to be similar to the first 3 weeks of May. It will probably take a week or two for the water to clean up but the guys that do go out will continue to average a few Sailfish, some dorado, some tuna and maybe a marlin if there karma is good.

They boats may need to run farther until the chocolate brown water disappears…look for the bite to past 30 miles.

June Fish of the Month – Dorado, Mahi Mahi, Dolphin fish

Over the next few months there will be lots of Dorado caught on the Pacific coast.

With the rains comes the debris washes out into the ocean. In time this debris acts as cover and attracts game fish.

Dorado from 5 to 75 pounds can be found in and around floating logs, cargo nets and trash lines.

Where there is one Dorado there are usually more. It’s not uncommon to catch a dozen fish if you get into a good bunch. The big ones run in smaller groups usually a big bull Dorado with a couple of lady friends.

Dorado are great fighters and lots of fun to catch. If you’ve never been out fishing or want to fish on a budget now is the time to get out for a half day of Dorado fishing. Grab a few friends and go fishing…prices start at $450 and include drinks and snacks.

The best part of Dorado fishing is having a fish taco night with your fresh caught Mahi Mahi….mmmmm….delicious.

Good Luck and Good Fishing,

Bubba
