An Introduction to Costa Rica Fishing
by Fishing Director Todd Staley

Fishing Director Todd StaleyThe tide had just turned and was slowly pushing toward the open ocean. The peak of the reef reaches up 83 feet below the surface. The volcanic terrain sits in the middle of the Golfo Dulce, in Costa Rica's southern Pacific region, and the underwater structure is 120 feet below.

Bright orange cubera snapper hover just below the slick surface like a field strewn with huge Halloween pumpkins. An angler tosses a lively blue runner over the side and the nervous bait races back to the boat.

Like a huge fireball, a cubera explodes on the surface and throws water in every direction. Line screams off the reel. Even the blister raised on the thumb, as extra pressure is applied to the drag, is not enough. The snapper's power is too much and it escapes into a rocky cavern below. The fisherman is left with the lasting memory of having a runaway freight train on the end of his line.

The Costa Rica fishing stories like this are among the reasons business Robin Williams (not the actor) chose Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica, located on the Golfo Dulce, to build his dream Costa Rica Fishing project, Crocodile Bay Resort

Fantastic Costa Rica Fishing!
It is the dance of the sailfish and the lightning speed of the marlin that that attract most anglers to the Osa Peninsula for a taste of the worlds best fishing experience. When fishing these waters it is not uncommon to raise more than 20 billfish in a days fishing. Most dorado coming to the dock have been over 30 lbs with Tuna always plentiful. You can likely catch a billfish any day of the year,with January through April the top months for marlin and sailfish along this region of the southern coast. The fishing stays strong in the summer and fall months with a good showing of marlin in August and November, while fishing the months during and just after the rains produce more dorado, as the debris washed out of the rivers forms the inshore trash lines they feed under. Football-size tuna are almost always present and sometimes those that top out at 300 pounds. READ More about Costa Rica Fishing at Crocodile Bay Resort Here>>
