Offshore Costa Rica Fishing Species

Costa Rica BillfishingMarlin — The "lady in the blue dress" or Blue Marlin is the most common of our Marlins and cruise our cobalt waters all year. They peak in November and December as well as March and April. Black Marlin are most abundant in July and August and few Striped Marlin are around at the same time.

Sailfish — Again year round when a half dozen are common any day of the year. From November to May the numbers increase and days of 12 fish or more are common.

Dorado — Any day of the year, common January through may and very abundant November and December.

Tuna — Yellowfin is the main species. The big boys, those 100 to 300 pounds can test your back any day of the year if you are lucky enough to come across a school of porpoises offshore. The big Tuna swim with them and the feed on the same baitfish. "football size tunas hang around floating debris or peak in schools in July and August and November and December. No wonder the Marlin peak at the same time.

Wahoo — a Wahoo can surprise you any day of the year but are not common in this area.
