March 2019 – Costa Rica Fishing Report

Great weather continues, with sunny days in the upper eighties and light offshore breezes. The tuna have been around for the last few weeks and there have been some epic feedings with spotted dolphins, tuna, manta rays and sailfish all converging on bait balls. The tuna have been anywhere from ten-pounds all the way up to 200+ lbs. Last week we had an angler, Mr Harris from the UK, that hooked up a big tuna on a Penn 50 International and fought the fish for over three hours in the late afternoon.

February 2019 – Costa Rica Fishing Report

January historically is a transitional month. The marlin and dorado in November and December begin to taper off and the water temperature rises slightly with sailfish numbers increasing. This month has been basically true to form, though we are still waiting for the big push of sails. There have been some very good days with the sailfish so far this season, including a ten fish release day from one boat.

February Eco-Report

Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) have a history of visiting the waters around the Osa Peninsula from January through to May. Whale sharks are the largest of all sharks, and indeed the largest of any fish alive today. They feed on plankton and travel large distances to find enough food to sustain their huge size, and to reproduce. Whale sharks are found in all the tropical oceans of the world.

January 2019 – Costa Rica Fishing Report

In the waters off the Osa Peninsula, where the marlin action continues, we have had blue marlin being released almost every day in December. The strikingly beautiful blue marlin is the largest of the Atlantic marlins and one of the biggest fish in the world. The sailfish have been here in solid numbers and have been keeping the anglers busy in between marlin bites.
