Crocodile Bay Fishing Report for November 2023

Greetings from the stunning Osa Peninsula, home to Crocodile Bay and Botánika Resort! The fishing really delivered last month. November flew by and we are already in the holiday spirit here at Crocodile Bay. While October usually steals the show for dorado, November treated us to double-digit catches almost every day. Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) are swift and can snap up your bait in a flash. And, of course, they're not just great for the thrill of the catch, but also for a delicious dinner – a win-win for anglers!

Crocodile Bay Fishing Report for October 2023

As many of you know, October is typically the peak of the wet season here in Costa Rica, but this past month we were spoiled with calm seas and just a few showers, with most of them occurring in the afternoons.

Crocodile Bay Fishing Report for September 2023

Crocodile Bay Fishing Report for August 2023

August had a wonderful start to the month with an abundance of roosterfish, ranging from 20 to 60 lbs. Many ask, "What is the most effective way to target roosterfish?" At Crocodile Bay, what sets us apart is our versatility in targeting these prized fish. We use a variety of techniques, from live bait to jigging and casting artificial lures. Throughout August, due to natural debris from the rains and shifting currents, we noticed that roosterfish were more inclined to go for topwater action. Witnessing them leap out of the water to strike the lure is a thrilling experience. Our guests had a blast.

Meanwhile, offshore expeditions proved even more rewarding, with sailfish, marlin, and monster yellowfin tuna making their appearances.
