Costa Rica Fishing Report June 2015

Costa Rica Fishing Director Crocodile Bay

The Direct Line Fishing Report by Todd Staley

Columbia Sportswear Pro Staffers and Media Members Visit Crocodile Bay – Shark Eats Half of Guests’ Snapper and Tuna and Marlin Show Up as Predicted.


I like it when I am right. According to my wife that’s not very often. When I said last report that the tuna and marlin should be rolling in any day, they made me a hero.

Mark Hettervig’s group pulled on a big yellowfin estimated at 200 lbs and it came unbuttoned after two hours. They did bring in enough tuna for sashimi and also boated a bunch of roosters during their stay.

Harold Odell fished with his granddaughter Kaity Box and got some nice fish also. Kaity got a big surprise when she ended up sharing her snapper for dinner with a big shark that wanted to have it for lunch.

columbia-crocodile-bay-visit-logoColumbia Sportswear was down with a group of pro staff, sports celebs and outdoor media to introduce their spring line of outdoor wear. The group landed over 100 fish including, marlin, sails, tuna, roosters, snapper, African pompano and more.


Offshore the tuna have been sporadic, making an appearance one day and not showing the next. Marlin have been hanging around trash lines and floating structure and as many as five a boat, have come up into the spread. A few sails are popping up here and there. Inshore has been very consistent. Every picture tells a story.
