Crocodile Bay Resort Opens November 1

On November 1, we start fishing again. I feel like we are getting paroled, and there is nothing like the salt air and a cobalt sea to liberate ones soul. After being prisoners for so many months there will be nothing more exciting than the sound of line racing off the reel when a big fish makes the first run. I so need that adrenalin rush.

And what a great time to re-open. The fall marlin season will be in full swing and historically, and the dorado bite will be going on with the yellowfin tuna busting bait shoals offshore. The sails are not here in big numbers yet, but there are some cruising the area and they are usually hungry.

During these times, inshore has been very good for local fishermen with roosterfish and snapper. The roosterfish has always been a catch and release species at Crocodile Bay, but now has protected status all over Costa Rica so they must be released. If you have never caught one, a day of inshore fishing is a must, as they are a very worthy opponent.
Diego and Erickson have been working on the fleet, tackle and the pier to make things run as smoothly as possible when we open November 15th. Of course, the rest of the staff misses all of you too, as many of you are like family.
So the countdown has officially started. In a couple of months, the sweetest words in the world will be, FISH ON!
