Offshore Bites ⚓🛥️🐟
January in Los Suenos is prime season for offshore anglers, with an exhilarating surge in numbers for two iconic species: Sailfish and Marlin. The vibrant Pacific waters off Costa Rica's coast become a playground for anglers seeking the thrill of a Sailfish encounter. Revered for their acrobatic displays and high-speed runs, Sailfish are a favorite among anglers for their challenging fights and striking, vibrant colors. During this time, the average size of Sailfish caught ranges from 80 to 120 pounds, offering anglers the opportunity to wrestle with these majestic creatures in a spectacular fight.
Meanwhile, the pursuit of Marlin adds another layer of excitement, with skilled anglers deploying techniques such as trolling with ballyhoo or live bait to entice these powerful predators. Marlin, known for their strength and elusive nature, captivate anglers worldwide, making the offshore waters of Los Suenos a must-visit destination for those seeking the ultimate big-game fishing experience. The combination of the incredible Sailfish numbers and the allure of Marlin makes January a thrilling time for offshore fishing in Los Suenos.
In the inshore waters of Los Suenos during January, anglers will find themselves immersed in an abundance of Roosterfish. Recognized for their distinctive appearance and impressive fighting spirit, Roosterfish are a sought-after catch that keeps anglers returning to these tropical waters year after year. As we move into January, we are seeing Roosterfish sizes range from 20 to 60 pounds, offering a formidable challenge for anglers of all levels. What makes Roosterfish particularly popular is not only their powerful runs but also their unique rooster comb-like dorsal fin, a feature that distinguishes them and adds to the allure of the catch. As these dynamic predators hunt the inshore waters for their prey, anglers revel in the opportunity to test their skills against these notoriously tough, iconic fish. With Roosterfish numbers at their highest of the year, January is an optimal time for those who relish the thrill of inshore fishing.
