Costa Rica Fishing

In the arena of sport fishing, few places compare with Los Sueños Costa Rica. We are internationally considered the “Fishing Capital of the World” and a target destination for sport fishing. World famous for billfish, Costa Rica is host to numerous international fishing tournaments including the Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown and the Lucas Oil Offshore World Championship. In 2017, first place went to our friends aboard the 38’ Custom for their assistance.

Finest Pacific Ocean Fishing

The rich warm waters of Costa Rica’s Pacific Ocean attract many different species of fish throughout the year.

The predatory fish that sport fishermen enjoy are attracted by the numerous plankton and feeder fish. The iconic Marlin, both blue and black, the glittery acrobatic Dorado or Mahi Mahi, and the porpoise-loving Yellowfin Tuna can all be found offshore.

Home to so many different species of fish, Costa Rica boasts 84 International Game Fishing Association (IGFA) world records for Snook, Snapper, and Dorado, while Los Sueños Marina itself holds IGFA records for sailfish, Marlin, and Roosterfish.

Inland and Freshwater, too

Our landscape is full of waterways: lagoons, lakes, and rivers stretching hundreds of miles. If freshwater fishing appeals, you will happily discover snook (the IGFA record holder), tarpon (as large as 200 pounds), and guapote (a leopard spotted cichlid). The waters here are teeming with fish inland and offshore, a true anglers paradise.

Is it any surprise Costa Rica reigns supreme in reputation as a sport fishing destination?

Roosterfish
inshore | Papagayo Bay, Los Suenos.

Description: The gorgeous, fanning dorsal on this species give the Roosterfish its colorful name. Roosters are best found along the surf and over the sandy ocean floor within moderate depths. Costa Rica is on track to knock the current world-record for this fish, (114 lbs., off of Baja Mexico), off the charts. The Rooster is an aggressive predator, which makes it an exciting catch. Best catching depth is approximately 50-60 feet.

Best Months: Available all year, with the highest density between November – March.

Snapper
inshore | Papagayo Bay, Los Suenos

Description: Snappers have a large variety of species. These shallow water fish are found in shore, along the rocky bottom of the Pacific. The Cubera is the largest of the Snappers, often weighing in at over 100 lbs. Dog Snappers are the largest of the Pacific, with the world record of 78 lbs. held in Costa Rica. These are tough fighters that make for a delicious meal.

Best Months: Available all year, with the highest density between July - December.

Wahoo
inshore | Los Suenos

Description: Wahoo travel alone or in small schools of less than 10. Though they are found both in and off shore, they prefer rocky points and islands to open ocean. This salt water fish is considered a delicacy and it puts up a serious fight.

Best Months: Available all year, with the highest density between May - August.

Marlin
offshore | Golfito, Drake’s Bay and Los Suenos.

Description: Either blue or black Marlin can easily approach 600 pounds, and because of the power, size and persistence, each fish is one of the most highly prized by all anglers. Marlin can be found from the Southern part of Costa Rica in the Golfito area, all the way up to the Northern Pacific Coast.

Best Months: December to April, with Black Marlin showing up in April and May. Smaller, Striped Marlin are caught year-round.
