Hello from Costa Rica Fishing Capital Los Suenos!
The seas have been calm, and the skies have been sunny for the Los Suenos fishing offshore this week.
The sailfish bite has been a little slow considering the season. Most boats have been seeing four to eight sailfish per day.
The marlin bite has been steady and good - boats have been getting a shot or two at a marlin every day. In some cases they’re seeing as many as six in a day.
To help fill the day of fishing in Costa Rica, there has been a steady dorado/ mahi mahi bite. Most boats catch a mahi or two to take home for dinner. There have been a few yellowfin tunas caught this week which also make for a great dinner.
The billfish should be showing up in higher numbers in the next week or two, and bite should continue to improve over the next few months. Normally we will see Los Suenos peak billfish numbers in February through April.
The inshore fishing which had been slow as well the past couple weeks has turned on this week. We have been seeing lots of roosters - up to 80lbs. Cubera snappers in the 30-40lb range have also been moving in to rocks and reefs along the coast.
Until Next Week – Tight Lines!
