Tuna Fishing Month

Welcome to Costa Rica Fishing in July

Offshore fishing from Los Suenos has been great for tuna. Yellow-fin tunas have been very consistent over the past several weeks.

Most catches are ranging from 40 to 60 pounds, but we often catch them much larger. Finding spinner dolphins with birds is the key to catching the adult tunas that travel with them. Fishing for tuna can be some of the best sport fishing Costa Rica has to offer.

Fishing around floating debris and wood which is common to come across most days this time of year, can be loaded with small tunas 3 to 20 pounds. Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) of all sizes, hundreds, or even thousands of them from 3 to 50 pounds can also be found around this floating debris.

The marlin fishing has been strong. We average about a shot per day at one trolling after finding something floating with the dorados and small tunas. We are regularly getting multiple marlin bites when live baiting with small tunas and bonitos.

The sailfish numbers have been low over the past couple weeks, but we usually get two to four sailfish bites per day while fishing from Los Suenos.

The inshore fishing from Los Suenos has been consistent with roosterfish and deeper reefs are holding Amberjacks, jacks, various snappers (including Cuberas), small tunas, small Wahoo, bonitos and more.

On some occasions we catch sails and marlin live baiting around some inshore reefs.

Well, that’s it for this week’s Costa Rica Fishing Report. Be sure to check out our Los Suenos charter section for the best boats, at the best price!
