Fishing along the Central Pacific Coast in early February is a dream. The weather conditions are ideal, and the fish are biting both inshore and offshore. When you are ready to book your first fishing excursion of the season, February is an excellent month to get started.
February's fishing weather could not be better in Jaco and Los Suenos. We are well into the dry season and are not expecting a considerable amount of rain until the rainy season approaches in summer.
The fishing temperatures are ideal, reaching anywhere from 80°F to 95°F. But the average wind speed of 4.6 mph makes the surface temperatures consistently warm, which is ideal for some of the most popular catches of the season.
As you prepare for your fishing excursion, you may be wondering what types of tasty bites you can prepare to catch. Fortunately, there are plenty to reel in both inshore and offshore.
If you are more inclined to inshore fishing opportunities, you will be excited to find out that roosterfish are still prime. It is the peak of the roosterfish season, and these bites are going to give you a run for your money, as they are some of the most aggressive fish to reel in. Generally, you can expect to find roosterfish at depths as low as 50-60 feet.
The bad news is roosterfish season is on its way out. While you can still bring in roosterfish weighing in at as much as 100 pounds, with the season winding down, now is the time to get your roosterfish on the hook.
Offshore fishing in Costa Rica is often action-packed, no matter what time of year you book your excursion. However, since we are right in the middle of our Costa Rican verano, offshore fishing opportunities are just delightful.
Offshore fish tend to be one of the most exciting catches to reel in. In particular, you can expect to find sailfish peeking mid-February. Since sailfish are some of the fastest swimmers in the sea, you can expect these offshore fish to put up a fight.
When fishing offshore, you can also expect to find yellowfin tuna. These are some of the most coveted fish to catch, as these enormous fish can be reeled in weighing at 300 or more pounds. Let's not forget the reliable black, striped, and blue marlin, as February marks the peak of its season.
Whether you decide to stick inshore or branch out to offshore fishing, February is going to be prime fishing conditions for your charter excursion.
Early February fishing in Los Suenos is perfect. The fish are biting every day, there are plenty of catches both inshore and offshore, and fishermen are quickly booking excursions.
