Full moon's gone: back to solid Costa Rica fishing!

The full moon had slowed down Los Suenos fishing last week – bright moonlight means feeding at night and less action during the day. The bite has gotten significantly better, and we are back to solid Costa Rica fishing. Prior to the full moon, the best bite was about 20 miles offshore where we were raising between fifteen to twenty sails per day and getting shots at ten to fifteen. The marlins were scarce though, and we were lucky to get a shot a day at one.

Since we’re off the full moon, the bite has moved about five miles farther out from Los Suenos. The average number of sailfish we are seeing is in the five to ten range. The marlin fishing in Costa Rica has gotten more consistent, giving one to two shots a day at them.

The dorados have been in the 20 – 50-pound range, but less consistent than a few weeks ago. Wahoo has been caught around the 26 rock.

Inshore fishing has been good with rooster fish and cubbera snappers plentiful.

Generally speaking the Los Suenos fishing has been excellent and the seas have been calm with blue sunny skies making for a quick and easy run to great Costa Rica fishing.
