Both inshore and offshore, anglers can expect generally warm and humid conditions, with temperatures comfortably hovering in the upper-to-mid 80s°F.

Offshore Bites 🎣

Fishing offshore in Los Suenos during early July offers an exhilarating experience, especially for those targeting mahi mahi (dorado), yellowfin tuna, and wahoo. The warm, nutrient-rich waters create a haven for these prized game fish, attracting both novice and seasoned anglers. Mahi mahi are particularly abundant, their vibrant colors and acrobatic leaps adding a spectacular visual to the thrill of the catch. These fast swimmers are often found around floating debris or weed lines, where they congregate in large numbers, making for exciting and action-packed fishing sessions. Yellowfin tuna, known for their strength and speed, are also prevalent in these waters. They can be located near schools of smaller baitfish, and catching one can turn into a prolonged and challenging battle that tests an angler's endurance and skill. Wahoo, with their razor-sharp teeth and incredible bursts of speed, add an element of surprise and excitement to the mix. These solitary hunters are often caught by trolling at higher speeds, and their powerful strikes and swift runs make them a coveted target. The diversity and abundance of these species ensure that every trip offshore from Los Suenos is filled with anticipation and the promise of unforgettable fishing adventures.

Inshore Bites 🎣

Snapper fishing Los Suenos Costa Rica

Fishing for red snapper inshore in Los Suenos is a captivating experience that blends the allure of scenic coastal waters with the thrill of angling for one of the region’s most prized catches. Red snapper, known for their striking coloration and robust fighting spirit, are abundant in these warm, shallow waters, making them a favorite among local and visiting anglers.

The prime spots for red snapper fishing are typically around rocky outcrops and underwater structures where these fish find shelter and abundant food. We target these known areas while hunting snapper to maximize our chances of a successful catch. The technique used to catch red snapper can vary, but bottom fishing is the most common method. This involves dropping baited hooks to the seabed, where red snapper are known to feed. Live bait is particularly effective, though cut bait and artificial lures can also yield good results.

One of the joys of red snapper fishing out of Los Suenos Marina is the relatively shallow depth at which these fish are found, typically ranging from 30 to 200 feet. This makes it accessible to a wide range of anglers, from beginners to seasoned pros. Light to medium tackle is generally sufficient, and the fight these fish put up provides plenty of excitement without requiring the heavy gear often associated with offshore fishing. Red snapper are known for their powerful, head-shaking runs, making each catch a memorable battle.
