Get your fishing in as soon as you can! The rainy season is rapidly approaching in Los Suenos and Jaco. However, we are not dealing with an overwhelming amount of rain just yet.
The rest of March should be warm and dry, which makes for some prime fishing conditions. When you are ready to book a fishing charter to remember, look no further than our mid-March excursions at Adventure Tours Costa Rica.
Mid-March is when the heat really kicks in across Costa Rica. Average temperatures will be greater than 90°F and rarely fall lower than 85°F. Since the water is warmer, the fish will be more prone to both inshore and offshore locations.
We also expect the cloud cover to increase gradually, and the amount of precipitation will begin as we reach the end of March. So scheduling your fishing charter now is ideal if you want to avoid having to wait out the end of the rainy season.
The water temperature will continue to stay at around 85°F, and with moderate wind speeds, you can expect the fish to continue biting throughout the rest of the month.
Whether you prefer to get your fishing in offshore or tend to fish inshore locations more often, here are some of the top fish you can expect to catch as we head into the second half of March:
Offshore fishing in Jaco and along the Central Pacific Coast in March is one of the most exciting times of year for an excursion. Not only will you find massive marlin, as the end of March is the last peak of the season, but you can also expect to find more sailfish activity.
These fish are some of the biggest catches and are sure to give you a run for your money when reeling them in. You could expect other types of offshore catches, including tasty dorado and mahi-mahi, wahoo, and billfish.
If you tend to stick to inshore fishing, make sure you look for the eye-catching and beautiful roosterfish. These fish are just about out of season, but they are by no means a rare site this month. Roosterfish are also going to put up an incredible fight when you hook them.
You could expect to reel in a 200+ pound tarpon as well, which are drawn to the warm and shallow waters of Los Suenos. In fact, it is not unusual for fishermen to reel in between five and seven tarpon or roosterfish per excursion.
Make sure you schedule your fishing excursion while the weather is agreeable and the fish are still biting. The rainy season is quickly approaching. Adventure Tours Costa Rica is here to give you the charter experience you have been dreaming of.
Mid-March is one of the best times for fishing on the Central Pacific Coast. Do not let this opportunity pass you by. Book your fishing excursion today and reel in some of the most highly sought-after bites while you can.
