March Fishing Report

You can now get daily fishing reports at my new website
www.CostaRicaFishingReport.com

The fishing in March was incredible. The month started with a solid Sailfish bite 15-20 miles out in front of Jaco. All the boats were catching 7-10 Sailfish and lots of delicious Dorado.

From March 13-15th was the Los Suenos Signature Billfish Tournament. Congrats to the guys on the “Muy Caliente” for taking first place with 4 Marlin and 23 Sailfish in the 3 day event…pretty good for a 31 foot boat in a tournament with lots of big boats. The “Spanish Fly” was 2nd place and the big “Missbehavin” finished third.

The Sailfish bite exploded following the full moon with everyone catching double digit Sailfish just 20 – 30 miles out. The Dorado bite dropped off a bit but when your catching 12 -28 Sailfish a day who cares.

The month ended with a big Marlin bite. It seemed like everyone I talked to raised Marlin and several boats had multiple hook ups and multiple Marlin releases just 20- 30 miles out. Boats were averaging 3 to 5 Sailfish, a Mahi Mahi or two and a Blue, Black or Striped Marlin sighting.

Captain Bill on the “Sailfish” caught 10 Sailfish and a 450 pound Blue Marlin on St Patty’s Day. Captain Bill later went 12 for 20 on Sails one day and 22 for 33 the next. He finished the month with 4 Sails and a 500 pound Black down by the pocket.

Captain Dana on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” went 19 for 26 on Sailfish and had a couple nice Mahi Mahi. Towards the end of the month he caught a Striped Marlin, 4 Sailfish and a 50 pound Bull Dorado with a lucky couple from Florida.

Captain Dave on the “Missbehavin” took a family from Pensacola fishing and they went 5 for 9 on Sailfish. Everyone on the boat caught their first Sailfish…congrats.

Captain Jeremy on the “R&J” released 15 Sailfish with the Mike Horn party. Mike had a great time and sends his thanks to Jeremy and the crew. Toward the end of the month Captain Jeremy on the “R&J” caught a Blue Marlin, a Striped Marlin, 2 Dorado and 2 Sailfish.

RJ fished with the guys on the “Iron Trader” and released 3 Marlin, a few Sails and a couple Dorado.

Captain Roberto recently went to secret spot and caught 2 huge Broom tail Groupers…using butterfly jigs.

Captain Tim on the “Tres Amigos” caught a couple Marlin, five Sailfish and a few Dorado.


April Fish Forecast --

Hopefully the big Sailfish numbers will continue through April. Sailfish is our most important fish and we need another great month.

The Marlin fishing will get most of the attention just because the guys caught so many Sailfish last month that they are ready for something new. The Striped Marlin bite will continue to be above average.

There will also be lots of big Dorado and Tuna caught by boats going offshore for Sailfish and Marlin.


April Fish of the Month – Sailfish

The Sailfish and Marlin bite made thousands of tourists happy in March. Those happy people will go home and tell everyone how great the fishing is in Costa Rica. Healthy Sailfish and Marlin populations are important to the future of Costa Rica. If we do not protect this resource Costa Rica will lose millions of dollars a year.

PLEASE DON’T EAT WHITE MARLIN AND SAILFISH

What’s in your ceviche?

Good Luck and Good Fishing,

Bubba

For a couple days now the Marlin bite continues to be the big story out of the Los Suenos Marina. Lots of boats reporting Striped, Black and Blue Marlin bites mixed in with a few Sails and a few Dorado. The boats are fishing between 25-35 miles out towards the Craters. It seems like the boats are averaging 3 or 4 Sails, a Dorado or two and a Marlin bite. Several boats released more than one Marlin.

Captain Tim on the “Tres Amigos” caught a Marlin, five Sailfish and a few Dorado.

The guys on the “Macushla” caught a few Sail, a few Dorado and they released 2 Striped Marlin…one about 250 pounds…and they raised a Nice Blue Marlin.

Captain Brandon on the “Fish Whistle” had some clients that wanted to bottom fish at the 26. Brandon reported green water and a slow bite at the 26…The Captain did save the day by trolling the dropoff home and picking up 5 Sailfish. The day before RJ and the guys on the “Iron Trader” fished the 26 and caught dozens of fish …they caught Silky Snapper, Cubera Snapper, Dogtooth Snapper, Roosterfish, Wahoo, various Jacks and some other fish…Sorry I quit listening.

Everyone is enjoying the Marlin bite. They enjoy it so much when you ask them for a fishing report they just want to talk about the Marlin, you can’t get any good info out of anybody…it’s just Marlin Marlin Marlin.

If catching a Marlin is on your “bucket list” then now is a good time to go. The bite is close and consistent. get out while the gettin is good.

Gracias,

Bubba

The fishing just got better out of the Los Suenos Marina. The reports of raising 40 fish were confirmed. It seems that the guys on the Desperado released 28 some Sailfish out by the craters.

The word on the street today was about the Marlin bite. Lots of boats picking up Striped and Blue Marlin less than 25 miles out. We have gone a month without a big Marlin bite…but today things changed.

Captain Jeremy on the “R&J” caught a Blue Marlin, a Striped Marlin, 2 Dorado and 2 Sailfish.

Captain Dana on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” caught a Striped Marlin, 4 Sailfish and a 50 pound Bull Dorado. His clients wanted to jump in the water at the end of the day. Dana had pull everything in but one ballyhoo. While his customers were swimming Captain Dana’s line came tight and he hooked up a big Sailfish. The couple quickly slid through the transom door like a couple of seals ad landed the fish.

Captain Bill on the “Sailfish” banged them out going 12 for 20 on Sails today and 22 for 33 yesterday. He was anxious to chase the Marlin bite tommorow.

Captain RJ fished with the guys on the “Iron Lady” and released 3 Marlin, a few Sails and a couple Dorado.

Thanks,

Bubba

The fishing out of the Los Suenos Marina continues to be great. The Sailfish bite is still the star with everyone raising double digit fish and releasing 6-16 Sailfish per day. Most of the boats are picking up a Dorado or two and several boats got into some nice Tuna action. There are rumors this morning of boats raising 40 Sailfish out by the craters…I am trying to confirm those reports.

Captain Dana on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” put together a combo trip for his clients. They went bottom fishing in the morning and caught 3 nice Snappers and a couple Roosterfish, they then decide to run offshore shore and troll and soon caught and released 4 Sailfish. The guys liked the combo trip so much they are doing it again tomorrow.

Captain David on the “Barbarrosa” took a group out recently that wanted to catch some eating fish. They went 2 for 3 on Sailfish but caught few 40 pound Mahi Mahi and a couple 40 plus pound Tuna. They will be eating good for the next few days.

Captain Brandon on the “Fish Whistle” has gone inshore and bottom fishing the past few days and reports that the inshore water is blue and the bite is good.

Captain Dave on the “Missbehavin” took Tattoo Joe out for a fun day of fishing. They didn’t go out very far and they didn’t fish very hard but they ended up releasing 6 nice Sailfish. I heard Joe was setting his own hooks…good job Joe.

Thanks for your time,

Bubba

Captain Dana on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” went 9 for 12 on Sailfish and had a couple nice Mahi Mahi.

Captain Jerry on the “Estrella del Mar” released 5 Sailfish while fishing with Jonathon’s group.

Report Description:

A month ago a guy from Atlanta sent me a email about fishing…he ended his letter like this:

Sincerely,
Greg Groover (a person who badly wants to catch a sailfish)

He wasn’t greedy, he didn’t ask for 10 Sailfish, a Marlin, some Tuna, a few Dorado, a Wahoo and a Roosterfish all on a half day trip like some people do. He was just a person that badly wants to catch a Sailfish…just one.

I’m happy to report Mr. Groover and his folks went 2 for 4 on Sailfish on a half day trip on the “Scorpion”. He called me after the trip and I could hear the excitement and happiness in his voice.

I almost forgot what it was like to catch the first Sailfish. I grew up in Nebraska where a big fish was a 10 pound Carp so when I caught my first Sailfish in Quepos in 1998 I was instantly hooked. I went home and within a year sold everything I had, left a good job and took a chance on Costa Rica.

Ten years later and there have been some good times and there have been some bad times but I’ve caught hundreds of Sailfish and I’ve help hundreds of friends and tourist catch Sailfish…I love this country and I love my job.

To say that one Sailfish in Quepos back in 1998 changed my life is a understatement. Will it have the same effect on Mr. Groover? Will he sell everything he has and move down here because Costa Rica has great fishing and beautiful women? Probably not, but I hope he at least reads this and sends me some photos of his first Sailfish and I hope he visits Costa Rica again.

Congrats Greg…and thanks for the reminder.

Click here to enlarge Report Description: The Sailfish bite is so good I think the captains and crew are starting to get bored with it. Usually if someone catches 10 sailfish I get a call and a fresh fish report…but when everyone is catching 10 fish it’s no big deal and nobody calls.

Everyone going out is catching fish…the number of fish caught ranges from 4 to 14 Sails and a Dorado or two. Not many Marlin or Tuna being caught.

Captain Dave and his group on the “Missbehavin” released 6 Sailfish and caught a nice Dorado for the grill. Dave also reported seeing one Marlin.

Click here to enlarge Report Description: The fishing report for offshore reads like a carbon copy of the past few days. The Sailfish bite is still booming 15-25 miles offshore. There’s 30-40 boats going out everyday and almost all of them are catching double digit Sailfish and a couple Dorado. The Tuna and Marlin bite seems to have slowed a little but that may because everyone is fishing on the inside. There seems to be more Marlin and Tuna caught the farther out you go.

With all the attention on the Sailfish bite in Los Suenos some folks forget that we have some incredible inshore fishing in the area. There are the well known inshore spots like the island, guapinol, conejo, punta mala and the 26 rock. We fish these spots for Roosterfish, Snapper, Grouper, Wahoo and more. Then there are the secret spots…for these you need to know the right guys with the right GPS numbers.

Captain Roberto recently went to secret spot and caught 2 huge Broom tail Groupers…using butterfly jigs.

I would have kissed her to.

Lots and lots and lots of Sailfish in the water today. Thanks to Rich the owner of the R&J for inviting me along for a great day on the water. The weather was perfect the water was perfect. We had really cold beers and some good grub. We went 20 miles out saw 50 Sailfish, raised 20 and released 10 and caught a Dorado for dinner. I was amazed at how many fish I saw in the water. Small schools of 5 and 6 Sailfish were everywhere. Thanks again Rich, Captain Jeremy and the crew of the R& J for a great day of catching.

The charter fleet was spread out from 15 to 25 miles and everyone seemed to be catching fish like we were.

Big Sailfish numbers are what we need…get em while they are hot.
