LETâ€™S START NORTH AND WORK OUR WAY SOUTH.
Capt. Lee in Tamarindo says that water temp has been in the low 80â€™s, and the Marlin bite has been pretty consistent for the past week or so. Several boats report raising and releasing multiple billfish per trip. Blue and Striped marlin have provide the majority of the action along with Sailfish and a very scattered Dorado bite. Sea states have been variable; some days are slick calm, other days we run South to find calmer waters. All in all, the fishing is very consistent!
Petra in Tamarindo letâ€™s us know that Salsa has had action with grouper and roosterfish, and thee Talking Fish caught a nice wahoo and a dorado on a half day.
Fishing out of the Los Suenos Marina yesterday a 10 year old boy who weighs 60 pounds caught a 59 pound snapper, it was caught at 26â€™s. Thanks Laura.
Letâ€™s go about as far south as you can go, in Golfito, some friends living in La Cuesta spent a day offshore/inshore last Sunday, and had a more than memorable day. One guy went and bought an outdoor grill after the trip ! They were approx. only 6 miles off Punta Banco( Pavones), and they trolled rapalas and a few plastics that were slammed repeatedly by dorado, big ones, and then they got into a few birds, and the yellow fin tuna , up to 50 lbs., could not be kept off the lines. Alonzo Paniagua, local expert mechanic, said it was one of the best times he’s had in a boat. His wife was in the house when he said it. The boys then went back inside, as they had a lot of fish that needed attention, but stopped at a spot where there were a few rocks. There they caught 3 respectable snappers with their 5 live sardinas, and it was time to head in and purchase extra large Zip-Lock freezer bags.
Thanks and Tight Lines!!!
An invitation for ALL!
