November 17, 2009 – Costa Rica fishing

There were some rumors of a good bite out around 50 miles offshore in front of Los Suneos Marina.  One boat raised almost 20 sails, one bought caught a marlin and 3 sails and another caught 3 marlin.  These are all big private boats…there are only a few charter boats that can push out to 50 miles on a regular charter.  The guys on the 32′ Irwin Forbes did go 2 for 3 on sails less than 30 miles out and they also caught a half dozen nice mahi…so there is some hope that these fish are moving in.

We all expect these fish to start moving in closer as the rains end and the water continues to clear up.

The Los Suenos Marlin tournament starts this Thursday so I am sure those boats will be going far and wide to catch the fish needed to win the big money.

There are still plenty of mahi mahi around in the 35 to 40 pound range.  1/2 day and full day trips have been catching fish.
