How time flies.

I can’t believe it’s almost July already and my friends and I are talking about 4th of July picnics and where we can get fireworks in Costa Rica.

The weather the past few weeks has been decent.  We have had a few daytime showers but for the most part it has only been raining in the evening.  the days have been mostly sunny and 85 degrees with a light breeze.

Things continue to be a little slow around the charter dock.  There have only been a handful of boats going out each day…some going offshore but most seem to be fishing inshore and down at the 26 rock.

The small dorado are starting to show up in good numbers and these are fun because you usually can catch  20 or 30 in a couple hours.  Ultra Light tackle, fly rods and hand lines are the best way to fish for these.  Most of these mahi mahi have been 10 pounds but a few guys reported some bigger fish to 20 pounds.

The sailfish and marlin bite has been scattered but most boats are still getting 2-4 fish on a full day offshore.

There have been a couple reports of yellowfin tuna but we are still waiting on the big schools to move in and there have been some wahoo caught at the 26 rock.

The roosterfish seem to have been the main target the past few weeks and almost everyone is getting 2-4 roosterfish on a half day trip.  One lucky guy on the 36′ Topaz caught a 75 plus pound roosterfish over by Negritas.
