Jaco Beach, Hermosa Beach, Quepos &
Manuel Antonio Sportsfishing

Los Sueños Marina near Jaco Beach and the Quepos - Manuel Antonio area are the hot spots for Sport Fishing on the Central Pacific coast. Sailfish are the main targets for most anglers and they are seldom disappointed. Offshore fishing is normally done 12-20 miles out in blue water. Once in the blue water anglers catch Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna, Dorado and Wahoo. Inshore fishing is done around rocks, reefs, river mouths and estuaries. Anglers catch Roosterfish, Snapper, Jacks, Mackerel, Snook and more.

We are located in Jaco Beach on the Central Pacific Coast. The majority of our charter boats and vacation rentals are located in the Los Suenos Resort, Jaco Beach, Hermosa Beach, Quepos & Manuel Antonio areas.

 

Give us a call or send us an e-mail if you have any questions about charter boats and vacation rentals or if you need a “live” fishing report.

Thanks for your time,

Jerry “bubba” Hallstrom

Fishing Species and Seasons


The Sailfish bite is above average year round. When the fishing is good, boats can average 20-40 Sailfish a day. When the fishing is slow, boats can average 5-10 fish per day. The best months are normally December through April, but Sailfish are caught all year round. more..


September, October and November are normally the best months for Marlin. But, big Blue Marlin and Black Marlin are always around and the boats that target them usually have some success. You may need to go a little farther and fish a little harder, but Marlin fishermen are used to that. more...



Yellowfin Tuna are found throughout the year on the Pacific coast. It’s not uncommon to pick up a 100 plus pound Yellowfin when fishing for Sailfish. June through September are normally the best months for Big Tuna. My best Tuna day we caught 20 Yellowfin Tuna. One weighed 20 pounds, one weighed 200 pounds and all the rest were about 100 pounds each. more...

The Dorado fishing is above average year round. June, July, August and September are the best months for the 5-15 pounders that congregate on the
weed and trash lines closer inshore. The rest of the year, the bigger Dorado are further offshore in the blue water with the bait and the Sailfish, 30 to 50 pound Dorado are very common when fishing for Sailfish.more...

Wahoo can be a pleasant surprise anytime of the year. Not many fisherman target the Wahoo, they are usually caught while fishing for something else. There are a few offshore rocks around Quepos that consistently hold big Wahoo all year long. more...


These hard hitting fish are one of my favorite. The Roosterfish and Jack bite is good year round with June through September normally being the best months. Fish live bait along the reefs and river mouths or cast poppers on the rocks and hold on because they hit like a freight train. Jaco and Quepos have excellent fishing for Roosterfish and Jack. more...


There are several different species of Snapper on the Pacific Coast. The Snapper bite is good year round. Cubera Snappers in the 50 to 80 pound range are not uncommon. Fish the rocks, reefs and rivers mouths with live bait or poppers. The Snapper fishing is good along the entire Pacific Coast. more...

Snook are usually caught trolling or casting near the many river mouths that run into the Pacific Ocean. The IGFA World Record Pacific Black Snook was caught just south of Quepos. There are a lot of 20 to 40 pound Snook caught every year. The locals have known about these big Snook for years, now a few of the smaller charter boats are targeting them. The best months are normally July through November, but some of the biggest fish are caught in December. more...
