Fishing Report

2007 has been an incredible year for Marlin fishing out of the Los Suenos Marina and November of 2007 will go down as one of the best month ever for Marlin.

The guys on the “Gringo Honeymoon” fished out past the craters and went 4 for 10 on Marlin…boating 2 blues and 2 blacks; one fish was over 400 pounds. That same day in that same place Captain Tom on the “Agwe” went 4 for 10 on Marlin…boating 4 nice blues.

Captain Dana on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” caught big Marlin on back to back days out by Cabo Blanco…ending the month with more than a half of dozen Marlin.

Captain Dave on the “Mimi” caught a couple Blue Marlin in November. He said one day the Dorado were so thick he couldn’t even put his ballyhoo in the water without getting bit. You know the Marlin fishing is good when 40 pound Dorado are considered a nuisance.

Marlin were the main focus in November. A few other boats reported Sailfish, Wahoo, Rooster and Tuna in average numbers.

December Fish Forecast -

December is traditionally the beginning of the peak Sailfish season. As the weather improves and the water clears the Sailfish, Tuna and Dorado numbers will increase and the bite will move in closer to shore.

The Marlin fishing will continue to be above average in December and has been getting more attention recently than the Sailfish.

The inshore fishing will be above average as December is a transition month and the bait moves in and out of the rocks, river mouths and estuaries.

December Fish of the Month – Sailfish (Pez Vela)

Although the Marlin bite has been above average the Sailfish is still the king in the Pacific waters of Costa Rica. December is considered the beginning of peak Sailfish season. When the bite gets hot boats raise 10-40 Sailfish a day generally 20 to 30 miles out.

Please catch and release all billfish quickly.

World Record:
141 lbs. 1 ounce Luanda, Angola (Atlantic)
221 lbs. Santa Cruz, Ecuador (Pacific)

Good luck and good fishing.
