May 20, 2010 – marlin, sailfish and tuna oh my

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

Not many boats going out of Los Suenos marina the past week but the ones that do are having some luck with marlin, sailfish and tuna.

Most of the talk the last couple days was about the decent marlin bite that is 35 or so miles offshore.

One of the 55′ released 3 marlin last week and added a few sailfish each day as well.

The 32′ Irwin Forbes got into the tuna yesterday and boated 10 to 12 all over 40 pounds.

A couple guys up in the Tamarindo area are reporting some good marlin numbers.  I heard rumors of one boat raising 6 little blues on a recent trip offshore.

One of my buddies is moving back to the states for several months so he is trying to get in as much fishing as possible before he leaves.  He is fishing on our boat the next couple days in hopes of a marlin.

May 15, 2010 – Los Suenos fishing

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

The first reports I received tonight were pretty good for fishing out of Los Suenos…good bite just 18 ish miles offshore.

The 60′ Bertram went 5 for 7 on sail, caught a couple mahi mahi and had a wahoo bite off a bait.  They caught 4 sails by noon but then only 1 after noon.  The people had paid for the 33′ Proline and got bumped up to the 60″ Bertram with direct tv, leather couches and ice cold ac….lucky.  Owner says good deal available all green season.

The 36′ Topaz had at least 10 sailfish bites last I heard on the radio.

My buddies got a late start on our boat but still had 4 sailfish bites…a wahoo also tried to wreck two of our best teaser/lures…lumo and evil angel.

May 14, 2010 – Los Suenos marlin rumors

Saturday, May 15th, 2010


I can’t believe it’s already the middle of May.

The weather remains steady on the Pacific coast with sunny days, light winds and some evening showers.  The charter dock is still pretty slow but the fishing is not bad.

One of the 32′ on the charter dock went for a half day yesterday and released 3 sails, kept a mahi and saw a marlin.

The 28′ center console did a 3/4 day trip went 2 for 4 on sailfish and caught 3 mahi.  They also saw a marlin while fishing out 25 miles by the corner.

There have been more marlin around than usual and that gets all the captains fired up.  Almost every captain would trade 25 sailfish for 1 marlin.  Marlin are the king and it seems like right now that 50% of the boats that go offshore are getting a shot at one.

We have a handful of boats going out in the morning so hopefully the fish cooperate and everyone has a good day.

May 11, 2010 – sails and marlin still around

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010


Not much traffic around the charter docks at Los Suenos so just a few boats going out every day.  The weather has been nice, sunny and 85 during the day with a few evening showers here and there.

One of the 42’s went offshore today and went 6 for 7 on sailfish and missed 2 marlin.  The captain told me they were about 30 miles out and the seas were calm.  A few days ago these guys went 1 for 6 on sailfish and 1 for 2 on marlin.  They caught a 250 pound blue marlin.

The same day the 42′ caught their marlin my buddies were out on our boat.  They got out there late and missed a sail, missed a marlin and caught a mahi mahi.

A couple guys went inshore fishing down by Quepos on a 28′ center console and they caught 5 roosterfish on a half day trip.  Once we start getting some rain we start seeing more roosterfish.

May 7, 2010 – sailfish and mahi mahi

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

A couple guys went offshore yesterday for  half day on the 28′ center console and went 2 for 3 on sailfish and caught a couple big mahi mahi…they were out by the craters.

May 6, 2010 – sailfish and some tuna

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Sorry for the lack of info this week but there have not been many tourist in town and it’s been pretty slow around the charter dock.  May is a lazy month around here and everyone has been lazy about fish reports.

The guys I have talked to have been doing good offshore… catching anywhere from 3 to 6 sailfish each day and some boats get a tuna or two and a couple boat caught a mahi mahi or two.  There were also a few marlins sightings but I didn’t talk to anyone that could verify anything 100%.

The inshore has not really started up yet…some guys went out a half day yesterday to a spot across the bay called Negritas and fought a nice roosterfish and a nice snapper but both fish broke off.

The weather has been nice with sunny days in the mid 80’s, light breezes and some evening showers to cool things off and keep the dust down.

April 30, 2010 – a good mix of fish

Saturday, May 1st, 2010


It’s been a little slow around the charter dock at Los Suenos the past few days.  There have been a handful of boats going out each day and they have been catching a good mix of fish.

One of the 42’s released 6 sailfish, kept one wahoo and 3 nice yellowfin tuna the last time out.

One of the other 42′ released 9 sails yesterday.

The 36′ Topaz had 9 sailfish bites a couple days ago and ended with 6 releases.

The 38′ Custom released 7 sailfish yesterday with the clients hooking their own fish.

The 26′ Regulator today released a sailfish and a blue marlin on a 3/4 day trip.  They also caught a nice dorado for the grill.

So far green season seems to be right on time.  Our days have been mostly sunny and really nice and we have been getting some evening showers that last an hour or two. It’s a nice break from the 90 degrees and blazing sun everyday.
