Happy 4th of July from Costa Rica!

The fishing the past week out of the Los Suenos marina has been up and down. The red tide is gone and the charter boats are fishing 20-30 miles out and catching a few eating fish and maybe a few sailfish. Most of the boats offshore have been chasing yellowfin tuna and the bottom fishing at local rocks has also been steady.

Captain Brandon on the Fish Whistle caught 6 yellowfin out at the corner earlier this week. the tuna ranged from 40-80 pounds…got sushi?

Captain RJ on the Predator has been fishing the 26 rock and catching a few wahoo, tuna, snapper and more. RJ said the water today was a beautiful cobalt blue. At one point the snapper on the rock started to feed and came up to the surface and made the water boil. A few days ago RJ had a monster wahoo hit a bait and fly 8 feet in the air…the fish was well over 100 pounds.

Captain Dave on the Missbehavin fished the rock and caught one of everything it seems. They caught sailfish, dorado, wahoo, tuna, 2 types of grouper, 2 types of snapper and some other fish I can’t remember.

Captain Jeremy on the R&J had a tough day this week. He took a family out and they raised 4 sailfish and had several nice tuna bites but didn’t get anything to the boat. The highlight of the day was fishing near thousands of dolphins out by the corner…the kids loved it.

Dick Belding caught his first roosterfish aboard the R&J the rooster oddly hit while trolling in dorado country.
