September 10, 2009 – Tarpon fishing Costa Rica


Costa Rica is famous for it’s sailfish but we also have some of the best tarpon fishing in the world.

September and October are 2 of the best fishing and weather months on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica.  While the rest of Costa Rica suffers from heavy rain and scattered fishing the Caribbean side enjoys nice weather, calm seas and the best tarpon fishing in Costa Rica.

I just got a call from my tarpon captain and they have already released 10 tarpon today.

10 tarpon in one day is about as good as it gets down here.  Tarpon have very hard mouths and fight like crazy once hooked.  If you are lucky you get 25% of the fish you hook to the boat.

Now I am trying to figure out how I can get a couple days off and get over there while the gettin is good.
