January 26, 2010 – Costa Rica fishing remains steady

The past couple days the fishing has remained unchanged.  The boats are working hard and grinding out 2 to 5 sailfish per day, 2 to 5 mahi mahi per day, a marlin here and there and even some yellowfin tuna showed up.  I did talk to a couple guys that found the pods and one gu released 11 sails and another released 9…they were less than 35 miles out.

The 36′ Gamefisher in Quepos caught 8 sails, 6 mahi and a marlin over the past 2 days.

The 32′ Irwin Forbes broke off a 400 plus pound marlin not far offshore…he ended the day with 4 sails and 2 mahi mahi.

The 36′ Topaz also caught 4 sails and 2 mahi mahi  and the next day caught 2 sails and 3 mahi mahi.

The guys on the 42′ Maverick have been averaging 3 or 4 sails and the same on mahi mahi…they also ran into some yelowfin today and picked up a few fat ones

The 28′ Center Console did some back to back 1/2 day trips in the bay and ended up with 4 nice mahi mahi in the 40 pound range…they were only 10 miles out.
