October 5, 2010 – tarpon and snook fishing in Costa Rica


The Pacific side of Costa Rica seems to be recovering from a week of crappy weather…it’s raining less and we are seeing more sun…at least where I am.

The reports from the Caribbean side have been really good..the weather has been steady, the ocean has been calm and there are lots of tarpon around.  It seems like anglers are averaging 5 or 6 tarpon per day from the reports I received.

The pic above was sent by a guy that does some kayak fishing charters in Guanacaste.  He went over to the Caribbean side and has been shore fishing with light tackle and jigs for a few weeks. He’s been catching snook, jack and a few 80 pound tarpon from shore.
