Guanacaste Fishing SeasonsMarlin:
During the season months (September, October and November are normally the best months) you will find them among 20 to 30 miles offshore. Big Blue, Black and Stripped Marlin are always around the Papagayo waters. You may need to go a little farther (30-50 miles out) and fish a little harder if you want to catch a marlin out of the season months.
When the fishing is good, each boat can raise 2 to 5 Sailfish a day. When the fishing is slow, boats can raise 1 or 2 fish per day. The best months are normally December through April, but Sailfish are caught in regular numbers all year round. Although they travel in deep water, they will usually feed in mid-depths. Two or three predator fish will keep the bait organized while the others feed from the ball.
Truly a great tasting fish and it is the one most valued in the Tuna family. The big Tunas come and go all year long but June through September are normally the best months for 200 pounders. Yellowfin feeds on fish and invertebrates associated with sargassum. This will occur in at the water's surface in the open ocean.
The Dorado fishing is above average year round. The rainy season May through October is the best time to catch the 5-15 pounders that congregate on the weed and trash lines closer inshore. Many of the foods eaten by Dolphin such as small fish, crabs, and shrimps are found in floating mats of sargassum. At times, the Dolphin is a voracious predator and other occasions it seems content merely to nibble on small crustaceans and insects that float on the surface in the weed lines.
Wahoo can be a pleasant surprise anytime of the year. Not many fisherman target Wahoo, they are usually caught while fishing for something else. More often than not, Wahoo are taken while trolling for other species, principally Tuna and Marlin.
Red Snapper (Cubera):
The Roosterfish bite is good year round. June through October is considered the best time for this hard hitting fish, however, Roosterfish from 20 to 80 pounds are caught every month. The Papagayo Gulf area has some excellent spots for big Roosterfish and hold on because they are good fighters.
There are several different species of Snapper on the Pacific Coast. The Snapper bite is good year round. Cubera Snapper in the 50 to 80 pound range are not uncommon. They are opportunistic bottom feeders that consume a variety of shrimp, crabs and small fishes. We release for tomorrow!!
