Fishing in Costa Rica

Costa Rica’s angling scene is something that needs to be experienced to be believed. The country’s glassy blue waters are home to over 200 different IGFA records, with 22 for Billfish alone. The tropical rainforests inland give way to stunning beaches, which look out onto some truly productive hunting grounds. Hop aboard a Costa Rica fishing charter, and you could explore them all!
 
Some of the most sought-after inshore creatures live close to land in Costa Rica. On the Pacific coast, you’ll find Snook, Jacks, and the exotic Roosterfish, with Tarpon available in the Caribbean. Hit the reefs and a who’s who of dazzling fish awaits! On both sides of the country, you can go after Groupers and Snappers, with Barracuda and Mackerel available in the east.
 
However, the real prizes come offshore. Billfish is the name of the game for any serious angler in Costa Rica. While Blue Marlin can be caught on either side, the Pacific is where you’ll find Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin – along with Sailfish! Come and test your strength against these beasts, and you may even land yourself a tasty Tuna, Mahi Mahi, or Wahoo too. 
 
Inshore and reef fishing trips can last as little as four hours, giving beginners a great introduction to fishing. More experienced anglers can spend a full day on the water, and that’s required for offshore trips, where you can even spend multiple days at sea! Costa Rica fishing charters that suit all ages and abilities are available along both coasts, with Los Sueños, Jacó, and Quepos popular on the Pacific, and Limón on the Caribbean side.

 

Reglas & Regulaciones

Every angler on a Costa Rica fishing charter will need a valid fishing license, and you can get yours online from INCOPESCA. Other than that, the only important rule you should know is that all Billfish and Roosterfish must be released.

Costa Rica Temporadas de Pesca

Enero

This is a great time to target Sailfish in the south of Costa Rica. Up north, rough seas and high winds can make getting offshore difficult. There are plenty of Snook and Roosterfish around, though.

Febrero

Comb the river mouths for monster Snook and Roosterfish. Offshore, calm seas and low rainfall make for amazing angling in the south, where double-digit Billfish releases are commonplace.

Marzo

March is a great time for loads of big game species. Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi: they’re all waiting offshore. You may need a long run to reach the best spots in the north, though.

Abril

The Offshore World Championships kick off in Quepos, with teams competing from around the world in what has come to be known as “The Superbowl of Sportfishing”. Book early to get your spot!

Mayo

May is a month of change in Costa Rica. The wind drops off in the north, meaning much better Billfishing. In the East, this is a great time to try the amazing Tarpon fishing Costa Rica has to offer.

Junio

High humidity can sap your strength this time of year, making big game battles even tougher. That just means every catch is even more rewarding, though! Snook and Roosterfish are on fire inshore.

Julio

Launch out of Tamarindo or Playa Flamingo, and you could land Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin all in one day. That’s if the Sailfish don’t eat all your bait, as they’re around in force in July.

Agosto

If you somehow get bored of double-digit Sailfish hookups and record-breaking Snook, head to the local reefs to battle monster bottom fish. Cubera Snapper are as fierce as any sportfish!

Septiembre

Temperatures can hit 90 during the middle of the day, and heavy rains can kill the offshore bite. Fish inshore for Jacks, Roosterfish, and Snook instead, or hit the reefs for Snapper and Grouper.

Octubre

This is the wettest month of the year. Some captains take their own vacation in October, as the offshore bite is far from its best. It’s still miles better than most places are in their prime, though.

Noviembre

The rains ease off and both coasts enjoys consistently good fishing in November. Spend the day battling Marlin and Sailfish, and catch some tasty Tuna for dinner. It sure beats turkey!

Diciembre

If the thought of a white Christmas gets you down, head to Costa Rica’s beautiful coast to enjoy sunny skies, warm weather, and awesome angling. Nothing kick-starts seasonal cheer like epic Billfishing!

The strong wind made fishing tough, and eventually we had to cut our day short, the Captain said that was an anomaly for this time of year. But we all know that is fishing, a word to the wise check your weather ahead of booking. This crew was awesome and made the trip in bad weather worth it.

Ask questions about the condition of the boat. I assumed that the A/C would be working to help cool our group. The boat we went on the fishing trip was a bit outdated and the AC wasn't working. It was a very hot and humid day on March 13. Make sure to eat something before the trip or take snacks. People that aren't used to the culture might not always enjoy what the boat has to offer for snacks/meals.

Great communication from the team from the get go including a date change. Everything was easy including captain and deckhand, they were super fast at rigging set ups. We caught heaps of tuna, mahi and grouper. The dolphins are amazing to see especially when they come so close to the boat! I highly recommend capullo, I would be out again tomorrow if I could be!

We had a great time on our trip! We knew the fishing was slow because of a storm the previous days, and the crew was very honest with us about that. Still, we ended up catching three yellowfish tuna. The crew was very nice. Milton and Mario really know what they're doing. Our fish were fileted for us on the boat, and we had some really good sandwiches from the crew. We saw hundreds of dolphins as well! Overall a great day.

Captain Ricardo and first mate Christian are excellent! Ricardo is a good coach and is patient. He knew i wanted to check the Rooster Fish box and set out immediately to pursue the fish i wanted most. I went 2 for 4 on the Roosters. He did not waste time in any spot which was unproductive for more than 20-30 minutes and found the fish. A great day, 2 Roosters, 1 large Jack, and 2 Black Tips. We dropped at least 3 big Spanish Mackerel.

We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cheaper fishing charter option in tamarindo - we were looking and this was one of the best priced guides for this location. And it was sooooo worth the price. We caught a 150 pound nursing shark and fought it for an hour and a half. We also got 1 tuna for dinner! We got the 4 hour trip

Taxi boat on the beach promptly at 6am, ran I think 8-10mi out and started fishing. They just had us on the fish constantly. 7 line spread. Nice abundant amount of teasers. From the tower spotting the pods of dolphins and putting us on Yellowfin all-day. Overall just a really great group to fish with. Plenty of laughing and smiles all around. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed this trip. Jose and his helper worked very well together to make sure we had a great trip. A couple of Jose's friends were out in other boats and they didn't catch anything. I'm glad we were with Jose so my husband could reel in his sail fish.

The boat and gear was excellent. The crew was on their game, helping efficiently all the time. The bait was good, the lures were appropriate, and the spread behind the boat was perfect. We were able to catch. A big wahoo and a very big sail fish (released the sailfish), in tough windy conditions. It was a great day.

We had a few other hookups (including a marlin) but didn’t get them in If I’m ever in the area again, I’m booking Luis and his mates!
