Costa Rica Fishing

Saltwater Fishing - Inshore

Central Pacific Coast

The inshore waters of the Central Pacific coast are some of the most abundant sport fisheries in the world. Literally thousands of Roosterfish populate the area and are caught year around. There can be so much action with Gallos (Roosters) that often clients prefer to target other species after hours of battling these hard fighting “brawlers”. The IGFA all tackle world record for Snook (a 58lb. Pacific Black) and the record for Pacific Backfin both came from the local waters and the limits of those records are being challenged frequently. Casting over submerged rocks and reefs can produce various Jacks and up to five different kinds of Snapper including: Colorado, Mullet, Pacific Dog, Spotted Rose and Yellow.

When the waters are warmer (December through May) and baitfish (Herring, Mullet, etc.) are found in tight schools or “baitballs” the action can be fast and furious with the predators species that patrol the perimeters. Usually the baitfish reach their mature size during the summer months from November to May and then are seen sporadically throughout the rest of the year. These predators/sport fish include: Barracuda (Pacific and Mexican), Pacific Bonito, Stripped Corvina, Jack Crevalle(Common and Pacific), Dolphinfish (aka Dorado or Mahi Mahi), Milkfish, Mackerel (Sierra and Chub), Needlefish, Black Skipjack, Trevally (Bigeye and Bluefin), Trippletail, Tuna (Yellowfin, Bigeye and Skipjack), Wahoo.
