January

Things don’t need time to heat up here. Wahoo, Sailfish, and Mahi are available offshore. The wind might be strong, but if you’re patient enough, a late start can yield the prize. Black, Blue, and Striped Marlin can be found.

February

The big game is still on. Black or Blue, Marlin are the headline of the month, followed by Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, and Sailfish.

March

Great times for deep sea lovers. The big game season is still on, and you can troll for Mahi, Sailfish, Blue and Black Marlin, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and Bonito.

April

You can go bottom fishing for small species inshore, or head out to try and land a Yellowfin Tuna. Further out, Bonito and Mahi are on the chew.

May

First go troll for Couta using live bait. The deep seas may not provide the desired result on your date, but mostly Yellowfin Tuna will give in to trolling.

June

With some luck, you will be seeing yellow fins of a Tuna on an average day. Things aren’t always a bag of goodies when you fish in June.

July

The temperature drops and the fishing can be a bit slow around the harbor. You can get Gerrick, Couta, and may come across Stingray. Freshwaters and estuaries are solid.

August

It can get really cold, so layers of clothes might be a good idea. Still, you can catch Mackerel, or go bottom fishing for a variety of Bream. Whales swimming by are a common sight.

September

The temperature is picking up. There might be rains, and it takes some time for the waters to clear up. But that won’t prevent Bonitos from coming after your lure.

October

This is not the safest bet for game fish, but you might get a Tuna further out. Garrick are also an option if you’re into it.

November

Dorado are jumping around, so get your trolling gear ready. Bonito make for a decent catch, just watch out so a Shark doesn’t snatch them away.

December

Mahi are to be found offshore, and the big game is out there, picking up before entering the sport fishing stage in January. You might find Striped Marlin.
