Marlin (Blue) Fishing in Costa Rica

The warm waters and productive reef areas of Costa Rica make excellent conditions for billfish. While Blue Marlin can be found all along the coast, you can note their migration patterns by season, with August to December seeing many Blue Marlin in the south, Jaco and Quepos experiencing high season from September to December and the northern areas of Playa Flamingo and Tamarindo most frequented by Blue Marlin from November to March.

Some of the most famous Blue Marlin fisheries include the Los Suenos marina, Golfito and Drake's Bay. Frequented also by Black Marlin and Striped Marlin, going out of Los Suenos makes it possible to achieve a billfish 'Grand Slam'.

What People Are Saying About Marlin (Blue) Fishing in Costa Rica

"Best day of fishing ever !!!! "

Thomas Bishop fished with Talking Fish - 38’ Topaz Express on December 29, 2018

Awesome trip with my boys . We did a half day and got hooked up on grouper . We then trolled and got a blue marlin(my first ever) and mahi mahi. Catching a blue marlin on a 1.2 day trip isn’t normal! One of the best days of fishing ever. Quote of the day by Captain Randy when we hooked the marlin “ dom’t Let the pole go in the water “ ? Captain Randy is the best ! Highly reccomended!

"Full day."

Bill Young fished with Talking Fish - 38’ Topaz Express on November 28, 2018

Had us on the Marlin with in the 1sts two hours of fishing. Landed a 6’ 220 pounder. Caught and released. Then came the Yellow Tuna. Then the Grouper , Red fish , Mackerel and finished with a Dorado. Sorry I forgot the jack fish and Red snapper. Best day of Ocean fishing ever. Back to the snow tomorrow.

"Full day off-shore"

Adam Gaydosh fished with Fish On Sportfishing on November 26, 2018

I went out on my 40th birthday and told them I wanted to catch my first marlin (after 2 days of good action in Quepos on mahi and sails but no mariln), Capt. said no problem, and made it happen! Crew was great, friendly, fun, and professional, they kept switching up the teasers and bait until we got one to the boat! Also 2 nice Mahi, great day, very nice boat for a great price, loved it!
