COUPLE'S FISHING IN QUEPOS COSTA RICA
COUPLE'S FISHING IN QUEPOS COSTA RICA
December 29, 2022
Just an epic trip yesterday for our last outing before Christmas and fantastic to have Cross & Casey from Florida join us aboard GOOD DAY. After quickly catching some Bonito livebaits to start the day, no sooner had we set them out did we have a Blue Marlin airborne but unfortunately it threw the hook on its first jump. We pushed on but the next couple of hours out to 30 miles proved to be slow & fishless. Thankfully our fortunes changed & we raised the second Marlin of the day, this time getting a solid hook set and Lady Angler Casey did amazing fighting the fish & getting it boatside in 20 minutes. A stunning Blue Marlin of around 200lb, which we tagged & released for the Gray FishTag Research program. To say the guys were delighted would be an understatement. We then found an area which provided some great Dorado action, we caught a double, then a triple as well as a couple of singles. Mostly solid fish up to 48-50”. We kept 3 for dinner and tagged & released the rest for @gray fishtag research. We then raised another Marlin, crossed got a Bonito pitch bait to it quickly but this fish was gone off the teaser as quick as it came si no luck on that one unfortunately. Catch Report 1 for 2 Blue Marlin est. 200lb (109”) & raised 3 total 7 Dorados 0 for 1 Sailfish Just an epic day on the water and so nice to have passionate Anglers Cross & Casey with us. So that left us 3 for 6 on Blue Marlin on the last 2 days, Merry Christmas! ???

Understand it is into the rainy season, so the weather and waves can be rough. Still big fish to be caught.

Remember that it's called "fishing" and not "catching" for a reason. Some days the fish just aren't there. Understand which months are best for the type of fish you're hoping to catch. If you've got specific questions, contact the respective charter contact for details. All of them seemed very willing to assist and answer any questions.

Get some inshore Roosters/Snappers & Jacks early, then try everything on offer - you can bottom fish species hunting inshore (and off-shore), or go after off-shore Bill-fish where the whole spectrum of lure taking hard fighting fish including Wahoo, Dorado, Jacks, Tuna, Amberjack and Rainbow Runners are present for most of the year.

Do this trip with an open mind - enjoy the full experience without focusing completely on the catch you personally want. Jackpot's commitment to conservation- keeping the game fish catch in the water - quick and safe release is commendable.

100% recommended, the sportfishing in Costa Rica is excellent, all year you can to catch sailfish, mahi mahi or tunas. Also the inshore fishing is very good for roosterfish, mackarele and red snapper. Is better that you write by e-mail to Martin, the operation manager, he is like a friend in Costa Rica.
