Costa Rica North Pacific
Most of the offshore action on the Pacific side has been in the northern Guanacaste region. A good number of sails and dorado are biting. Action is still good off Playas del Coco, and Richard Chellemi reports the sails are being cooperative. Marlin also are popping up here and there, so it seems northern Costa Rica is the hot spot for billfish as of late.
Costa Rica Central
On the central Pacific coast, at both Herradura and Quepos the billfish bite slowed this last week. In Quepos, boats bottom-fishing have been taking some nice snapper and grouper. Along the coast, the roosterfish, jack and sierra mackerel continue to take both live bait and trolled diving lures
Costa Rica South
Down south off the Osa Peninsula, the billfish action was slow this week and only a few boats were out on the water. A few smaller dorado and wahoo have been taken, but it seems the great tuna bite that lasted almost two weeks is over for now. The weather is improving and the dirty water inshore is clearing up, so the inshore action should pick up any day.
Costa Rica Caribean
Tarpon keep pounding both bait and jigs on the Caribbean side. Yesterday the water was as flat as a pancake and boats could drift right through the river mouth, where normally they are dancing with waves to get outside. Boats are getting up to 20 bites a day and landing four to six tarpon each. The snook action has been slow, but, with the calm waters, anglers should be able to comfortably fish the areas where they like to hang out.
