Quepos Costa Rica Fishing Sailfish Quepos Costa Rica Fishing Dorado

Just amazing fishing lately! I don't ever remember an August like this one. On the billfish side, John W has been averaging 3 or 4 sailfish AND and at least one Marlin hookup per trip. Today they spent more time looking for food fish and still managed to release 3 sails out of 5 hookups, and then had a really nice dorado, 11 Wahoo and around 20 YF Tuna. Crazy good Quepos offshore fishing lately, flat oceans, great Quepos Fishing Trips!

John W has been doing incredible lately! His three day sailfish total is 34 releases, and this is the "slow season"! Right before this great run of sailfish, we also saw quite a few nice marlin, and it's amazing how many billfish are out there! Alex also did a half day offshore yesterday and running to the bite and only having two hours to fish before running home still boated 4 sailfish. Been some amazing fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

June has been a great month out here for the fishing! The big story is the snapper we've been seeing. We are used to seeing almost all roosterfish, but Johnny has really been mixing it up this month, and we've probably landed about as many nice snapper and grouper as we have roosterfish. And then there were a couple of days when we really laid into the snook. Unlike typical June fishing, there have been nice schools of sardines up and down the coast. Night Bait for lookdowns has been really good as well, but when we get to use both lookdowns and sardines, the fish seem to like the variety!

One day this week, Johnny found a school of sardines loaded with tons of Snook chasing them. This was the result:

Quepos Grouper fish Fishing

We got a call a couple days back around 2:30PM from a frustrated customer who had fished 8 days with other inshore companies in Costa Rica, but had still never landed a Roosterfish. He had talked with some of our customers from that week who landed 9 roosterfish with us, so he was upset because he was leaving the next day and wouldn't have time to fish with us. Even though it was 2:30 PM and we had no bait, I called Johnny up and we got all setup and left the dock about 45 minutes later. And we landed the customer his first roosterfish, and got this great night shot!

Thank you so much for accommodating us at the last minute. Captain Johnny, is an absolute professional and was committed to my goal of catching a rooster fish. Previously, I'd spent 8 days on the water searching for by first respectable rooster and this was the first I've landed. Johnny resisted to give up and ended up getting me on one in the pitch dark at the marina before we got to the dock.

I will absolutely be back to fish with Johnny soon!

Here is some awesome drone footage of the Stress Reeliever 2 running the coast in front of Quepos! The hull on the Stress Reeliever 2 was designed to make little wake at slow speeds so the fish can see the lures better, this video shows how clean the water behind the Stress Reeliever 2 is! Check out our latest video we took showing our radar finding birds:


Black Marlin Quepos Costa Rica

Starting to see some big Marlin, and hopefully this year will be as good as last year. Last year we had tons of nice marlin from August to October, and we also saw lots of sailfish and Dorado. There is also a reef on the way out that has really heated up and we should have the chance on most offshore trips to nail the snapper, grouper and tilefish. Lots of action and plenty of food fish every trip! Inshore, we are also seeing more snapper and I think that should be consistent. Roosterfish are going to be bigger during these months, it will take a little more work to find them, but I don't think we will have any full day trips where we don't get into at least a few. Weather should be good during the day, some good rain at night, and usually the ocean is flat out here. Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Costa Rica Fishing

Costa Rica is one of the premier places in the world not only to fish but to vacation. Boasting Several different climate types from cloud forests, volcanoes, and many tropical beaches, there is something for everyone here. On the Pacific side, there are an abundance of Marlin and Sailfish. On the Atlantic side there are tons of Tarpon. We are located and focus on the Marlin Sportfishing on the Pacific side of the country.

Quepos Fishing

Quepos is one of the premier fishing spots in Costa Rica. Located in the dead center of the Pacific coast, it gives us access to fish various fishing grounds, including the same fishing grounds fished by Los Suenos and Dominical. Also protected by two large peninsulas, The water in front of Quepos is also the calmest water in Costa Rica, with wave heights rarely measuring over 3 feet. Great for first time fisherman, or fisherman who don't like to go home with bruises:)

Quepos Sportfishing / Charter Boats

Quepos has a pretty nice charter fleet. There are about 35 charter boats that are fishing in Quepos, about half of those are well maintained with good captains. If you are looking for a smaller or bigger boat, I am friends with almost everybody here and I can give you my discounted "agency" price on any charter boat fishing in Quepos. That price is usually similar to the price I offer the public on personal charter boat (for a simliar sized boat).

Manuel Antonio Hotels

Quepos is the town that is located next to Manuel Antonio park and beaches, which are the most sought after beaches in Cosat Rica. Low currents, clear water, great fishing, and cliff dwelling-ocean view hotels make this an unforgettable place to stay. Hotel prices are on par or lower than most average American hotels, but with a much nicer views!

Costa Rica Sportfishing

Costa Rica doesn't have fishing seasons and limits like the US, but that doesn't mean we can kill everything we hook. We release all billfish unless they come in dead (1 per year), that includes releasing both sailfish and Marlin.We are allowed to keep other gamefish though, and finding either a Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Amberjack or Snapper for dinner is almost always a possibility.

About Quepos Fishing Adventures

John S owns all four of our boats, so you are communicating directly with the owner of the company, not someone upselling a friends boat to make a quick buck. Even if you don't book here, always book directly with the boat owner to get the best prices.
