I don't remember fishing ever being this busy and diverse here. There has been a school of Yellowfin Tuna just making laps out in front of Quepos for the last few years it seems, they probably bite 5 days a week, but they are there everyday. And they have been growing up! I remember a year back a 100 pounder were the very biggest, now we are seeing 100 pounders several times a week and the big ones are way over 200. And then with the Yellowfin Tuna making laps out there, the Sailfish, Marlin and Dorado circle the Tuna. Everyday out there has had fish, and usually quite a few! Great off fishing, some of the best offshore fishing I can remember, right now in Quepos Costa Rica!
There has been a big school of Yellowfin Tuna just making circles out in front of Quepos most of last month and pretty much all of June so far (I'm writing this on the 17th of June). Around the school there have been some nice billfish, and then we are sometimes catching dorado (and a wahoo, but just a few), but the big story is the Yellowfin. I would say we have seen them from the 40 to 150 pound range, maybe a hair bigger, and somedays it's as many as you want to catch. The schools of Yellowfin Tuna are also really neat things to see, as there will be hundreds if not thousands of spinner dolphin jumping up out of the water and spinning. And then when you look down you can see the huge school of Yellowfin run under the boat, it straight out of NatGeo! Great fishing offshore, I expect to see more and more dorado as we get later in the summer and then the peak dorado season usually hits somewhere between September and November. Great fishing offshore here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Quepos Inshore Fishing Report:
I have no idea why the snook showed up in August here in Quepos, but they did! We are seeing huge roosterfish, huge snapper, and then the wrong time of year schools of Snook as well. Very diverse and good fishing so far this August here inshore in Quepos Costa Rica!
Inshore has been big roosterfish lately! A few snapper, and a few grouper, but 90 percent roosterfish! Some of them have been really big, and we are usually seeing at least one 40+ pounder on every full day trips. We have been getting good night bait lately, some nice lookdowns, and then there have been some sardines around as well to get some variety in the spread back there. Great inshore fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
