Current Offshore Quepos Fishing Report:

August 1 2014

Quepos Fishing Sailflish

Been some pretty good Quepos fishing offshore lately. Today John W released 3 sails, Mike was out yesterday and released 3 as well, that seems to be the typical catch offshore for the last month. That is when they don't get the big marlin, two days back, John landed a really nice Blue Marlin and got into a pod of Killer Whales! Very neat to see the killer whales out here, they aren't super common, but these whales hung out around the boat for a good half hour and let us get a ton of video as they jumped and cruised with us! It was a great break from all the reeling after the big Blue Marlin! Flat ocean today, been really nice out lately, with some big fish and flat blue ocean! Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Quepos Fishing Blue Marlin

John W had a stellar day out there today, landing this really nice 350 pound Blue Marlin and 4 sailfish! The Blue Marlin put up a great fight, over an hour to get to the leader and it made several 800-1000 yard runs like the one in the picture, making us use the full reverse to keep it from getting away! Great day of fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Quepos Fishing Reels

Just got in some new toys for the fishing boats! This year out fishing, we seriously wore out some reels with several double digit 100+ pound billfish days. So here are some of our new sailfishing rigs. We also ordered a bunch of FinNor powerlite rods, so we are ready for some more Epic fishing battles. Gotta love New Shimano fishing gear, it's how we do fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Been some really good inshore fishing on the full days. We have been devoting about half the days to going after roosterfish. Haven't been a lot of quantity of roosterfish out, but we have gotten at least 4-5 good bites a trip, and they are coming out really big. The other part of the inshore days has been all about catching a ton of snapper and grouper, and there have been some great numbers. Weather has been really good lately, little to no daytime rain, and the ocean has been good to us. Been some great inshore fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Marlin season is upon us! Here in the summer are when the big Marlin come out and we are so looking forward to some awesome billfish action! Starting in late April and lasting through August, Costa Rica is one of the best places in the world to snag a big Black Marlin. There should also be some Blue Marlin out as well, and it will be an exciting time! Last summer we also did really well with the sailfish, releasing several each trip and there were quite a few dorado around for food. There is also an offshore reef that heats up sometimes for the huge snapper, so that will start being an option soon as well. Inshore fishing during the summer will be great as well, the bait is generally good, and good bait means big roosterfish! May-August is going to be awesome!!!

Costa Rica Info

Sailfish Quepos Costa Rica Thinking about doing something tropical but don't know where to start? I'd love to get everything setup for you! I have stayed at almost every hotel here, I know which ones you will like and which ones are prettier on their webpages :) Let me handle all the details like hotel reservations and transport, so you can focus on just relaxing. Also, Costa Rica is by far the most stable and safe place in Latin America. With us guiding your trip, you will see all the awesome things this amazing and safe country has to offer. One of the most diverse places on Earth, Costa Rica has much more than just the awesome beaches which are 5 minutes from the docks. If you have the time, it's worth a trip to the Volcano Arenal, a very active Volcano with a slew of Hot Water Parks at the base. And for the hiking and adreniline type, check out MonteVerde. High up in the mountains, it's a cool climate. They have built crazy trails with suspension bridges and long ziplines to check out. Also, MonteVerde Boasts some of the best ATV and Horseback trails in the world!Even if you can't fish, I love to answer any questions you have at all about the country. I have been to just about everywhere there is to go here, and I'd love to share what I loved. But a bit of warning, after my first trip here, I was hooked, so be careful or we just might become neighbors :)

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.

John S owns all three 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.
