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!
Seeing mostly Sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna out there lately. The schools of Yellowfin are pretty much always around, but they end up being hungry about half the trips. Even when they don't eat, it's still an amazing site though! Usually about an acre of dolphin jumping up out of the water and spinning around. Thousands and thousands of dolphin out in the dark blue water. And then when they come across bait, like flying fish or little offshore sardines, the schools will explode and you will get what we call the Tuna Boil, because the water has so many fish jumping up out of it that it looks like it's boiling. We are also seeing a dorado on 5 trips a week, sometimes a few, and getting maybe a Marlin each week out there, although they have been shy for the last month. That is about to change though, last May we saw ALOT of Marlin around. Great fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Quepos Inshore Fishing Report:
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!
Late February 2019 Inshore Report
Been tons of sardines in the area lately, and that has made for a whole variety of fish lately! We have seen lots of nice roosterfish, some good looking snapper, seabass and snook lately. Sardines have been really easy to locate as well, so more time fishing and less time looking for bait. We have started each trip this week with lookdow baits too, so we have had the ability to troll different types of baits at the same time. Some great inshore fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
