Early July 2017
Been a great mix still offshore. Lots of schools of Yellowfin Tuna found with the radar, and lots of Marlin. And then with the night rains, we are seeing some nice floating debris, and around that we are hitting the big Dorado and Marlin too. The Marlin have also been following the schools of YellowFin Tuna, and then we have had more Marlin in open water too. Lots of Marlin out there. Sailfish have not been thick, it seems like they show up a couple of times a week, but the Yellowfin Tuna and Marlin have been the most common so far out there. Great offshore fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Late June 2017
Just got our new 25KW Furuno Radar up and running on our 30 foot Stress Reeliever 2, and it has been picking out nice big schools of YellowFin Tuna at 4 miles on either side of the boat. That has been fairly consistent, almost everytrip. The radar also gives the captain a map of the birds in an 8 mile radius, and with that we have found tons of floating debris that has been holding Dorado, Wahoo and Marlin. Some days the sails come in thick, some days we are catching the other stuff, but there have been a good amount of fish around. It's been hard to predict, and with a lot of variety, some Great Offshore Fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Complete Variety out there, this is one of the rare times when we can really catch anything out there, and don't know what it's going to be! Junior and Pepe had a crazy day out there today, They released a pair of sails in the morning using ballyhoo. They went on the hunt for Tuna with our new Gyro Binoculars we got, and instead of finding YellowFin Tuna, they found a floating tree that had washed out of a river. Under the tree, there was a ton of live bait and they landed 3 nice mahi. Using the live bait, they went out about 200 yards and made some laps and released two nice Black Marlin! Great day of fishing out here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Mid May 2017
Been getting into some nice Marlin and YellowFin Tuna lately! Sails are around, but we are seeing more big Marlin than sails. The YellowFin Tuna schools have been the real story though. Thousands of spinner dolphin, named spinners because they like to jump up in the air and spin and flip, will be running across the top of the water. The goal is to get in front of the dolphin and drop down some bait and wait. The school will cruise right by the boat, and the big Tuna are down below! Great fun, great scenes, great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
End of April 2017
Offshore we are seeing lots of Marlin and YellowFin Tuna. Usuallly this time of the year, it's all sailfish, and we are still seeing a few, but I can't remember a time when we have seen more big Marlin. All great fish, 300+ pounds. YellowFin Tuna has been off the wall as well. There are tons of different schools that are just making laps out in front of Quepos. Big ones as well, many well over 100 pounds and a few over 200! Great offshore fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Early April 2017
Fishing has been different everyday out there! Some days we are seeing all sailfish on live bait fishing on the Furuno Reef, the next day the guys will be chasing down big schools of Tuna and throwing live bait or poppers at them. Weather has been perfect, and the ocean has been super flat! Great offshore fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Here is a cool SHORT video of fishing here this month! No music, but it does have sound (for those of you that are needing a short break from work!)!
