Mid November 2018
Well it looks like we are still in the dorado derby here in Quepos Costa Rica! Several nice Mahi every trip out. But we are seeing quite a few more sailfish and marlin mixed in that early in the month, we have a marlin behind the boat almost every trip, and at least a few sailfish around too. There were a couple of days the customers wanted to turn the radar on and leave the dorado, and all of those days we found some nice schools of mid sized Yellowfin tuna, but the main story is the big water change (green to blue) which has all the floating sticks and logs. Tons of dorado under that, and then tons of billfish trying to eat the dorado! Great fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!

Wow, the last two weeks of October was the best Mahi Mahi / Dorado run we have ever had here. We were seeing 30-40 nice sized Mahi per trip. In the Mahi, we were seeing a few sailfish, and there were a few schools of YellowFin Tuna out there as well, but look at the size of these Mahi! Amazing offshore fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Probably the best September we have ever had. A few years back, Costa Rica outlawed all the big international Tuna ships from their waters. I had always believed that the Tuna boats killed mostly Tuna, but in the last four years, it seems like almost every month is better than the month before it. We had several days this (the last week of September) with 5 billfish releases AND multiple eating fish. Usually Dorado, and big ones, but we have also seen some of the biggest YellowFin Tuna I have ever seen in Costa Rica. Panama used to be the place to go to catch bit YellowFin, but now I believe there are more here, and the ones here are bigger. Crazy good month, lots of double digit days out there, I expect October and November to be even better! Great weather, fishing, and ocean here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Been some really really big dorado out there. I bet if we weighed some, we'd be right up there with the record. I don't remember ever seeing this many sailfish as well. Junior had a day right in the middle of August with 22 sailfish RELEASED! That means even more hooked up. And then both Stress Reeliever boats have been on the Tuna lately, we are wearing out those Furuno Radars tracking all those birds, and the first week of August was loaded with Marlin. John W had a day with 4 Marlin releases before noon, and not at the FADS, just right out in front of Quepos. Great offshore fishing, maybe the best month of the year, but July was soo good too it's hard to say!
Wow, we just had the best week of the year for Marlin! John W had a day this week with a Blue Marlin, and Black Marlin and some sailfish! There have also been some nice YellowFin Tuna out there, quite a few dorado, and some sailfish around, but I don't remember a time when there was at least one Marlin hookup on almost every trip out there! Great Marlin fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
Just had the best June ever for sailfish! Various day over 10 sailfish and John W even had a day with 15 sailfish releases! There were also some YellowFin Tuna, Dorado and a few Marlin around, but the big story this June were the sailfish! Great offshore fishing this June in Quepos Costa Rica!
