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!
Late February 2019
Wow, the fishing has been different everyday out there. We have had lots of sailfish through the area, which is pretty normal for February, but we are also seeing some days with big yellowfin tuna, some Marlin and a lot of big dorado. Weather is perfect and the seas have been really flat. Make sure you follow our instagram and facebook pages for every day fishing pictures from beautiful Quepos Costa Rica!
January was amazing! Big Dorado, Big Yellowfin Tuna, a great run of Marlin, both blue and black the first two weeks, and then sails every trip. The ocean has been totally flat, and there hasn't been any rain. And did I mention it's always 80 degrees? Could get any better fishing than here in Quepos Costa Rica
This has really been the best month we have ever had on Marlin. John W and Junior have both seen Marlin on 90 percent of their trips, and they are hooking up to 4 per trip on good trips. In addition to the Marlin, there have been lots of days with schools of YellowFin Tuna around, sometimes big ones, and then there have been lots of dorado and sails around as well. Been some really great December fishing here in Quepos Costa Rica!
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!
