Fishing just does not get any better than you will find in friendly, peaceful Costa Rica, and because this is a small nation, it is possible to enjoy on a single visit.
On the Pacific, it is common to release a dozen or more sails and even a marlin or two in a single day, and not unusual to release more than 30 sailfish a day. There are also dolphin (including the long –standing International Game Fish Associations all tackle record 87-pounder), giant yellow fin tuna, Wahoo, cubera, roosterfish, a variety of snapper, grouper, blue runners, rainbow runners, snook and much more. And Costa Rica boat operators release all billfish that are not record contenders, so the future of the resource is assured.
In the Peninsula of Osa area, bill-fish are the target of most visiting anglers, and they are seldom disappointed from around December through April. Some sails and marlin are taken throughout the year. From most areas around Costa Rica it is no more than a 12 to 20 mile run to the blue water where most of the billfish action is encountered. Inshore sport includes tuna, roosterfish, Wahoo, dorado, jacks, mackerel, cubera, a variety of small snapper species and even snook.
The snook can be taken trolling just outside the breaker line off the river mouths in the area, but are more often fished from shore.
Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge offers several economically priced sportfishing packages in the incredible waters of the South Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.
More than 40 world records have been set in the area which abounds which schools of dorado, yellow fin tuna, Spanish mackerel, jacks and Wahoo.
