The Fishing

The waters of the Pacific Ocean are home to many different species of fish. The species most frequently caught on our trips are listed below.

Tuna – Yellowfin tuna is the most common species of tuna found in the waters off the coast. They are most abundant in the rainy season months when floating logs and other debris are found in the ocean. There are other species of tuna in the area including Skipjack and Bigeye Tunas, but the most prized catch is the Yellowfin.

Mahi-Mahi – Also known as Dolphin fish or Dorado, Mahi-Mahi is one of the most exciting offshore game fish to catch and see in the open ocean. When hooked, these beautiful fish “light up” with almost neon colors and put up an exciting, high jumping, tail-walking fight. Commonly found near floating objects such as tree branches and other natural debris the rivers wash into the ocean. They feed on the sealife which seeks shelter near and in the floating structures, such as flying fish, squid, and other small fish.

Sailfish – One of the most predominant species here on the Pacific Coast waters of Costa Rica. You should expect to see many free jumpers and excessive amounts of sailfish during the months of December through May. An exciting fish to reel in, as it performs spectacular jumps out of the water and puts up a good fight. We always practice catch and release with the billfish.

Mackerel – Spanish mackerel prefer open water but are sometimes found over deep grass beds and reefs, as well as shallow water estuaries. They form large, fast-moving schools that migrate great distances along the shore When a large school is found; the action is often fast and furious.

WahooIf you love speed then Wahoo is your breed. Considered to be the fastest fish with great endurance, it is a strong fight when hooked. The area is not known to hold great numbers of these fast fish, but you never know. They are found year round in random numbers, however one of these as a catch can provide a GREAT DINNER!

Marlin – Blue, Stripped and Black Marlin is one of the foremost big game species in Costa Rica. The marlin has exceptional size and strength, and is a powerful, aggressive fighter. It runs hard and long, sounds deep, and leaps high into the air in a seemingly inexhaustible display of strength. Marlin is normally found roaming deep waters and congregating near reefs where they find their prey. 

SnookThe Snook is a powerful fish and a thrilling catch, much like the freshwater Largemouth Bass. That is one of the reasons why it is one of the most sought after and prized gamefish to catch. Once hooked its strength and speed are hard to compare to any other game fish of its size.

SnapperMany different species of snapper reside in the waters off the coast of Montezuma including red snapper, yellowtail snapper, and spotted rose snapper. They are found year-round near the shore, over deep reefs and rocky bottoms. Their tasty white meat is a delicacy and provides a delicious dinner.
