Golfito´s offshore fishing

Offshore Sport Fishing in Golfito Costa Rica

The southern coast of Costa Rica is famous for its offshore fishing for sailfish and marlin, tuna and dorado, wahoo, and more. Golfito is a prime location for targeting these species while in Costa Rica and Golfito has a variety of boats that will get you into the fish offshore.

It is not uncommon to release over a dozen sailfish in a single day or even multiple marlins when the bite is hot. Dinner is never far away either while fishing the deepwater offshore of Costa Rica’s southern coasts as dorado and tuna call these waters home and make a great Costa Rican dinner.

Offshore the action can be hot with certain months producing large dorado by the dozens. The rainy season washes trees and other rubble down the rivers and out into the ocean creating currents filled with floating debris that attracts the baitfish that the dorado feed on.

Another phenomenon is the annual runs of yellowfin and bigeye tuna. Lucky anglers catch tuna over 300 pounds every season off the coasts of southern Costa Rica.

Wahoo is another favorite table fish aside from being one of the most ferocious hunters in the ocean. These fish swim at speeds that approach 70 MPH and will scream the drag off of a reel like nothing else in their class. Another seasonal fish, the wahoo should definitely be in your sights if you fish the rainy months in Costa Rica.
