COSTA RICA

Where We Fish & What We Catch

Our home port is Samara on the Nicoya Peninsular. Our fishing range stretches north to the small bay of San Juanillo and south to the top of Cabo Blanco. This area covers more than 50 nautical miles with depths ranging up to 60 meters.

Coastal fishing

 

Inshore offers a large diversity of species to be fished with all techniques, although we specialize in artificial baits.

Using surface lures, the opportunities for hooking up include the prized Roosterfish, King Mackerel, Red Snapper, Amberjack, Yellowfin Tuna and Jacks.

Jigging, it is possible to take Grouper, Amberjack, Pompano, Black Tuna, Wahoo and Yellowtail.

Deep sea fishing

 

Offshore, there is a continental ravine our Boston Whaler cruising at 30 knots can reach in just 30 minutes.

Trolling, we regularly encounter a large population of Sailfish here, often hooking up with 10 or more in a day, some 150 pounds or more.

Samara is a great place to encounter oyster fishes.

Between March and September, we can also target Blue and Black Marlin in this same area.

Using surface lures offshore, we also target Wahoo and Yellowfin Tuna from June until the end of December.


Catches of Wahoo can exceed 60 pounds, while Yellowfin Tuna can be over 200 pounds.
