Capt. Gisele Gutierrez

Guanacaste - Saltwater Fishing Report

The word is out and game fishing buffs are heading for Costa Rican blue waters.

Magazines that cover the sport and its hottest fishing spots all agree on one thing, if you want to catch the big fish head for the waters off Costa Rica all its coast line and blue water are rich in marlin, dorado, sailfish, wahoo, yellowfin tuna and other species are ready to give you a run you won't forget in a live time.

Even the most discerning anglers will be well pleased at the attention and professionalism of Fishing Charter Boat Operators who can take you to the hottest spots on the big blue, not just because they have become good captains through the years but because most of the acaptains in the Papagayo Gulf are locals and they know the fishing business by heart.

Once you've bought your ticket to Costa Rica, take some time to decide what coast you want to fish off. The choices begin on the northern area of the Pacific coast. The Gulf of Papagayo offers excellent opportunities for cubera, snapper, roosterfish, sailfish, marlin, dolfin, yellowfin and wahoo.

Most of the experienced operators that run out of the area sugest heading to the waters surrounding the small group of islands called Islas Murcielagos to the north of the Papagayo Gulf or to Catalinas Islands down south of it.

While many operators are optimistic when taking anglers out, they maintain that the fishing depends primarily on the prevailing conditions such as: wind, rain, moon and currents often determine the availability of many of the most popular big game fish, but rest assured that if they can find the schools for you they will.
