Boca Chica - Saltwater Fishing Report
Right now we´re doing maintenence at the lodge up in Costa Rica, but when last we fished outside the reefs of PUNTA BURICA, we were covered up with yellowfin tuna.
Majority were in the 10-25 lb. class, although we did have one zinger on , using a BRAID butterfly jig (pink/silver/white), but the client let the line touch the gunwale for just a split ( or rather SNAP !) second.
Reports say all areas fishing well. Montuosa continues to shine. Marlin, a few sails, and lots of tuna. Love that place.
Blue and black MARLIN will begin to dominate the scene very shortly, both in Panama and out of our lodge in Playa Zancudo, Costa Rica.
Inshore continues great, as usual, and should get better, with more and more WAHOO catches coming. But the hoo´s are really closer to Sept./Oct. and into first weeks of Dec.
Good Fishing, WHEREVER You Are !! Capn Bob
Boca Chica Fishing Forecast:
TUNA will continue in good numbers, with the big girls showing more and more in the coming months.
Black MARLIN will increase in numbers from now on.
Sailfish will be spotty, but a few are always around.
Dorado will improve. They´ve been spotty lately.
WAHOO will steadily increase in numbers as the water temp. drops a bit, with the end of August to mid-December the best.
Inshore for roosters, snappers, corvina will continue excellent. Year -round fishery.
