Marlin in the Morning, Weather in the Afternoon

Capt. Bob Baker
September 2, 2010
Boca Chica - Saltwater Fishing Report

With the numbers of MARLIN being so high here in Costa Rica right now, and the shorter run to the fishing grounds, we`ve put Panama on the back burner for a bit.

We only have to motor 11 miles to leave the Golfo Duce here and we are in open Pacific. The marlin are anywhere from 5 to 10 miles from the points. (Mata Palo and Punta Banco).

Sardinas are growing , becoming ¨bite sized¨, and we are able to jig up enough to bait n`switch a sail if one comes up, or stop and drop for awhile over a reef on the way home. Some very hefty amberjacks and African pompano are being lifted, on their way to the smoker and the grill.

Blue runner are a bit difficult right now, but there are some nice ¨torpedo¨bonitos at the mouth of the Gulf, and the blacks love em`.

Three guys from San Jose fished 2 days last weekend. Had 4 marlin hooked, landed 2. Not too shabby. Also got some amberjack to take back to the family. We tried for some corvina with them, but the swell was too much, and we didn`t want to put anyone at risk. Always time for them on the next trip.

While trolling feathers for bonitos off Mata Palo the other day, we were pleased to get into some small yelow fin tuna. Sashimi for everyone!

Looking forward to more clients this coming season. We`ll have some great deals for our anglers. Give us a shout !
Until then,

Good Fishing ! Wherever You are in the world.
