Costa Rica Fishing Info
Costa Rica is an angler's dream come true! Costa Rica is home to some of the best sport fishing and deep sea fishing in the world, with over 89 world records to its credit. The country's Pacific ports and beach resorts provide access to some of the best deep sea fishing in the world, while the canals and rivers of the northern Atlantic coast feature world-class snook and tarpon fishing.
Billfish are the country's biggest attractions, with abundant sailfish and marlin off the Pacific coast, but the fishermen also hook plenty of other feisty fighters, such as wahoo and roosterfish. Though deep sea fishing is the country's forte, there is also great fresh water fishing in Lake Arenal and the larger rivers in the Northern Zone, where anglers can fight with the small but ornery guapote, a hump-backed fish also known as the rainbow bass. Giant marlin, sailfish beyond number; high jumping tarpon, record closs snook an a dozen or more hard hitting fresh water species...
Costa Rica has them all! Fishing in Costa Rica just doesn't get any better than this! In this friendly, peaceful country and because this is a small nation, it's possible to enjoy it all on a single visit, perhaps with a day of white water rafting, volcano and rain forest tours thrown in.
On the Pacific, it's common to release a dozen or more sails and even a marlin or two in a single day, and not unusual to release more than 30 sailfish a day.
There are also giant yellowfin tuna, wahoo, cubera, rooster fish, a variety of snapper; grouper; blue runners, rainbow runners, snook and much more.
