Costa Rica Sailfishing is World Class!
Costa Rica sailfishing is a famous and world renown country that attracts travelers from all over
to catch some of the best sailfish in the world. The large blue and gray finned fish can travel up to 50
knots making it the fastest fish in the ocean and the excitement that comes with it is worth the catch!
The sailfish are a good fish to catch, especially for more beginners, because they are a rather
easy fish to catch. Part of the reason of why the sailfish is an easier catch is due to the high number of
them located in Costa Rica. The other reason is because of the aerial display they perform upon being
hooked. Not only is their performance great for taking pictures but the amount of energy used when
the fish is jumping out of the water quickly tires them out which they then no longer have any energy
leftover to put up a fight when you begin to reel them in.
Costa Rica sailfishing is famous for its fishing partly because of the small size of the country,
which is only a few hours drive to both the Atlantic and Pacific coast from the Capital city of San Jose.
The Pacific side is mostly where the bigger game are located and is a hotspot for all kinds of other fishes
as well. In fact, Costa Rica has over 40 fishing world records that have been set. Some Costa Rican
fishing boat tours claim that the average catch of sailfish is between 5-25 fish caught per boat per day!
The best time to visit Costa Rica for sailfish are between May and September in the northern parts of
Costa Rica near Tamarindo, Papagayo Gulf, and Playas de Coco. Then during the time periods of
November to March the Pacific southern zones of Golfito and Puerto Jimenez become the better fishing
areas. Some of the best fishing areas of Costa Rica include: Los Suenos, Playa Herradura, and Quepos.
The low times to go fishing for sailfish on the Pacific side of Costa Rica is from September to November
and on the Caribbean side from June to July. However, part of the reason of why people are attracted
to visit Costa Rica is because of the weather that stays warm all year round for fishing. So, come to
beautiful Costa Rica, a fishing paradise.
