Best Fishing Snook is in Costa Rica

Best Fishing Snook is in Costa Rica

Some of the best fishing snook in the world are located in Costa Rica.  Both the Atlantic and

Pacific side are known to have an abundance of snook all year round.  Specifically, it is known, that the

best fishing snook are located on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica.  There are many kinds of snook

available in Costa Rica; the most common snook sought by anglers is the Caribbean snook.  Some of the

different kinds of snook include: the fat snook, swordspine snook, and the tarpon snook.

 

The best fishing snook are often found near the river mouths and sardines and blue runners

have been described to be the preferred bait.  Most of the local Costa Ricans (ticos) are often seen

fishing along the river mouths.  Sometimes small boats (pangas) are used to get as close as they can to

the shore, before the wave breaks, where there is good game as well.

 

An article for Outdoor Life wrote about a new world record that was recently reached in 2014

and recorded in the International Game Fishing Association (IGFA) book record.  The article describes a

Florida man by the name of Michaels who took a favorite reoccurring fishing trip to Costa Rica.  His

group caught more than a dozen fish, mostly in the 30 lb. range with two larger fish at 47 lbs. and 50

lbs., but the record breaker that Michaels caught on the Pacific Quepos side of Costa Rica weighed in at

nearly 60 lbs.!  This broke the previous record for a snook that was also caught in Costa Rica in 1991,

which weighed in at 57 lbs. and 12 ounces.  Michaels was kind enough to reveal his strategy, stating

“The new moons in March and April are when the big females stage off the beaches before they move

into the rivers to spawn … Each time, everything happens in three days.”  Michaels also noted that he

has, “experienced world class snook fishing in Costa Rica”.

What tarpon tackle do you need to use down here in Costa Rica? Let’s go over what we use when trying to land these Caribbean monsters.


Tarpon on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica can be found anywhere from the backwaters to surf and offshore. Generally we catch them in about 60 feet of water, but you can find them even in water up to 160 feet in depth.
