Sailfish / Marlin

Off shore anglers come to Costa Rica looking for the dense populations of billfish found here. Sailfish are buy far the most caught and it is not uncommon to release a half dozen or more in a day.

Marlin are the 'holy grail' of deep sea fishing and we see plenty of them. Blue, black and striped marlin abound in Costa Ricas oceans.


-The most popular method of targetting billfish in Costa Rica is trolling both natural and artificial baits. Your crew will put out a "spread" of a combination of big game trolling lures, teasers and natural baits such as rigged ballyhoo or mullet and troll.

Live Bait

-Live bait is a great option when you find large concentrations of billfish. Bonita, Blue Runners and Yellowfin Tuna are the live baits of choice.
