New Fishing Grounds Discovered in Costa Rica

Everyone knows well enough about the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, but did you know about the Caribbean Coast? Unlike the old thoughts, this area is safe, fun, full of Caribbean flavor and inexpensive. There is no commercial fishing pressure, no divers, spear fishermen or even your everyday fishing crowd.

There are a select few that fish off Pangas (small wooden local boats) and sell their catch to the few local restaurants. The areas of Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo (Talamanca) are just waiting to be discovered and there are two European fishermen that have boats and are willing to take you out for a day in the virgin and unexplored waters of the Caribbean side of Costa Rica.
The fishing here is completely open to catching all types of bottom fish like Yellowtail Snapper, Mahogany Snapper, Black Grouper, Dog Snapper, Cubera Snapper, Barracuda, Cobia, Sharks, Amberjack and many more. The more top water pelagic species include Atlantic Sailfish, Wahoo, Dorado (Mahi-Mahi), King Mackerel, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna. Closer to shore, there is a huge population of large Tarpon, Fat Snook, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle and Permit.
The 32 foot Cobia, powered by twin 4 stroke Yamaha engines and owned by the Frenchman Thomas and Captain Pino is new, well equipped and ready to take on everything you can handle. This boat is well equipped with big game fishing rods and reels, plus the experienced captain who has over 20 years fishing the local water. There are so many spiny lobsters in the area, that it is guaranteed everyone on board will either catch their own if they jump in or have the Captain do so for them. The other boat, owned by an Italian named Alex, is a 21 foot Sea Chaser powered by a 150hp Honda four stroke engine and ready for the blue water diver. Alex has been diving these waters for 7 years and brings home the bacon. He can stay underwater for more than 3 minutes and dives in deep water while spear fishing some of the biggest Cubera Snapper, Black Grouper and Amberjack you may ever see. There are Hogfish, Dog Snapper, King Mackerel, Cobia and many more available to the adventurer who is willing to dive with Alex.
This adventurer custom makes his own spear guns using the best and most expensive wood in Costa Rica. These custom made spear guns would cost over $2,000 in the US. On Alex's boat, you can fish and dive with or without tanks while he gets down and dirty with the big boys of the reefs. His fishing day also includes spiny lobster. These two incredible options are ready to be taken advantage of and only can make it happen. Check out our reel deal inexpensive packages that include accommodations and tours of the area.
