July/August Fishing Report featuring Marlin
As the water begins to cool in July around Drake Bay and Cano Island we are seeing more Blue and Black Marlin bust through our spread. Two Mother/Daughter teams successfully released a big Black Marlin recently on a 30 weight reel. This beauty was estimated at 500 lbs. After the successful release the ladies then caught 11 nice Yellow Fin Tuna, 3 on top water baits. Way to go ladies. While the Sailfish bite is a little slow this time of year, the bite for big Roosterfish on live bait has been very strong. Catching and releasing a big Roosterfish on a spinning rod needs to be a bucket list item for every fisherman. We are typically catching these brutes just 20 minutes from the lodges around Drake and Osa. For clients who wish to have a lot of fish for dinner, we are enjoying a good bite for Cubera, Rock and Yellow tail Snapper along with a nice variety of Grouper. We expect August to remain a great fishing month as we gear up for more rain in September and October. This time of year our clients enjoy seeing the many Humpback Whales that migrate to our warm waters.
Until next time…Tight Lines
