March/April Report from Fish Drake Bay Costa Rica

Fishing Report – March/April 2020

Greetings from Drake Bay, your off the beaten path destination for incredible fishing in Costa Rica.  We anticipate some awesome fishing post COVID-19 since there has been no sport or commercial fishing for the last several months.  As soon as the government re-opens the country, my mates and I on the Reel Escape and Reel Time will be ready to find these hungry fish.  Near shore we will target Corvina, Grouper, Snapper, Small Tuna and Wahoo.  Offshore we will target Marlin, Sailfish, Big Tuna and Mahi.  I literally have thousands of proven spots stored in my Garmin fish finder.  We have all top of the line gear and safety equipment on board.  Come fish with the #1 ranked tour on…

January/February 2020 Fishing Report

  Greetings from your off-the-beaten-path destination in Costa Rica for awesome fishing.  The start of this year’s weather pattern brought us a little more rain and cooler temperatures than normal.  The cooler water temperatures have certainly helped the overall fishing here.  In Drake Bay, we are blessed to have tons of places to fish, many just outside the bay.  Because we are bordered by land that can never be developed (Osa and Corcovado) the scenery is stunning.  Instead of condos and cars we see nothing but beautiful beaches and rain forest.  As an added bonus, the undeveloped Cano Island is just 12 miles from our homeport and as any angler knows structure holds fish. For those people who prefer to…

Fishing Report September-November

Greetings from the remote and beautiful waters of Drake Bay on the Southern Pacific Coast.  As we move more into the rainy or “Green” season expect the fishing to remain strong but the showers to be more prevalent.  Unfortunately, this is typically a time when not many tourists visit Drake Bay.  This is a shame because not only are the Snook, Snapper and Tuna biting but clients on board our boats are treated to a whale show. The magnificent Humpback Whale migration is something you don’t want to miss.  If you have ever been scuba diving while the whales are here, it’s truly magical to hear their cries as these highly intelligent animals communicate with each other.   For those…

July/August 2019 Fishing Report

Drake Bay, Costa Rica   RoosterfishGreetings from the remote and beautiful waters of Drake Bay on the Southern Pacific coast. This time of year, the fishing largely depends on the weather conditions. For the angler who doesn’t mind a little chop on the water, the rewards can be well worth it. For clients who prefer to stay closer to shore, there is currently a goo Wahoo and Tuna bite around Cano Island. Drake Bay is the closest town in Costa Rica to this famous island and its amazing reef system.  Since the island is a National Park, fisherman must remain 3 miles away from the shore. This helps protect the reef and the health of the fish population. This massive…

March & April 2019 Fishing Report

  March/April 2019 Fishing Report Greetings from the beautiful and remote waters of Drake Bay, Costa Rica.  As we begin to transition out of the dry season, the fishing patterns begin to change as well.  We are now enjoying a little rain in the evening and waking up to a beautiful and clear sunrise over the mountains.  In the last two months, we have experienced a pretty solid Sailfish bite and a very good Marlin bite. Most of the Marlin have been hooked “by accident” while trolling for Sails or Mahi. All but one of the fish have been Blues in the 200-250 lb. range.  On March 13th, one lucky fisherman from Denmark hooked an approximate 500 lb. Black Marlin…
