What sort of fish can someone expect to catch during a Quepos fishing trip?

Posted by manuelantoniofishing on January 16th, 2014

For anyone looking for a Costa Rican fishing trip that will live long in the memory – for all of the right reasons – they need look no further than Quepos. As an area that is recognised and loved for its beaches and marine areas, there is simply nowhere better for either experienced or novice anglers to go if they are looking for a great chartered trip.

Quepos charters give tourists the opportunity to enjoy fantastic and breathtaking natural scenery, whilst pitting themselves against a great range of fantastic fish. And, it really is a venue that can offer the right trip for everyone, whether that means for people who are looking to get out onto the waters on a budget, or even those who are ready and willing to go all out, no expense spared, and really make it the fishing trip of a lifetime.

When it comes to Quepos fishing charters, there are a number of types of fish that are “up for grabs”, as it were. Two of the most common types of fish that are found by Quepos boats are Sailfish and Marlin. The Sailfish in particular is recognised as one of the most common fish found in and around all of the Costa Rican waters, and is found throughout the year, though between December and May is recognised as their “peak time”. Usually blue or grey in colour, Sailfish bear a resemblance to Swordfish and other Marlins due to their elongated bill.

Marlins, which are also regularly found in this area, are recognised as a speedy competitor in fishing circles. There is nowhere better for people to “test themselves against all three types of Marlin” than with Quepos fishing charters, where people can go for Blue, Black and Striped Marlin.

Though Sailfish and Marlin are the two most commonly found fish in Quepos waters, they are most certainly not the only attraction. Dorado are another species that can be found all year round, although May is perhaps the most popular month for those looking to catch them. Compared to the rest of Costa Rica, big schools of Dorado are in fact quite common when it comes to Quepos fishing. Quepos boats will often also find that Yellowfin Tuna are also often seen in large schools just below the water.

Finally, for the person who is looking for something of a trophy fish from their Quepos fishing experience, they need look no further than the Roosterfish. These are able to reach nearly six feet in length, and can be a real highlight, not only of peoples’ Quepos fishing charters but their whole holiday in general.
