The Fly Boats Fishing Forecast for September and October

The Fly Boats Fishing Forecast for September and October

It is now mid “Green Season” and the fishing has been good.  We expect that to continue into October.

The last couple of months have produced some remarkable days off shore.  Lots of Yellow Fin Tuna, some very large, have been taken, and there is plenty of succulent meat to go around these days.  Nothing like a nice piece of seared rare Ahi fresh off the boat, or maybe some FRESH Sashimi on the way back to the dock?

These months are especially productive on the shallow “reef” areas such as “26 reef” and “Foruno reef” off Quepos.  Reports of a good wahoo bite have been made.  These areas average between 150 and 300 feet deep, and have always been the go to spot for Black Marlin.

Several boats report Black Marlin released including one boat reporting 4 in a single day.  Together with the always present Sail Fish, a lucky angler will achieve a “Grand Slam” with the addition of a Blue or Stripe Marlin also found in the area this time of year.


Although the numbers are down from earlier in the year, there are Sail Fish being released.

The addition of overcast conditions means a more pleasant day on the water, and as usual the water is usually flat.  With the rain usually holding off until late afternoon of evening, it is tight lines all the way around.  Have a great day, and come visit us.
