Jaco/Herradura/Los Suenos Fishing Forecast
The fishing offshore is heating up. Sailfish numbers picked up and have provided a consistent 5 to 12 bites a day. There have been some scattered marlin, most blues, but not in great numbers compared to the same time in 2014. Not much floating debris holding bait to target them on, properly due to less rainfall. The yellowfin tuna have been consistent especially compared to a bad showing last year. Hopefully it is a sign of the limits placed on tuna purse seiners this year having a positive effect for the future.
Inshore we will continue to have excellent bottom fishing for grouper and snapper, many easy days loading up the cooler with great eating fish.
The rooster fish will be consistent, mixed in with jacks, occasional snappers and mackerel.
From now through December, expect the sailfish numbers to remain good, it is a rare day for us not to catch any, even in their offseason. Marlin, mostly blues and stripes, should be showing up in better numbers from now through December, and it is common to get at least one shot a day.
Mahi Mahi (dorado) are beginning to show in good numbers and will peak in October and November. We have several weeks where we need to get away from them to catch anything else. Yellowfin should hang around through October in decent numbers.
Inshore -the bottom fishing will remain strong for snappers and groupers.
Roosterfish are around the rocks year round, along with jacks, & occasional cubera snapper. Juvenile yellowfins and small wahoo will also be common around inshore reefs.
