Greetings Anglers! As I write this report its mid-June and this is my favorite forecast of the year as July-August are the two best months for fishing our local waters. The bite for marlin, sailfish, yellowfin, dorado, snapper, wahoo and roosterfish are all excellent for the next two months.

So far this season we’ve been hitting BIG roosters, many beautiful sailfish in the 125-pound range, a 220-pound yellowfin and large schools of ‘footballs’, huge numbers of dorado and probably the best wahoo season I’ve seen.

The dorado right now are abundant, although small. By the time you read this they’ll be double their current size. The marlin bite has been strong and should be in full swing by July.

People often ask about fishing during July and August with this being our ‘Green Season’ or rainy season. Most of the rain occurs late afternoon and over night. Also, it doesn’t rain very much over water, rather, over land. On the water we can avoid the rain for the most part or, being aft-deck covered on ‘Dream On’ & ‘Loretta’, we can plow right through it and often hit a strong bite.

Dream On Sport Fishing has entered a promotional relationship with Moosehead Brewery and are now offering FREE Moosehead Beer on all ‘Dream On’ and ‘Loretta’ charters! #TheMooseIsLooseInCostaRica

I’m also proud to announce that Dream On Sport Fishing has earned tripadvisor “Certificate of Excellence” for the 6th straight year and their “Hall of Fame” award for the 2nd straight year. #DreamTeam #GreatCrew
