The inshore fishing around Quepos has been on fire. The water is clearing and the seas are calm.

As the dry season sets in, the large schools of sardines are plentiful along the north shore. Fill your bait well and head out to one of many reefs in the area.

You can live bait for one of the many species living there like rainbow runners, amberjacks and roosterfish. If you’re looking for dinner you are more than likely to take home one of the many species of snapper.

Contact one of the local captains or contact the I-Fish Quepos office for booking info.
