Captain Jon AndersonFishing Report

Fishing Report – January 2012

A lot is happening in Quepos with the month of November finished up.  Visitors that came for the week of Thanksgiving kept the fleet of charter boats busy fishing catching record numbers of Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado and Tuna.

For the month of December, hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!  Our fishermen are gearing up for the high season starting “NOW”, the month of January.  All captains and mates changing lines, polishing, cleaning and looking over every part of their boats to be ready for another great season here in “Fishing Paradise”.

On to new information for our captains to utilize.  You guys can get information to help catch fish!  How?  Through Oceanographic Information Module Site at  With this info you can plan your trips.  It also gives you tides, temperatures, currents, as well as a weekly forecast for wave activity on our side, the Pacific Coast.

Now something that you (and myself) aren’t going to like.  The cost of sport fishing is going up.  Incopesca (Costa Rican fisheries Institute) is raising rates effective January 1, 2012.  Nonresidents will be paying $30.00 for annual fishing license.  The monthly license for $13.00 is gone, vanished, no longer, caput!  Boat Registrations are also going up.

Closing on a positive note.  Living in Quepos, Costa Rica with the people, the weather and last but not least the fishing is AWESOME!!!

At Tropical Waters Sport Fishing we believe and support “catch & release”, to preserve and to save our billfish population for generations to come.
