The waters of Quepos are back on track! With the Red Tide passed and gone the waters are back to their beautiful blue color. Fishing has been terrific! With the season slowing down, the fishing hasn’t. With the charter boats still running they are catching all varieties of fish. The Maui Maui are biting pretty hard. That is a good sigh for Dorado in the up coming months. The sailfish are hitting like normal. The sailfish are hitting tackle two and three at a time. Marlin are being caught farther out around the 35 mile marker. As far as Red Snapper, tuna ,mackerel, wahoo,and roosters, the fishing has been very good. In shore is a little shaky now and then, but the fish have been biting.
On to some other business. Fishing licenses have gone up to 30.00 dollars per person. The license is good for a year. There are no monthly licenses available any more. I would like to put a word in for our waters of Costa Rica. We need to follow what other countries are doing to save our billfish for future generations to come. How? By restricting the commercial fishing vessels. Where they can only fish outside a 40 mile perimeter. What that would do for the fish is give them space to repopulate. This would be a great thing for all varieties of fish. Costa Rica Sport fishing generates over 600 million dollars to tourism. And the way we are treating our waters one day it won’t be the awesome place to fish!
