Checking Out The Costa Rica Fishing Report

Jan 16, 2008
Costa Rica is a tropical paradise that is abundant in panoramic views and majestic landscapes. Moreover, it is also filled with beaches comprised of fine white sands and pristine waters. Not only that it is a great place to swim and spend a very relaxing vacation but also an excellent area to do some serious fishing. The waters of Costa Rica are the home of a wide range of fish species including tuna, Rooster Fish, Marlin, sailfish, Tarpon, Snook and Mahi Mahi just to name a few. According to the Costa Rica Fishing Report in October 2007, sport fishing has become one of the biggest tourist attractions in the country especially during the months of August through December.

The Costa Rica fishing report also noted that as a result of the increased numbers of fisherman that it's not just the tourism industry that increased but the demand for real estate as well. Investors and tourists all over the world who were enjoying the great fishing frequently decided to buy properties near the beaches and join the increasing number of fishing enthusiasts in the area. As a result new businesses that support the sport of fishing are being established. Boat rental and sales have also increased and there are now numerous fishing schools and other deep sea fishing services. This is definitely a big help not only for the local businesses but also for all of the fisherman seeking to enjoy Costa Rica's great fishing.

However, the Costa Rica Fishing Report for the month of December said that the fishing industry is currently slow in Costa Rica, especially if you are looking for marlin. Although there are a lot marlin sightings, few are interested in taking the bait. This is very uncommon. Usually, it seems as if the fish would want to be caught, taking the bait and sometimes leaping straight into the boat. However, many are still hoping that the fishing will liven up once more since some fishermen have been catching some sailfish and several other species in recent days.

In order for someone to be able to fish in any of the waters of Costa Rica, they must first acquire a legal fishing license. This is usually accomplished through your guide or guide service. You can find some information regarding the fishing license on numerous Costa Rica Fishing web sites. The fishing license is not usually included in the price of your charter. If you decide to fish on your own without a guide then you will have visit the local marina to purchase one. Enforcement officers do check licenses and fines can be costly. Remember the money from the fishing license is used for fishery management and to maintain the cleanliness of the water.

There are few destinations in the world that can match the quality and quantity of fishing opportunities found in Costa Rica waters. One unique aspect of fishing Costa Rica is that you can fish the waters of the Pacific Ocean one day and the next the waters of the Caribbean the next. In either location the fishing is world class.
