Best Times of the Year for Marlin Fishing Los Suenos
During the months of December–April, it is all about sailfish but the marlin fishing is sporadic. This is the time of year that captains report double-digit sailfish releases and you will see all the records are broken during the tournaments held at this. At this time the seas are relatively calm and the great weather coupled with incredible offshore fishing make these months good time to book a Los Suenos fishing charter.
From June to August the region is inundated with all the big game species. This is also the time of year when the tuna traditionally show up, and with that this is also the best time for marlin fishing Los Suenos as these beasts are showing up here in large numbers. There are sailfish still hitting hard and fast, as well as plenty of mahi-mahi for the BBQ. This time of year is where many captains will be hunting in-shore for roosterfish, snapper, grouper, and other reef dwelling favorites.
In September and October the rain slows things slow down for both offshore and in-shore fishing, and there are fewer charters available, with many captains working on maintaining and upgrading their boats
The transitional months of May and November in general offer very good fishing in any part of Costa Rica.
