Crocodile Bay Resort - Costa Rica Fishing Report   


Fishing Report - November, 2013


Sailfish in Costa Rica









We are now two weeks into our 15th season. It is a typical November with marlin, sails, some dorado and a few tuna here and there. The action has been pretty steady except on the few rainy days the last week or so. Eighty-five year young Dick Goldwasser brought his lovely wife Barbara down to celebrate their 66th wedding anniversary. Barbara enjoyed relaxing and enjoying other opportunities around the resort, but Dick didn’t miss a lick on the water. His first day out he bagged 8 nice roosters, followed the next by 4 sails, a tuna, and 4 dorado. His last day also included a marlin battle, sails and dorado. Several striped marlin have also shown up which is not real common for November.


Chris and Becky Ellis took a 300 pound marlin and some sails. Their inshore fishing got blown out by weather but they managed a nice African pompano for dinner. Pete and Dani Meister had good fishing both offshore and for roosters except for the stormy day that affected everyone.


Inshore, snapper fishing has been slow for some reason, but the roosters when biting are averaging 20 to 30 pounds with a few larger ones taken as well. Things will pick up as we pass the upcoming moon and it looks like we are off to a good start of out 15th season.


All around the fishing has been decent with sails approaching 10 raised per boat which is good numbers for early November. There is enough marlin around to make the journey offshore worthwhile. Not everyone will get one but you never know when it is your turn.
