Fish you may encounter:
Dorado are colorful fish that are found in-shore. The ones found offshore are hard-fighting. Once hooked, they make acrobatic leaps. They are also referred to as dolohinfish and mahi mahi. They are in the 10-20 pound range, though some 60 pound ones have been landed. The fight might wear you out but you will get a great meal out of it.
Yellowfin tuna are mostly hooked at football size, though it’s possible to catch one that is 300 pounds. The body of a tuna is conical with tapered ends. They grow quickly, weighing 8 pounds at 18 months old. They are a sought after game fish and the highlight of fishermen’s tales.
You may have to fight a marlin for hours. Blue marlin are the most common ones found in Costa Rica. Black and striped marlin are also hooked frequently. With luck, you can get one that is about 500 pounds. You will recognize a marlin by its upper jaw which is a long spear shaped point.
A staple of sport fishing in Costa Rica is the sailfish. They twist and turn and you must retain tension on the line. They are so common that you might have a double digit day or get two hooked at once. The distinguishing feature is the sail-shaped dorsal fin. They are typically 8 feet long and can be 220 pounds.
