Marlin Fishing in Costa Rica
The largest deep-sea sport fishing prize is the Marlin. The blue and black species can easily approach 600 pounds and, due to the power, size and tenacity of these big game fish, Marlin is one of the most precious trophies of all fishermen. Marlin can be found from southern Costa Rica in the Golfito area to the North Pacific coast.

The best places of Marlin in Costa Rica include Golfito and Drake's Bay in the South, and from Quepos to Los Sueños in the Central Pacific. Marlin fishing is the best in the south and center from December to April. Black Marlin tend to appear more during April and May. The smaller striped Marlin is caught all year round.

An experienced captain and crew are a requirement for successful FAD fishing, many captains can put it on the fish, but if they do not know how to fish the FAD, they will not land any.
