Inshore Fishing

Inshore fishing is anything within 9 miles of the shore line. Estuaries, bays, inter-coastal waterways, and saltwater flats are often wrongly listed as the only popular inshore fishing charter spots.

Half day inshore fishing charters are for those who want to enjoy the amazing Guanacaste, Costa Rica coastline in a 4 hour fishing charter. We take you fishing in the middle of Gulf of Papagayo where we would catch: mahi mahi, roosterfish, bonitos, red snapper, jacks, amberjack, grouper and much more. Our inshore fishing charters have a duration time of 4 hours (7:30 a.m – 11:30 a.m). Take your family, friends or your couple to fishing and enjoy Costa Rica from another angle. We provide beach boat pick up from any resort around the Gulf of Papagayo.

Please take few minutes to read important information about our inshore fishing charter offerring in the Gulf of Papagayo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. You can learn what we fish for and view a list of boats that can be booked online to secure your Costa Rica fishing trip.

What we fish for

Dorado, also known as Mahi Mahi, are caught almost year round; however, there are more catches in the rainy season, between May through October. We catch them because they congregate on weed lines when fishing both inshore and offshore.

Roosterfish are caught year round as they do not migrate. In the dry season (from December until early May) you can expect bigger catches.  However, in the rainy season (from late May until November) you can expect to catch more Roosterfish, but they average size can be smaller.

Wahoo usually start to show about the time the rains start in May, and then peak in July and August. Most are caught around the rocky points and islands, but you will pick one up occasionally fishing offshore.

Tuna Fish Sportfishing Reviews

My wife and I came down for our honeymoon to secrets in papagayo Costa Rica. We decided to book a fishing trip on one of the days we were staying here and we booked la huida with Noel “nito” and Armando. They were waiting for us at the beach at 730 am like they had told us with a clean well maintained boat. We took the boat about 45 minutes out and began trolling for mahi mahi, meanwhile we started trolling we saw a pod of dolphins which made the wife very happy! It took us an hour or so of trolling to get into the fish and we were able to land 3 mahi mahi by the end of the day. My wife is not into fishing but they helped her land the largest of what we caught which is pretty cool of them. If you are staying at any of the larger hotels they will keep what you caught cold and set you up with a cooler for a small fee to bring it home with you. All in all it was a lot of fun and I would do it again. May 20 2019
