Targeted species in Papagayo
Dorados 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 to catch an 80lbs roosterfish. However, in the rainy season (from late May until November) you can expect to catch more, but their average size can be 40lbs roosterfish.
