That’s Fishin’ – December 2013

One word. ANGST. That’s right, that’s what happens when a sea-loving maven doesn’t get to stretch her legs on the water often enough. Especially when the fish are running. I managed one offshore trip this month, had to cancel three others. Funny how I work to fish but sometimes the work takes over and the fishing doesn’t happen. So, I have to be satisfied with only 11 Wahoo. 

You must be thinking, this girl is out of her mind, and yes, you are right. For those of you who have fishing in your blood, it’s easy to understand. For those of you who don’t – sorry – but whatever.

Ohhhh yeah, it’s that time of year folks. The time of year when fishermen wring their hands, lick their lips and look to the sea for their adventure. That’s just what I’ve been doing too. It might be off-season for tourists, but the fishing season is ON!

That’s Fishin’ – August 2013

Sarah fishingBy Sarah Munro 

The past month has brought lots of action both inshore and offshore.  Tides and currents have been super strong with hurricanes further north in the Pacific, which can definitely change fishing.    Another factor is moon cycles, which affect tides; and fishing.   And, the Super-Moon just ended.

Off season?! What off season?

The fish are here, that’s for sure.  I went out twice this past month with local captains.  Inshore was in a traditional panga boat among the whipping waves of Palo Seco.  We dropped lines in the water and within 3 minutes we had a fish on.  Awesome.  Got some snook, jack, a pair of catfish, and had a hell of a time with 3 fish that never made it to the boat.  Not bad for just a half day out.

Fishing is a disease and I’ve got it. Deal with it……

Sarah FishingBy Sarah Munro

So WHAT if it ended my last relationship,  this one is working just fine……

I am so excited……… The OFFSHORE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE JUST ABOUT HERE.  On the other hand, I’m soooo bummed out because the tourney happens after my deadline.  Can’t win it all I guess.  Otherwise, this chick is headed out for some onshore action and from what I hear – It is Totally hitting.  I’ve talked to a few captains in town and apparently there’s been some massive sea bass and red snapper brought in by even rookie anglers…….That’s makin’ my day…….. how ‘bout yours????

That’s Fishin’ – April 2013

Marina Pez Vela just hosted the Quepos Billfish CupBy Sarah Munro

This is world class fishing, and the season is HOT. Hitting inshore on a daily basis are Red Snapper, Roosterfish, and Snook. Offshore, double hook-ups seem to be the norm for sailfish. SWEET! The marlin are hitting, just a bit more elusive than earlier in the year. Wahoo and Dorado are also being boated on a regular basis. Boats were fishing between 14-20 miles out in December and January; the fish have moved off to cooler, deeper waters at around 25 miles. Make sure your cooler is full!
