OSA Fishing, Costa Rica Charter Fishing

Costa Rica deep sea fishing record

We are located in southern Costa Rica on the OSA Peninsula which offers the best of both worlds when it comes to Costa Rica charter fishing. For offshore sport fishing charters we need only run a couple to roughly 30 miles offshore for the best big game fishing the Pacific has to offer.

For anglers that want to fish a bit closer to home then we go charter fishing inshore for species like roosterfish, grouper, snapper, and other exotic species in the Golfo Dulce where Captain Mark Corn caught a record Colorado Snapper that weighed in at a tremendous 24 pounds 8 ounces.

Marlin Fishing Costa Rica

Costa Rica marlin fishing
Costa Rica sport fishing offers anglers a multitude of exciting species to target but pictured above is a blue marlin and that's what Costa Rica fishing is all about.

Marlin fishing in Costa Rica is in a class all by itself. Costa Rica marlin fishing charters also attracts a special class of angler that thrives on the thrill of the hunt for this magnificent billfish. The anticipation of the knock down, and then the hook-up is when the heart and adrenaline start pumping. Now you're ready to test your fighting skills against this awesome billfish, the Pacific blue marlin. The challenge is to get him to the boat before he jumps, shakes, or flips his way to freedom. Are you up to the challenge?

Costa Rica charter fishing also means sport fishing trips for yellowfin tuna, wahoo, sailfish, colorful dorado, and many other species all of which make for some great Costa Rica sport fishing but it's Costa Rica blue marlin fishing that most fishing enthusiasts want to talk about and experience. Plus a successful battle with a powerful blue marlin, the true fish gladiator of the deep make for the best vacation pictures and fish stories to carry back home.
