Tamarindo Fishing Charters
Tamarindo Costa Rica fishing is the number one tourist activity for travelers visiting northwestern Costa Rica. The Tamarindo region lies along the beautiful Pacific ocean where there is plentiful deep water fishing grounds just off the coast of Tamarindo. Sportfishing in Tamarindo means fishing in waters that are very rich in natural marine resources such as all the billfish species along with dorado and many of the tuna species.
When not fishing the deep waters where the pelagic species run you can move to fishing Tamarindo's shallower waters and cash in on the plentiful bottom fishing species. Bottom fishing in Tamarindo means your chances of hooking into a colorful roosterfish or a giant cubera snapper are very high.
Tamarindo Deep Sea Fishing
Deep sea fishing in Tamarindo means exactly that. Tamarindo deep sea fishing means you will likely be fishing in 1200-2000 fathoms of water. This is where the term pelagic fishing originates in that the fish in these waters are always on the move throughout the deep water column down to around 500 fathoms in search of prey.
Big blue marlin, sailfish, dorado, wahoo, tuna and other offshore or deep sea species are readily available while fishing in Tamarindo. To fish these deep waters means a run to the continental shelf which is about a 45 minute run offshore of Tamarindo. Although Tamarindo deep sea fishing and fishing in these deep blue waters sounds exciting an angler need not always run 45 minutes offshore to catch a large billfish. Giant blue marlin, tuna, and all the so called "offshore species" can many times be caught just a few miles off the beach. That is one of the many reasons Tamarindo fishing is so great because of the abundant big game fishing inshore and offshore.
