Marlin was the main attraction this week as the lady in the blue dress entertained anglers along the entire Pacific coast. Most were blue marlin in the 200-to-500-pound range, but Matty Jorn of Fishing Nosara checked in with a 300-pound black marlin and some very good inshore action. He reported that Roy and Cathy Cox from St. Augustine, Florida, fished off Garza, on the Nicoya Peninsula, for three days last weekend and had great action on cubera snapper, amberjack and yellow-fin tuna; however their biggest moment was a catch and release of a gorgeous black marlin, estimated at over 300 pounds and taken fishing with Capt. William Mendoza on the Wanderer.
Reports of good marlin action also came out of the Quepos and Los Sueños areas on the central Pacific coast. Both Jesús Vallegas and Leanne Batten of Quepos Sail-fishing Charters reported multiple hookups on marlin with just a fair sailfish bite.
Batten said there have been some marlin out there, but the numbers on sails have not been that stellar. She also reported that the 2011 Harry Gray Fly-Fishing Tournament was held in Quepos this week, and that client Cindi Nelson, who has waited 15 years for her chance at offshore fishing in Costa Rica, had her “Wheel of Fortune wish granted,” releasing two sailfish and catching a nice dorado.
