In mid to late February, the fishing weather out of Los Suenos marina is balmy with sunshine every day and calm, flat seas. December-April are summer months in Central America, and it is an ideal time for anglers to hit the waters right now. On land, visitors can expect temperatures ranging from the mid to high 80s°F, creating a comfortable environment for both fishing excursions and leisurely beach days around the resort and nearby Jaco. Inshore, the waters maintain a high average temperature of around 84°F to 87°F, enticing a variety of species that enjoy warmer waters to come in closer to the coastlines. Offshore, temperatures typically hover around the same range, providing optimal conditions for pelagic game fish including marlin, sailfish, and dorado. The warm water temperatures encourage baitfish to gather in abundance, attracting larger predatory species and increasing the likelihood of successful catches. As the sun rises over the Pacific, anglers can anticipate thrilling encounters with trophy sized fish.

Offshore Bites 🎣🐟

Offshore fishing in February presents an exhilarating opportunity to target a diverse range of species, including sailfish, dorado, marlin, and yellowfin tuna. To hook majestic sailfish, we often deploy trolling techniques, trailing live bait or colorful lures behind the boat at varying depths. The acrobatic dorado (mahi mahi), known for their vibrant hues and fierce fights, are enticed with a mix of live bait and artificial lures cast near floating debris or weed lines. Targeting the formidable marlin requires patience and skill, employing large, flashy lures and teasers to attract these apex predators. Yellowfin tuna are often found feeding near underwater structures or alongside schools of baitfish. Anglers utilize live bait rigs or vertical jigging techniques to entice bites. Heavy-duty tackle, including top-of-the-line rods and reels spooled with ample line, are essential for battling these powerful game fish. With the right equipment and tactics, you can look forward to some incredible encounters.

Inshore Bites 🎣🪝

During the latter half of February, inshore fishing in Los Suenos offers anglers thrilling opportunities to target a variety of prized species, including roosterfish, Cubera snapper, amberjack, and even smaller yellowfin tuna. Anglers troll the nearshore waters, where rocky outcrops, reefs, and submerged structures provide ideal habitats for these formidable game fish. To entice the elusive roosterfish, usually using live bait near rocky shorelines or sandy beaches brings good results. Cubera snapper use their brute strength to target live or cut bait fish. They’re usually found near underwater structures such as rock piles. Amberjack, renowned for their tenacity and fighting prowess, are targeted using vertical jigging techniques or live bait dropped such as bottom bouncing or plunking near underwater pinnacles or steep drop-offs. Meanwhile, smaller yellowfin tuna can be found prowling inshore waters, particularly near schools of smaller fish. Using light to medium tackle with sturdy rods and reels spooled with braided line helps to handle their powerful runs.
