Costa Rica Sportfishing - Sails
Sportfishing with Captain Bill Kieldsen of Costa Rica Fishing, on board the ’Sailfish’ a 35’ Bertram. Costa Rica is fortunate enough to have three different types of Marlin roaming its Pacific coast. One unique thing about Costa Rica is that Marlin can be taken any month of the year. Perhaps the most acrobatic of all blue water fish, the Sailfish has engraved Costa Rica on every international anglers wish list. There’s no wonder why some of the world’s most esteemed biilfish tournaments are held in Costa Rica.
 
 
  Costa Rica’s Premier Sportfishing Charter
Costa Rica is home to some of the best sport fishing in the world. The Central Pacific zone of Costa Rica is renowned for their Sailfish and Marlin fishery, which include the Pacific Sailfish, Black Marlin, Pacific Blue Marlin and Striped Marlin. One unique thing about Costa Rica is that Marlin can be taken any month of the year. Pacific Blue Marlin: the most frequent of the Marlins taken here, three to five hundred pounders are frequent.
 
  Costa Rica Sportfishing on Sailfish
In addition Costa Rica offers an abundance of Dorado, Wahoo and Yellowfin Tuna up to 250 pounds. We offer the most renowned sport fishing charter boat in the Central Pacific zone of Costa Rica: the Sailfish 35’ Bertram. ’Sailfish’ out of Los Suenos marina in Playa Herradura with Captain Bill Kieldsen is a 35’ Bertram powered by twin 370hp Cummins diesels. This fast, comfortable boat with A/C salon is equipped for fly and conventional fishing.
 
  Captain Bill Kieldsen
Captain Bill is well versed in conventional fishing techniques of trolling, bait and switch and the rapidly growing sport of fly fishing. Captain Bill Kieldsen grew up in northern Indiana where he enjoyed fishing with a fly rod. Bill’s background in biology and his use of scientific methods, combined with his lifetime of experience fishing in tournaments and fishing recreationally all over the world enable him to produce fish when others cannot.
 
 
The Fishing
Pacific Blue Marlin: the most frequent of the Marlins taken here, three to five hundred pounders are frequently landed. Costa Rica has yet to see a grander, although several fish over 900 lbs have been taken and fish over 1000 lbs have been hooked and lost. Black Marlin: also taken in the same waters. Several fish over 700 lbs. have been recorded and it has been reported that much larger fish have been hooked up.
 
Striped Marlin: the fish that those lucky enough to have taken grand slams in this country are looking for. These brilliant fighters average around 150 to 200 lbs. Fishing season: october is normally the top month for fishing Marlin in this area, but action is also good in september and november. Occasional Blue Marlin and the rare Black Marlin are likely to be found anytime of year. Also known as Dolphinfish or Mahi-Mahi, the Dorado is one of the most exciting fish to catch on light tackle.
 
Sailfish. Perhaps the most acrobatic of all blue water fish, the Sailfish has engraved Costa Rica on every international anglers wish list. There’s no wonder why some of the world’s most esteemed biilfish tournaments are held in Costa Rica. The beautiful fish, spending more time in the air than in the water during the fight is not as powerful as the Marlin, but always spectacular. Double and triple hookups are not uncommon. February is the key month with the highest concentration.
 
February is the key month with the highest concentration of Sailfish and the possibility of 20 or 30 hookups a day. Year round availability of Sailfish make it a world leader for anglers. Fishing season: mid-december to the end of april is rated the best fishing season, but the big schools often move in about october and stay longer. A few sails always show among the catch from june through september, mixed with other species that are found inshore during those months.
