“Floating logs, current lines, anywhere fish are concentrated, anglers have reported to catch up to 10 marlins per day”
Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast is considered one of the best destinations for fishing in the world. Captain Dana Thomas, owner-operator of Hoo’s Your Daddy charter boat, talks to us about June’s fishing activity. Although he was not taking on too many trips due to some boat renovations, he tells us about the overall action.
He describes the seamount trips being great during the offseason, having excellent reports from other boats with double digit catches per day on blue and stripe marlin, yellow fin tuna and a few sailfish. “Eight sailfish, a couple of marlin, some tuna and dorado on my last few trips” He describes that the best location for excellent fishing grounds is finding floating logs, current lines, debris, and anywhere small fish are concentrated. Anglers have reported to catch up to 10 marlins, about 15 mahi mahi, and several yellow fin tunas per day. He says that the tuna has been steady this year where most days you are able to catch several of them; making a great year for tunas.
Expectations for July
Captain Dana predicts that the mahi mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado, will be filling in. With an increase on mahi and yellow fin tuna, the marlin are expected to follow, increasing the number of catch and release for blue and stripe marlin as well.

Capitan Michael Alligood reported catching 5 small yellowfin tuna, lots of grouper and a couple nice silky snappers just 300-400 feet offshore
Captain Dana Thomas from HOO’S YOUR DADDY did some inshore fishing, and in just a half- day, caught snapper rooster and some grouper
HOO’S YOUR DADDY released 6 roosters including the honeymooner’s double header, in a half day of inshore fishing. They also saw lots of whales migrating, which was exciting.
