The ‘Big 5’ video showcases the main species that we catch offshore fishing in Costa Rica, Panama, and Guatemala – wahoo, dorado, yellow-fin tuna, sailfish, and marlin. We came up with the ‘Big 5’ idea having been to African game parks and hearing all about their big five (lion, leopard, water buffalo, rhino, and elephant). We get asked quite a bit what you can catch offshore fishing so we decided to make this video to give our clients a taste of the action.
There are so many great things that attract anglers to come sport fish Central American hot spots like Costa Rica, Panama, and Guatemala. The weather is always warm, the seas are typically very calm and flat, and the game fish are plentiful year round. We catch dorado and wahoo 12 months a year, huge schools of yellow-fin tuna can be encountered between March to August, and the billfish bite for sailfish and marlin is always hot. No matter what your target species is we can put you in the right spot and on the right boat to maximize your chances.
