From its smorgasbord of fish species both big and small to its variety of fishable waters for charter fishing (lakes, rivers, and the oceans on both the east and west coasts), Costa Rica is a sports fishing paradise.

But those fisherman who don’t live year-round in the tropical climate may have a more difficult time snagging that big catch, depending on the time of year. Different fish populations see their peaks during different seasons. According to an article from the Costa Rican Times, the season you choose for your trip will heavily affect your catch. So a little foresight and planning ahead can help sportsmen make the most of each and every expedition.
Here’s a list of the most common catches and the optimal times to hook them:
·      Dorado, yellowfin tuna and wahoo: Year round.
·      Snapper: July through December.
·      Roosterfish: July to September.
·      Black marlin: October to December.
·      Blue marlin: April to June.
·      Sailfish: December to May.
