Get ready for Costa Rica’s world-class billfish bite in 2020

Pretty well everyone knows about Costa Rica’s world-class billfish bite. From December through April, the waters off Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast teem with billfish. Anglers from the four corners of the globe come to Los Sueños Marina and Pez Vela Marina to catch sailfish and marlin.

In addition, these two popular marinas host some of the world’s most prestigious billfish tournaments during this period. The acclaimed Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown and the Offshore World Championship at Quepos are just two of many.

One can also add the Pescadora Championship at Pez Vela, a new but increasingly popular billfish tournament for women anglers only.

Getting ready for the 2020 billfish season

In anticipation of the upcoming billfish season, many boats like the ones below find themselves out of the water for major overhauls. Captains, mates and skilled crews are scraping and painting hulls. Marine mechanics are also rebuilding and fine-tuning skittish, ornery inboard diesels. In addition, marine electricians are examining and repairing  every inch of sportfishing yachts’ intricate and delicate electrical systems.

The above boats constitute just three of many. Furthermore, salons and cabins are being modernized. Owners and captains are also replenishing their fishing gear with new rods and reels. Most likely, many boats will have new GPS, fish finders and UHF radios this season.

All this work is being done so that you can catch fish.
