There are two seasons in Tamarindo…dry season and rainy season. Dry season begins in December and lasts into May. Winds can be strong January, February and March but calm water lies a short run time to the south. This can be our best season for Marlin.
Rainy season usually begins mid-May and we enjoy sunny mornings followed by an afternoon shower most days through August. Rain can be heavier and more frequent in September and October but fishing remains strong and many people enjoy this quieter ” green season”.
Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Dorado and many other species can be caught year round, however mid-May through mid-August is best as far as numbers of sailfish go. Marlin fishing peaks from November through March.
March and April are good variety months for Billfish, Tuna and Reef Fish, as is the period from November to December. Other species frequently taken include Rooster fish, Amberjack, Wahoo and Rainbow Runner.
A four acre reef just a few miles off the beach, which rises to within a hundred feet of the surface, is home to big Cubera Snapper, Grouper and other Reef Fish. A 20 minute run time puts you out at the continental shelf where you can start trolling for Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, Sailfish, Bigeye and Yellow fin Tuna, Wahoo and Dorado.
