Quepos Inshore/Nearshore Fishing

Quepos is home of the roosterfish which is on many anglers bucketlist. Roosterfish get their name from their comb that extends above their head similar to a rooster. These fish get fairly large and are formidable fighters when hooked up. While trolling the nearshore waters you will also have the chance to catch small yellowfin tuna, mackerel, and kingfish. If fishing with bait and lures then you can find snook close to shore and snapper a little further out. All of these fish make for a great day of fishing and with jungle, beaches, and ocean all insight, it's hard to imagine a better place to wet a line.
