Game Fish Commonly Caught In Flamingo, Costa Rica

The waters of Flamingo and the Gold Coast in Guanacaste are teaming with every kind of sea creature. From whales to crabs to eels to manta rays, these waters are abundant with marine life.

This, of course, means great sport fishing and the following is a list of the most commonly caught fish in these waters. But before we dive into all the possible fish types you could find while sport fishing with the Flamingo team, we’d like to make a note about protected fish. These special beasts are what makes this such a fun activity, and so we take care to follow the law and it’s spirit.

That means catching them in a way that we’re sure to be able to release them. Specifically, we only use circle hooks and no double hooks. We take our responsibility to protect the population very seriously.
