Yellowfin Tuna

Yellowfin tuna Yellowfin Tuna are found close inshore, in clean warm currents, but are more common on the Continental Shelf areas. They prefer clean water with water temperatures of 65-80F. They rarely venture into dirty, discolored areas. Yellowfin feed both on the surface, and well down in the water column. Yellowfin is a very good eating fish.It is extremely good as sashimi (raw fish). Small yellowfin (5-30lbs) will take trolled and cast lures, small live baits and sometimes freely drifted pilchards or cut flesh strips. We usually catch these tuna by trolling X-rap Rapalas or feather skirted jigs


Blackfin Tuna

Blackfin Tuna

Blackfin tuna is the smallest tuna species in the Thunnus genus, generally growing to a maximum of (39in) in length and weighing (4-6 lb). Blackfin have oval shaped bodies, black backs with a slight yellow on the finlets, and have yellow on the sides of their body. Blackfin are only found in the western Atlantic from Cape Cod to Brazil.

They are a short-lived, fast-growing species; a 5 year old fish would be considered old. Blackfin tuna are a warmer-water fish, preferring water temperatures over 68°F (20°C). What they lack in size, they make up for in numbers and willingness to bite. The Blackfin Tuna is excellent served as sashimi (raw) or pan seared. We usually catch these tuna by trolling X-rap Rapalas or feather skirted jigs

Wahoo

Wahoo

Wahoo The flesh of the wahoo is white, delicate, and highly regarded by many gourmets; indeed the Hawai'ian name for the fish, Ono, is also the Hawai'ian word for "tasty" or "delicious". In many areas of the Caribbean, local demand for wahoo is met by local commercial fishermen, who take them primarily by trolling, as well as by recreational sports fishermen who sell their catch.In most parts of its range, the wahoo is a highly prized catch. It reaches a good size, is often available not too far from land, and is a very good fighter on light to medium tackle. It is known in sports fishing circles for the speed and strength of its first run. The aggressive habits and razor-sharp teeth of the wahoo can however be of considerable annoyance when targeting larger gamefish

King Mackeral are a medium sized fish, typically encountered from 5 to 30 pounds, but is known to exceed 90 pounds. The entire body is covered with very small, hardly visible, loosely attached scales.Common in the coastal zone from North Carolina to Brazil and it occurs as far south as Rio de Janeiro and occasionally as far north as the Gulf of Maine. Nonetheless, a preference for water temperatures in the range of 68 to 85°F (20 to 29°C). may limit distribution.King mackerel are voracious, opportunistic carnivores. Their prey depends on their size. We typically catch King Mackerel with live bait on various banks. But we have also caught them on Rapalas and feather jigs trolling.

Groupers

Groupers

Groupers typically having a stout body and a large mouth. They are not built for long-distance fast swimming. They can be quite large, and lengths over a meter and weights up to 100kg are not uncommon, though obviously in such a large group species vary considerably. They swallow prey rather than biting pieces off it.

In September 2010, a Costa Rican newspaper reported a 2.3-meter (7.5 feet) grouper in Cieneguita, Limon. The weight of the fish was 250kg and it was lured using one kilogram of bait. We typically catch grouper in the 3-8 pound range using live bait or cut bait..Excellent eating fish for pan frying, ceviche, or on the grill
