Fishing Reports on May 2008

This is the transition month between dry season and rainy season. Some showers in the shore but lot of rain in middle of the country, fishing change, species like wahoo start to bait, mahi and sail are more hungry, so we hope more catch in gulf of Papagayo and Tamarindo fishing region. However, this is a low tourism month, so no much charters depart from gulf of Papagayo hotels nor Tamarindo beach.
