Conservation Fishing In Costa Rica

At Epic Fishing Costa Rica, we encourage and support conservation and wise, sustainable use of our marine resources. Costa Rica law mandates the use of circle hooks on any bait intended for billfish (sailfish and marlin). J hooks may be used on baitless lures, and baits not intended for billfish, but we find circle hooks generally work better than J hook even when bait fishing for tunas, dorado, and snapper and grouper.

All billfish and roosterfish are catch and release only, as to protect this resource for future generations to enjoy. If you wish to have a mount made, our crew will carefully measure and photograph your catch so an accurate mount can be made of your trophy catch. We work with Gray’s taxidermy, the leader in marine taxidermy and mounts.
