The challenge and excitement of some of the world’s best big game fishing awaits you at Aguila de Osa Inn. Over 40 International Game Fish Association (I.G.F.A.) records have been set within 80 nautical miles from our hotel, with catches including Sailfish, Black, Blue, and Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Cubera Snapper, Spanish and Sierra Mackerel, Roosterfish and more. Aguila itself holds four world-fishing records. The Aguila de Osa Inn has the reputation of being a fisherman’s paradise.
Our Palm Beach 31-foot cold-molded sport fishing boats are powered by Caterpillar 3116 turbo diesels. We carry a full range of Penn International and Shimano reels in all weight classes. We also accommodate fly fisherman, but ask that you bring your own equipment. If you have any questions about what equipment to bring, please do not hesitate to contact our office. Our professional captains (all English speaking) and crew are anxious to be part of your record-breaking sport fishing vacation.
Aguila’s professionally trained mechanics constantly maintain our boats to the highest possible standards for your safety and enjoyment. Our boats meet all the U.S. Coast Guard safety regulations with lifejackets, flares, GPS, and VHF radios. In addition, we are equipped with a special frequency that enables us to reach a far greater distance than the normal marine radios in case of an emergency.
Thrilled by spectacular runs of big game fish, guests can take advantage of our 1/2 day or full day fishing charters. Aguila de Osa Inn practices responsible catch and release fishing techniques and is the oldest operation in the area to use circle hooks.
Marlin – December through April is peak season, but an occasional blue or black may be taken any month if the water temperature is right. This year, the marlin activity was incredible between February and March, with some weighing in at over 600 pounds.
Sailfish – a few may be taken off and on year-round with the exceptional fishing from December through April. Often slows from May into early June, then picks up again and begins to peak in August or September.
Yellow Fin Tuna – best fishing for the bigger ones corresponds with marlin and sailfish season, but the schools of footballs can nearly always be found around Cano Island and farther outside.
Dorado – best runs are traditionally from late May through December.
Wahoo – not abundant, but an occasional Wahoo may be taken any time. Can be caught between May and October while trolling for sailfish.
Roosterfish – the region has big roosters and they can be caught virtually any month of the year. Some weigh nearly 100 pounds but they average between 6 – 30 pounds.
Snook – almost all year round, but best from May through August and January through March fishing for Snook is best from on shore in the river or on the beach close by the hotel bring a small rod and with a small white lead weight with white feathers work best.
Other Species – the Horse-eye Jacks, Jack Crevalle, Amber Jack, Spanish mackerel, Cubera Snapper, and Mutton Snapper are here year round.
