Ocotal Sportfishing
For blue marlin, our waters are considered some of the finest in the world. Seen year round, most catches are made during December, January, February, March and April. The rare striped marlin is also occasionally caught in our waters.

The fertile fishing grounds of the Gulf of Papagayo provide year round action for approximately 25 varieties of sport fish. Although most famous for its sail fishing from April through September, these same waters produce great marling catches almost every month of the year.

Sails are caught year round averaging 1 to 2 sails raised per day from October through March. Boat crews are experienced to assist light tackle and fly fishermen challenge these 100 pound plus fish.

Apart from billfish, probably the most sought after prey for the sport fishermen is the roosterfish. More trophy-size roosters are taken from waters around Ocotal than any place in the world. Taken on live bait, 40 to 60 pound roosters, taken with certainty all year round.
