March and April are great months for offshore fishing at Costa Rica’s Crocodile Bay Resort. During the time we spent there most recently, folks were hooking up as many as fifteen sailfish per day.
This year, BigWater Adventures decided to do something a little different, and it paid off big time!
The Pargo Seda can be found in the eastern Pacific, ranging from Mexico to Peru. Adults are generally caught in open water over sandy or hard bottom at depths of at least 240 feet. Pargo Seda can grow to lengths of 37 inches. Their diet consists of crustaceans, bony fish, octopus, cuttlefish, or squid. The Pargo Sera has a high commercial value in Latin America because of the excellent quality of its meat.
Fishing Director Todd Staley and Captain Germain recommended we go deep-dropping for ground fish. We never expected to be as busy on this shoot as we were there two days we went fishing.
It was a species-first for both Mark Davis and BigWater Adventures.
The lure that made it all happen was Yo-Zuri’s prototype butterfly jig, which imitated a squid and was like candy to the Pargo Seda.
Crocodile Bay Resort is an award-winning sportfishing destination celebrating their 17th season when this show was filmed.
BigWater Adventures has made this a go-to location because the opportunities for success are endless.
Besides presenting some of the best fishing in the world, including inshore, offshore, kayak fishing, and surfcasting, Crocodile Bay offers custom vacation packages the whole family can enjoy.
No other resort offers such a complete range of adventures both on the ocean and in the rainforest.
You may come for the fishing, but you’ll stay for the opportunity to stand with Mother Nature and share in all the virtues of this incomparable locale.
