Fishing is good here in San Juan del Sur with Dorado, Sailfish, Black Marlin, Yellow fin Tuna, Rooster Fish, Jack Crevelle, and Mackerel as the usual catch, depending on the season.
Our prime fishing season runs from April through November
with inshore and offshore catches. And you can target Dorado, Sailfish, Rooster fish and Mackerel.
In the off season you can fish inshore and target Jack Crevelle and both Black and White Tuna.
In the early mornings you will see the pangas heading out and coming in with fresh fish for the fish market.
So, why not join them with a fishing trip and catch some fresh fish for dinner!
San Juan del Sur has two fishing tournament every year.
Our local panga tournament is the second weekend of November
and we have another tournament the last weekend in June
with more of the large sports fishers competing.
