Most Pacific Central American Marlin hotspots are well known by traveling billfishermen.The drop, off El Salvador.The rock,off Suenos.Zane Grey Reef,Pinas Bay Panama.And of course the infamous HANNIBAL BANK Pan. to name a few.However this locale just a few miles from the Panama border in CR is rarely exploited.Not on any chart this spot pioneered by Marlin Legend Capt.Tom Lynskey of Golfito via Miami is off the radar.Under threat of dismemberment I can’t divulge the numbers,but if heading east and you have Burica Island about 4 miles dead ahead,your close.The huge visible rocky area on the CR side of the island(it’s a grey area which side of the border your on) holds big virgin Roosters. The seamount gave up a 100 inch class blue here march 09 on standup for Inta on Thumper with Capt.Tom on the wire. J.W.and Pat Bones of Port Aransas,Texas/GOLFITO took a grander here new years eve 07.I sneak in here reguarly and it rarely disappoints.The 512 foot deep Volcano near the 1000 fathom line drives upwelling and visible current lines with tons of bait in residence. A good recorder will pick it up(Deep drop freaks will find black grouper the second they hit bottom).Mostly Blues with an occasional Black the rig here is bait and switch @ 8 knots. Aggressive Pacific sails are thick mostly to the north side of the structure and will enthusiastically come to the teasers.The drop off Punta Burica is rumored to be the spot for swords however the prevailing current will drift you into Panama so if you don’t want an Whiskey Tango Foxtrot moment get your butt back over the border before dawn.It’s 41 miles from Golfito so a doable day trip.This post will self destruct in 15 seconds…..
