Subject: What Is The Difference Between Fishing Poles And Rods?

fishing los suenosEvery sport has its great debates. Is football won with offense or defense? Is the designated hitter rule a liability? Which basketball league reigns supreme?

Fishing isn’t exempt from this clash of opinions. Los Suenos anglers instead argue over key terminology - is it a fishing pole or a fishing rod?

The answer is easy to find.

According to the Fishing Loft, poles and rods are two separate entities, defined by their materials. Poles are recognized for their natural elements. They’re often shaped by cane, reed, bamboo or similar woods, making them flexible and lightweight. Rods, however, are manmade composites, blending kevlar, boron, fiberglass or graphite. This offers them greater durability and easier mounting.

Poles and rods are not interchangeable. Their constructions and tensile strengths instead differ - due both to their materials and their designs. It’s important to remember this when chartering ships along Los Suenos. Request the proper tackle equipment and don’t swap one option for the other.

Subject: What Is Terminal Tackle?

fishing los suenosAn angler is only as successful as his equipment. This is the unfortunate truth of fishing in Costa Rica. Strong Pacific waves, sudden storms and endless continental shelves challenge even the most experienced sportsman.

Trying to combat the elements isn’t easy and, without the proper tackle, it’s impossible.

When sailing along the coast of Los Suenos be prepared with the right terminal tackle.

What is terminal tackle? This term defines the angling equipment that’s attached to casting or trolling lines. It includes circle hooks, sinkers, swivels, lures, wire leaders and more. It also encompasses live bait, such as the popular minnows or mackerels. No angler can succeed without using this tackle correctly in the Central Pacific.

Knowledge, therefore, is power - so question charter services about their terminal options. Be aware that there are countless fish in Los Suenos and all have unique requirements. Different items and strategies will be needed every day.
