Subject: Keep Bait In Top Form While Fishing In Los Suenos
(Posted on Jan 11, 2014 at 01:06PM by Lee Byard)

live bait in los suenos costa ricaLive bait is successful bait.

Sport fishermen trying to chase Marlins, Mackerels and more understand the importance of live bait. It tempts even the most elusive fish, leading them away from their hiding spots and onto a hook.

Trying to keep bait in top form while on a Los Suenos charter ship, however, can prove difficult without the proper conditions.

Be certain to use wells with good circulation while fishing in Los Suenos, keeping the bait breathing normally and responsive. Rely on cold water instead of warm since it conducts oxygen more efficiently, and monitor temperatures carefully throughout the trip. Heat is to be combatted immediately. 

If a non-circulating system is all that’s available remember to clean the well every few hours, replacing the water and removing any excess film along the top. This will compensate for the aeration and keep bait primed for spooling.

Sport fishing requires more than rods and reels. Live bait is instead needed to secure the perfect catch every season. Keep it healthy and hearty until it's time to cast.

Subject: Releasing Fish Correctly While In Los Suenos
(Posted on Jan 10, 2014 at 09:52AM by Lee Byard)

catch and release fishing los suenos costa ricaLos Suenos embraces a catch and release philosophy. Endangered creatures - such as the Blue Marlin, the Sailfish or the Striped Marlin - are always returned to the ocean, helping to stabilize migration and reinforce breeding.

An angler unfamiliar with this kind of sport fishing, however, may make a critical mistake when trying to release a fish back into the wild: he may simply toss it back without verifying whether it's properly moving.

While fishing in Los Suenos be certain to monitor every fish’s condition. When one is set into the water, watch the way it responds to the currents. See if it instantly begins to swim or instead remains dormant. If it appears lethargic or slow keep it on the line and gently rock it back and forth. This will wake its respiration system and encourage normal bodily functions.

Refusing to do this will cause great harm and potentially result in a fish's death. It will be too stunned to swim and will instead just sink to the ocean floor. This defeats the purpose of catch and release fishing and must be avoided.

Subject: Rely On Familiar Reels, Rods and Lines While Fishing In Los Suenos
(Posted on Jan 9, 2014 at 10:50AM by Lee Byard)

los suenos costa ricaAnglers are faced with endless tackle options. Every season seems to offer new reels or filaments - and they’ll soon gather supporters, detractors and curious bystanders. The possibilities are limitless and the equipment seems ideal.

Those planning a Los Suenos fishing trip, however, shouldn’t get swept away by the deep sea market. They should instead rely on familiar equipment.

When fishing in Los Suenos anglers should trust their own rods and lines. Don’t try to purchase new tackle, wanting to sample the latest innovations and options. These items can prove difficult to use while on a charter ship and can hinder casting strides or pumping.

Choose equipment that has already been tested and, more importantly, mastered.

Sport fishing in Los Suenos is undeniably exciting. Trying to learn the mechanics of new tackle, however, can dampen any day. Understand how every item works and focus on maintaining proper stances and spooling.

Subject: The Disadvantages Of Using Wire Leaders In Los Suenos
(Posted on Jan 8, 2014 at 07:29AM by Lee Byard)

wire leader los suenos fishingA wire leader is often praised for its strength and durability.

Those fishing in Los Suenos, however, will have few praises to share. Instead they’ll find themselves cursing their equipment choices and wishing for filaments or cables.

Wire leaders are often used for salt water fishing. They feature many advantages and have - rightfully and fairly - earned a place in any tackle-box. Their distinct designs, however, make them poor choices for Los Suenos fishing tours.

Sharp Edges

Wire leaders feature sharp, brittle edges. If improperly handled these can cause damage to an angler’s hands and wrists. Cuts are common, and these boast greater chances of infection in Pacific conditions.

Frequent Twisting

Wire leaders tend to twist and turn, which makes them useless in Los Suenos. The strong currents and rocky seabeds will cause severe kinking - and this instantly impacts casting, spooling and backlashing.

Fish Preferences

Wire leaders are often ignored by the fish in Los Suenos. Groupers, Mackerels and Yellow Fins prefer softer monofilaments and will sometimes refuse to bite anything else. Days can pass without even the hint of a catch.

Anglers visiting Los Suenos should avoid wire leaders whenever possible. Use other tackle options instead to ensure more successful sport fishing expeditions.

Subject: Lubricate Reels While Fishing In Los Suenos
(Posted on Jan 7, 2014 at 07:37AM by Lee Byard)

los suenos costa rica fishingLos Suenos is famed for its deep waters and salty shores, traits that breed ample marine life and steady migration patterns.

They’re also traits that wreak havoc on reels - especially those that haven’t been properly lubricated.

When planning a sport fishing trip to Los Suenos anglers must think of more than rods, lures and tackle options. They must instead note the condition of their reels and decide whether lubrication is needed.

Always lubricate new reels. Critical areas may have been overlooked during factory production, rendering them unusable for Los Suenos.

Always lubricate old reels at the start and end of a fishing season. This will help to lessen the effects of salt water and age.

Always lubricate reels with level-wind gears throughout the year. These items need more grease to function properly, especially when handling fish in Los Suenos.

Always monitor the appearance and strength of reels during any Los Suenos fishing trip. Have well-oiled alternatives prepared in case normal tackle fails.
Remember these suggestions while on a sport fishing expedition or family vacation. Keep reels lubricated and properly maintained.

Subject: Remember These Lure Tips While Fishing In Los Suenos
(Posted on Jan 6, 2014 at 11:26AM by Lee Byard)

los suenos fishingFew items sway the success of anglers more than the lure.

This carefully designed attachment utilizes color, movement and vibration to tempt even the most fickle fish. It’s an essential part of every deep sea routine, and its many shapes - from the jig to plug, the spinner to the popper - allow it to effortlessly adapt to saltwater sports. It’s important.

It also, however, requires a few basic strategies to work, and anglers should note these before attempting to fish in Los Suenos:

Rely On Bright Colors

Costa Rica’s fish are drawn to bright colors and bold attachments. Choose lures, therefore, that shine in even the deepest waters. Seek out intense yellows, greens and reds. These options most resemble prey and will attract local predators.

Buy New Tackle

Lures have limited appeal. Salt water quickly strips them of their color and shine. It’s recommended, therefore, to purchase new options before attempting to sport fish in Los Suenos. Don’t rely on equipment that’s less than pristine. 

Use Freshwater Rinses

Fishing in Los Suenos exposes anglers to endless opportunities. It also, however, introduces them to corrosive salt and silt. Be certain to rinse lures in fresh water, therefore, to undo the damage of deep sea tours. Do this after every trip.

Remember these suggestions while in Los Suenos. Contact Costa Rica Fishing Adventures to learn more about lures. Ask us also about our charter tours, accommodations and special promotions.
Subject: Using Gel Braid Lines While Fishing In Los Suenos
(Posted on Dec 31, 2013 at 08:14AM by Lee Byard)

los suenos costa rica fishingA monofilament line is commonly used and universally praised. Its versatility and durability makes it a favorite of all anglers.

Those traveling to Los Suenos, however, may find themselves in need of an alternative - especially as Black Marlins, Sailfish and other large predators arrive to the coast. A gel braid may instead prove better suited to the high tides and steady currents.

A gel braid is a polyethylene infused line, carefully spun and thinly shaped. Its noted for its lightweight design, and it’s an ideal option for fishing in Los Suenos.


Gel braids are responsive, allowing them to better translate vibrations. This is essential for sport fishing in Los Suenos, where some creatures are found in deep water and can prove difficult to see.

Less Resistance

Gel braids are small in diameter and extremely lightweight. This allows them to sink quickly, even when attached to buoyant jigs, and also ensures that they move with the current.


Gel braids are noted for their power. These lines can easily adapt to weighted lures and swivels, options that are necessary when fishing in Los Suenos.

Consider using gel braid cables while in the Central Pacific. They’ll serve as perfect complements to any deep sea tour.

Subject: Monitor Monofilaments While Fishing In Los Suenos
(Posted on Dec 28, 2013 at 07:25AM by Lee Byard)

los suenos costa rica fishingA broken line is a useless line.

This is a truth all anglers are familiar with. Many a sport fishing trip has been ruined by the sudden snap of a line, the loss of a lure. Trying to chase down Striped Marlins and Dorados becomes impossible when monofilaments fail.

Costa Rica Fishing Adventures understands this, which is why we now offer some suggestions to protect those lines during every charter tour.

Change The Monofilament

With time all lines fade, turning coarse and brittle. This will cause them to break. Change every monofilament, therefore, at the first sign of weakening. Casual fishermen tend to do this twice a year, while experienced anglers may swap their lines every few months. It varies by the type of fishing and the general wear.

Cut Away Sections

Should a monofilament seem unsteady - but there is no replacement is available - cut away the rough section and re-tie the leader. This will shorten the line considerably, but it will also ensure that it doesn't break during a fishing trip.

Stay Away From The Sun

Los Suenos is a region defined by sunlight. This is excellent for travelers but troubling for fishing lines. Monofilaments can be damaged by excessive heat. Store them in shaded areas, therefore, between bouts to avoid breakage.

Use these suggestions while fishing in Los Suenos to ensure tight lines and strong hauls.

los suenos costa rica fishingSalt water hosts far more than Snooks and Dorados. It instead houses corrosive electrons, which move through the waves and attach themselves to any object that passes by - such as a reel.

When fishing in Los Suenos anglers must be aware of the potentially damaging - and costly - effects of salt water. Extended exposure to the Pacific can cause reels to rust. Lines will snap and interior corners will peel. This will render the items unusable.

Protecting reels while in Costa Rica is essential, therefore.

Be certain - after every sport fishing trip or family charter cruise - to soak all reels in fresh water. Fill a bucket at the Los Suenos resort and submerge tackle equipment in it fully for at least two hours. This will wash away the salt and eliminate concerns of rusting. Dry the reels thoroughly afterwards and store them in a clean environment.

Fishing in Los Suenos is undeniably exciting. It can also, however, be undeniably frustrating if reels fail. Soak them to avoid this problem.

los suenos costa rica fishingEvery fishing line needs the perfect fishing knot. Trying to decipher the endless overhands, loops and noose arrangements, however, can prove impossible. There are many options to consider, and all seem to have their supporters.

Costa Rica Fishing Adventures has a suggestion, though, for those traveling to Los Suenos: use the uni knot.

The uni knot is a multi-functional knot. It features a six turn shape, with anglers creating a tight braid from the line to the reel arbor. It’s known for its efficient design, and those sailing along the Los Suenos region will find it perfect for both deep sea and near shore fishing.


The uni knot’s practical design allows it to adapt to all monofilament lines, as well as most snaps and swivels. It is the most common choice for sport fishing in the Central Pacific.


Due to the uni knot’s unique arrangement - which includes triple passes and multiple overhands - it offers exceptional strength. This makes it ideal for Los Suenos, where powerful fish are found throughout the year.


The uni knot is famed for its simplicity. Even the most inexperienced anglers can quickly master this option, and it’s a favorite on family vacations and charter cruises alike.

Rely on the uni knot for any fishing excursion. It will offer the necessary support needed to hook Marlins, Mackerels and more.
