Subject: The Disadvantages Of Using Wire Leaders In Los Suenos

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.

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.

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.

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.
