Subject: Use A Light Fishing Rod In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 29, 2014 at 06:50AM by Lee Byard) Tags:

light fishing rod los suenos costa ricaA light rod is a forgotten rod.

This is the sad truth of fishing in Los Suenos. Anglers dismiss the slim shapes and composite materials, certain that soft action reels won’t survive a charter trip.

What many sportsmen fail to realize, however, is that light rods (which rank above ultralight options and feature four-to-eight pound lures) offer distinct advantages in Costa Rica.

A light rod boasts superior flexibility. Its carefully crafted design allows it to move with the currents, as well as endure battles against larger inshore breeds. It also features a gentler action, ensuring that bait remains on the hook. Losing expensive Mackerels, Minnows and Shrimps is no longer a concern. Its balanced weight completes the effect, promoting smooth reel-ins.

The light rod is a valuable asset on any inshore fishing trip. Consider using it while in Los Suenos.

los suenos fishing rodThe ultralight fishing rod is often dismissed. Los Suenos anglers think it to be too delicate and too thin. Its shorter lines and reduced lure weights seem counterintuitive for Costa Rica, and it’s often left behind on charter tours.

This is a mistake.

The ultralight fishing rod has a place among Los Suenos’ many reefs. Those who prefer inshore charters will find it to be extremely useful.

The ultralight rod - due to its hollowed materials and parabolic shape - has exceptional sensitivity. It will respond immediately to the presence of a fish, and its quick-spinning reel proves essential. This option also features an extended line reach, with lightly weighted lures casting more efficiently against the current. This provides anglers with a greater range of depth and helps them to find the more elusive Los Suenos breeds.

Using an ultralight rod in Costa Rica is strongly recommended for any inshore expedition. Don’t be fooled by the diminutive size. This tool can snag reef-hiders and rock-dwellers with ease.

white marling fishing los suenos costa ricaCatching a White Marlin in Los Suenos is often more a matter of luck than skill. These creatures are rare and few anglers have ever been able to reel one in.

Costa Rica Fishing Adventures, however, believes in being prepared for anything. We offer these baiting suggestions for those who want to seek the White Marlin, even if the chances of catching one sometimes border on the impossible.

Live Bait

The White Marlin is noted for fickleness. Certain baits simply do not appeal and many anglers have wasted their dollars on expensive Squids, Crabs and Spanish Mackerels. It’s best to rely on simple flavors, like Ballyhoos or Skipjacks. These have the right coloring and movement to appeal.

Artificial Bait

The White Marlin prefers live bait. It will, however, attack artificial options if they prove distracting enough. Choose surface poppers and dredgers for the best results.

Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Roosterfish In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 24, 2014 at 06:20AM by Lee Byard) Tags:

roosterfish fishing los suenos costa ricaLos Suenos plays hosts to countless marine creatures, but few are as unusual as the Roosterfish. This breed is silver-scaled and large, with a spiny-plume rising along its back and cutting through the water. It’s an inshore predator that’s as tasty to eat as it is challenging to catch.

Costa Rica Fishing Adventures recommends choosing the right bait, therefore, while hunting it.

Live Bait

The Roosterfish will feast on most small creatures, showing few preferences toward flavor or blood trails. For the best results, however, choose options like Skipjacks and Lady Fish. These tend to move well on the lines and will attract attention.

Artificial Bait

The Roosterfish doesn’t respond strongly to artificial bait. Those forced to use it, though, should choose surface poppers and feathered circle hooks. These will draw the breed out and keep it interested.

Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Horse Eye Trevallys In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 24, 2014 at 06:08AM by Lee Byard) Tags:

horse eye trevally fishing los suenos costa ricaThe Horse Eye Trevally is an unmistakable breed. Its compressed body, exposed teeth and namesake eyes - which are large and rounded, with transparent lids creating a milky coloring - mark it as unique. It’s often sought by inshore anglers and is noted as one of Los Suenos’ more popular catch-and-release options.

Before setting sail to find it, however, fishermen should find the perfect bait.

Live Bait

The Horse Eye Trevally is a cautious breed. It approaches its prey slowly, attacking only when it feels safe and often fleeing at the first sign of trouble. Choose small baiting options, such as Shrimps or Sardines, to draw it out and keep it from panicking.

Artificial Bait

The Horse Eye Trevally will respond to artificial bait, as long as it seems innocuous. Choose bibbed lures and soft-skirted jigs to catch this fish’s attention. Be wary of items that move too quickly or make too much noise.

striped marlin fishing los suenos costa ricaAnglers craving deep-sea battles often seek out Striped Marlins. These massive fish boast superior strength and indomitable wills, and reeling them always proves exciting. They will fight against the line every time.

Luring them to the boat, however, should not be a challenge. It should instead be easy and this is achieved with the right bait.

Live Bait

The Striped Marlin is a premier predator, willing to hunt anything that crosses its path. Choose highly flavorful options, like Mackerels and Squids, to catch its attention and draw it close to the boat.

Artificial Bait

The Striped Marlin responds best to fresh bait. Anglers using rubber-skirted lures and trolling lures, however, can catch one. Be sure that these options are brightly colored, with possible mirror or feather embellishments to increase interest.

Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Permits In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 20, 2014 at 07:49AM by Lee Byard) Tags:

permit fishing los suenos costa ricaInshore anglers are well-acquainted with Permits. These slim-boned fish hide along the shelves, using their forked tails to burrow beneath the sand and salt. They’re difficult to catch, retreating often at the first signs of danger and refusing to come to the surface.

Having the right bait, therefore, is essential. Costa Rica Fishing Adventures recommends these options.

Live Bait

Permits are cautious. They will only attack fish smaller than themselves and they’ll wait for the perfect moment to pounce. Choose oily options, like Shrimps and Crabs, to draw them out and keep them interested.

Artificial Bait

Permits don’t respond well to artificial bait. Those using barrel swivels and slip sinkers can catch these fish, though, if the items are boldly colored and have sharp movements. Light spinning tackle is recommended.

Location

Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Black Marlins In Los Suenos

black marlin fishing los suenos costa ricaThe Black Marlin is a prize for any angler. Its speed, strength and aggression make it a challenge to catch, and trying to reel one in can demand countless hours and endless patience.

It also requires the right bait. Costa Rica Fishing Adventures suggests using these options.

Live Bait

The Black Marlin, like most breeds, responds best to live bait. Its powerful bite, however, can turn solid foods into chum, scattering them across the sea. Use sturdy breeds like Squids or Skipjacks. These will last longer and will keep Marlins centered near the ship.

Artificial Bait

The Black Marlin prefers fresh fish. Artificial options will suffice, however, when necessary and can be used to great effect while trolling. Choose large-skirted lures and hybrid skooners for best results, and be certain that these are attached to durable monofilaments.

Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Snooks In Los Suenos

snook fishing los suenos costa ricaThe Snook is an unforgettable breed. Its tapered head, lean body and striped scales make it easy to spot and fun to catch. It often serves as an introduction to fishing in Los Suenos, and first-time anglers are never disappointed when they reel one in.

Before casting any line, however, the proper bait must be chosen.

Live Bait

The Snook prefers to hunt fish smaller than itself. Choosing Shrimp, Sardines, Pilchards and similar breeds will yield the best results. Fresh bait is always preferable but frozen Mullets will also suffice.

Artificial Bait

The Snook responds to color and movement. Choose bucktail jigs, spoons and mirror plugs to catch its attention. Be certain that these all feature sturdy constructions since this fish will attack them vigorously.

Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Blue Fish In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 17, 2014 at 07:51AM by Lee Byard) Tags:

bluefish fishing los suenos costa ricaThe Blue Fish is among Los Suenos’ most common predators. Large schools skulk along the surface, creating feeding frenzies and disturbing the currents. These creatures are compact but fierce, with sharp teeth and strong jaws. This can make them a challenge to catch.

Choosing the wrong bait, however, can turn that challenge into an impossibility. Costa Rica Fishing Adventures recommends finding the best options available.

Live Bait

The Blue Fish has a strong hunting drive. It will attack creatures smaller than itself (even its own young) and will relentlessly chase them through rocks, reefs and shelves. Choose highly flavorful options, therefore, to keep these fish centered near the ship. Squids, Minnows and Shrimp are ideal.

Artificial Bait

The Blue Fish will blitz any bait it sees. Sturdy artificial options, like steel leaders and sea-strikers, are recommended to survive its knife-like teeth.
