Subject: Find Marlin In Costa Rica
(Posted on May 1, 2013 at 05:58AM by Lee Byard)

Simple is sometimes best.

This is a common phrase, but too often is it ignored--especially within the world of angling. Fishermen develop countless strategies, infusing every thought with lures, reels and live bait. Their sport of choice demands much time and even more energy.... especially when the prize is a Marlin

Such a prize isn’t often won through difficult tactics, however. Instead Costa Rican charter services recognize a more straightforward approach.

They follow the birds.

Marlins are predators. These fearsome fish--which can exceed 14 feet and 400 pounds--dominate the Pacific Ocean, especially along the Costa Rican shore. They are forever chasing warm currents, migrating with the many schools of fish found off of Los Suenos. Mackerel, Tuna and even squids prove tempting for this breed, and they use their spears to capture them.

Due to the ocean’s ever-moving surface, it’s a challenge to find Marlin. Looking to the sky, however, yields far greater rewards.

The many birds of Costa Rica will target the same schools that Marlin do. They’ll track them down, diving into the waves to feast. Sailing toward a flock of gulls or terns, therefore, is often the best form of fishing (especially when combined with trolling or trawling techniques). They act as a beacon and, when followed, they offer a promise of success.

Complicated plans and equipment aren’t needed. Costa Rican charter services instead understand the relationship between Marlins and birds.

And this makes every trip far more exciting.
