los suenos fishing, charter fishing costa ricaCosta Rica is host to some of the globe’s top sports fishing tournaments. The best of the best descend on the Central American country to flex their fishing muscles and show off their ability to snag the biggest catch.

But for sports fishermen looking to set sail to Los Suenos or Jaco for the first time, here are a few tricks to help you get a handle on all the different catches and how best to bring them triumphantly on board.  

·      Put away your ego. When charter fishing, let the crew know your experience level. If you’re a first-timer, make it known. The crew is a valuable resource to give you as much help as you might need to land a big catch.
·      Use circle hooks. Fishers are required by law to use these types of hooks in Costa Rica, as they can help you effectively snag your catch without too much damage to the fish itself.
·      Call ahead. Get the number of your charter fishing operator before your tour and ask some hard questions. Does the crew speak English, and if so, how much? What kind of boats and equipment do they use? What is their methodology?
