sailfish los suenos costa ricaCosta Rica’s fish, despite their impressive sizes and powerful forms, are delicate. Their scales are easily ruined by overzealous anglers, and their fins can snag on barbed hooks and metal wires.

Understanding how to properly handle every Marlin, Sailfish and Wahoo is, therefore, important.

While fishing in Los Suenos anglers should remember these suggestions:

Never dangle a fish by its jaw.

Never pull a fish on-deck with just a line. Use a net instead to avoid damage.

Choose de-hookers to quicken the release process.

Support a fish by holding its body with both (gloved) hands.

Never keep a fish out of the water for more than fifteen seconds at a time.

Have a venting tool nearby to remove excess air from a fish's bladder.

Utilize these tips while sport fishing in Los Suenos. They help to ensure the safety and survival of every Costa Rica breed.
