sailfish in los suenos costa ricaThe Sailfish is a unique creature, famed for an elongated bill and a flared dorsal fin. It’s an undeniable prize for anglers, tempting them to Los Suenos every season.

The Sailfish isn’t easily caught, however. It instead boasts a strong sporting quality (an assessment of a particular breed’s strength, speed and movement patterns) that tests even the most experienced fishermen. Expect a challenge with every cast.


The Sailfish is an extremely rugged creature, utilizing its muscular body to quickly snap small-grade or even medium-grade tackle.


The Sailfish is a sprinter, achieving speeds of up to 65 miles per hour and effortlessly cutting through hide tide waves.


The Sailfish is famed for aerial jumps and sharp twists, tangling lines with a series of acrobatic movements.

These qualities suggest a powerful and relentless fish, which requires anglers to use high-grade tackle, sturdy monofilament lines and bait-and-switch techniques to avoid tiring. Do not underestimate the Sailfish. It's among the most difficult creatures to catch.
