Subject: What Are The Sporting Qualities Of A Snook In Los Suenos?
(Posted on Mar 15, 2014 at 04:30PM by Lee Byard)

snook fishing los suenos costa ricaIn the shallow waters of Los Suenos swims the Common Snook. This fish, with its gray coloring and slim body, is often dismissed by anglers. It lacks the prestige of big-game breeds, like the Blue Marlin or the Sailfish.

For first-time fishermen, however, the Snook’s sporting quality profile can prove tempting.


The Snook is a thin-boned fish, rarely exceeding forty pounds. It isn’t noted for its strength and can be captured with medium-grade tackle.


The Snook is a sprinter, achieving speeds of up to 45 miles per hour.


The Snook is an exceptional fighter. It will struggle against the line for hours, repeating a series of lunges, dives and tugs.

While many anglers prefer larger breeds, the Snook is an excellent option for novices. This lightweight but fierce fish will provide an exciting challenge for first-timers without risking their tackle or equipment.
