Subject: What Are The Sporting Qualities Of A White Marlin In Los Suenos?
(Posted on Mar 28, 2014 at 03:12PM by Lee Byard)

white marlin fishing los suenos costa ricaThe White Marlin is a rare breed. Its translucent scales and faint stripes mark it as unique in the deep waters surrounding Los Suenos. Its powerful body and quick speeds, however, make it just as tempting as its Blue and Black siblings.

A spectacular sporting quality profile is to be expected.


The White Marlin is a large creature, reaching up to 400 pounds and exceeding 10 feet in length. It’s noted for its strength and can easily topple poles and anglers alike.


The White Marlin is quick, using its bullet-like body to sprint through the ocean at 50 miles an hour.


The White Marlin proves vicious in a fight, leaping constantly out of the water and cutting at lines with its sharp bill. Blitz patterns are common.

Capturing a White Marlin is a feat few will experience. Those who do snag one, however, must be cautious. This fish can quickly overpower anglers, dragging them overboard and snapping poles. Always use a fighting chair to maintain the right stance and let charter crews provide extra support during a reel-in.
