Subject: Choose Oily Fish While Chumming In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 4, 2014 at 01:32PM by Lee Byard)

chumming in los suenos costa ricaTrying to lure fish to the surface is no easy task. Along the coast of Los Suenos are endless hiding places: rocks, shelves and coral reefs. All prove tempting for Striped Marlins and Mahi-Mahis, keeping them tucked away from even the most persistent lines.

Chumming is, therefore, recommended. It provides anglers with greater control, allowing them to more efficiently lead fish to their ships. Without the proper kind of bait, however, this method will fail.

Choose oily fish while chumming in Los Suenos. Slick-scaled creatures (such as Mackerels, Bluefish or Herrings) have stronger scents and flavors. They remain heady, even when exposed to the water for long hours, and will leave more pungent blood trails. This proves essential when trying to lure fish toward a charter boat.

Finding oily bait is a simple task. The Los Suenos Marina boasts many shops and will provide the best available options. Rely on seasoned fishermen to choose chum that is as durable as it is enticing.
