Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Blue Marlins While In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 7, 2014 at 06:52AM by Lee Byard)

blue marlin fishing los suenos costa ricaBlue Marlins circle the Los Suenos shoreline, teasing anglers with their knife-fine teeth and iridescent scales. They represent the best of Costa Rica’s big game fish, and they’re sought throughout the year.

Catching these creatures, however, requires more than top-shelf tackle and proper casting motions. Instead the right bait is needed. Costa Rica Fishing Adventures now offers suggestions on what to choose and where to find it.

Live Bait

Live bait is best when fishing for Blue Marlins, offering strong scents and fresh flavours. Choose oily breeds (like Tuna, Spanish Mackerels or Ballyhoos) that will flail on the line and generate powerful blood trails.

Artificial Bait

Artificial bait is not recommended for Blue Marlins but will suffice if no other option is available. Rely on skirted jigs and poppers. These will be more likely to entice fish, boasting brighter colors and better movement.


To purchase Blue Marlin bait visit the Los Suenos Marina. A variety of tackle shops are available there to offer both live and artificial options.
