red snapper fishing los suenos costa ricaThe Red Snapper is an unforgettable breed. Its powerful frame and exceptional coloring makes it a favorite of anglers, and its delicious flavor makes it a popular choice for restauranteurs.

Tracking this fish along Los Suenos’ shallow waters requires large-grade tackle, drifting techniques and the proper bait.

Live Bait

Live bait is typically recommended for Red Snappers. Options like Pilchards, Minnows and Tuna are ideal, offering strong blood trails and sharp movements.

Artificial Bait

Artificial bait is not typically suggested for fishing. Red Snappers, however, are the exceptions to this rule, responding well to droplines and poppers. Choose options that are durable and brightly colored.


The Los Suenos Marina offers the best bait for Red Snappers. Rely on seasoned shop owners to select both live and artificial items.
