Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Spanish Mackerels In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 10, 2014 at 09:50AM by Lee Byard)

spanish mackerel fishing los suenos costa ricaThe Spanish Mackerel, with its lean frame and slick scales, is often used as bait. Los Suenos anglers will toss this fish into the water, relying on its oily scent to attract larger prey.

Those wishing to catch the Mackerel, however, must choose a different baiting option.

Live Bait

The Spanish Mackerel is a scavenger, consuming anything in its path. This provides many baiting outlets for anglers. Best results, however, are achieved with smaller, pungent breeds (such as Shrimp, Sardines and Mullets).

Artificial Bait

The Spanish Mackerel, due to its predatory nature, responds well to artificial bait. It will attack spinners, silver spoons and drift jigs as they pass. Keep these items small, thin and brightly colored to attract the most attention.


The Los Suenos Marina boasts the best bait for Spanish Mackerels. There anglers will find many shops that carry both live and artificial options.
