Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Jack Crevalles In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 13, 2014 at 10:05AM by Lee Byard)

jack crevalle fishing los suenos costa ricaThere is a scavenger in Los Suenos. The Jack Crevalle, with its forked tail and lean body, moves easily through the rocks, foraging for food with sharp teeth. It’s known as one of the premier inshore predators, and anglers often try to catch it.

Without the right bait, however, they won’t succeed.

Live Bait

The Jack Crevalle will eat anything that crosses its path. Anglers wanting to lure it away from the reefs, however, should consider using bait that leaves thicker blood trails (such as Squids, Bluefish or Spanish Mackerels).

Artificial Bait

The Jack Crevalle is among the few fish that will greedily attack artificial bait. Choose top-water plugs and skirted jigs for the best results, as these will survive the Jack’s powerful jaws.


The Los Suenos Marina offers the best Jack Crevalle baiting options.
