Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Yellowfins In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 15, 2014 at 10:40AM by Lee Byard)

yellowfin tuna fishing los suenos costa ricaFew fish are as aptly named as the Yellowfin. This breed hulks along the warm waters of Los Suenos, with golden stripes running down its scales and catching the light. It’s one of the most distinctive offshore predators, and anglers often try to pull it onboard.

Having the right bait, therefore, proves crucial.

Live Bait

The Yellowfin has few dietary preferences, often eating whatever it can find. Anglers usually achieve the most success, however, with Sardines, Skipjacks and Pacific Mackerels. These fish have bolder smells and blood trails, making them more appealing.

Artificial Bait

The Yellowfin’s eyesight is exceptional. Most artificial bait, therefore, will be too easy for it to spot. Choose fluorocarbon leaders and cedar plugs to reduce line visibility and hide hooks.


Visit the Los Suenos Marina to find all Yellowfin baiting options.
