Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Black Marlins In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 19, 2014 at 09:51AM by Lee Byard)

black marlin fishing los suenos costa ricaThe Black Marlin is a prize for any angler. Its speed, strength and aggression make it a challenge to catch, and trying to reel one in can demand countless hours and endless patience.

It also requires the right bait. Costa Rica Fishing Adventures suggests using these options.

Live Bait

The Black Marlin, like most breeds, responds best to live bait. Its powerful bite, however, can turn solid foods into chum, scattering them across the sea. Use sturdy breeds like Squids or Skipjacks. These will last longer and will keep Marlins centered near the ship.

Artificial Bait

The Black Marlin prefers fresh fish. Artificial options will suffice, however, when necessary and can be used to great effect while trolling. Choose large-skirted lures and hybrid skooners for best results, and be certain that these are attached to durable monofilaments.


Visit the Los Suenos Marina to find all Black Marlin baiting options.
