(Posted on Apr 21, 2014 at 10:50AM by Lee Byard)

striped marlin fishing los suenos costa ricaAnglers craving deep-sea battles often seek out Striped Marlins. These massive fish boast superior strength and indomitable wills, and reeling them always proves exciting. They will fight against the line every time.

Luring them to the boat, however, should not be a challenge. It should instead be easy and this is achieved with the right bait.

Live Bait

The Striped Marlin is a premier predator, willing to hunt anything that crosses its path. Choose highly flavorful options, like Mackerels and Squids, to catch its attention and draw it close to the boat.

Artificial Bait

The Striped Marlin responds best to fresh bait. Anglers using rubber-skirted lures and trolling lures, however, can catch one. Be sure that these options are brightly colored, with possible mirror or feather embellishments to increase interest.


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